Cost was $215 plus shipping.
These are extremely beefy rails. 2" od and 0.134" wall thickness.
They fit right under my factory rubicon rails on my JK.

They look good, but am I missing something... ? One bolt on each ends holds them on?
Thats right. However, I'm really not that concerned. There is very little space between the top of the ACE rail and the bottom of the factory rubicon rail. If they do flex upward they will make contact with the rubi rail and all the force will be transmitted along the length of the rubi rail.

I think they're perfect for those of us that have factory rails and want to leave them on. ... which I do because I don't really like the look of the pinch seam when its exposed.

So, I suspect the two different rails will work beautifully together.

If you're not pressing them too hard against the rocks, I suppose that will work... but pressed against the rock, I can only imagine the stock rail will serve as a fulcrum and sheer the bolts... I'd keep an eye on it after wheeling and see that nothing is loose...

They look good on your jeep and hope they work out for you!

Good point. If I find it is doing that I can always weld on a 3rd leg or even a 4th, in the middle and and bolt it to the frame.

The basic design is there and it wouldn't take a lot of custom tweaking to make it bomb proof.
