Q Lane Nageotte-Taylor • 04/27/2020, 8:02:25 PM Can you mount lights into the openings on this without making modifications to the rack?
A 04/28/2020, 1:46:26 PM The openings were not designed around any lighting. You could likely do it, but drilling would be required.
Q vinny • 06/01/2020, 11:36:15 AM where can I find the top roof rack ?
A 06/02/2020, 11:25:09 AM On the Gladiator in the photos? It's code: JTRK (https://www.jcroffroad.com/product/JTRK.html)
Q kyle mciver • 08/20/2020, 1:25:32 PM Are there brackets to mount this on an XJ roof?
A 09/09/2020, 2:07:14 PM We don't offer this mounting solution. As they are the exact same width, if you did mount it up there with some brackets you would have to space the basket slightly above the roof rack.
Q Sean M Hunter • 01/05/2021, 10:51:22 PM Can this rack be mounted onto a Putco Venture TEC rack? https://www.putco.com/venture-tec-rack
A 01/07/2021, 1:01:36 PM We haven't tried specifically, but it shouldn't be an issue.
Q Gary • 02/08/2021, 9:05:30 AM What is the height of the sides?
A 02/08/2021, 10:28:40 AM 4" from the bottom of the rack structure and 3" from the rack floor.
Q Paul • 02/26/2021, 11:12:01 PM how low does/can it hang below the bed rack if mounted beneath? interested in RTT on top and spare 37 on this cargo basket below. possible?
A 03/01/2021, 3:02:24 PM There should be enough room for a 12.5" tire with the side rails in the lowest setting on the rack, but it would be impossible to get the tire in and out with the top bars installed on the rack. You may be able to leave the back side of the basket off on install and slide the tire and and out that way however.
Q Jacob • 03/06/2021, 1:55:54 PM Would this mount to an RCI bed rack?
A 03/08/2021, 12:20:24 PM It's pretty universal, it should work.
Q Scott E Greenwood • 05/22/2021, 6:39:54 PM Does is come with the necessary hardware to mount underneath the full size bed rack? And are there any pictures of what this looks like mounted underneath? Thanks.
A 06/04/2021, 11:08:38 AM It does not come with the brackets to mount it underneath. We don't have an option for that yet for the JT, you would need to fabricate something.
Q wayne goff • 06/02/2021, 12:35:17 PM Does the basket come with the mounting brackets that hook to the bed ? or is it just the basket itself
A 06/04/2021, 11:31:41 AM It's just the basket itself.
Q Brent • 06/19/2021, 11:50:19 AM Could this be mounted to the top of your gladiator bed rack and be used to hold a 37” spare tire?
A 06/25/2021, 11:08:27 AM Sure could.
Q Brian Mose • 06/29/2021, 8:21:41 PM Looking to purchase the universal basket with 12 rack. The pictures indicate it’s mounted on a gladiator with a tonneau cover. Can u get me specifics on what covers will allow this unit to be installed?
A 07/08/2021, 2:19:03 PM Access Roll-up Covers. More info here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=so5ocpZcGcM
Q John • 07/19/2021, 0:13:11 AM I have a new 2021 Jeep gladiator, overland- I like the look of this rack for hauling boxes ect- dose this come with everything I need to mount it right to my Jeep once assembled?? I really like the low profile and cleaner lines on this one.
A 07/23/2021, 10:31:57 AM The basket itself doesn't come with any mounts. You could mount it to our bed rack (https://www.jcroffroad.com/product/JTBR.html) or to a pair of lower profile bed bars offered by other companies.
Q BVegas • 08/12/2021, 2:21:13 PM Does this fit on the Westin bed rack?
A 08/12/2021, 2:32:10 PM It can, but how it mounts is up to you.
Q Devin Cutting • 10/30/2021, 2:42:14 AM Is there any type of netting or something that could be used for gear over this or is it just recommended to use ratchet straps? I just prefer netting if at all possible, but if not no big deal as this is definitely my next purchase!
A 12/07/2021, 2:34:43 PM We have used elastic bungee nets and they work well, just hook to the edges of the basket and hold everything in place.
Q Dan • 03/15/2023, 10:07:37 PM Weight of the basket?
A 03/30/2023, 3:37:00 PM Weight: 45.0 (lbs)
Q Josh • 06/11/2023, 11:00:28 PM Will this mount to the JT overland bed rack?
A 06/27/2023, 5:13:41 PM Yes, this could be bolted to the Overland Bedrack.
Q Joshua • 06/20/2023, 6:42:57 PM Does this fit on top of the JT Overland Bed Rack for the Gladiator?
A 06/22/2023, 4:52:48 PM This could be bolted to the top of the Overland rack. Our support team can help with different mounting questions as well. email@example.com

We had one of these on our company Jeep Gladiator and are now adding one to our brand new company Nissan Frontier Pro-4X. We use it to haul heavy dredging hose, waterproof spare parts boxes and was easy to add hazard lighting, work/flood lights, and a rearward facing lightbar. Follow the directions and it goes together easy. We mounted it to our overland rack using the 4 supplied T-nuts, and our own 4 bolts of appropriate/needed length and four 1.25 sections of stiff, small-diameter rubber automotive hose for the mounting bolts to go through (the rubber hose pieces act as spacers between your overland rack and this basket). No rattle, no vibration, no coming loose. And we were fairly hard on the rack with heavy dredging hoses and fittings. Figure out where you want lights, and just add them, drilling appropriate holes and running wires underneath using rubber grommets, etc. l Even took it through soft touch car washes and no issues ( though not advised). Awesome rack, well made, well designed.
