Painting my truck

So it's starting to get warm and not to many bugs out yet, but ever since i got my truck i hated its paint. its like that old green that every psd had seems like lol. It's a E99 btw with extended cab and long bed, I just fixed all the dings by banging them out but it stills has scratches in it and its faded. I want a blue or a red color not sure yet, but im going to paint it myself cuz no one in hell im paying over 3 grand for a paint job i can do myself. Im asking what would be the best paint to buy for her, and im shooting for that show room paint job and want it to last long. Thanks everyone

DuPont and PPG are both great but more important than paint is prep. Good clean primed steel is the best!
