that all depends on if you want it to look like an original paint job. then you have to remove the interior and all. thats not cheap. you might get a decent paint job just spraying the outside/doorjam's for around 3k. i would just leave the truck its original color. atlantic blue is a very nice color.

3000.00 Better learn how to paint .
If you want a "quality paintjob" to change a blue truck to red and not know it was blue and the extras you want 7000 +

I have had my share of paint nightmares!

Be very leary of a shop that says they will do it for 3 grand. A change like that should cost you in upwards of 5 grand in the least. The truck has to be dismantled to properly do it including removing the bed or atleast moving it back a couple of feet so you can paint inbetween the bed and the cab.

or if you are set on the change talk to a shop & see what you can do yourself to cut costs. (ex. removing interior)

:D i`d just keep it blue,or take the money you was going to paint it towards a red dodge. use that money to help absorb the neg equity. they have like $4000 in rebates for 06 rams..:D
