ok i am going to get a roll pan but i need some ideas, i have a 96 chevy s10. to me they all look really alike and the prices can vary quite a bit but i notice that the material is different. what should i look for in terms of material and product names?

i like the gm rollpan i'd prefer fiberglass cuz my buddies is rusting out and hes only had it a year so just make sure before u put it on u paint the unfinished side with some rustolemum or something......

when u go from a bumper to the gm rollpan u need to get the lights harnass lil black plastic things that direct the light and licence plate clip things for the screws......

no fiberglass man thats ghetto in my mind.like xtremer said if your going to do something do it right. get a nice steel weld one, it wont rust if you take the proper steps to prevent it.

where do you get it welded on and how much does it cost, how much does it cost to paint it?
where do you put the rear license plate if you get a smooth roll pan?

price

Hey Hey...

The local custom shop here is charging me about $200 to have the roll pan painted,welded,and molded in(basically so it looks like one piece,for the new guy).

:scary: LowTech:scary:

F***** Fiberglass, Steel is the way to go, trust me if somone hits you from behind your truck is gone,
i got hit a couple of months ago, the guy was going about 30mph and i am glad i had a Steel pan, i had Sir Michs pan. Steel looks cleaner Don't waste your money on Fiberglass. Sir michs makes the best rollpans they are worth the money. they run about $130. Your going to kick your self in the end if you go with that fiberglass crap!!!!!!!!

I like the idea of a weld in but I can't find a place to do the work, anyone know of a good body shop in Maryland?
thanks

Who has the best prices on the Sir Michaels roll pans?

Are all the hidden hitches the same? I only need to tow a 1500 pound boat and I saw a hidden hitch for a like $80. will the hitch line up with the hole in the roll pan?
