those are nice! how much did the steel cost? Im wondering if there is a cost effective angle to building your own or if its out of sheer badassness

well the 1 3/4 x20' tube was like $40..the stainless square stock was already built when i bought the jeep..but i would guess under $100 total in supplies including hardware.
