For me approximately 4 cans surprisingly, and I got in around 5 coats. Which is more than good enough. That is great man yea I started off with a light dusting on each and just got darker.

Uh no, it came with a flat black rubber coating, not painted. And plastic dip is the closest thing that look factory. Newer rangers are painted silver. Older ones are rubber type of stuff.
