Q don • 04/15/2020, 11:48:55 PM how much does this add to the weight ratings?

Q Ryan • 04/20/2020, 5:42:27 PM Where do the front bracket arms mount, near the front seat roll bar or above the rear seat roll bar?Is this product compatible with both the long and the short racks?
A 04/21/2020, 12:39:54 PM Above the rear seat roll-bar, yes it's compatible with both length racks.
Q Chris • 05/21/2020, 10:33:03 AM are there any install instructions available for this product? Also, are there any issues with leaking from the mounting points through the hardtop?
A 09/09/2020, 4:43:31 PM There are video instructions on the product page yes. No issues with leaking if you use RTV or silicon and replace it if it ever peels or cracks.
Q Bud Arnold • 06/21/2020, 8:53:12 PM Is that the 49" Adventure tent from FS in the pictures? I'm trying to get an idea of tent footprint compared to rack space, as the tents I'm looking to mount are 55" or 56" wide. FS lists the width of the 49" Adventure as 52" which, based on a previous answer you gave of 54" of useable rack space, looks like it lines up with the photos; would a tent with closed dimensions of 56" fit inside the side rails of the rack or would the base of the tent need to be raised to sit on top of the side rails?
A 06/24/2020, 5:25:15 PM 55" High Country
Q Sean • 07/21/2020, 2:28:14 PM I'm looking to mount a tuff stuff alpha tent on whatever roof rack I go with. It is 75" long when closed. will I still be able to mount that evenly/centred on the short rack? Or will the rack be too small and the tent be mounted to far back hanging over the rear?
A 07/21/2020, 3:41:07 PM That tent would not be able to be centered on the short rack. Depending on the height of the mounting brackets of the tent, you may need to space it up an inch or two even on the tall rack to clear the roof.
Q Sebastian • 08/26/2020, 4:16:06 PM Does this include a reinforcement for both sides or just one?
A 09/09/2020, 2:07:14 PM Both sides.
Q Ryan • 08/26/2020, 8:12:41 PM Where are the instructions for the reinforcement kit? I cannot find them in the web page anywhere and they did not come with the package when it arrived at my house. Thanks!
A 09/09/2020, 4:43:31 PM Install video is live on the product page. We apologize for the error, we thought it was already up.
Q Sebastian • 08/26/2020, 11:58:33 PM Is the top of the bracket drilled into the hard top?
A 09/09/2020, 4:43:31 PM Yes, drilling is required. Please see the install video.
Q Gerson Pineda • 09/01/2020, 11:32:17 AM Can i use this reinforcement with others rack or its only to the JCR rack? thanks
A 09/09/2020, 1:49:58 PM It's only compatible with our rack.
Q Nate • 09/01/2020, 4:34:06 PM Someone asked what the weight ratings were. Your response was "Enough dynamic capacity to mount a roof top tent and some gear safely". That 's not an acceptable answer. Can you provide the static and dynamic load bearing ranges for this product? That is a VERY important factor to consider when mounting something to your vehicle and the vague answer is worrisome.

Q eddie .v. • 04/03/2021, 4:22:09 PM can the jl roof rack reinforcement be used on the 2015 jku
A 04/12/2021, 3:11:53 PM The JK includes the reinforcement brackets.
Q Christian • 05/24/2021, 6:24:21 PM Is it possible to still remove the hardtop after using the reinforcement kit and is so, are the braces left on the rollbar or does ot separate there?
A 06/04/2021, 11:31:41 AM You would pull the rack and top as a unit. All the tie-in brackets would stay with the top. Super easy to do.
