225 dollars for some wire mesh and some silver paint? No thank you, I think I make this myself for 5 dollars. This does not really require fabrication knowledge or mechanical knowledge. Even if you doubt your measuring, cutting, and painting abilities that much then just go to home depot, buy the stuff, then get one of the "helpers" outside to do it for you. Give him a nice 20 afterwards and you would have just spent one tenth of the price for the same piece.

Hey guys, please don't kill the messenger! My intent was to post this for informational purposes, not to shock you with the price.

I doubt it. Looks like it is mounted too low for that. I think it is just a visual piece.

it may be a visual piece, but it doesnt even look any good.

i still cant believe that they charge so much for something like that, same as whith that plexiglass crap you put on your rollbars, wtf.
but then again, theres a buyer for everything out there
