Had mine powder coated and it cost around 150.00 to get the mid width and the crash bar protector done.

Good job! Looks awesome!

I was going to do the spray bedliner method to save some $ but I got a good deal from the local powdercoating company.

They did a great job on the bumper. And I made sure they got the inside of the bumper powdercoated well so it doesnt rust since its raw steel.

Im actually a Marine Aviation Mech and we rattle can everything... The best technique is to hold the can 6-8" away and paint the width not the length(there is more chance for you to not hold the can at an even distance threw out, there for the paint will be uneven) and do short bursts. Start spraying off one side, move across the project and release. And then repeat moving down slightly. The first coat should just be a dusting of paint. This is to provide the most even finished results. You will not be disappointed. I just did my fender flares and bumpers with rust-o-lium spray bed liner and mine look OEM new. Any questions just message me and ill explain a little more in depth.

For anyone who's never rattle canned before, just take your time. There was a week of trial and error for me . . . Great feeling paint and install on your own!
Turned out great! Now if it gets banged up or scraped, you can fix it on your own.

Just don't go crazy now, painting every thing in sight.

This is similar to the grip I use. Rust-oleum 243546 Spray Can Grip Handle - Amazon.com It keeps constant pressure on the nozzle so there isn,t as much fluctuation.
+1 on this all day long. Rustoleum Truck Bed Liner and a pistol grip. 2 or 3 light coats and you're good to go.
