I just wanted to put a separate shout out for BMR’s ‘Red’ Jacking Rails.

It was obvious I was going to need Jacking Rails (weak undercarriage structure). In shopping around I came across the BMR version of a low profile jacking rail. Seemed nice, but expensive until I shopped around. Summit had the deal, and I opted for them in Red.

The rails are coated with thick red powder coat, almost too nice to be strapping to the undercarriage of the car?

Very well made. 30 minute install.

When you look under car you see a 1-2 mm red line of the rail, like a pinstripe. BTW, a rubber pad for your floor jack will help insure their luster... :cool:

I've been debating between these BMRs and Steeda and you just decided it for me, the BMR's fitment looks great. Not too much hanging down and the pics of Steedas I've seen makes them look like a flush mount. Thanks for posting. Looks like Summit may have the best deal with free shipping.

Are jacking rails needed to ensure no damage as stated on there site? Does Ford service require special pads on there lifts?

I use the same Asymmetric 2 Post Automotive lift in my shop that most of the dealerships use. Are the standard lift pads not sufficient to not cause any damage to the gt350?

I just purchased the car so I have not needed to do any service necessitating the lift.

Thanks,
Mitch

Here is a great install video & review on the subject, these rails reinforce the factory pinch weld and provide a stout rail to place jack stands or post lift on.

They are CAD-designed and made from 2"x 1" steel tubing creating a perfect fit every time. Steeda has created these rails as a lightweight bolt-in design meaning that you will be able to remove them at any time. Weighing in at only 14 pounds, they are some of the lightest on the market.

These will both give you piece of mind while jacking car (pinch weld lift would be a no go without it, I don’t trust it not to fold) and adds regidity to unibody. Video posted above by the Steeda version is similar, but I like my Red BMR Rails. The Pounder Coat is Mega thick.

I was just looking at these today. I think I’ll pick a set up soon.
Which ones are you looking at? I have the Steeda rails on my '15 GT and on the GT350 and they work great. No visual or clearance impact.

I had looked at the BMR’s in red above, but I’m not completely sold. The steedas may be lighter? Any pics?
I believe the BMRs a quite a bit longer than the steedas and run farther back.. better if you only want to lift the back side...

madlag, I too have the Steeda units, and if I were to order again, the BMR's are a bit longer (which is a good thing) and the finish is nicer than the Steeda's as well.

madlag, thanks for sharing the z1 pinch weld mag pads...wondering will these still fit once you have the jacking rails installed? Only ask as I was thinking the jacking rails sit pretty close to the pinch weld. If they fit these would be great if you just wanted to jack up one wheel...with the Steeda's you have to jack up the entire side of the car as they're pretty short (in their defense though, that's what they are made for).

The OP (JT) may check in on this as he has (and really likes) the BMR units...that is if we can get him off that remote island where he is currently basking in the sun with rum based cocktails :)

I bought a pinch-weld pad to use on my 2007 Shelby GT because I don't have jacking rails on it. I don't think you would be able to use the pinch pad with the jacking rails. Just a guess because I haven't had a reason to try it.

No picture on the car but there's a photo of the rails on the first page of this thread, posted by Steeda I think. I believe they are less weighty than the BMRs.
