SUBZEROCOOL Try your local scrap and steel yard, they should have it and at a good price. Then just have it PC or paint it your self

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.

94YJGUY 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

captgentry Oh yea...

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

captgentry 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.

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.

Where to get black diamond plate?

Looking to fabricate my own rocker guards, but where in the world can I find black diamond plate?
