Weird question, but are all the exterior painted parts removable?

I just found out I can get parts powder coated at work for a very low cost and I got to thinking. Can all of the painted exterior parts (at least the metal ones) be removed for paint? One guy I work with powder coated his older Wrangler with some OD green powder we had spare and it turned out good, but it was an older, smaller body. Im don't know that my JKU will come apart enough to get it done.

My new bumper gets powder coated in a couple days and the thought of a flat black JKU excites me.

Pretty much the entire tub of the Jeep, behind the doors, is not "removable".

FIFY.

Powdercoat and Jeep are not bedfellows. Just my opinion.

Agreed. Offroad means damage eventually. And damage means repair. I want that to be as easy (read that CHEAP) as possible.
