    Hey Gang,

    How's your ARIES bullbars holding up?

    I can't remember exactly when I bought mine, maybe 1.5-2 years ago??

    The black powercoating is starting to pit and rust through and its startin to look like crap. I drive my truck on the roads/highways - so its not exposed to any excessive amount of flying objects to pit the paint. Bugs & salt water from winter road spray...

    I've had it off last year and It looked decent then....I used stainless polish to clean the screen underneath.

    What gives? This thing shouldn't be looking like this only after 2 years?

    So, you had it powder coated AFTER you bought it? Which one did you get, the chrome or black one?
