Paint match for grey overland “rock sliders”

I have a set in good overall shape but I need to address some rust. Has anyone come across a good paint match for the grey?

I think i would color match them to the body color myself, then you can use the factory paint code to get paint in spray cans. Dupli-color has many of the old Chrysler colors available. you can find them all over the place.



Next thing would be some Bedliner material in black. I have seen alot of people using this Raptor spray bedliner kit with good results. Bedliner spray would hopefully be more durable as well.

I was thinking I'd just have Lordco scan them with their paint code scanner and use whatever comes up.

Bedline is very course I was going to bedline mine until I seen at a body shop what bedline looks like and I think that rubbing on my leg getting out would hurt if it scratched me.

Damn, i dont know how they make bedliners over there, but i have NEVER worried about scratching myself on it over here. I have had several trucks with this stuff in the bed, and have crawled all over it. Slept on top of it too...

I can understand this. I have Line-X in my Chevy, and it is more similar to sand paper than some of the other bed liners that are more rubbery. I used Herculiner (I believe) on my sliders, spare mount, etc. because I can walk into any auto parts store and buy it, and I need to touch up just about after every offroad trip. It isn't as abrasive.
I did paint match several items on my rig and used https://www.automotivetouchup.com/ They're a bit pricey, but the color is dead on. I debadged, wet sanded and repolished my rig after purchase, if that helps explain my analness. I spent about a month working on it's natural 20 year old bling.

I chucked black bedliner on mine. I'm just up the road in SW19 and I venture into Surrey fairly often... if you'd like to see how mine came out, feel free to shoot me a PM

After a lot of phone calls I was finally able to get a factory paint code for these. It took a fair amount of research. Not all dealers had the information available either. The code is not present in Wjjeeps. It’s a sub code of the VINs paint code.

Just getting the rust off. Will post pictures when re sprayed

Interesting to see those, SDG - the rust is in exactly the same place as it is on mine. I painted mine in a rust converter, then red oxide primer, and when I get round to painting them will use a 'stone chip' grey paint.
