    Default Replacement Frame Rails

    Anyone got good recommendations for frame rails for a 240Z? I'd like some heavy duty ones that just fit over the existing rails to add strength and rigidity to the car. I know of only one place to get them off hand and that's Bad Dog Parts.

    Anyone have experience with their rails?

    Anyone have a better suggestion (i.e. superior product, cheaper price, etc)?

    You can make your own very easy with some 16ga sheet metal and a small brake. I replaced one side of mine and it took about 4 hours to make them and weld them on.

    There is scarcely anything in the world that some man cannot make a little worse, and sell a little more cheaply.
    The person who buys on price alone is this man's lawful prey.

    Thank you for the replies guys!!

    gnosez, those links were great!! Very helpful and informative.

    Blue, I already knew about Bad Dog and was preparing to order I just wanted to make sure that was the right part and from the links from gnosez it appears as though it is.
