The basket is large, and strong enough to carry a spare tire or camping gear. There is a front windshield to reduce noise and to keep some of the bugs off of the gear bags. We have included welded light tabs for those that want more light for the trail. The basket is painted in our dual process textured black powder coat finish.
I purchased mine about a month ago. It is as sturdy as you can imagine. There was a little rattle going over bumps, but torquing the bolts solved that problem. The problem I have yet to figure out is the ungodly roaring as the air rolls over the rails at highway speed. It's unnerving. I spent four hours driving to Moab and back and think I'm now certifiably crazy. I asked the installer to check it out for me and they came back and told me Body Armor just said well, by install a rack on the roof, you've change the aerodynamics of the Jeep. No kiddin? It's a great rack if you can tolerate the noise. wh
Is the base rack can be use with out the roof basket, if yes, does it loose strength ?? in fact what i would like to see is if it's possible to use the base rack as a sea kayak roof rack thanks
Asked by Pierre Bond from Santo Domingo on
According to the vendor, this rack can be used with accessories other than the basket. The vendor recommends a maximum of 350 lbs. dynamic (while driving), less if on extreme trails, and 500 lbs. static (not moving). We recommend that you purchase Thule or Yakima Crossbars and the appropriate kayak carrier for best results. Thanks!
