the 1/8" tread plate was around 115 for a 4x8 and the smooth was around 100 a sheet.

Powder coat is nice but after Line-X I'd have a hard time going back to powder, especially with the newer color matched Kevlar top coat from Line-X. I'd color match the sides to the truck and do the deck in black. Just my two cents...
I would agree i love the line-x with kevlar overcoat on my road armor bumper, holds up sooooo good. If you got the money id say go for it, but it would cost an arm and a leg to get that whole flatbed line-x'd with the kevlar coat.
