Does anyone know if you can still order Arrival Blue Metallic on an 06 LBZ? I don't see it in the brochure but it sure looks sweet and thought it might be one of those hidden codes or something. Anyone have any info?

As far as I know it was discontinued after 2004. That is why I have a 2004.5 not a 2005.

Typical GM move. Keep it for a few years and discontinue it.:mad: I like the color also.:D Try to find in a Crew Cab but only on X-Cabs.

well isn't that just sad, finally found a color I wanted and NOOOO the General says you didn't want that at all! geez... ok ok rant over. I finally settled for the Dark Blue Metalic but wish it was lighter. My last truck was Dark blue metalic and it was a bear to keep clean. It showed every spot on it, almost as bad as Black. Well thanks for all the replies nice at least knowing what happened to the color

Trust me there were very few Crew Cab Duramax trucks built in Arrival Blue. When I bought mine I was very determined that was the color I wanted. I was about 10 days late of being able to order one (orders for 2004's were cut off some time in April 04) and I had no choice but to search dealer stock for one. I finally found the one I have on July 8th in Des Moines ( about 200 miles from me) and called the dealer about it and actually bought it over the phone. I drove there the next morning and brought it home. What a guy won't go through just for a color, but I have to tell you I have had more compliments on what a good looking truck I have than I have ever had with any vehicle I have ever owned.
:ro)

I never cared for the color but I have 3 friends that did and bought it. Actually looks pretty good on the dually of one friend, but not so good on the 1/2 tons (jmo). I asked the dealer about why they dropped it and they said the inside name for it was "loser blue"...

Don't shoot the messenger!

A co-worker of mine had a 2003 2500HD CC Gasser in that color that I never really cared for, but I have seen pictures on here of members trucks in that color that are awsome looking. I think it all depends on how you accent it. It does stink that it is not an option anymore.

It was probably my favorite color of all time...I did everything but perform sexual favors to get one, but no dice. I really like the dark charcoal I have now and the GM Fire Red, but they're still not the same as Arrival Blue!

Maybe if we all complain enough they'll bring it back...
