    Default Fittings and adaptors mounting

    Can anyone share pictures of how they have mounted fittings, adaptors and appliances on their rigs? We are in the final delivery stage of a new engine and the dealer will install mounts to meet our needs.
    We havent ever had a new truck so honestly we just piled them in a compartment on the old trucks. We want to do it right with this new engine. We do have a roll up cabinet with a hinged door in it so we can mount on the back cabinet and both sides of the door.
    So if you can post your pics I can gleam some good ideas.
    Thanks in advance.

    We had slot walls installed on the vertical slide out trays. To fasten things to this wall all you do is slide a bolt up the slot place the bracket on the bolt and tighten the nut onto the bracket. This allows you to move, or even change, the bracket without having to drill holes.

    When we got our new rig delivered at the beginning of the year, we had a company called Fire and Marine, Inc. do the compartments up. Sutphen left all the shelving and adapters to them. We took all the equipment down with us the the final inspection, and worked with these guys for nearly 1/2 a day figuring exactly where we wanted everything. Here are some before and after photos they sent me. we couldn't be happier with the way it turned out.

    We used these mounts on our truck in 2006-7. Fittings and stuff we mounted the slotted track material and bolted the regular mounts to them. A lot easier to find stuff than piles of fittings that fall out on your feet.

    Just another option to look at.

    As FyredUp said, loosen bolt and move without the truck turning into swiss cheese with holes.

    Between Ziamatic (Zico) http://www.ziamatic.com/ and Pac Tool Mounts http://www.pactoolmounts.com/ they have most any type of mounting bracket you would need.

    These are delivery photos of our engine showing some of the various tool mounts: http://picasaweb.google.com/11491232...Jnhg6qTt8vNLA#

    Plastix Plus http://pptexas.com/ also makes some really nice custom brackets

    Hines,

    We used PAC tool mounts and screw bases. I wish I would have looked more at quick fist mounts. A buddy used them on his truck to mount things, and the mount seemed sturdy and durable. I also used a lot of webbing straps and clips for the other compartments and used unistrut mounts that fit into the shelving tracks.
