I have the Mopar rack and the Rhino Rack awning. All the different brand awnings are probably pretty much the same. This is the hardware that came with my awning

This might be a stupid question, but how are you screwing that bracket into the rail like that? Is there already a screw point or dit you drill into it?

Also, do you maybe have a link to the awning you bought?

I also read awhile back the Thule locks fit the torx bolt on the roof rack. I’m 100% sure I’m 75% correct. Look up the thread for stopped the whistling on the Mopar Roof Rails.

Yes, the awning came with everything you need to mount it.
Did the awning come with all the hardware needed to mount it to the Mopar rails?

Thanks for the pic! Looks great. I didn’t realize the mopar roof rack had a t slot up top for secure mounting options

I did some more research on the ARB awning system and it doesn't include brackets. And the bracket kit does not include hardware. So you're kind of on your own to find what T-slot nuts will fit the Mopar rails. Does anyone know the size? Or else trial and error will work...
