It might cost a few bucks, but call "Jet Hot". They do ceramic coatings for headers and such in different colors (black & silver I think). They have a 5 year gaurantee on rust for headers so I'd imagine this would work for a Hi-Lift. Only problem is, I don't know how it would hold up to frequent use. Call them and ask. I can't find the number but maybe someone else can help.
here's their website, as far as I can tell, it's the official one... http://www.goracing.com/jethot/index.html
Hope they have what you want, I believe they have a phone number and other contact information. Good Luck!!!

I've been carrying the same hi-lift on the front bumper of my CJ7 since 1985, it's kinda rusty, but I spray WD40 on the important (moving) parts frequently. Still works just fine, and it's a tool so is it really important what it looks like?
