Where can I find my Ram’s paint code?

Your Ram’s vehicle model will determine where its paint code is located. If you drive a
Ram 1500
or Ram Chassis Cab, the code should be located on the driver’s side door jamb, the firewall under your hood, the strut tower, or core support
If you drive a
Ram 2500
, the code should be on the manufacturer’s tag. Ram paint codes are either two or three characters in length and contain both numbers and letters.

What if there’s no paint code on the car’s label?

If you’re having trouble locating your Ram’s paint code, you can use the VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) to search for it online. A VIN is a 17-character code composed of letters and numbers.
The VIN code on your Ram should be located in the following places:
  • Most Rams have their VIN located under the windshield on the driver’s side. If it’s not there, try looking under the headlights, just on the support bracket of the radiator. 
  • Other common locations for the label include: under the passenger’s feet or on the door frame of the driver’s side.
  • If the label is missing or you can’t locate it, you can find your vehicle’s VIN by checking your insurance card or policy, or your vehicle title and registration.

Where can I get paint for my Ram?

Paint touch-up tips

You’ve got your paint and you’re ready to go! Below are some touch-up tips to get your Ram looking like new again:
  • Clean the damaged area with soap and water.
  • If the area is rusty, coat the area with a rust arrestor to prevent further damage. You can also use sandpaper to wear the rust away.
  • Apply primer to any scratch or ding that penetrates all the way to the metal part of your vehicle. If the scratch or ding is surface-level, primer is not needed. 
  • Paint. Stir your paint well before applying several coats to the damaged area. Allow the final coat to dry for at least 24 hours. 
  • Add a
    good clear coat
    for an extra barrier of protection. Apply several coats, allowing the final coat to dry overnight.
  • After three days, buff the area with a rubbing compound for a glossy finish!
Something to keep in mind: the severity and size of the damage caused to your Ram will determine how much paint you need. Some touch-ups will only require a paint pen or smaller paint pack, rather than a full can.
