Touching up my Rubicon Express lift kit... paint color match?

I'm looking for a color match for my Rubicon Express Long Arm lift kit. Ive tried a couple Krylon grays and primer but cant find a match. Any help would be great.

Well that's good news... I think Are you saying you know what kind/color paint to use but you're not going to tell me?

rustoleum smoke gray is about as close to a match as I've found, and you can get it at Lowes and Home Depot

I sprayed mine with rustoleum hammered silver. Sure its not a perfect match but looks good and holds up a little better.

old post but the rustoleum smoked gray is a VERY close match...

If @ 1st you don't succeed, grind it, hammer it, weld it, drink a beer and try again.
