    Does anyone know where I can get a hold of some Aluminum daimond plate? I want to put a piece on the tail gate since I ripped the old oem cover off. I got the idea from Blazin obssesion. Has anyone heard from him lately? He has got a lot of cool stuff on his website /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif

    If you look in our local Sprint Yellow pages, under the heading "steel" there is several suppliers of steel and aluminum of all types.

    I got the diamond plate for my grill at the local Lowes store. Home Depot has some, too.

    While we are on the subject, anyone know where to get diamond plate rocker panel covers?

    There used to be a company that made them, but they went belly up back in the 80's and to the best of my knowledge, they were the only company that made them for out rigs. So no one makes them(that I've found)so its a matter of finding someone that has a roll-former to be able to roll-bend the diamond plate without ruining the tread
