Rear step bumper cleanup

I've pulled my rear bumper to clean up the crossmember rust.. How would the rest of you deal with the bumper? It's dinged up with a little rust.. prep and powdercoat or blast and paint?

Don't paint galvanizing.

Chicky had a galvy bumper. That was pure sex (that whole truck was pure sexiness).

If you can wait a few weeks I'll be glad to take it up w/ the rest of my stuff. I called the guy yesterday and all the paint needs to be removed before he can dip it. Let me know if you're going to have someone blast yours and i'll do mine then too.

The major hang up is the frame. I need to fix my rear crossmember before I can get it dipped. Pulling the tub tonight to see if I need extensions or not.

That would be great - maybe I can track down a place to have our stuff blasted.. I'm pulling my SD basket and rear ladder for the same purpose..
