    Put some 3g takeoff wheels on my truck along with a MGM sport grille.

    Thanks. I've only used the clamps a handful of times so far, but shovel didn't move or rotate after hours of 75+ freeway speeds and some very bumpy desert wheeling. So I'm happy with them.

    The T-slot nuts and fasteners are 304/18-8 stainless. Ideally they would be 316, but that would make them more expensive and unless they see a lot of salt spray, they shouldn't corrode.

    The stainless T-slot nuts are from Amazon.
    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07DXJ9QGF

    Same with the D-rings (given how cheap these were, I expect them to rust at some point, but I'll just swap them out if it comes to that, since they came in a package of 10).
    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07MB985GW/

    The metric fasteners I picked up from McMaster (but you can find similar ones on Amazon, or probably locally too). The bolts that mount the clamps to the bracket are M8-1.25 x 40mm, with M8 washers and Nylock nuts (all stainless). The bolts that mount the bracket to the bed rail/T-slot nut are 3/8-16 x 1.00" (also stainless). The 3/8 bolts are from Amazon.
    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07TRTRHWR

    The Quick Fist clamps I got at Wheeler's. They come with fasteners, but I swapped all the fasteners for stainless obviously. Also note, I had to drill out the mounting hole on the brackets to fit the 3/8" bolt.

    My only gripe about him is that the hardware is standard, really not a big deal but it means that you have to carry more than metric wrenches for your truck, that said I've got enough standard stuff on my truck at this point that I already have those in my toolbox but it's something to consider. Should need a 7/16 3/8 1/2 and 9/16 IIRC. (11mm, 3/8, 13mm, 14mm)

    Are.you putting a layer of reflectix up there too or is that tinfoil bubble wrap part of the noico red?

    Is there a kit you can order from them for the truck or what did you all buy to insulate the cab?

    A few mods here and there and counting....
    Noico red over the sound deaden material. I can report my cab is a lot cooler since doing this mod. Totally worth it. Can't wait to do it to the 4runner as well.

    It was noico sound deadening as well? How much was needed?
