Finally, a complete roof rack system that is tough enough to conquer the off road! Constructed of over-built 2 x .120 wall textured powder coat painted steel tubing backed by heavy duty 1/4 brackets, this Roof Rack System is as tough as it is good looking!
Features: Removable Cross Bars for easy Soft or Hard Top removal. The Cross Bars are designed for use with almost all aftermarket accessories (Thule, Yakima, etc.) Four point mounting -- Attaches to front door mounts and to the rear frame -- Holds up to 300 pounds of evenly distributed cargo. Contoured design eliminates the typical boxy look. Add on the lightweight Outland Rugged Rack for the ultimate off road rack / basket combination. Modular design is easy to install and is UPS-able.
No help from Smittybilt. No fasteners to attach SRC rack to Defender basket. Asked Smittybilt for help and was ignored. Stay away.
outside frame goes on well .crossbars did not fit proper.Cross bar knobs really suck.the nuts inside knob spin around and wont get tight.The instructions show American standard hardware.ALL hardware is metric.............NOT A HAPPY CAMPER
I've been looking for a roof rack for a while and was not really happy with what was available. When I saw this style and I saw that I would be able to put the jeeps top down without removing the roof rack I was sold. Thank you 4WD since it was ordered on Thursday am and was at my home Friday to be installed on Saturday. Before you buy please read and think about these reviews. This was a three hour install and if you understand these reviews you will understand why. The directions are useless to a point. As another reviewer stated layout all your pieces so you understand the assembly. There are two thing I want to mention. 1. The lower door hinge. If you remove your door and are careful you can remove the hinge bolts and never moved the hinge bracket. Put a piece of the supplied foam sheet over the hinge bracket for protection. Attach the upper roof rack bracket with one bolt then swing the tube over the hinge bracket and carefully install the two bolts. Then install the last bolt on top. Snug up all bolts - do not tighten - since you will need some flexibility to install the rest of the assemblage. Put your door back on so if the bracket does come loose your preserve the door alignment. 2. The rear mount. The instructions read that you need to remove the rear bumper. This is not true. You can remove the milk jug and then the two rear bumper nuts. There is a small piece of metal that needs to be cut away for the bracket to fit. You also need to grind out the holes on the bracket bringing them a little closer to each other. Position the bracket and re install the bumper nuts. I actually cut out the milk jug and re installed it for a nice finished look. Also, like other reviewers stated the plastic knobs that they give you are junk. pop the nuts out of them and go to your local hardware store and get new knobs. Most people who have a Jeep like to tinker and this rack if perfect for us. I put pipe insulation on the cross members for a completed finished look. Over all very happy with the product but disappointed that the engineering is not better.
Will this rack fit on my 2005 Jeep LJ or (long wheel base) model? It has different dimensions than the standard wrangler. If not, is there a rack that is compatible?

Gunnar, the Smittybilt SRC Roof Rack will not fit your LJ. Here is the one you will need:http://www.4wd.com/Jeep-Exterior-Parts-Accessories/SRC-Roof-Rack.aspx?t_c=3&t_s=82&t_pt=3426&t_pn=S%2fB76715. Thanks for the question!
