E350 Ford Van Roof Rack Brackets

First time post here- great site with tons of info and great ideas. I purchased a Conferr Roof rack for my E350 Ford van with out any brackets. I tried ORU for Defender brackets and they do not have the brackets at this time and did not know when they will be available again. I found a company Tallowpot Products which make roof rack brackets that look very nicely made but they were unable to confirm if they will fit a Ford Van roof. Has anyone used them or know of someone who has used them. They wrote me back and advised that the clamp is 4 1/2 inches from the rain gutter and 6" to the end. I measured my roof and it seems they will work. I am just trying to verify prior to ordered them as I hate to have to return items. Also if anyone may know of someone who makes brackets that would be great. I searched the internet and called alot of suppliers and no one seems to have the Defender brackets in stock. Thanks for any help.

That is more of a sprcific issue and hopefully someone will possible chime in on that particular mount.
If not I would say Aluminess could make anything you need, but adapting to a different product could be difficult. I have a Yakima rack (load warrior) that is sitting because I switched to a full rack made by Aluminess. I wish I would have not wasted the money on the Yakima products and just went with Aluminess. My 2 cents only.
