diamond plate body trim?

So I took the nerf bars off my truck over the weekend and i like the look a lot better, it makes the truck look like it sits higher. But with no nerf bars, I want to put a trim there. I was a stainless steel diamond plate trim but I cant find anything. The only diamond plate I found was like a plastic or rubber stick on thing. I also wanted it to go over the bottom of the body, like under the door where it bends and goes under the truck. Does anybody sell something like this? Would it be a pain to try and make this due to the curves and everything? Thanks for any help.

i dont know about that part of the truck, but i have some diamond plate that is bent and goes over the top of my tailgate. It is aluminum though.

If it can be bent to fit tailgate, then im sure it can be done to fit that part of the body.

I did that on my ’88 STX and it looked good.
I was thinking of the same thing but I have a flareside and that would make it even harder to find.
