Anybody been running an ADD front bumper for a couple of years? curious how their powdercoat holds up. Been looking at a "Stealth fighter", wondering if I'd have to have it recoated before I mount it with a high perf. PC job with primer to make it hold up to rock chips etc better. Nothing stops it all, but good PC instead of mass production helps. A steel bumper with many chips would be a rust prob. after a while. Probably would also re-machine a couple of side light plates with oblong holes to replace the "Stealth fighter" logos machined into them....

As for the stealth fighter plates, I used a 1/8” aluminum and cut it out to fit. I also run it without plates at all and looks pretty good. 417FD6EE-0928-4968-B771-C3A2050247F7.jpeg

had my ADD front bumper on since 2017. bought a can of flat black spray to touch up chips. If I were to do it again Id have the bumper and attached skid plate line-x'd prior to install.

I had mine stripped and professionally powdered to match the black exterior. Wasn't cheap, but I live in the rust belt and I've read too many threads on here about rust problems.

Get it Line-X’d if you like the look, it’s only like $300 if it’s off the truck. Here’s a pic after wiring up the fogs.

my trucks black too, did you do gloss black? How’s it holding up? Appreciate the comments about LineX but not the look I want.
