We offer powder coating as an option for our Winch Mount Bumpers and FJ Camera Armor. While some will still opt to paint or coat their own bumpers (this article discusses more), many of you prefer to receive your bumper or cam armor coated and ready to install.
We have created some custom formulations to match the factory colors using quality Tiger Drylac powder. The finish is a 20% matte with a decent texture and is available in black, gray
or silver. Be aware that powder coat will still show some marks from the bending process and any welding beads or heat deformities.
Many manufacturers will only chemical etch then spray one coat of powder. We commercially blast then shoot a coat of zinc primer followed by two coats of powder. This application will stand up much better to weather, road debris and the northern winters. When you see people complaining about coating issues on competitor's products it's because they are likely chemically etching then spraying one coat of powder, the bean counters rule those decisions. We, on the other hand, want your U.S. Off Road products to have a coating that will stand up to the abuse our products are designed for.
While we try to keep coated product in stock, please expect a 4-7 working day delay in shipping if you purchase powder coat. Custom colors are available, please contact us to quote you accordingly.
Please understand that even though we go to great lengths to package and protect the powder coat we are not be liable for any shipping damage to the coating itself. Luckily it rarely happens.
Pro tip: Powder coat is similar to a single stage paint which has no clear coat, so be sure to clean out any dirt and debris after months of use and road grime, give it a bath then wax it. Yes, a good coat of wax will help prolong your coating....and don't laugh but your winch housings could use a coat too from time to time!
