Bull bar

Can somebody tell me what this bull bar is made of? Is it stainless or crome?

Grab a magnet. Stainless is not magnetic.

I'm considering buying it, the seller thinks it stainless, I have not seen it, "Craigslist" it is a LR part.

Looks like a genuine stainless steel a bar as commonly seen on 1994 black trucks. It may corrode a little, but it should be fine.
