    You can get color matched cans of spray paint that are pretty close too, at least close enough for a desert truck. My rear bedsides are Krylon but I do want to at least get a paint shop to make some cans a little closer, the color I used is pretty flat

    Found some dupli-color that some people are using at autozone. I will have to try it out. 7.50 a can for a relatively small can.

    Check out auto body paint stores when you get back. I buy mine from a place called Space Age Auto Paint and they mix their own colors and put into full size spray cans for $5-10 depending on the type of paint. You can color match anything from a brand new to old muscle car paints, they have it all stored

    As much $$$$ your spending on the build, isn't it a drop in the bucket to make it look good? Just have them take it to a shop at paint it while you are away lol.

    $1000 is way more than I want to pay for paint. Id rather keep that tucked away for an engine swap. or a light bar or other more functional items lol

    I do offroad all the way to work. But i need a truck or the bed :anonymous: and this time i wont cut the bed off. HAHA.

    A wrap will be the same as or more than paint. If I didnt have a race truck and a hook up I wouldn't do a wrap. You can do some amazing things with wraps and they are great if you're looking for a mutli color/design gig. For solid color though paint is your best bet.

    If you haven't looked in to it, I'd recommend considering plasti dip as a cheaper than paint alternative as well. Plenty of Google info on it and I know a guy who just recently sprayed his truck and could probably share some experience and info with you if you went that route. Definitely cheaper than $1000 and arguably more durable as well.

    Thanks man it has come along way. 4wd would just get me into more unnecessary trouble. Truck goes everywhere I want it to and more.
