Awning mounted to OEM rack?

Just wanted to see if anyone mounts these to oem roof racks.. I eventually want an aftermarket roof rack but I need an awning for the wife and soon to be little one sooner than later. I was looking at the ARB 2500x2500 but I think it might be a bit too long for the oem rack to handle so I was also looking at the ARB 2000x2500.. was also thinking about getting the deluxe room attachment as well and using it as a tent/changing room.

As you likely know, I can't help directly from experience, but I thought I saw an ARB awning on a 3rd gen, with the factory rack. I believe it was here, but the images are down.

ARB Awning Install: 3rd Gen 4Runner w / Stock Roof Rack | Expedition Portal

So, doable, and seemingly worked well...

Nice find! Itís too bad it wonít load the pictures, sounds like he came up with a pretty simple/effective way of mounting it. Iíll have to try and visualize what he is talking about. Sounds like he went with the 2000x2500 awning.. Iím just worried that wonít be big enough.. wish I could see all the sizes in person before I made the decision..

Maybe worth joining that forum to contact that poster? Since it seems it's doable alright, and can be done nicely, maybe just get one, and figure it out. You do nice work, so I'd bet you do a great job!

I saw someone had tried contacting him at the end of that thread. Itís almost 10 years old so I donít expect him to be active anymore haha.. just from his description though I think I can figure out how he did it. I guess what Iím really trying to figure out is wether to get the 2500 or the 2000 (8í wide vs 6í wide).. Iíd prefer the 2500 since itís a 10-20$ cost difference but it would suck to find out I need a full length rack to mount it securely. Thanks for believing in me! Lol

I imagine people here have those two ARB offerings. If so, some measurements and photos might go a long way for you in determining which one to get... If sold locally, maybe worth a trip.

Nice! That looks great! Is that one about 8í long? Iím not opposed to drilling holes in the crossbars at all.

Do you have the link for the awning you got? Also, did it come with the brackets and hardware?

if you take the Load bars off. un screw and remove the ends you can take the rubber out and there is a channel that you can use to slide a t bolt into and mount those simple L brackets on.

I used an piece that I had left over from a RTT mounting system. flat aluminum piece that had a little indent for holding the bolt head from spinning.
I then trimmed the rubber to fit.
