If you have the patience for prep work yes. Doing things yourself is usually cheaper if you do it correctly. You save money on labor and often times equipment/parts.

Only took about 3 hours to take off the trim parts, sand the cab down good, and mask off the windows, then an hour to paint it. Can't see why it'd take longer than 5 hours to decently prep a truck with a bed too. I mean you can take as long as you want and take it down to bare metal, but for a decent prep job it shouldn't take too long.
