While there may have been some swearing going on as I installed this on a sweltering Saturday morning what Jeep project truly doesn't involve swearing?!? The installation on my stock JK was straightforward and they definitely were spot on that it can be tilted back by one person when empty. It looks great and I can't wait to load it down on a long road trip. My only complaint is that you don't want to apply the silicone prior to fitting pieces as it appears they direct because it just gums up the joint and makes it more difficult to line up. Minor complaint learned on the front hoop early in the install.
It shipped lightning fast, but there were NO INSTRUCTIONS OF ANY KIND in the box. Fortunately, instructions are available online. Installed in under two hours. Not too impressed with the front attachment to the windshield brackets. You'll need to keep a ratchet and socket in the glove box for whenever you want to put the top down. The paint also chips pretty easily. Still, it's more stout than it looks in the picture, and it held my weight with no trouble.
I bought this rack for my kayak.It was very well made.I bought the cross supports also.It is perfect way to haul all your gear.Also it was easy to install.
Great rack to carry my canoe and ski's or simply extra luggage on the Wrangler! The rack get's a little noisy at about 100 km/h (60mph) but there is deflectors that can be purchased to reduce that noise. I won't bother as it doesn't get excessive anyway and I like the look as it is right now!
Great product. Fit nice holds heavy gear.
Quick shipping, easy to install
