im 99.999999% sure they are not just flat plate. while they are probably built out of plate they are not one piece. they are probably built like most are building lowers now just like the baja racers

Those links are a box link, made out of flat steel plate, the pieces were more then likely cut out on a CNC plasma or water jet machine.

So nothing too special? I have a buddy with a CNC machine. If thats all it is I could make those. How would they do in the rocks though?
