    I've got an ARB Simpson III mounted on a Thule Xsporter rack. I have a few pics on here somewhere. You can mount it low on the bed rail or you can mount it higher with a rack like mine which is adjustable. I have mine up high so I can use my awning. You won't find many on this site but you will on expedition portal.

    Check out my rack system. My goal was a removable, low riding rack that I could use for many different accessories.

    If you notice on the RTT pictures, most of the racks used are higher off the ground. I see two reasons for this: more storage space in bed, more functionality of attached vestibule on tent. If you use a bed rail mounted system, the vestibule is rendered mostly for overnight gear storage because the head room is reduced.
