It's really not that hard to make a set and I had less than 40 bucks in mine. Get some cardboard and draw out a shape you like, test fitting it in place as you go. Transfer it to the plastic and cut it out. Rivit or bolt in place. You can cut the plastic with tin snips if that's all you have, sand or file the edges smooth and heat with a small propane torch on the edges to remove burrs and sanding marks. This also leaves a nice smooth rounded edge. Tied my 30 buck nerf bars into mine this weekend.
.120 wall 1-1/2" hrew tube costs around 2 dollars a foot and I used a little less than 8 foot. The standoffs are some 3/4" round rod a couple inches long each that I drilled and tapped. Throw in a couple bolts each side and a spray can of bedliner and that's about 30 bucks. Working in the garage is a hobby so I don't include labor when I'm working on things for myself.
