They maybe custom mixed colors.
A lot of shops and even more so for custom shops now have their own "color lab" to mix a color they want.

The only thing I can say is if you cant reach out to the owners of them trucks to ask on color, bet custom mix on both, you will need to look at factory colors.

Best thing to do is hit dealer ships and walk the lots till you see a color you like. Once you know what it is on and the year it would be easy to get the code.
Heck the code maybe on the window sticker.
Don't forget to look at import lots also.

I use Sherwin Williams paints and just used a 1967 Jaguar XKE's Opalescent GunMetal on a project. Paint code is JAG-7402A

Very impressive color.
