Q Shaun Sweeney • 10/30/2020, 4:30:06 PM Does this bag also include the (6) 5/16"-18 button heads for the gutter brackets as well? Looking to swap out the hardware on the XJ Adventure rack. (which should come standard with black hardware!) Thanks!
A 11/03/2020, 3:48:44 PM The kit does not include the gutter mount hardware. Those bolts are actually zinc-coated grade 5 and not stainless, we would recommend painting them black instead.

This is not a "kit" because it does not include ALL of the parts necessary to "blackout" the rack. After the terrible customer service, I'll never buy another one of their products.
Note From JcrOffroad: We apologize for any confusion on this bolt kit. We do believe that we offered a refund if you returned the kit, please let us know how else we can help.

I don't judge people by the color of their skin but I now judge owners of JCR and Victory racks by the color of their hardware. Are they mere commoners who felt it was ok to install - gasp! - the stock hardware or do they enjoy the finer things in life, such as bolts and washers that actually match the color of the rack? On a more serious note, as another reviewer mentioned, this should be included with the rack in the first place. Jeep owners: note that the eight heavy-duty bolts that attach the rack to mounting brackets and the brackets to your roof are not part of this set - it only replaces the smaller hardware that assembles the actual rack.

The hardware itself is pretty decent and they give you everything you need plus extras. The only con is that it should have already come with the rack. Diesnt make sense to make a part that is 100% black but give shiny chrome hardware with it. Most folks looking for a part that's black powder coated are going to want matching hardware. Feels like the black hardware should have been what comes with the rack and the chrome/stainless hardware should have been the additional option. If I would have wrote this review the day I found out my rack came with chrome hardware it would have been full of expletives. I've had time to think and remember that generally JCR does me right and I love them so I decided to take it easy. Stinks to get your rack and not be able to install it immediately. Also price is a bit high but not egregious.
