Remember, with powdercoat, if you get any real deep gouges and you want to touch them up, it'll be real hard to match it with paint. That's the only reason I wish I didn't powdercoat mine, but it's holding up really well so far anyway.

I've read on Pirate that quite a few guys like flat black paint so they can just respray it anytime they want.

What's up with your front diff/CVs???

very nice man! I like that bumper. Better than a tube one. Fits well. I am glad you went that route. I was too worried about sending something that wouldnt fit right.

nice, like the bumper. I wouldn't powdercoat it. Just too easy to touch up rattle canning it and it will still look nice
