Red Dot A/C on Helmet Top

Was this type or a similar swing out type of condenser mount for a helmet top supplied by red dot, or were they fabbed up? If factory, is this swing arm available from any sources?

Not wild about mounting it up top where it will get drug thru tree limbs etc, and the rear swingarm would get in the way of a future spare tire carrier. What are the options and pros/cons for adding a condenser to the radiator stack? The unit I got is designed to be mounted behind the cab between antenna towers mounted on the fenders.

Also, I got the serpentine compressor with both old and new style serpentine mounts. Would be interested in trading for a v-belt compressor.

Anyone have a source or identifier for the swing away carrier for the condensing unit in the photo?

That picture is from the red dot website. I suspect they make those brackets.

No clue on part number(s)

Contacted our local red dot distributor - nice guy - he is looking. Into it - I'll post what he finds out if anything.
