    It's a trapezoid shape roughly 2.8" wide by 1.6" tall.

    The geometry is the same as the tent extrusion t nuts. It’s deeper though so it can accommodate a larger bolt when required.

    I am hoping to catch a glimpse of the official GFC test vehicle while we are in Baja next week. I am imagining that it will be covered with a shroud to keep the masses from catching a glimpse of next year’s designs!

    @wileydavis we will be driving the TopoTerra 2017 Taco w/RTT and Smitty Built trailer. Of course, we won’t have to rent a setup once the GGC comes. See you on Hwy 1 or 5.

    reason emails fail is because people send a million of them a day and are not effective in their communication. So people have 20 emails from the same person in a day, 90% of them mean nothing or having nothing to do with work. They also fail to follow up with a phone call to make sure that it is being taken care of. Basically they send it and completely forget about it as they think they did their part. Drives me nuts when, I work with people whom literally sit round the corner from me and send a million emails instead of coming into my office and begin like hey Steve i’ve Got this this and this, we could have a bit of a bs, cover the topic and be done with it in 5-10 mins, form a work relationship and foster a give a shit attitude at work because we know have friends at work and want to see them do well.

    Sorry bit of a Sore topic with me, as I work with a bunch of younger kids(even though they are in their 20’s they are not adults) whom won’t answer the phone, but will text me instead of answering. I’m just tired of the distant workforce, not giving a shit attitudes and general lack of work ethic.

    My industry is doomed in 5-10 yrs.

    Does anyone remember the side mounted bike racks that KB Voodoo used to make? That’d be a pretty cool idea...

    I have no room to fit my bike on my tire carrier or inside the truck, and lifting a 40lb bike 7’ up is a bit of a challenge lol.

    There would have to be a good amount of designing though as the handlebards would hit the panel on the side

    Front handlebar looks like it's almost 12" over the cab (maybe just the camera angle). In any event, extend that front fork mount up to the point where the handlebar clears the GFC and you've solved one problem.

    I've seen the outboard bike mounts used with caps so I think you should be fine clearance wise. I've seen a set or two pop up for sale recently too.

    Also quick view of the new cantilever rack and camper rack just popped up on their IG story. Looks pretty cool.

    It's DLX son!
    Interested to hear what the recommended weight cap is on this @wileydavis

    Also - any consideration of integrating a wind faring into the design of of the cantilever rack? I notice that at least on my setup I am only catching bugs on the upper half of the tent frame. Seems like if I could deflect the air coming off the windshield just a little bit more it would cut the drag significantly.

    Any insight on how the solar is wired through the GFC?

    Those coffee people ran solar through the gasket of the front panel FWIW.
