i agree about the height and head room.

I am average height and if it goes higher it will also mean its harder to deploy. For me the main thing is MPG and noise. Afraid if it is higher it will ruin both.

yes!! make sure the t-slot nuts are vertical inside the rail while tightening.. there is a line on the threaded end of the hardware that indicates the direction of the t-nut

I considered the height, and actually made different height brackets... I chose to go with a straight design that allowed me more room for a roof basket and enough to open the doors with the awning deployed..

Did you think about having a second set of Attachments holes for the awning so that you could move it higher when you want to deploy it and use the lower to transport?

That is a possability.. for me I wouldnt want to mount and dismount the awning. I would probably make an ajustable bracket.. maybe with 6 of adjustment..

I went with 3 holes for the awning side because ARB supplies 3 bolts.. a rectangle with 4 nolts would work also...

I have an extra set if your interested
Are you selling these brackets?

I have driven with the awning for months / 1000s of miles without any issues
There is still room on the rack for a basket...
