Paint vs Powder?

Guys - I have the PSC HD Crossmember. I'm getting ready to put it on. I can't decide between rattle can & powder coat.

Powder Coat? Durable, maybe too thick to fit in the brackets, tough to touch up.
Rattle Can? Easy & quick, easy to touch up, not as durable.


What do you guys think?

if you take your JEEP off road powder coat is a waste in my opinion. why scratch a hundred dollar powder coat instead of a 7 dollar rattle can paint job.

^ This.

I'm for powdercoating bumpers and metal fenders since they have a less frequent rock meets metal ratio. But IMO, anything under the jeep should just be rattled and save your $$ for hookers, porn or other more worthwhile expenditures.

If your using the jeep enough to need a new cross member the powdercoat would just be a waste of money. Spray it and be done.

Thanks guys for the quick response. I was looking for a powdercoat place nearby but my gut said "what are you thinking? It's a crossmember for cryin' out loud!"

Rattle can here I come!

No bedliner, no powder coat. Just use a durable rattle can enamel. My entire rig is rattle can. No worries ever.

You pay for porn?? Shame on you. (not for the porn, but for the paying for it)
I voted rattle can. If it's not going to SEMA or a be a show rig, paint it.
