    trd sport with avid off road light bar, avid rock sliders. OEM roof rack, 12' LED light bar, and Sock monkey decals.
    have a question about powder coating. how much would you estimate it would be to do avid sliders and light bar?
    now i know it varies from every store and what type i choose to do.
    but just wanting to know if anyone else has these or ones similar size and how much it was?
    just want regular black, not glossy or anything.

    thanks for the input.

    I'd say around $200 would be a guess.

    thank you. in your opinion is it worth it to powder coat rather than the can spray stuff like pretty much spray paint.

    If you have the cash to get it powder coated, go for it. It's much stronger....

    I'd just hit em with some spray on bedliner. Cheaper and you can touch it up.

    paint it flat black with a rattle can. that way when you get is scratched, all you have to do is apply another coat. the powder coat will chip if it is hit by rocks.
