Refinishing brush guard - powder coat or bed liner?

I need to have my brush guard re-finished since the original powder coating is beginning to crack. Should I have it powder coated again or go with the same bed liner shop that sprayed my bed liner?

I vote bed liner. I powder coat for a living and it does scratch and it can also chip still (alot harder but still possible). The bed liner IMO is tougher if going with a good brand. I have tossed some real heavy crap in a truck and bed liner still looked great if it was powder it woulda been ruined. Most likely it will be close to the same cost if not bed liner be cheaper depending on what powder goes for around your area.

I was looking at line x for my grill guard and tail light guards. I am going to stop and get a price this week. Mine is due for something too.

Thanks for the input. I can get it powder coated for around $200 or sprayed with bed liner for $150. The thing that concerns me the most is the ability to clean it. Powder coat leaves you with a nice smooth finish that's easy to clean. I don't know what it will be like to clean bug guts off of bed liner.

I decided to go with powder coat because it's easier to clean. I wouldn't want to scrub dried bugs out of bedliner.
