Default Galvanized?

I'm thinking about getting a Jeep Wrangler front bumper with integrated winch plate and hoop galvanized. What should that cost, ballpark? Any suggestions on firms that do this in the greater-Lansing area?

No rust, now or in the future. The goal would be to then prep for paint or bedliner afterwards.

Try Elite Electro Coaters in Lansing. They are on the north side out by Royal Scott bowling alley. I had them powdercoat a bunch of suspension parts and a couple dirt bike frames. They did a great job had pretty reasonable prices. Not sure if they offer the 2 stage zinc phosphate.
