Will.

Turns out the Safety Devices rack mount in Europe is for a full body roll cage so it won't work for me. I'm planning to have made the mount I designed (see pictures). Thanks for the description.

Wow that's a mouthful. There were two C brackets one on either side of the T bracket. Each bracket had a bolt too...

Found a picture ...

Hope that helps - I'd grind off the interfering mount thingy and put some C clamps...

Cool. An L bracket vs. a C bracket; Should be a simple, workable solution. I prefer the Hannibal racks over SD (or oth tubular designs) as well. Aluminum is a better material (IMO) - at least for weight savings. Sure it might bend or break before the steel ones but for that to happen, you'll likely have other/bigger problems.

195. Purchased from Copley. It definitely looks like an older restoration.

That was many years ago and it was a refurbish, not a restoration by any means.
Glad it has a new home.

For the price he paid I was hoping it was a restoration!

I don't know anything about the price. We built the truck for a nice gent in MA years ago. Did a 110 for him as well a couple years ago.

A restoration means a complete tear down and rebuild of every nut and bolt, new mechanicals, new paint, etc etc etc etc.
That truck was a nice low miles truck that got a frame swap and some very nice goodies, wasn't even really a refurbish, just a very nice truck that got some of the goods. I haven't seen it since we did the work.

So if you buy a sub-40K mile rust free NAS 90, put in a galv frame, a new 4.6, etc etc etc and then charge for every hour you worked on the truck you don't think it would be costly??

I find that kind of comment ridiculous and completely uninformed. Its like saying your racks are too costly because I can make one here after hours for less. Its a stupid comment not based in the reality of business.

Here is where I landed on the bracket design. Your input was very helpful. Thanks!

Wow, nice design man. Looks pretty sweet, and definitely more robust than what Hannibal was offerring in the past.
