you can pretty much powdercoat anything as long as it doesn't melt while baking.

There was an episode of extreme 4x4 a few weeks back. They put a lift on an f-150 at some truck show in colo. I think. They had a set of MT classic lock's powder coated. They left the lock rings polished. It looked killer.

Thanks. I called around after I posted this and found a place that'll do it for $250 for all 4. That's if I strip them down. I'm gonna see how the paint job I did on the wheels lasts before I get them powder coated. I could use that $250 on something else.

The best strip down is beadblasting. I hear there's acids you can use also though. Definately paint them yourself though, they'll look great.

I've already painted them. I was checking into powder coating just in case the paint don't hold up to this Mississippi mud during deer season.
