Create a custom rack using 8020, unistrut, or other custom solution.
Ram Promasters are great vans for both work and for play but when it comes to mounting a roof rack they didn’t make it easy. Unaka Gear Company is proud to bring you a new Ram Promaster roof rack bracket that can be used for a Do It Yourself roof rack using unistrut or 8020, a custom roof rack, or a commercial roof rack. Whether you are making a ladder rack, a low profile rack for your solar panels, or a full size rack with a deck to stand on these are the brackets for you.
Our two piece ram promaster roof rack brackets are made from extruded 6061 Aluminum. The finished features are then precision machined using a CNC mill so that every part meets the same high standards we shoot for here at Unaka Gear Co. After machining they are Black Anodized to give them further corrosion resistance to the elements. The contact points between the roof rack brackets and your van are protected by extruded Neoprene Rubber Trim eliminating the potential to mark or rub the paint of your van. The open profile design will not allow rain water to be trapped underneath the bracket eliminating any concerns that some other products on the market may have. Each rack bracket set includes two Stainless Steel bolts and washers to withstand the test of time.
Our brackets work great with some of the common DIY rack materials. If you use our brackets with Unistrut you typically will not have to modify the strut slots like you will with some other brands. We also offer 8020 adapter brackets which make building an 8020 roof rack a breeze. Click here to see our 8020 adapter brackets!
Full 8020 Kits: We are now stocking 8020 extrusion at our shop. This is allowing us to control the lead time on your rack kit. In some cases we have shipped these as fast as the same day depending on stock availability! Click here to configure your 8020 rack!
If you are building your rack out of 8020 or Uni-Strut you should definitely check out our Flush Mount Solar Panel Brackets. If you have purchased other brackets go ahead and return them. You will just end up having to modify them or struggle with them to try and achieve the same look, but you won't. Our brackets will give you an easy to install sleek looking aerodynamic installation that will outlast your van. Click here to check out these Flush Mount Solar Panel Brackets!
Even though we do provide each set of brackets with a standard set of hardware, these brackets can be used with any length bolt. This gives you the flexibility to bolt any thickness material to your roof whether it is aluminum extrusion, uni strut, a custom roof rack, or even a 2 x 4. Just simply adjust your bolt length to make up the difference of the thicker material.
As always if you have any questions about how to use these brackets, how to install them, common configurations, which hardware length to use with these brackets for your project let us know. We are here to help!
Overall Dimensions: 3.125" Long x 1.125" Wide x 1" Tall with 2" center to center bolt hole spacing. **These dimensions do not include the thickness of the rubber on the bottom edges.
