This innovative rack system is an easy bolt-on solution for Wranglers that requires no modifications to the body of your Jeep. The unique swing-away feature allows you to access your soft top with ease, and the hard top or freedom panels can even be removed without removing the rack system. And as an added bonus, the forward mounting bar acts as an integrated light bar, plus it accepts the Rugged Ridge drop down light bracket (PN RUG11232.22) to mount up to 4 lights. Optional clamps (PN RUG11703.10) available for the Roof Rack System allow you to mount industry standard cross bars and racks so you can carry your favorite bikes, kayaks, skis, boards, or whatever your inner Sherpa desires. All components are dual stage textured black powder coated steel and an e-coat rust preventative pre-applied. Backed by the industry leading Rugged Ridge 5-Year Limited Warranty, you can count on this rack to perform for years to come.
This product is great however its not worth it to me. Very useful and convenient once you have all the parts. They have taken the liberty to separate the mounting brackets for the crossbars from everything else you can get for it. Seems pointless to me. Why not have the mounting brackets come with the crossbars. Its like buying a bra that doesn't come with the straps, then buying the straps come to find out that it doesn't come with the clasps. Very stupid if you ask me.
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!

will the swing away feature allow removal of he hard top on a 2013 saraha unlimited, and is there a quick release or does it require unbolting?
Asked by mmm from dover, florida on
Hello mmm, Yes, the swing away will allow you to remove the hardtop. The rack also has a easy 4 bolt removal system as well. Thank you for the question.
