Good looking rails!
How many mounts are you planning on fab/installing?

The near end looks like it may be stepped as in a box tube with a sheetmetal "L" metal on top. Is this accurate? If so this is a great stiffener and weight saver.

Look forward to seeing the additional pics! The skate board grip is a good idea. If you see mud allot you may wish to consider a piece of expanded metal on top where you typically place your foot. The grit will foul with mud and become slippery if you hit much wet clay or mud.

i thought about the whole mud thing and i dont really do mud. more rocks than anything. and i h8cleaningmud off my rig it gets everywhere.

Good tip on the grip tape. I was going to put some on my sliders, but mud is a way of life out here, unless you don't get out much.:beer:
 
Mud pretty much sucks but no way to stay out of it around here.
The largest rock around here is about the size of a golfball.
