I have the 3/8th thick version. If you can make thicker ones that is better as you want them as thick as possible and preferably about 2" longer as I have to take everything off to get to the spare tire.

These are really nice. They keep the look of the original brackets.

The Bratton ones look really nice compared to the cheaper long ones, thanks

Get the 3/8 ones. I have toured 26,000 mi and my trunk is solid.

I have used both styles and I prefer the ones from Bratton's. They do provide more support.

I had brackets that looked like that 6mm plate, I bent it real good. I replaced it with 10mm, Sturdy as now.
