Not sure but they can do bumpers, like the pre-runner type, so maybe.

It's not as flashy as it sounds. The black will match the coilovers and the blue will match my truck and the coils.

I thought about just going with paint or bedliner but decided on powdercoating.

Thanks, they look better in person. Some of the color variations and textures were lost in the picture. At least it appears that way on my laptop monitor.

I hope to have everything installed and welded up this weekend. I will still have to do little things here and there before it will be complete though. Like the alignment, stainless brake lines, etc. That should only take a day or two so I am looking at being completely finished by next Wednesday at the latest.

Time is my problem. Work has been crazy lately. Not to mention it gets dark too fast now. Hate the time change.

Thanks! I paid $20 for the powdercoating, but I had already cleaned them up. Not to mention, I know the guy who did it for me.

Great price, I used to have a connection too but he sold the business now I need to locate a new source if I go that route.
I am thinking about asking the Bed Liner guy to do it and see how much after that it will be a good blasting, etching and then Dupont paint.

ltr,

Thanks!

$100 seems a little high, but it would look nice! What color were you thinking of going with?

Does anyone know the bolt size and lengths we need for the coilover brackets? I figured someone might have the information handy so I don't have to measure it myself.
