I pulled the padding off my roll bar because it was ghetto wrapped with electrical tape. I painted the bar, didn't powder coat. Looks way better but I do smack my head occasionally while wheeling, ouch. Will probably put new padding back on at some point, minus the electrical tape.

If you have a black TJ, the roll bars should be black already. Why spend the money to powdercoat?

I have a black TJ and IIRC the bars are gray under the padding.

not a powder coat fan myself. every little chip and it rusts like crazy underneath. maybe that's just up here because of the winter road salt/sand, but i don't do anything powder coated.
