Westin Grill Gaurd Mounts

Could someone make some mounts for a Westin Safari Bar for under $27.99? Im probably going to get the bar next week, but im not absolutely sure. Im just looking to see if some one could do it.

Thanks.

I couldnt find any Westin safari bars on ebay for my truck. I found one at pep boys for $129 and the mounting kit was $38.

Im thinking the mounting kit cant be anything more then some 1/8" plate some holes and a bend or 2.

man, its only 30-40 bucks... you will spend more time and making this and possibly more money than if you would have just bought them in the first place.

Thats it? I could probably make those with a cut off tool, a vice and a hammer. Thanks for the pics. I think I may just buy the kit copy the design and return the kit.
