Rock Rail Q's?

I was wondering if someone with a set of rock rails that were also used as steps could give me a quick measurement of the length of the tube to the frame rail. Everything seems to be coming together smoothly as I am building my own but I have nothing to compare to for this measurement. All I need is the measurement from the frame rail to the outer tube... thanks in advance.

Re: Rock Rail Q's?

The measurement from the sub chassis to the edge of the rail is 12in and 4 in from the pinch seam to the edge of the rail. personally I would prolly add an inch to an inch and a half to that if mine were diffrent. they are lined up exactly with the outer most edge of the door, i would have liked to see it keep me a litte further off objects....... so there is the info for ya
