4WD accessory places can probably get them in as well.
The rubber bumpers came from a clarke rubber store (australia).
They had a great assortment of premolded rubber things.
These needed replacing after a 6000km trip and need to be tougher.

I got the 6mm aluminium plate cut square from a local metal fabricator shop.
I then did the markout and gave it to him for cutting/slotting and bending to my marks.
He made the stainless brackets with the slots as well.
The countersink bolts came from a bolt shop or hardware store.
These holes i then marked, drilled drilled and countersunk.
I then paid $30 to have it powdercoated.

The racks are wolfman.
watch this pace
