Brush Guard - Powder Coat or Bed Liner

Hey guys, I have a grill guard on my 6.0 and it's powder coated. It's about 8 years old and the finish is starting to crack. I'm curious if I should have it powder coated again or if I should have it sprayed with the same bed liner that I had my bed done with. Any opinions on this?

I have had great luck with bedliner. I personally like the textured look. It may be harder to clean the texture vs the smooth powdercoat.
Either way, you should take a grinder or wire wheel and get all the rust out before re-coating.

I have the grill guard down to bare metal for the most part. The cleaning aspect really seems to be the deciding factor at this point. I can get it sprayed for $150 with bed liner or powder coated for $200. Still undecided. I think the textured finish of bed liner would look cool and maybe I could just pick up a good firm bristle brush to clean it.
