December 13, 2021 Tell me about color matching By default, every BringIt™ Tailgate comes with a matt black skin. This skin is UV protected so it will not fade. But you do have the option of having it color matched for your truck. This is a very popular option If you select this option after the order is confirmed you will receive an email asking for your VIN. We use this number to determine the exact color your tailgate needs to be painted. As with any color match, results can vary based on the age of your truck. The older your truck is the more chance it has experienced some fade in the paint. We match to the factory color. There’s a slight chance that the tailgate will be a little brighter looking than the rest of your truck. The way to get the most perfect match is to order the tailgate unpainted and then have your local shop color match your tailgate specifically which will take into the account the paint fade. However, this means the tailgate has to be disassembled, painted and reassembled. The majority of our customers prefer having us paint the gate in advance so they can just put it on the truck and be done with it.
