Definitely recommend... but would use a newer product called flexi-dip - its a product made by Rust-o-Leum and sold in the spray can section at Builders.
I did my bumpers and wheel arches and grill with it and it seems a bit more forgiving and easier to apply.

So, after removing them, I started by stripping off the old paint on the brackets, and refinishing them with a few coats of Hammerite. They look almost brand-new now.
Next step was performing some old-school panel beating and removing the dings from the aluminium and quite a few coats of plastidip.
Finally, refitted - they look almost too new for the truck.
I'm unsure as to how well the plasti-dip will wear on the steps, as they normally get trodden on quite a bit by the kids. I am, however, very happy with the end results. Hopefully the dip will last until such time as I upgrade to a set of rocksliders. :)

I also want to make mine black.... (will replace them later with sliders).
