This is how mine is mounted. Just a Ram mount with a brace I made to keep vibration down.

I have it mounted in a www.proclipusa.com holder. The bracket was custom fabbed but they make two for the Tacoma -- my iPhone is in a ProClip holder on the console.

I really do like the ProClip product!!

That pro clip is pretty damn cool. Does it take around at all, or is it pretty sturdy? I'm looking for a mount for my Note 3 which is pretty massive for a phone.

Yes, the iPad Mini is held very sturdy - but to be fair it doesn't weigh much - the iPad Mini Retina is a nice unit I am happy with. The ProClip for the phone is one I have used in two different places for about three years and LOVE it!! It supports the phone at the bottom with pressure and on the Mini it contacts in three places for good hold.

Thanks. I think i'm going to get it. I like that it's out of the way not on the window or dash, and it looks like if you tighten that center bolt it will lock the holder in the position you want which would be nice for offroad.

ARB Awning Install

Hi All - I figured this would be a good thread to ask a question/issue I am having with installing my 6.5' ARB awning to my roof rack. I searched the site and hadn't seen any dedicated threads about awnings, if anyone has links to better threads then thank you.

So the awning came with (6) 20mm bolts & my lock nuts. According to the instructions the aluminum mounting extrusion on the back of the awning is supposed to hold the heads of the bolts "captive" so you are able to tighten the nuts. My plan is to attach metal "L" brackets to the mounting extrusion, then the "L" brackets to my roof rack. Pictures here:




However when trying to tighten the nuts the head spins in the channel after it begins torquing a bit harder. So the heads seem like they are just a bit too small to function as I believe they should according to the instructions. Is there anything I am missing? Has anyone else who has the ARB awning had this issue or know what the issue might be?

I really appreciate any feedback and thanks in advance!

Oh, and here's a pic of the truck for reference



Cheers,

10-4, makes sense! Just thought I'd double check to see if there wasn't something I was missing. Interesting they'd include bolts that don't actually work as needed.

I appreciate the response all, thank you.

Looks like you could put a washer between the bolt head and the rail too.

I'd probably end up jamming a flathead screwdriver in there if I couldn't fit a wrench in for tightening.

Productive day.

Built a drawer/ table under my sleeping platform. Still need the adjustable paint poles that I'm going to use as legs



I also mounted my switches for my roof rack lights. Still waiting on them so I can wire them up.



And I changed out the daystar switch I had for my led bar for this one

just plywood and 2x2 cut down to size to fit under there. It's a little to short I just made it out of what i had left laying around. I might make a longer one tho,I still have like 2 feet of room to the end of the head of the bed. Still need some expandable poles to act as legs to finish off the build.

Re: paint poles for legs:
Think about the intended use for paint poles, in particular the amount of weight they are designed to deal with. No paint pole in the world could hold more than maybe ten pounds at its outer limit.
If you plan on putting the weight of a person on the drawer, you should consider a weight rating of at least 300 pounds. Perhaps some drop-down dimensional lumber or steel tube. If you really need height adjustability (say, camping on uneven ground), just shim it with wood blocks, rocks, wrenches, logs, floor mats, or whatever else is available, easy, and can be multipurpose.
