    For a good overall paintjob, especially a color change where they have to paint things like doorjambs I'd say somewhere in the neighborhood of $3500 out the door. Its real hard to say without knowing the exact condition of the truck, whos painting it, how much they charge / hour, and what supplies they use.

    haha I am in the same situation (well I just want to get a new paint job)... I was quoted anywhere from $4500 to $12000 (I went to a custom paint place where the guy kept going on about how I should get flames, and everything). But I live in Alaska and the demand for this kind of work isn't really as big, and it's not like I have a lot of choices to pick from so basically they can make their own price. Anyways long story short I'll agree with codeman on around 3500 and up

    I got a price of $3000 to repaint my truck the factory color . That was including shaving the tailgate handle ,welding in the rollpan and removing doorhandles,moldings,the bed etc. I wish I would have had the cash to to that at the time .

    I'm hoping he'll still give me that deal when it's time. Even my parents said that was a really good price .

    You do understand that painting a car is an entire process right? Depending on where you go, there are several processes that need to be done to just prep the vehicle for paint. Like mentioned above...Maaco charges like a few hundred, but you need to have the vehicle ready, they dont sand or prep the vehicle, plus they just mask off the windows and wheels and paint. Whereas a quality shop will remove wheels and windows, and even paint the panels separately. Much more time and attention put into it than just blasting the paint on.

    Re: How Much does a paint job cost??

    ya price of paint sucks!!!!!! thats why im going with a solid paint only.... i bought some factory match paint for my old 96jimmy to paint the front end and 1quart of basecoat and clear coat still costs me 250bucks give or take cannt be for sure right now. but i can get some other paint from kirker for 50bucks for a gallon of paint now it aint stock!!!!!!! and its only a single process so base/clear. i went with this because its gonna be easy to touch up road chips and i just gotta lightly sand it and buff it to a nice shine!!!!!!

    hmmmm...how much would a flamed paint job, leaving the blue underneather and going with silver flames, with pinstripping, airbrushing skulls, etc. probably $1000 for everything. but then again, the painter is my brother and i only have to buy paint and supplies. lol.
