Timberline Superbeef Roof Rack Brackets DIY Gutter Mount Chevy and Ford Vans
We went out and built a bunch of full-length roof racks for Ford E-series and G-series vans and installed them for people and waited to hear back. That worked well for about 50 racks, then we started building some heavier "walkable" steel racks. They got pretty heavy, then we had some customers load them with 1000lbs of gear and go out wheelin' in the desert and the support brackets just wouldn't hold up.
The result is a modified version of the popular "L" style gutter mount brackets seen on a lot of utility racks but totally beefed out.
These are the perfect universal-style gutter mount bracket for your roof racks. They are designed to work with the E-series vans and G-series vans and will hold an incredible amount of weight (we're not sure how much).
Our brackets are built from 10 gauge HRPO steel and each one is gusseted with boxed steel angles. These will work in pairs or quads, however, our basic kit is designed to use (3) pairs to mount a complete full roof rack on your van.
Our brackets come powder coated black and the footers are coated in a proprietary plastic material to keep from damaging the paint below your gutter. Hardware to attach the footers and angle brackets are included and painted black.
(these are a new product for us, we'll add some better photos asap!)
Construction / Sizing Notes:
The front and rear brackets have a little under 3.5" of rise and the center brackets have less to compensate for the curvature of your roof. This design keeps the mounting surface close to the top of the van to keep the rack profile as low as possible.
The top portion of the bracket extends in 6 inches to give you freedom for mounting options. The tips of the mounting surface have a slotted hole for a 1/4" bolt or use a carriage bolt to keep everything very clean looking.
Fitment Designed for:
Van Side - 1992-2014 Ford E-series vans (short or extended), 2003-current G-series vans. (Chevrolet Express/GM Savana)
These will absolutely fit earlier models, and other gutter-style vehicles, however, these are the only models we've actually fitted them on.
Standard hand tools
(4) "Tall brackets" (2) "Short brackets" gutter clamps, and hardware. This kit does not come with the hardware to fasten your rack, as each one is different.
