Thanks for the info and I will check with Viper. Do you remember if the new material for the channel part is hard plastic or aluminum?

Through some other reading, I believe the original rail is from TACO:

They do not sell a black anodized version. They have a hard rubber version that is black but is slightly taller at 1.25"

Thanks again.

The outside is a harder plastic while the interior is more of a firm rubber. No metal involved other than the screws. It sounds like I may have the version you mention as height was a factor that precluded putting on the factory seam cover back on. I suspect a metal version (particuarly black) would have looked slighly better, but in general the plastic is holidng up just fine.

One tip, I did have a bit of a leak that would drip down next to the driver foot well. Turned out to be from the rubrail which was not put on with any silicon. I put a small bead of clear silicon under the rail and the problem was solved. Also, heating up the interior portion makes for an easier installation.

I may look into powder coating or anodizing the original rail.
