RTT on SD cage, pics thoughts

Hi, After searching for some pictures and comments for a RTT on a SD cage recently installed have turn up little to nothing.

Currently have a Sankey with RTT but in reality I don't like the trailer setup, will sell if a mounting for RTT can be solved.

Any input or ideas would be nice,
Thank you in advance

Edit; Exmod 110 ;--)

Yes,exactly what I'd like instead of the Sankey set up,
Thanks for reply,
I'd really like to understand how it's mounted, DIY or a kit available, like everyone else it won't be permanently mounted

If I was setting my truck with the full cage up for a RTT, I would just set it on 2 cross beams and drill accordingly. I would likely run the bolts thru the floor and use lock washers and wing nuts, with a dab of blue locktite

Most RTT's already have the brackets to install directly onto the cage cross bars. depending on brand, you may need longer bolts. too easy.

Mine is mounted on full length Hannibal, which serves more purposes than just RTT mounting.

If I were you I'd go straight onto the roll cage. Consider that if you mount the RTT on something that is mounting to the cage, you are adding middle-man inches to your center of gravity. 2-3 inches for a cross bar is not insignifcant.

On my previous 110, I used collar clamps (look around, they're used for all kinds of stuff) to mount a piece of non-skid MDO. I then drilled this to accept my tent. Gave a nice access platform and also makes it a bit easier to install and remove the tent.
