That looks like B5 blue. It's a chrysler/dodge color.
Do a google "image" search for B5 blue.

A lot of paint shops can scan colors and mix up exact matches. Problem is, a lot of them have minimum amounts they'll mix though.

For a couple of bucks, they will scan it for you and give you the code. You can then get a matching touch.

Youll probably have to go to a Detailing or Car Body Shop supply shop. Most of the time they make custom mixes of paint. Just bring your gas cap or whatever part you wish and you can most certainly get your custom paint, which will come in a can like this:



Ask them if its a 1 stage color (you dont need to clear coat) or if you need to apply a clear coat.

This is the best way I think you can get touch up paint for your truck. Maybe you might be able to get some touch up paint in the form of a pen, if that what you are looking for. Not all shops do this though.
