    I got a 2010 Tacoma and just ordered the Avid Offroad light bar....I'm thinking about getting it sprayed with line-x. Anyone done this or have suggestions? I also have 4 holes drilled for lights and i'm not sure if I should plug them or not.

    I just got one too. Powdercoat it. Its not too expensive to do and well worth it in the end.

    mine is line-x'd, and has held up amazing for over a year now. no fading, or damage AT ALL. i offroad all the time and have even pushed over a small tree with it (about 4"thick)

    as far as i know, im the only one on here with it line-x'd but i could be wrong

    check my gallery for more pics

    Did you plug the holes when you got it line-x'd? I'm afraid if I go line-x without plugging them It will be hell getting it installed....but I also don't want it to rust

    Just tighten them up good and tight, without stripping them obviously

    I got mine powder coated also. The guy said I could touch it up with a rattle can since the type of powder coating we used had the same look as the rattle can. I can find out the info later if you would like.
