Re: Rock Rail Selection

Legs necessary, pinch seam is too fragile. 2 legs is good enough for most, add your own 3rd leg or buy 3 legs for serious abuse. The rear leg should mount to the leaf spring pocket like AJ's does. The pinch seam is not very strong so you want as much pinch seam support/engagement as possible, preferable tube and not angle iron, and there should be several cross ties or gussets between the pinch seam rail, and the rock rail. Kickers or not would probably depend on the size of the rocks, the size of the trees, or personal preference.

Rock rails are not hard to build, mine were done in one day and coast about $75 for materials.
