recommend any custom fabricators in western wa?

Need a solution to get my spare + jack out of the vehicle. Been pricing out and comparing many many roof baskets. Been so hesitant to pull the trigger and shell out the $700+bucks most of them would cost.

Was thinking I could pay someone with skills to fab me a custom one.

For now my needs are simple:
1.) Want to mount my spare
2.) Would like to be able to mount/lock my Hi-Lift too when i go out and about

Anyone know who could do this for me?
And a ballpark amount I could expect to pay for this work?

Cool thanks for the tip on stainless brain. nice welds, it's like the seam on a pair of jeans! I'll contact them and see i can get something worked out. Eager to free up the cargo area since I'm almost done building a computer for the jeep... a "jeeputer". Need to start doing some installation of the electronics and wiring.

I'm hoping to be one of the first to have Windows 8 in my jeep. I written some software and apps for Windows 8 to interface with some electronic control modules. Can interface with Relays and all that jazz. So far my proof of concept is working good. I have an inclinometer that I can read from, and it maps the grade/pitch incline percentage of the jeep and displays it on the screen. Also have video cameras working for "suspension cams", along with time-lapse video recording synced with GPS to help "drive and map" a trail automatically. That could help get back on track if you get lost in the woods. Will be neat to use a touchscreen in the dash to turn on lights, control my music, etc.

Always looking for crazy ideas to add into my software. The sky's the limit. So throw them at me if anyone can think of something useful.

Sounds cool, if you need another test Jeep, mine could be available.

other than the windows 8 part that's what I would love to do to.... I'd probably hack one of the netbooks with Mac OSX or iPad (that'd be harder) though

Nothin' but Apple in my Heep

haha great idea! definitely unique

I would be willing to let my rack go $500.00. with all the lites. My rack has a spot for a shovel, axe, and high lift and can still hold a two 33" tires. I will try and get a pic posted.

THERE IS ALWAYS A WAY, IF YOU ARE WILLING TO JUST FIND IT

If you are willing to buy the material and drive down to Puyallup, I would be willing to give you a hand. Haven't built a rack before, but have built bumpers. I also want to build a rack for my WJ, so why not...

Thanks all for the recommendations and offers. I'm going to measure some height clearance when I get back to WA from FL this weekend. Some parking garages might be close to scraping after I upgrade to 33's this winter. Sometimes I have to park in them for off site work meetings etc. The lowest one I've been in was 6' 8''

If the rack is low profile enough I can get in most of them I'm sure.
