This Sherpa roof rack kit from Rugged Ridge includes the roof rack, crossbar adapters, and two 56.5-inch round crossbars. The Rugged Ridge Sherpa Roof Rack was designed to add valuable cargo space above the roofline of JK Wrangler. A true bolt-on installation, the Roof Rack requires no modification to the Jeep's body and features a unique tilt function for convenient access to your hard or soft top. With the Roof Rack system installed, hard top and freedom panels can be added or removed, and the soft top can be easily retracted or raised.
First off, the directions are terrible. There are vague pictures and minimal words to explain the steps. Granted, most who are installing these probably have some general idea of what to do, but for the first time installer... they are terrible. Second, you really do not need to remove THE ENTIRE rear bumper as the directions state. Just the 4 side bolts... again, better directions or a better picture would have saved me about 45 min. Put the weep hole protection in before you hang anything. You'll be glad you did. The step 13 about the rubber bumper installation... ya, best practice, only put in one nut first. It is not long enough to reach the end as pictured. You have to draw that nut way deep in the bumper before you can mess with any other part of it. Then DON'T do as the picture shows and put the inside nuts on together. The need a gap and once you tighten it all up, then you can adjust the outside nut to lock the bumper in place against the body. Yet another place better instructions would have been nice.
Can I use this product to clamp Thule crossbars to the Body Armor Roof Rack base, part number B/AJK-6124? I have the roof rack on my 2011 Wrangler Sahara Unlimited. Thank you.

Andrew, Unfortunately the Rugged Ridge Sherpa Roof Rack Adapter will not work with the Body Armor Roof Rack Base. Please let us know if you have any other questions. Thanks!

I have a Smitty Bilt SRC rear bumper (Gen 1) on a 2013 Rubicon Unlimited. Would the Sherpa rack fit with this bumper in place? The location of the wrap-around portion appears to be the same height as the factory bumper.
Asked by Travis from on
Travis, the Rugged Ridge Sherpa Roof Rack System will fit just fine with that bumper. Hope this helps!
