I kept the BMR jacking rails off my '18 and put them on my '21. No need to worry about messing up factory pinch/jack points that way. Inexpensive for folks like me who do all their own maintenance and like to take wheels on/off the car seasonally for easier access to cleaning that gets missed over time. https://www.cjponyparts.com/bmr-jac...uqIPfHij6BPYxCZ7LsQm1Zg-ccJfe9doaAieSEALw_wcB

I also have jacking rails to save the pinch welds and do my own work.

Obtain full length jacking rails for multiple reasons:
  • No guesswork on jack placement.
  • No more bent pinch welds.
  • Easily raise entire side of car at one time for jack stand placement front and rear.
  • Add extra rigidity to chassis. I noticed a difference in chassis flex working the car hard on variable surfaces especially.
  • Acts as a first point of contact if going over a large obstacle like speed bumps. Much better to repaint the jacking rails periodically rather than fixing damage to the chassis from direct impacts.
  • Looks cool when the car is on the lift and looking up from underneath. :LOL:
Kidding aside, more pros than cons (extra weight, money).

Agreed on all of the above. I have full length jacking rails on mine. My driveway has a screwy entry and if I don't scrape on the way in I'll scrape on the way out. The last time it was on the lift I checked them out and though they're a little scraped up they're not as bad as I thought they would be, and the pinch welds were still pristine.
