Q Ernesto Limon • 03/28/2020, 1:58:21 PM Is this rack compatible with a 2-door model? If so, does it hang over the front of the roof going over the windshield?
A 04/06/2020, 11:50:26 AM The 2dr XJ is the exact length of the 4dr. This rack will fit great on either.
Q Zach A • 04/13/2020, 12:01:27 PM Could you please tell me, what are the dimensions of the cross member rails?
A 04/16/2020, 5:17:11 PM The rack usable dimensions are roughly 72 long by 52 wide.
Q John • 04/23/2020, 8:51:23 PM How much wind noise is generated by the light bar cut out? Is there any provision for additional support brackets?
A 04/27/2020, 3:56:52 PM Wind noise is minimal. Extra supports to the rain gutters you mean? No not as designed. They could be easily drilled and added though.
Q Scott • 05/07/2020, 10:12:56 PM I have a 2000 XJ with a sunroof. Can a bar be taken out to allow the roof to open with this roof rack?
A 05/11/2020, 3:54:04 PM You can remove one bar for the sunroof if needed, yes.
Q sean • 06/05/2020, 11:40:12 AM Would this be compatible with any roof top tents? Har to tell from the pics, but how far do the cross ties sit below the side panels when installed?
A 06/05/2020, 3:03:23 PM We recommend using our RTT brackets to lift the tent high enough to allow easy attachment. Code: VRKRTT (https://www.jcroffroad.com/product/VRKRTT-PC.html)

Ray (Gilbert AZ) | December 24th, 2020
Wow... just as I expected, just wow. This is the only rack to buy for your XJ. I put it together by myself and got it on the XJ by myself. Super strong, lots of add-on options! Sits low, no wind noise, looks great, ETC ETC. Would I buy it again? HELL YA...My only complaint is the price, its over 200 more than a JL rack that is nearly the same.. I paid $819.00 (w/cutout) then it went down 85 dollars within 2 days!! Overall, happy...

The title says it all. Design, looks, strength, quality, functionality, you name it and this rack exceeds expectations. It is even quiet when driving down the highway. High quality and made in the U.S.A. I will definitely purchase from JCROffroad in the future.

I should probably save most of my comments for the Adventure Imports Blog Article, but....finally, FINALLY someone is building equipment as beautiful as XJ's themselves! This rack goes together super easy, looks sleek and is quiet with the windows down at highway speeds! My fatass walked around on it so I know it's a strong rack! ;) Great work fellas!

Still waiting on a roof tent for mine, but I hear great things. There is zero wind noise or drag, my MPG has stayed the same. Fits amazon 42" rigid horse light bar perfectly. No light hits the hood at all. Same price as most "basket" style racks, just as strong but none of the drawbacks. Personally I think this rack looks better than basket racks on XJ's. Took about 2 hours to install. Overall great product.
Nick (Maryland) | June 2nd, 2020
This rack is awesome. I've had it on for a couple months and its the quietest on road rack I've ever had on a Jeep. It supports my roof top tent no problem and the T-rail crossbars are a great, flexible system to keep everything tied down. Its light aluminum construction means you won't even notice it driving around, and its so low profile that I can still get in to my garage. Thank you JCR for finally bringing a "Toyota Grade" roof rack to us poor XJ folks. This rack looks and performs like something twice the price.

Roof rack went together perfectly and looks great! I mounted my rooftop tent to it and already spent one night with my wife and son in it and it was solid. I would definitely recommend.

Light bar cutout is perfect! My light bar doesn’t shine on my hood anymore. Looks great.
