Yeah well talk him down $50 because it's not the color you want. I think, NO, I know that powder coatting is not the way to go for trail use or front bumper. I have this bumper on my fj along with a Bandi mount. After one rock chip and many miles rust works it's was under the powder coat. You don't even notice until it turns into a canser like mess. Then try stripping it off! Rattle can it with a really good paint then see a rock chip take a little sand paper and hit it with paint. Done and done.

I'm no expert. Jason will chime in on this. But you'd have to remove all the grey powdercoat down to bare metal to re-powdercoat black or rattle can it black. Big job if you're doing it yourself. You'd have to have access to a blaster and an area to do it. It would take a lot of :cheers::cheers:

Its a "b" and by the time you spend the time to "do it right", ship and have the piece painted, line x'd or powdercoated you might as well buy a new one from Jason directly. :clap:

I'm no painter but I think you could just hit the powder coat with some sand paper to scuff it up and just paint over it.
