yup Line X can actually match your paint code, I believe Rhino can do the same now also. You can get a regular, semi-gloss or gloss finish too, looks good IMO.
Jesse Rohr of MBRP did that to his and it looked great. His truck will be in the next Diesel Power mag. check it out.

Your truck looks good, I wouldnt rhino line it. It looks good when you first do it, but over time it gets tough to keep it looking clean because of the texture. If you want the tan gone, I would spend the extra cash and have it painted.

What if you just had it painted at a paint shop in matte black? I've seen a couple chevy/gmc trucks around that are all painted matte black and it looks pretty sweet....? Then you could just have the tan painted over and maybe a thin pinstripe so the edge isn't terribly obvious....

I have a friend that had a white/tan truck, and got the tan painted over with white and didn't fade it up, just left the line. It looks fine when the truck is clean, but dirt really likes to sit in that line and you can really tell... Wouldn't recommend that...

Just make sure you get like a semi gloss if you go that route. I have a true matte black motocross helmet, and it looks like crap no matter what I do to it. I think a semi gloss would be a better look as long as its visibly different than the high gloss factory paint. I think it'd be a sweet look if you got matte black wheels also.
