5-Bar Source

I should have thought of this before my shipment left the UK but I am apparently a moron. Does anyone know a source for 5-bar treadplate in the northeast, I am looking for 1mm-5mm for various parts fabrication and the suppliers I hav talked to so far are after minimum orders in the 15000 pound (wt.) range and really I do not need to equip an entire fleet .

I regularly drive to upstate NY, mid-state NH, and Vermont so picking it up is reasonable. I guess I could also put an order in the next container and that would cost about $400 per cubic metre to do so if anyone else needed any we could split, but it would likely not arrive until spring considering bow long it took to get this current shipment sorted.

5-Bar in CA.

I had my 5-bar custom cut to the specifics of my jump seat bases to replace that terrible masonite material. It was then shipped to me. The total charge was around $120 (including shipping) for four pieces. Depending on what you need, this may be a viable option. I'll get you the name of the outfit that did it if you like. The seats turned out great and so strong! A perfect match to the truck's wings and rear quarters. Let me know.

I dont know anything about these guys, just found them on the web. Looks promising. Anyway, download the catalog and they have sheets of 5 bar (I dont know the price) as well as a bunch of other LR stuff. I could use a 1/2 a sheet if anyone wants to split it.

Reviving this old thread. I am looking for a source in the US for aluminum 5-bar tread. I am thinking of replacing the shitty plastic tread on the stock side steps so they look like the LE version. Anybody know of a good source for small amounts? If anyone else is interested in the side step tread project or has another in mind, maybe we could get a larger quantity and split it. I am located in Dallas.
Cheers

If people know what size they want I can source it out of the UK, shipping lag is likely quite long (to get best price) but I know I plan on making some rear floors (for going edge to edge over storage drawers/lockers etc) as well as floor plates etc at some point in the spring and if I put together a large order I can always drive it down to one of the events in the North East then.
