If you are going for that "show" look then powdercoat. If you are treating the bumper as a skid plate then forget it. As you drop off that ledge that you thought you'd clear and hear that metal on rock sound, maybe even have to give it a little gas to get those rear wheels in contact with the ground, you'll be glad you didn't spent the extra money on the paint. I'm happy with that 20 foot look. Ok 50ft...
