Q Matt • 04/21/2020, 3:04:54 PM I have the full rack mounted to my gladiator, and was wondering if you offer extra side horizontal rails for sale separately? I wanted to double up on one side for extra mounting space.

Q Cesar Saenz • 04/23/2020, 3:20:54 PM What camping tent would fit this bed rack? Thanks
A 04/23/2020, 3:53:22 PM It's designed to be universal, but we are running the FreeSpirit High Country 55” on ours at the shop.
Q Mark Frazier • 04/30/2020, 0:48:16 AM I see you guys are running a 55" tent. Do you think the next size up (62") would overhang too much or interfere with tent windows?
A 04/30/2020, 2:54:26 PM The 55 fits great, but the extra 8" for the FSR 63" should not be an issue. May hang over the tailgate a little though.
Q Matt • 05/17/2020, 4:03:19 PM Anyone use with kayaks? Or can recommend a compatible j-style carrier?
A 05/19/2020, 2:18:41 PM Any universal j-mount seems to work fine.
Q Charles • 05/18/2020, 0:10:59 AM Is this compatible with the tri-fold mopar toneau cover? Will it close over top of the brackets on this? If not, are you guys planning to make a solution to go under this to help protect gear in the bed?
A 05/19/2020, 2:18:41 PM No, it's not compatible with the factory bed cover. We recommend the Access line of roll-up covers, please see the videos attached to this product page.

I’m extremely happy with my Jcr half rack. The rack is built really well and looks amazing on my gladiator. Instructions were good and straight forward. So far the rack has done very well with my rtt and bed cover. Looking forward to out fitting my gladiator and wife’s wrangler with more jcr products.

I'm most likely one of the few that will not be using the rack for a tent. With that said, I chose the JCR Off-road bed rack to attach various kayaking gear to. It is very well made, easy to install and rock solid. The powder coat seems to be a very decent mil and arrived flawless. I was so impressed with JCR Offroad's bedrack that I just recently purchased their stubby bumper with the prerunner hoop and also the lower skid. Can't wait to get that installed. The prerunner hoop will actually aid in tying down my kayaks (this is how I sold it to the wife).😁

Bought this rack to mount a tent for my gladiator and keep a low profile for less drag and allowing me to still park in garage. The assembly was straight forward no issues and I have mounted some accessories to it as well. Build quality seems to be good only complaint is the coating on the back of some of the top rails chipped off could be from me loading tent on and off but got a little rust. I just bought some rust oleum and that should be fine for touch ups. Would recommend the rack for anyone wanting a low profile rack for their tent. We took the Jeep with tent to Arkansas up to Kentucky and back with no issues off roading and camping

This thing is crazy sturdy. I went with the Full Size Bed Rack. We used this for our MOAB and Colorado trip. Smittybilt Overlander XL tent, 8 Gallons of Fuel, 8 Gallons of water mounted to it, contents in the bed secured to it. ZERO give or problems on major off-roading adventures. Plenty of side to side and bumps with all the gear and ZERO problems. This is mounted into the trail rail system in the Jeep bed. My wife and I plus a lot of gear in the tent on top proved this to be super sturdy as well.

I really like this bed rack for my Jeep Gladiator. Half height works really well for me. I had a cab height from a competitor that was really heavy and the drag driving down the highway was pretty bad. This bed rack is made more the sturdy enough to support my RTT off road. I would definitely recommend this half height if your looking to keep the weight ratio low while also cutting air drag on the highway while a RTT is mounted to it.

Got the half rack from JCR because I didn’t want my RTT sticking too far above my roof line. Assembly was easy. I don’t have the trail rail system, so I had to use the pressure clamps provided. The rear pressure clamps interfere with 2nits under the bed rail that are tack welded on. I H-D to notch out the pressure clamps to go between the nuts. It worked out and the rack is stable. I have the roam vagabond tent and was only able to get 4 holes to line up to bolt it down. So, because I wheel it with the track and tent attached, I ended up having to ratchet strap the tent down also for more security. Accessories have fit in the side Molle panels (rotopax, air tank and traction boards) with out any issues. All in all, it’s a great rack. Even if I did have to wait a while to get it.

Upon receiving my Gladiator full rack, assembly was fast and easy. I've already put it to fast use and like the overall quality and structural integrity. My only gripe would be that I requested to purchase an additional (2) side rail supports for additional accessories to be added, unfortunately, the staff advised that additional side rails are not available for sell, for unspecified reasons. I'm not trying to be overly harsh with a 4 star review, but I was seriously miffed. Regardless, it's a great product and I'm still considering to purchase more products.

Purchased several months ago. Install was really easy and it's a very solid rack! Have had a large RTT on it for about 4 months now and just came back from 5 days of off-roading in the Rockies where I was able to get to those hard to get to dispersed camping spots thanks to the Jeep and the rack making it possible to camp pretty much anywhere!

I’ll start by saying that the customer service is top notch. My order was for the full rack for a Gladiator. The order was taking a bit long due to availability. I called and explained that I had a trip coming up for which the rack was going to be needed. They looked into it and shipped my order the same day to make sure I didn’t miss my trip. I appreciate their attention to my concern and their willingness to help me out. I have to say that I am also impressed by the quality of the materials used to make this rack. It was very easy to install by myself and it didn’t take long. Kudos again on a great product and excellent customer service.

Just received my rack yesterday and got it install and mounted. I ordered the full rack as I plan to add a Gobi Stealth rack in a few months and wanted both racks somewhat equal in height and high enough to comfortably walk under an awning. I replaced my Ace Engineering Upper Decker with tent mounts with the JCR Bed Rack and the build quality is definitely on par or better than the Upper Decker. Only took about an hour to put together and mount. My only complaint is the rack I got, is not the rack in your installation video...looks like you tweaked the design a little and it is unfortunate. I am running a high clearance rear bumper and dual swingout with my 3rd brake light blocked by my spare. I had already planned on mounting a 3rd brake like to the rear crossbar and liked that in the install video, those crossbars included holes for zip ties. The rack I got however was only C Channel on the front and rear crossbars and were missing the additional bends of steel and pre-drilled holes that are shown in the video. Running my wires for the light will not be as stealth now as I think your original design allowed. I don't have anything mounted yet, but don't anticipate any issues with my tent or accessories. I recommend this rack based solely on the build quality and ease of install and price compared to other bed racks. But don't have any experience on function yet.
