I have seen paint jobs from Maaco look better then the best body shops around my house. It really is not about the shop. It is about the person doing the work. If the body man cares about his work. Then your truck will look great and last a long time. If the body man cares about his paycheck then your truck may look great for a while.
When doing things like this it is best to shop around and get a few different estimates. You do this before you make your decission. If there is no major damage to be repaired. Then it may just be a simple sand down prime and repaint.
Another thing you can do to make your cost cheaper is to do all the prep work yourself. Like sand down the body, repair any dents if needed, prime it and wet sand it. Then take it to the bodyshop ready for paint so all they have to do is tape it off, wipe it down and spray it with color. If you do this it may cut 40% of the cost off the bodyshop bill.
