See the 4th post on that Stone Stomper thread. ...Here is the metal source (local to me, great prices): https://alcobrametals.com/product/AQ1.00ER This is one of the front flap bars, it is drilled differently from the rear mudflaps: http://olivertraveltrailers.com/topic/how-to-stone-stomper-gravel-guard/ There is no need to use the radius corners, but I do think that they look classy compared to square ones, and they save your knuckles from scrapes when you are washing the trailer. The 1x2" rectangular shape is way more rigid than a 1x1" square tube, be sure to drill some "failure holes" as shown in that thread, so the bar will fold rearward gracefully if hit hard, instead of transmitting all the impact energy to the subframe. You do not want the subframe to get damaged if you run over a truck tire retread or a scrap of lumber at freeway speeds. John Davies Spokane WA John, thanks for sharing this years ago. A gift that keeps on giving since the Elites still don't come with a mud flap option. 🙂 I'm going to tackle this mod soon. I happen to have enough 1" x 1" x 3/64" scrap steel square tubing for this job but I'm willing to get 1" x 2" aluminum if there's big benefits. To John and others that have done this mod, is 1" square steel tubing feasible? Thanks in advance! 2020 Elite II, Hull 688 --- 2021 Silverado 2500HD, 6.6L Duramax Diesel Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
