Default Suggestions on box rails

I'm looking to install a set of box rails on the ram. Any brands to avoid? My first choice was the boss locker rail but, I've heard about (and seen) several of the putco rails that discolor and start to flake at the point where the tube meets the forged tie down part. I'm told that putco has fixed this issue but...?
If that problem has been fixed then that's probably the one's that I would go with. I ordered a set of ICI rails from a local business but after way too much hassle with getting the wrong ones (2 different times) and having to wait going on two month's now I told them I was done messing around. But thats not to say that I wouldn't get the ICI rails either on line or from another dealer. So back to the original ? Which brand to go with? Thanks guys!
