    yeah, I knew I could get a welder. But, actually, it would be cheaper to buy a new or used pair as I see them from 150-250$ new (for jeeps - same applicatoin). Tubing, bending, cutting and welding will cost more for a 1 off.

    find a buddy who has that stuff and buy him a beer and some dinner, call some shops around you and i garantee someone will do it.

    Man-A-Fre used to about 5 or 6 years ago, maybe longer. If there was enuff interest they could MAYBE be talked into a run of them, but I dunno.

    Let us know if you find them...

    Those look pretty cool! I might be interested in a set at some point.
