The color is "Cool Vanilla Clear Coat". There is a chart on site somewhere...

I have ALWAYS had great color matches using Automotivetouchup.com.

COOL VANILLA WHITE must darken with age.
SOOO BIG's rear bumper cover was repainted as a parts of repair using the original color code for COOL VANILLA WHITE. When reinstalled we discovered it was too light. The repair shop and the auto paint store worked together to get a better match. We removed the rear spoiler and the auto paint store used it to computer read for a better color match.
I imagine you'd experience this miss match with a Chrysler Touch up kit.

SOOO BIG's rear bumper cover had to be repainted, the first paint mix didn't quite match. . . . . . . . . . . . . . A second effort was more acceptable.

Below is Chrysler's touch up paint kit with clear coat. A great product, but because the original COOL VANILLA WHITE darkens with time, the touch up kit's just a bit too light to use anywhere but door edges and hidden areas to prevent rust.
As I recall, for the first year or so after the repaint, I had a similar touch up kit from Chrysler that I used successfully. Good color match. I guess that color match was successful because of the age of the paint.

This same auto Paint store made me an aerosol spray can of silver paint, matched from a piece of a silver passenger side air bag cover I found at a salvage yard. I repaint SOOO BIG's center radio bezel to match the other silver dash parts. I think it cost about $24.00. This might be an option you could use to get some matching touch up paint.
