Ive got a similar set up an 800 orion and a EVA with a MRK (2 meters or 440) on my M1008 Ive got 2 Orions on my other truck with a single control head (800 and UHF) Im going to add a 10 meter rig to my M1008I actually found both of mine on the local craigslist. A guy had an M1009 that burned down when the oil sample line broke loose and sprayed hot engine oil all over the hot engine. He had two brackets and I think I paid $20 each for them. Ebay or here in this forum are the other two best options, unless you see an M1009 rusting in a field somewhere.
Here's my set-up. Two GE Orion radios, one on 2 meter and one on 70cm running about 100 watts each, through a diplexer to a dual band antenna on a riser, on the bracket.
EDIT to add: I need one more antenna brush guard for the other side if anyone has a spare that's reasonably priced.
