Default After market bumpers - Ranch Hand

I have a pair of Ranch Hand front and rear bumpers on my Tundra. They are starting to rust a little and I would like to have them sandblasted and repainted. One option is to have them powder coated, which is what was done at the factory. I was wondering if epoxy paint would be a more durable coating? Are there any better options?

Thanks, Jerry

I'd look at spray bed liners like Linex or Rhino liner.

Jerry,
Not too many things that are a tougher finish than a powder coated finish. I might speculate that the original powder coating had some improper metal preparation.

I would suggest removing the bumpers, taking them to a good powder coating facility, have them sand blasted to remove the former finish and powder coat them again.

Good luck

The problem with powder coats is you don't have a good primer under it so once you get a chip the rust will undermine the powder coat. Sand Blast and then a good epoxy primer then a epoxy top coat. The problem with bed liner coatings is if you ever want to redo it they are very hard to remove and they will have the same problem as powder coat if rust starts under it keeps going undetected.
