I am a big fan of powder coating. So far, I have done or got someone to powder coat my transfer case skid, full corners, sliders and a lot of brackets and all. The only downfall I have found is what someone else already mentioned.... touch ups. Other than that, find a good powder coater. I use a friend because he and his father are the only people I have found with in about 100 miles that does it and they let me do it all for free if I want. That being said, I have never had a piece peel or flake that they have done. The only bad experience with powder coating was when I bought my sliders from genright (only options was for them to come powder coated, steel) and they chipped with in the first week.
Well i have an entire paint shop and everything to use at my disposal. I have an oven large enough to fit my frame rails in along with all the powdercoating supplies needed, the gun, paint, etc. I just want to know if its worth it and what does it do to the jeeps value? im planning on selling it
I like powder coat as well, rattle can paint scratches off way to easy. I'd also suggest picking a good type of powder, there are like 4 or 5 types now. Some are more chemical resistant, others are UV resistant, no sure how much that matters under a jeep though. I spray painted my rear bumper and really wish I would have powder coated it.
