Many products are shipped with a powdercoat finish. These are done at no extra charge and are to protect your parts from rust or corrosion, while giving them a nice finish. They are not intended to be show-quality, but simply a protective finish. There are no guarantees or warranties on the finish of the products. If you require a show-quality finish or prefer another method of coating your products, you may request that the parts be sent in bare steel so that you can finish them to your liking. We do not build show truck parts; our parts are made for daily drivers and off road trucks. Nicks and scratches are part of the off road lifestyle. Some customers find that paint or bedliner material is more durable for their application, so we give you the option for bare steel or powder coat on all products that we manufacture. If products show up with powdercoat banged up from shipping, you have our apologies, and we recommend touch up paint be used to cover those areas if you are concerned with the way it looks.
