do you HAVE to have stainless steel? its gonna be hard to find someone who can do it and when you do its gonna be kinda expensive. good luck though!

My friend Zach from Untitled Document made a set of SS bumpers and sliders for a Jeep. Super $$$$, but email him if you want something custom, he can do it.

Double post, delete me please.....

stainless steel will be outrageous expensive and it won't be as shiny as chrome, but it will hold up better to the elements

both have good and bad points, but if you want it to match the rest of the truck and shine, then go with chrome!

thanks so much for the ideas please keep them flowing and yes the idea is for it to shine but it also needs to serve its purpose as the work truck when i need it too but at the sametime be durable enough to stand the beating so im trackin stainless and chrome is gonna be expensive but well in the long run i beleive that stainless will hold up much better and look just as good haha worse comes to worse im gonna have to go with diamond plate but i dont wanna do that just yet

Stainless scratches really really easily. Your going to have nicks and everything all over it and its going to look like **** IMO. Trust me, I have to work with that got forsaken metal everyday at work. Its a pain to cut it and to work with it period. It is a stronger metal overall, but it isnt worth it IMO. Just get a bumper made then chrome it.
