i can get you the paint but by the time you pay shipping you could of prob found it for cheaper and quicker locally..

check your autoparts store... take off the other sidze pillar or the grab handle from the driverside and see if you can find a color that matches

If Raul has the exact paint for Ford, then I'd go with that. Ford doesn't sell it anymore through their dealerships (at least that's what mine told me) for the pre-08 trucks anymore. I bought some at a local parts place and I'm not too excited about the color match....it's a little bit too light. Good luck.

more than likely the color he needs is medium graphite... best way to find out is give me the color code off your sticker on the inside door jam

P-stroke I am super anal to about my truck and I tryed that paint that I got from Wesco auto body and painted it my self and the way the arasal can laid the paint out it looked like ****. So I took it to a auotbody repair shop and paid $50 and they preped, primed and painted the pod and it looks asome.
