custom powdercoating?

i just recently decided i wanted to build my xj up with a green/orange color sceme and i was wondering if anybody knows of shops that sell 4x4 parts (especially skid plates) that does custom powdercoating. I've already ordered my steering setup from rusty's in orange but id also like to know if anyone else does so i can explore my options for parts.

You will have to start looking for a place locally that does powder coating.You will not be able to order in a special color.

From the condition when received of large, heavy, steel Jeep parts I've had shipped, I would think buying them raw then having them custom PCed locally would be your best bet--they really get banged up from shipping (not that they won't look like crap in no time anyway, if you actually wheel them).

I agree with everyone else who has posted, you can also get your parts done in custom colors? Also, some companies that sell jeep parts, their powder coating is usually very thin to save costs. With my experiences having my own stuff powder coated, the local companies will coat the parts heavier which will keep them looking good longer. Remember, if you do have stuff powder coated, take everything you want in that color in at the same time. This way it may keep the costs down because they can spray everything in one shot.
