|URascal||you can get diamondplate at Maryland Metals in Hagerstown, Md. comes 4 x 8 sheet, 1/8 inch thick. You can cut it and bend it any way you want. I just diamond plated my Jeep, rear corners, tailgate, under the doors, on top of the front fenders for about $600 would have saved a bundle had I bought a sheet and cut it myself.|

I saw it at Lowes today not super expensive, and I saw it at Tractor Supply as well. I think you could get Lowes to cut it in the exact measurements you want therefore you wont have waste.
Thats my plan, then I'm painting them and installing myself

|OsageJeep||In my experience, the chrome treadplate is aluminum and black treadplate is steel..you can paint the steel treadplate any color you want. it is a lot cheaper to buy it steel in no color at all really and then paint it black. a 4x8 sheet of aluminum is about 100 dollars where I get my supplies. just look up any metal stores..Wheeler Metal (Arkansas) is where I get my stuff|

Black diamon plate is just regular diamond plate painted or powder coated black.

Salvage yards sell metal. You can probably find some diamond plate there.
places like Triple-S Steel sells all you'd need for fab work. I'm sure there's a similar place in your area.

|JDsDream||There is a company called Eastern Metals that sells it pretty cheap. The only problem is that they sell to manufacturers only. Try contacting a local sign shop and see if they can order a sheet for you. It runs about 50.00 a sheet. Or you can do what I did, cut regular diamond plate, scruff it up a little and hit it with krylon. I've had mine for over 3 years and it hasn't chipped or scratched yet.|

Well, in that case, where can I get REGULAR diamond plate?
That and I can just cut it with a circular saw right?

|Peepers||I'm not familiar with black diamond plating, but I believe you can get it anodized or powder-coated after fabrication. there is always bedliner.|
