I think it is more a matter of how it affects your color scheme. Also white will look more dirty once it starts getting scratched up but I don't there is any structural/material difference.

Try Image Plastics 344-2190 or Plaschem 274-5505 in Anc. or CAC in Wasilla 376-7111 I believe they all stock black or White (natural).
Either will work fine.

Oh Yeah Steffan... I forgot you were in Alaska. I got all my UHMW at CAC in Wasilla.

Thanks for the replies, I ended up going with CAC, they had the black and Steve was very helpful (and the price was right!)
