Must be a Monday or a Friday truck? Honestly I donít know. Iídíve thought maybe someone changed the glove box door. Maybe try a car fax and see what pops up? Just out of pure curiosity lol.

X2, make sure the VIN on the RPO sheet in the glove box matches the VIN on the body. Not unheard of to swap glove box doors from a junkyard if the factory one breaks.

I know I had a friend do some paint work on my truck a while ago, and the paint code was coming up weird. Oddly enough it is dark blue metallic.

Whats the chances of us seeing the RPO Codes?

Sometimes there is another 3 digit RPO code that specifies a color.

Since GM recycles some of the paint codes, there might be a cross over.

Try WA9539

My truck-same year-same color-same issue, when I went to get paint. Ended up taking a fender flare to the auto body supply shop and they mixed up a single stage Omni pretty close (looks a shade darker but maybe my truck is sun faded a little). And of course musta tossed the mixing paperwork and the can. 1FastBrick maybe right, that number sounds familiar.

I found 5 rattle cans of this color at Real Deals and is a pretty darn close match as well.

U9095 comes up as "GM Polo Green Metallic". 52D comes up as "Dark Green Metallic". I know GM uses three different types of paint codes (including the WA code), but dang.....

On the last row, 47U is the RPO for the body color on your truck.

I bet it's Called Polo Green on some models and also Dark or Medium Green Metallic on others.

I bet if you had the dealer print off the RPO Sheet It would show a green color. My parts guy at the dealer did that for me on a truck I was rebuilding. It was kind of cool to see what some of the Codes mean

PS. I am always right...
Sorry, couldn't resist

The 52D and 52I are interior colors and trim.

Lets go for what the call "Neutral" (Light tan) with Cloth Interior.
