    I just ordered my all pro rear bumper for my 2007 Tacoma. I live in Edinburg, Texas and I cannot find anybody that does powder coat. I know when I do they are going to try and charge me enough to pay thier months rent at there place of business. What is a reasonable price to pay for this job since the bumper comes bare metal, really no prep work except cleaning. Please help guys before I get raped by these fools in the Lower Rio Grande Valley.

    No more then 200 for sand blasting and coating. I would have it sand blasted first if it were me.

    ^^^^ Def no more then $200. Id aim for around $140. They can do it in a large batch with other railings, ect. Had mine done by a friend for $80 including blasting. Id say about $50 worth of powder for a bumper.

    It needs to be sandblasted for sure. A local shop near me did my two sliders for $80. I would not pay over $100 for blasting and powder on one bumper. Another option is to epoxy chromate prime it, and apply Raptor Liner. I think a complete Raptor kit is about $100 which includes the gun, and you will have lots left over to dress up other items.

    nothing wrong with a good coat of primer and three layers of rattle can satin black. You scratch it, just sand smooth and repaint... good as new;)

    OP why not just use rattle cans? It is 100x less expensive and much easier to do touch ups on. If you wheel, when you drag that bumper across some boulders, you butt is gonna hurt when you see how much powder coating is gone.

    If you actually wheel your truck, don't bother powdercoating, it will look like shit after you beat it up. Paint it, much easier to repair.

    If you don't wheel it, go ahead and powdercoat it.

    The rattle can bedliner made by rustoleum is a nice topcoat too. Several good options in different price ranges have been offered. Powdercoat is good, but it's not the end all either. It can get scratched, can get gouged, you still get rust at seams, etc. It's not worth paying 100x more to get it.

    If you can find a local sand blaster that will blast it for a reasonable price i would do that regardless. Anything you put on will stick better.
