    Since you have a '91, those plates were kind of thin. I've got a few of them if you prefer thin over thicker. If not, a thick one can be fabbed easily. :cool1:

    I've got a 4' x 6' chunk of 1/4" plate sitting in Central oregon. Which reminds me I need to go pick it up and get it out of my friends yard before it walks off...

    i know a thick one could be fabbed easy i just cant find the steel anywhere in my area.

    is there any place online where i can order steel like that?

    ill might take one of your stock ones if i get in a pinch but i already have made a cardboard template for one.

    I would sell you a chunk but it's about 4 hours from home right now... makes it a little hard to do much with it for now. Do you have any recycling places around you? Should not be too hard to find a piece of steel at one of those places.

    Heck even Home Depot and the local Ranch/Farm stores around here sell small pieces of steel flat bar that would work for what you want. Though I guess it might be hard to find it 1/4" thick at those places.

    I've got what you need as far as 1/4" plate. I'm in Oklahoma City.
