    I would like to see pictures of any MGM double cabs with nerf bars that are painted to match the body.
    I am considering getting stainless nerf bars (don't want them to rust and don't know which brand yet) and painting them to match the truck.

    Mine is not exactly what you are looking for (1st gen silver) but I have painted mine two-tone with the bottom MGM, and my nerf bars and bull bar also MGM. I like it and think it will look good on your truck. It kind of makes the nerf bars look like part of the truck instead of an after-the-fact bolt on.

    I don't have close-up pics, but this might give you an idea.

    I'm liking what I see so far. Any recommendations on the brand/type of paint to use?

    I had mine done with real automotive paint, base coat and clear coat. If you want to do it yourself you can get duplicolor spray cans at automotive supply stores (autozone etc.) or there are places online where you can order it. You just need the MGM color code, which you can find in your driver door B-pillar.

    more close-ups of mine.
