:Haughty - put off voice: WELL! The LEAST you could have done is posted pics of it in the buff!

What kind did you get?

Why didn't you just paint it? SO MUCH cheaper!
Maybe it's just me, but after my few experiences with powder coated items, I'll go paint from now on. At least when it gets scratched it can be touched up, doesn't flake off and won't rust off underneath.
06 Rubi with some sort of double ended, chrome knobbed, cross threaded, infinitely adjustable, frequently breakable, worn out flammywhammers zip tied onto it.
It used to be a jeep thing... til that sh!t broke!

I have a local guy that powder coats for me. That stuff is bullet proof if done correct. I raced biked for 20 years and all my bike frames got coated. I had Robert from dirt worx build me up something to work for my needs.

i have heard nothing but good things about dirtworx.. how long ago did you order it?

I'm in the same boat pretty much, ordered bumper and carrier from 4wd over a month ago, but it was all on back order, I have the bumper on as of a week ago. But now i'm waiting on the carrier so I can get the freakin 33" tire out of my room haha

Live well, Love much, Offroad often
