Welder near chicago

I'm doing the 2x6 steel rock slider mod, and I'm looking for a welder in the Chicago suburbs. I have the old rockers cut out, and have the tubes cut at angles on the ends already. I just don't have the welding tools/experience to tackle the next step. I've called a few places, but seems it's a project that they aren't interested in. Anyone know of a company or person who may be interested?

Thanks

Re: Welder near chicago

Why on earth would you start this and have everything cut up if you didn't have a way to do the work?

I'm pretty sure the guy got this done, TwoDoorRob reached out to him but if I recall he'd already had it scheduled. This was long ago when warm weather was present
