That’s $150 I can spend on the silencer / spark arrestor I need . I think the Turbine Core 2 is what I’m getting.

did one similar, but probably overbuilt is by a long shot.  Bolted to the rail with 1" angle iron bracing on the back side (both under the lip and behind the vertical area).. I have no sense of what 'enough'. 

What's the main 'member'?  The commercial item use what appears to be box section tubing, you're looks like flat bar stock or is it angle/braced under the railing somehow?

I'm currently using something similar, but it bolts to the bottom of my cross bed toolbox and ties into the front tie down bed points with turnbuckles so the toolbox doesn't end up as a stressed member..

You are correct I used 1/4 inch plate . I’ve also been guilty of overbuilding things so I know what you mean. Once this was bolted in 3 spots it’s solid !
