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.
Instructions appear to be written by someone who has never assembled the rack. Directions to install with OEM rear bumper lead me to put the rear supports on wrong, with required changing them the rest of the rack did not align with them. See photos of correct orientation and of the two nuts and one bolt that must be removed to install the supports. Also, found it easier to remove doors and hold the hinge backing plates myself then to find a contortionist to lay across the seats and hold them for me. Other than problems with the instructions, I love the rack and how it allows me to carry my canoe, ladders, lumber, etc. with a soft top.
This is a great fitting & looking rack. It is reasonably easy to install. I installed it by myself, but had wifey hold inner door hinge plates. This does not fit the XRC Smittybuilt rack without removing the angle brackets & trimming wrap around part of the bumper.
