I charged $175 out of 3/16". Found several online for $250. I sold the half dozen or so I cut, haven't cut any more since. I would need to recheck, and see if that pricing still holds. They were one of the first items I cut and sold.

ETA: $215 with steel price update.

I found the 3/16" to be too heavy. Its a break down so obviously meant to be portable. Being jeep shaped its likely geared at off roaders. Granted most JK owners are mall crawlers and will likely use this grill the one time a year they accidentally go off road ;) On the other hand I wheel every weekend so the lighter the better. I did my own personal one in 1/8" and used a few of the longer cutouts tacked under the bottom to prevent warping. I think even a smaller size would be optimal for someone who really off roads regularly so I will try that next.

Have you tried yours out? My steel yard has a bunch of 1/8" for cheap right now, I was thinking about buying a bunch and trying to knock some out.

Anyone else using 1/8" or is 3/16" the norm?

My own personal one ends up getting sold every time I make it ..LOL .. so I have not had the chance to burn anything in it yet but have received no complaints on the ones I have sold. Im actually going to cut another one this weekend and scale it down in size a little.
