Looking for a custom metal fab shop

Looking for a shop to manufacture some custom boxes for my truck. I have them drawn out in SolidWorks, so they would need to be able to handle that. They will be made from sheet metal, water jet cut, folded and welded.

Prefer someone in the Colorado Front Range area but anywhere is fine, if the price is reasonable.

Share the design if you have it. Alway good to see what others are doing to customize their rigs.

I will share it but not until I get a prototype built to make sure that it fits correctly. It's somewhat similar to the boxes that Troy Smith makes, but longer, a bit taller, and these are able to be installed on the early '94 trucks that have the rollcage with the crossbar that runs the length of the tub. I worked with my brother-in-law to come up with the design.
