Line-X is amazing, but flat black is cheaper and easier to fix when you scratch it. I would probably do flat or semigloss black if I were you.

Sweet bumper but I agree with Matt that that winch is kind of low.

line-X is pretty nice and they do have a lifetime guarantee, but every time you scratch it you will have to take it off the truck, make an appointment, drop it off for a day then go pick it up and put it back on again. Just get some bedliner in a rattle can. its not nearly as heavy duty as the real stuff, but for $20 or so its hard to go wrong. way tougher than regular rattle can, just as simple to apply and touch up and super cheap. That's what i have on my bumpers.
