I am currently building a rail and was wondring what you all are running for 5 point harnesses?

I'm running 3" crow 5 point up front and 2" Crow 4 point in the rear. I'm upgrading the rear's to 5 point over the summer by adding an anti submersion strap.

Don't forget, the belt angle and set up is almost more important than the belts themselves. For example, you don't want the should straps mounted more than a couple inches below the tops of your shoulders. Many sand cars, especially in the old days, had the shoulder belts mounted much lower, which can cause your torso to be compressed during a crash.

Do a google search for propert 5 point seat belt installation for more info...

Well, if you take the belts and wrap them around your body Sloppy, then run in circles on the street outside your house, then you can ACTUALLY say "I run Crows"... :mrgreen:
