Thanks man, I bought 6 gallons of black. I have a sprayer at home. All you need is a Wagner type sprayer that can spray thin-thick. Wash the truck with dish soap in 70 degree weather make sure it's dry and mask the windows etc and start spraying.

5 gallons is honestly enough. I got like 7 coats with 5 gallons. The last gallon is to smoot out the body with some thin coats and touch up some lifted spots when I pulled the masking tape off lol

Do it!! The more coats you lay the easier to peel off when your tired of it

Yeah but I'll probably try just the tonneau cover first as the clear is pealing on it and I don't know how it will cover with that. I will probably just end up eating a new paint job instead cause of the tonneau cover and roof.
