Id like to do the same thing to mine. You can get line-x color matched. It looks good and it'll be functional.

oh cool, i didn't know you could do that. i guess that would make it easier to do it yourself huh? I need to check into that. It has to be a lot cheaper that having it painted. thanks !

If you want to paint the bottom to match the rest of the truck, you have to sand down both sides from top to bottom, then repaint the bottom and blend it into the upper section, then clearcoat both sides from top to bottom. That is how you do it right and the only way most body shops will do it. I've looked into it and the price I got was around $2,000 with me removing all the badges, lights, bumpers, etc. and the body shop doing the sanding/prep/painting.
