A 03/19/2020, 4:51:23 PM Sure does Bill!
Q Samuel • 03/26/2020, 10:18:50 PM I know it says JL but will it also fit a JK?
A 04/06/2020, 11:50:26 AM They fit JL only.
Q don • 04/15/2020, 11:38:53 PM what is the gap between the rails and the hard top
A 04/16/2020, 5:17:11 PM It depends on where you measure, but roughly 1-2"

A 05/27/2020, 3:38:53 PM Overall usable space on the short rack is about 51" long by 54" wide.
Q Donald • 06/11/2020, 9:44:13 AM will the half rack hold a roof tent?
A 06/16/2020, 9:57:53 AM With the add-on reinforcement (JLRKMT-RF-PC) it would handle the weight as long as it was a smaller tent and not hanging over the front and rear of a rack a ton.
Q Chris Salicrup • 06/29/2020, 3:12:32 PM Hello, will this rack support a Batwing awning using your roof awning brackets?
A 07/07/2020, 2:23:55 PM The mounts are meant to be pretty universal, but we haven't tested this specifically.
Q James Gray • 07/16/2020, 6:10:56 PM What is the height measurement over the roof on the short rack? Also, can you remove the freedom panels with the short rack installed?
A 07/21/2020, 3:41:07 PM About 2.25" above the highest portion of the hard top. Yes, the freedom panels are removable with the short rack installed.

A 08/12/2020, 3:39:22 PM For sure you will need the additional support brackets. The short rack has about 51" usable length, so that would be a smaller tent.

Q Amelio Barkho • 02/03/2021, 4:40:48 PM Where can I get overall dimensions of this roof rack? I would like to know the dimensions specifically where the Roof Rack clamps on to the Freedom Panels. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Q Stuart • 02/18/2021, 4:32:12 AM Looking to install a roof top tent that weights 176Lbs. With the full rack and the additional frame supports you sell would your rack be able to withstand at least that for dynamic load?

Q Shaye Powers • 03/12/2021, 5:47:11 PM How tall off of the roof is this rack once installed. I need to be under 5 inches in order to fit in my garage.

Q John Heibel • 04/04/2021, 7:31:46 PM What is the weight of the full rack?
A 04/12/2021, 3:11:53 PM About 45 lbs.
Q Larry • 05/14/2021, 5:33:23 PM Does the short rack interfere with the satellite radio antenna in terms of reception?
A 05/21/2021, 11:22:51 AM It can, we recommend relocating the antenna as the signal with the hard top is poor even without a rack. There are brackets on the market to do this.
Q Mike Varela • 06/03/2021, 8:32:46 AM I see this is for 2018 and newer. Does it for sure not work with 2016 Wrangler jk
A 06/04/2021, 11:31:41 AM You would want JKRK - https://www.jcroffroad.com/product/JKRK.html
Q Dana Laut • 06/12/2021, 4:20:09 PM Does it work with the soft top?
A 06/25/2021, 11:08:27 AM It does not.
Q Taylor Zinninger • 06/18/2021, 11:17:15 AM what is the static load rating for the rack with the support system installed?
A 06/25/2021, 11:08:27 AM That would be at your discretion. We haven't had issues with two adults in a 150 lb RTT on this system, but we haven't tested a hardtop to failure to get a max capacity.
Q andrew • 09/15/2021, 7:10:18 PM is the back edge (support) of the short rack the same height as the rails. I want to mount a tent but it is slightly wider than the rack and would need to hang over,
A 09/23/2021, 12:51:41 PM Yes, same height.

JL Roof Rack - Half Rack
(North Carolina) | February 26th, 2021
I was in the market for an economical but quality half rack to carry a few items (spare fuel/water, sleep items, spare clothing, camp kitchen items) on the roof for our adventures. This rack fit that bill. The installation was super easy for one person, just needed a hand lifting it up on the hardtop for final placement. It looks really good, great quality materials and low profile design. I will be installing some scene lighting and emergency lighting this month to finish it all off. Overall very happy with the product. If there was one thing I would like to see changed/updated for future buyers, it would be to supply all black hardware. Everything on this rack has been powder coated black and all the hardware is not, which seems like an oversight to me. Increase the price a few bucks and supply the hardware, it will make this already great looking rack cleaner. Thanks JCR for making a quality product and having great customer service!
Nice rack.. Needed to relocate Sirius antenna after install.
(California) | February 20th, 2021
I really like this rack it arrived well packaged with no damage. The hardware bag heat seal had broken so the hardware was all over the bottom of the box but everything was there. No issues with installation. I fabricated four brackets to hold either four Rotopax or two Rotopax and my traction mats. I like the adjustability of the rack but I wish you could insert the sliding nuts from either side of the bar not just one side it would make the initial mounting of accessories easier. This was the first sliding nut type rack I have had so it took some getting used to for mounting accessories but I was able to get everything I wanted on it and I was even able to get the shovel mount from my old JK rack to work so I am happy. On the drive to work the next day after install I noticed my Sirius cutting out, I thought it might just be cloudy weather.. I had no idea the rack would cause the Sirius signal to cut in and out. My previous JK Roof rack didn't block the signal and this one isn't any larger. I had to google for a Sirius antenna relocation bracket and I moved the Sirius antenna to the front. After antenna relocation I get less dropouts than I did with the factory location before the rack was installed. There is a spot on the way to work by 7-11 that has cut out for me the last 6 years with both JK/JL after relocating the antenna it doesn't even drop there anymore. So other than blocking the Sirius signal no issues. I really like the rack, it's fairly easy to install accessories, it's lightweight and low profile. I wish the sliding nuts could slide in from both sides but this racks a winner..
JL Half Roof Rack
(Denver CO) | December 15th, 2020
So you want your JL Unlimited to have a sleek roof rack that lets you ride on 35' tires, have a two-inch Mopar lift, let you open the freedom panels or Bestop Sunriderk, carry recovery boards, AND still fit in your garage? Well this rack checks all those boxes and I still have an inch of clearance to spare! it also looks great and has held up nicely since I put it on a few months ago.
JL Roof Rack
(Tampa FL) | October 1st, 2020
Was looking for the best priced and best made roof rack that I could find. Typically this is an impossible task as you either get a good product at a cost or a low price sacrificing craftmanship. Luckily I found both with this unit right here. I still can believe how well made and affordable this roof rack was. I am very pleased with my purchased. I called twice for order status and the second time they had a tracking number for me. The staff was great and it arrived in about to weeks even in the middle of Covid-19. Great rack, great company.
