SS 5-bar plate?

Does it exist? Unobtainium? I know of plenty of sources for ALU 5-bar, even here in CA, but I really want these oem SS side steps:

and it kills me that it has diamond plate instead. If I buy them, I'd like to be able to make them look "correct." Any ideas or suggestions? Much appreciated.

I saw that for sale thread and I actually have the stainless steps on my truck too. I actually didn't know they were a Land Rover part until I saw the post. Mine have diamond plate too. If you bought them wouldn't it be more original to keep the diamond plate and not switch to the 5 bar plate? Here is a photo of mine for reference:

You're right. It would be more original. And it does look really nice on your truck. But it doesn't look right to me from a consistency standpoint, as I have a full 6 piece 5-Bar kit.
