    Default ride plate??

    looking at rear ends i have noticed that some ride plates have what looks like 1"angle aluminum riveted to the outside of the extruding surface. other do not. whats the purpose of this? i can only imagine two reasons but ill just keep quiet since im usually very wrong.

    added strength, without the supports they will or can bend, (puts an arch in the ride plate).

    I've seen them made out of aluminum channel for the rigidity.

    well seems my idea wasnt far off this time. my other thought was so water wouldnt wash up on top.
