I wish mine had black carpet.

The other two colors wouldn't be a disaster, but the gray is definately the one to go with.

charcoal looks pretty good to me, if you get grey its just matching everything else in the truck and im not any interior designer but too much of a color doesnt always work. and with black its almost out of place cuz you have grey everywhere then you throw in black carpet and imo it wouldnt really fit. but yea my opinion is charcoal, but initially its up to you.

The dirt issue really depends on what kind of dirt you are bringing into the truck. Personally I would never want a black interior because I work in a cabinet shop and no matter how hard I try to clean off at the tend of the day Im always covered in beige sawdust, and so are my vehicles. For me (besides beige) grey works best, but even on my old Ranger with the grey the seats started turning beige after awhile between hi-powered vacuumings
