NAS Basket mounting

Okay, so I was lucky enough to score that NAS basket a few weeks ago. Finally received it last Friday, but no mounting hardware.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/230918948628...84.m1497.l2649

My question is....does anyone have an NAS 110 or an ROW 110 with SD cage that can take a picture or two of the mounting points for the basket?

You can email me (PM me for my email) if you don't feel like posting pics here.

I don't know if it lines up with the B-hoop and C-hoop bolts on the cage because I haven't "dry-fitted" it yet, but jus wanted to know the correct method of mounting.

Anyone????

just bolts on with bolts through the tabs on the cage and basket. Uber simple but you can pay me $19k to do it and feed you some bullshit about it taking 400 hrours and your truck having a 109 tub.

A nylon washer in between the tabs keeps them from abrading.

Just the right amount of time has gone by where I can actually laugh at that joke......genuinely! Thanks for that chuckle, Doug!

I just looked at some pictures of a NAS 110 that was for sale on eBay (http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Land-...#ht_8526wt_980)
....and there is a halfway decent pic of the way the basket mounts.

Looks like a 1" or so neoprene spacer with a 5/16" stainless bolt/nut x 4 would do the trick. Just as long as there is enough spacing/clearance between the basket and the cage so there is no chaffing, right?
Thanks for the insight Doug.

They came with metal spacers. Maybe about an inch in length. I replaced mine with plastic.

Thanks Barry
Why plastic? Rust or vibration dampening?

Pretty sure mine were metal. I think their sole purpose is elevation. Some pics from way back before mine was disassembled. http://www.flickr.com/photos/justsom...7607119532731/

Mine were rusty and I just had the cage redone. They don't elevate the basket but fill the space between the basket and the bolt holes. I couldn't find metal so I used plastic and stainless bolts.

Thanks
Where did you get that material you're using for the floor on the basket?

THanks Sal, but like Doug said it is uber-simple.
I just placed the basked on the roof/cage and the 6 holes lined up perfectly.
I do need about 1.25" spacer on the front/rear two and the middle two require 3/8" spacers.
Using SS M10-1.5 x60 (and 30mm length for the center bolts)

I've got it up there with stacked plastic washers, but when I take it off to prep/powder coat in the spring, I'll find a prettier solution.
I think this may have been the only thing I have ever bolted onto my Defender that actually lined up without modification! I'll attribute that to the precision of Safety Devices, NOT Sollihul!

....and thanks a bunch for the lead on the farm supply house decking. Big help!
