    Join this group and ask. Some of these guys do custom bodywork. https://m.facebook.com/groups/1402449166674335?ref=bookmarks
  2. In the middle photo the door is open 180 just for clarity. In use the door is opened 90 deg and shim dropped in. My TC is a 2016.Not sure if other years have the same bulges on the rods. Or you could clamp a cheap pair of vise-grips on one of the rods.
  3. Windguy, I copied your design with a few modifications to help support a half-fast awning to cover the kitchen when my wife and I camp.I built a slide out chuck box between the rear doors(now in the basement so not in the pictures). I used 5/16 eye bolts ,6x8 tarp and 2 sizes of electrical conduit to make the length adjustable.
  4. A much simpler solution.Looking at my 2016 rear door check arm I noticed a 1/8in bulge on the side arms.I cut a 1/4 in slit in a piece of 1/16 x2x3 aluminum and can insert it between the door and the bulge.Works like a champ
  5. For those who have managed to disable approach lights,does this affect interior lights?My 2016 cargo light is unswitched and only comes on if a door is opened.
  6. Nice.How about a picture over your right shoulder showing increased visability for backing.I need something like this.
  7. I had good luck with these guys 12 yrs ago. https://www.rackattack.com/van-truck-racks/van-racks/tracrac-tracvan-es-for-ford-transit-connect/
  8. Not sure what factory channels look like but I installed the weatherguard mounting channels( see weatherguard picture,similar to yours?) and weatherguard 218-3-03 racks.Very industrial looking but will haul ladders or sheet goods. Racks were PAINFULLY noisey until I filled the underside with expanding foam. http://www.weatherguard.com/en/view/Products/Van Storage Equipment/Roof Racks/Mounting Kit/2085-0-01 https://americanladders.com/product/model-218-3-all-purpose-rack-aluminum-2-cross-member/
  9. Bigfoot Wondering how your window install went?
  10. Intrested also. Laid a straight edge across the outside of my 2016 and see a bit of a bow.Maybe there's enough flex to get a good seal.Give it a good spray with a hose and let us know.
