Those look great! What would you charge for a set? With maybe just a mini step torwd the rear of the rocker? About the size of a boot. My jeep already has side steps

Very nice looking. What part of California are you from. I am far NorCal. I want a set.

Are you one of those guys w/ skill that can just goes out to his garage and makes them or like me, a desk jockey, that will draw up and over think everything? If you are the latter can I have your drawings? LOL

If you can draw it. A local fab shop can cnc cut and bend them.costs a little more but saves a butt load of time and welding materials.

True but w/o the ability to do the work yourself it ends up being cheaper, in most cases, to buy what you want. It has been a few years since I last priced out a project and the economy has tanked since then so it might be more economical but most shops, a busy one anyway, do not like to do one off jobs. Price comes way down if you want 10 or more.

It is the press break large enough to make the bends that is my problem. A shop might form my flat patterns cheaply since that is so simple.
