Sorry for the convoluted mess it is but I think it better fits in the homebuild section.

What ^ he ^ said. Good old 7.5l 460 Ford. Bulletproof, virtually maintenance free and pre-OBDII. Gets 10 mpg, always, uphill, downhill, pulling 10k lbs, empty, AC on, AC off, backwards, forwards, rock crawling, 55 mph, 95 mph.............10 mpg. Get used to it.

Hi Scotty,
Can you tell me what brackets you used to install the CVT Awning? I have an ARB with ghetto fab brackets that are connected to the roof bars, this set up is temporary until the SMB top is installed in Mar/Apr. I have been struggling to find a gutter mount system that will work. I think the Fiamma brackets might work as well but can't find a specific part number for the E series. FWIW the mounting plate on the ARB is an extruded aluminum flat plate with 2 channels routed out about 1"3/4 2" apart, bolts slide into the slots and allow for fore/aft adjustment.

Hey there, I'm guessing you're JB1RD from Expo? Welcome to the quiet side.

I used the Van Specialties brackets which were a direct copy of the older Z's Fiamma brackets, which lucky for you are now made and sold by 1der here on this forum. You can use them for any awning I'm aware of, and he has them a little cheaper than they used to be, but the good ones aren't cheap. You'll have to get on the list for the next batch.
