New bumpers

So I just ordered myself some new bumpers (front and rear) in just metal. Was thinking of having them Line-X'd or using some sort of spray can (ie Duplicolor, etc). Anybody have any experience with either? Not too worried about the cost to have done professionally but it would also be nice to have something that can be easily touched up (spray can) as long as it doesn't just start chipping. Also, do the spray can materials come off easy if I didn't like the end result?

I got my fenders and corners powder coated at Ame coatings here in Bismarck. Price was very reasonable and they turned out great.

Still waiting on them, but got a PSC brawler lite for the front bumper and the Knuckles Offroad Rear bumper with slant back tire carrier. Will definitely put up pictures once I get them.

Have you had good experience with powdercoating? My concern is for scratching and if it needs touch-ups.

Anybody with experience or equipment to remove the crash bar on the JK. The bumper I got also has a front skid and the crash bar is not really needed and either needs trimmed or removed. I really have no experience in that type of modification. Sounds like it wouldn't be hard to do just need the right equipment and to paint afterwards to prevent rust. Anyone?

I'd imagine a sawzall would do the job...or a blue tipped wrench. Sawzall would leave it cleaner and less grinding to clean up the cut after.

I've had some but not a lot. Most of the time I've always spray canned my stuff. It's easy touch up but it always seemed that you had to do the whole thing or you could see that spot you touched up anyway. The powder coating cost me 50 bucks per piece. For that price you can't go wrong. I would have had that much in materials plus time to just spray can them. They sand blasted them and then washed the parts to get rid of oils for that price too. If I scratch them up my plan is to just get them redone after a few years of wheeling to freshen things up again. Ill try to get some pics tomorrow and post them up of them.

I can get it off for you if you don't have the means.
