    You can get it in steel or aluminum from most welding or machine shops.I've seen adds for Jeep armor and Land Cruisers,but,not much else so he prob made his own.

    You can get that on the Echobit website.... but it's by far cheaper to make it yourself (buy the stuff at a place that sells the plate like a steel shop, not Lowe's it way too expensive there). If you have a rotozip or a jigsaw, it's very easy to do (I made some kick plates for some doors a couple weeks ago for church and learned). Just go slow, take your time, and don't force the cuts, or the blade will bend/bind and make it look crappy. Also draw out the pattern first. If you try to eyeball it, it'll be crooked.... cuz my cuts were.... /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    i can get the diamond tread plate at the local iron place here in town i have a metal break, and a plasma cutter, so thats not the prob, the prob is getting it to form to the curves of my blazer, diamond tread plate does not bend esay, and on his rig looked like a pretty good fit, someone had to have a pretty good metal break to do that, or something to give it that good curve with out messing it up, thats what im asking
