all depends on your location. prices are goin to vary from place to place. my dad does body work and he normally charges $800-1500 to go back the stock color, plus what the paint and clear cost which depending on color can be up to $500 for just the paint and clear. Custom paint like mine he said will be $2000+ plus the paint

we had our 1999 Ext Cab repainted in March from factory white, which was painted green 10 years ago, to matte black. There was no real body damage or rust at all. We had two quotes from body shops. One for 4300 and one for 3500. We talked the guy who quoted 3500 down to 3000 and he did a great job. Be mindful that paint alone for a truck will cost between 500-1000. He painted door jambs and many inside areas and behind the cab.

I do not think it is possible to get any decent job done anywhere in the country for less than $2500. Even cheapo quickie Maaco type places will get 1500, and at that price, you usually do not get a real good job.

I say figure 2500-3500.

if it was being done to paint a truck to match a company fleet, say from white or red to some other color, then the Maaco special for $1000-$1200 is maybe acceptable. But if you are getting it done to a personal truck to bring it up to snuff, then there is just no way you can get a good job done for less than 2500.
