I've also resprayed powder coat and used a head lamp to cure it.

It always looks close enough, definitely close enough on a frame.


I require things to do.

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.

it will do nothing to the value. it will not improve it and it will not lower value.
i also think, for the level of hassle, i'd do chassis saver and monstaliner myself.

'97 zj 5.2, some stuff, some other suff, and some things that even work sometimes.
