The ultimate truck rack and tool box

So I designed this truck box/rack below, and never really found a place to have someone give me an estimate or even a place that was capable of constructing something like it.

Any one throw a rough estimate on this puppy?
anyone suggest someone to build it for me in Southern California?

I Havent brought this up in the area-specific forum but will figured Id see what info I could learn here first.

Click the image to open in full size.

the drivers side compartment that is verticle will be great for hanging chains, or what ever.
the two bottom pics are from a birds eye overhead view..
and yes the box will be notched for a single 4 inch stack

what do you all think?

any good welding shop should be able to fab...IMHO, I would go aluminum- you are likely looking at $1k to $2k depending on material cost.

thanks! I talked to 3 different welding shops in north San Diego county they said they didnt have something to bend the diamond plate. I do know a guy that does NHRA cert roll cages i havent brought it up to him yet but he's just coming out of his busy season with everyone breaking their stuff this last summer... HA

yes I would like to use aluminum its cheaper so I hear, and wont rust.
