When you are adventuring off road a lot of the time, the elements can do a number on your vehicle. One of the areas that gets the most beat up when ripping through creeks, climbing rocks or tearing up trails is your truck’s paint job.
One of the best alternatives to painting your truck, Jeep, or off-roading car is powder coating. The process of powder coating is a great alternative to use when you are in need of a much more durable and protective finish on a metal structure, such as your off-roading vehicle. While not expressly used for vehicles, powder coating has become an immensely popular option for those looking to improve the look, quality and experience of their off-roading vehicle.
When it comes to simply having something powder coated, the price range is massive. A simple coating can cost anywhere as low as $10, with much larger jobs costing upwards of $3,000. It really depends on what you need done.
Powder Coating Costs
When it comes to powder coating cars, trucks or Jeeps, the average cost is about $2,000. But, the price can vary between $1,000 to $3,5000, according to stats through 2019. When compared on average to having your car painted, Powder Coating is slightly more expensive, but is a lot more durable and long-lasting. The average cost to paint a car according to the same 2019 stats is about $1,900 with a range of $300 to $3,500.
When broken down to the cost per square foot, powder coating can be seen as being about $24.50 per sq. ft. However, an industry study has shown that the cost per sq. ft. for powder coating can range from $4 to $45.
