I replced the tailgate on this truck and found out the paint was super expensive and wasn't available in the cheaper brand so the paint guy matched up a color for me in the cheaper brand. I think the paint code was for a hyundai...

all reds are crazy expensive, colors with a lot of pearls are too. my color code SU = Amazon Green was $90 for a pint in Dupont. you can buy a gallon of white or black for $40

depends on shape of the truck, what color it already is. huge factors.... lets say nice truck no body work, and its black.... to completely change a color, all jams, & not inside of bed. 5yr warranty with all high-end products. I wld charge $2500-$3500.00 depending on some "finishing" factors..... sure thrs ppl that cost more or less..

Just a heads up....

Pictured above is a '00 only color: (Code B6) Mandarin Copper Metallic. The OP's 98-99 is (Code BG) Bright Amber Metallic. Bright Amber is what John is commenting on and posted pics of. It looks Toreador Red(dark red) with a pinch of orange in it. Changes in different light and is really a neat color....low light = darker red. Direct sun = orange. I remember when John had that truck and got paint, they matched it up to a Kia color at a cheaper price.

Here's another view to better show the color of Bright Amber (BG)



Here's Mandarin (B6)


----------

PS: I believe this is the Kia color in question:



It's either Sunset Orange Metallic (code O6) or Electric Orange Metallic (code O9)

Matrix brand is good. I'd go with dupont clear if u use matrix though. Matrix will run you about 300 a gallon and clear is about 200 a gallon.
