Would I be able to transport a kayak on this? Most kayaks seem to be compatible (with the right straps) with standard vehicle roof racks, would this be close enough to safely transport a kayak?

deltafool117

  • Hello, the Surco Safari Removable Hard Top Rack w/ Basket (07-17 Wrangler JK) should work just fine with kayaks on the roof as long as you don't exceed the 150lbs weight capacity.

Could I use this rack to transport paddle boards? Im not worried about the weight. Its the wind resistance on the boards. I dont want the rack to be ripped off.

    Looks ok - easy to fit and very quick to remove if required. BUT less than the stated number of stainless bolts and nylon nuts in the pack. Cost about $10 plus a couple of hours to get the required number.

    Good looking Roof rack that's easy to put together and install on your jeep. The only thing is you should buy the extra floor panels.

    Surco Safari Rack - a viable storage solution for your Jeep!

    The Pros: No drilling, or modifications to the hardtop, or the Jeep itself. Plenty of additional cargo space (short people better pack a step stool though.) Made in USA The Safari Basket assembly is pretty straightforward – just pay close attention to the directions. Seems VERY durable - I've successfully "branch tested" it on numerous jaunts through the Ozark & Ouachita National Forests. If there's a low hanging limb - I always seem to find it. The basket remains undamaged, and securely mounted. The Cons: On our 2 Door anyway, mounting/aligning it took a bit longer than I thought it would. It took a lot of effort to get the front brackets to seat deeply enough in the rain gutter/lip of the Freedom Top panels to get them lined up correctly. Maybe the gutters on the JKU Hardtop are slightly different? We got it on, it just seem to take a lot more effort than it should have. It sits up several inches higher than it needs to, unless the goal was to have the flat of the hardtop used for flat storage under the basket. That actually works, btw - I've hauled plywood (placing a mover's blanket on the paint job), then tying the wood to the light bar brackets in the front & to the basket in the back. See the branch testing note above. Surco really could've redesigned the mounts to bring the basket down a good 3-4 inches. Wind Noise... Wranglers are not aerodynamic to begin with, and placing metal bars, trays or cages on top of them results in all manner of wind noise, buffeting, etc. I was already dealing with the noise for the giant light bar mounted right in the path of air coming over the top of the windscreen, so this isn't a biggie for me. You just get used to turning the volume on the stereo up louder. A fairing/wind deflector on the front would help immensely with wind noise (and even boost MPG) – it doesn’t look like Surco has one available – I may either adapt a Yakima one, or make my own. In summary, the basket design bolts together solidly, does no permanent damage or modification to the Jeep, and gives you much needed cargo space. It may not be something you’d want or need on a daily basis – but combined with a big cargo bag, it’s a great way to make your Jeep Wrangler capable of hauling all your gear for long trips.

    works well for mounting extra gear.

    Went together well and mounted on my jeep without drilling holes. I've mounted a jack to it and a fly rod storage case for three fly rods. The one down side to this rack is it's lack of floor cross beams as items placed in will fall through. To help support cargo to be tied down an extra cross beam to make four total would be a big help.

    More than a rack!

    The rack was received quickly and installs quite easily. Just have a garage stall or area to lay out the pieces and assemble. I easily lifted it on with one other person, and it was simple to attach. Once on, it of course can haul your off-road gear, beach stuff, or luggage to the airport. Added Benefit - I decorated it for christmas with lights and all! Got a lot of great looks and comments in the drive-throughs. Word of caution - if you have any lift on your Wrangler - watch your garage height when pulling back in for the first time :-)

    Great Rack!

    Love this rack. It took around 2-3 hrs to put together, mainly because I added the optional floor kit which I recommend. You need two people to lift it up unless you have a roof pulley lift system which I also recommend. Only issue is that it interfered with my satellite radio reception as it sits over the antenna. I relocated the antenna after getting a new one from the dealer and a new antenna cable. I left the old one in place and attached the new cable and put the antenna just under the passenger freedom panel at the top of the windshield. It took about 30 minutes to do.

    GREAT RACK

    I am very happy with this item, It was very easy to assemble, and the fit is fantastic. As you can see from the photos, I did a real test the first day, moving plastic boxes from California to Arizona. Even had the front tops off for the drive, and there isn't any wind noise. It is better than I expected, and I would highly suggest it if you are looking for a removable rack.

    Good price, easy install

    I just wish it came with a couple more floor boards. That would have made a great deal of difference. I know I can order more if I want, but just having 2 more would have made loading smaller items like wood or my gas grill a little easier. The installation was a little annoying because some of the mounting rubbers kept getting bunched up but it didn't add much time to the install. Very easy install. Centering it properly on the roof probably took just as long. Other than that, the rack does what it's supposed to do! Still waiting on replacement rubbers for the mounting hardware. Mine flew off somewhere along the road.

    Easy to install no drilling.

    I purchased this rack without the basket which is perfect for two kayaks. No drilling, easy installation and unlike some other "Roof Racks" it doesn't look a piece of playground equipment is trying to eat your jeep, rolling down the road. If however, you use it without the basket you will need to wrap tape around the forward cross bar to prevent a siren loud scream at hwy speed.

    Nice Rack

    Very impressed with the quality and fitment and I like that it is made in the USA. The only cons are that the instructions were terrible and the rack needs a wind deflector for the front, makes a lot of wind noise.
