      Video Review & Installation

      Hi, guys. So, today, we're checking out the Barricade HD Roof Rack, fitting all 2018 and newer 4-Door JL Wranglers. So, if you're looking to maximize the storage space for your Jeep, a roof rack is always a great place to start, and this option by Barricade is going to be a great choice to take a look into. Now, this is going to be for the Jeep owners who are looking for a roof rack that's able to carry some heavier items and have a higher load capacity while also being able to carry some larger items, considering that this is going to span the entire length of the Jeep, offering you a lot of surface area to really mount up whatever you'd like. Now, this is gonna be incredibly strong, made of a steel material. It's going to have steel tubing mounted up to the front A-pillar, which is a very strong mounting point, and on the back tub, which is also a good mounting point for a roof rack. So, this is going to be able to carry up to 350 pounds, which is a very high-load capacity for a roof rack like this. Now, that is going to allow you to really mount up whatever you'd like on top of this roof rack. So, if you're looking to mount up a rooftop tent or any larger cargo or even heavier cargo to take out on camping trips, to take on the trail, or even for a family vacation, this is definitely a roof rack that's able to do that. Now, this also has a nice textured black powder-coat finish on top, which is going to give it a more off-road and more aggressive look to the roof rack itself, and, of course, match with any other heavy-duty accessories that you already have on your Jeep.Now, the thing that I do really like about this roof rack, in general, is not only the fact that this is gonna come with multiple crossbars with multiple mounting points that you can customize to your setup or whatever you're looking to mount up, but this also comes with multiple mounting points and multiple brackets included in this kit to mount up accessory lighting. Now you're going to have a couple of options right here on the A-pillar on either side and both on the front and the rear crossbar. So, you can really kind of customize this to your personal preference, especially when it comes to not only mounting up the cargo that you're looking to take with you on your trips, but when it comes to accessory lighting and better visibility on the trail and on the street.Now, with that being said, this is going to come in at roughly $700. So, this is going to be a more pricey option than some of the other choices on the page, but that is for very good reason. Now, some other roof rack solutions usually include a crossbar design or they'll include a basket design. Now, those are going to be great for any smaller items if you're looking to do that, however, they're not going to have a high-load capacity like this choice will. Now, when it comes to other body-mounted designs, usually, they're just going to kind of switch it up as far as some of the construction goes, so they may have more crossbars in this instead of four or they may be mounted a little bit differently instead of on the back tub there, and maybe a little bit lower of a mounting point possibly on the frame or in the side of the body, which will require modification. Now, with this, there's no modification or drilling or really anything required. This is a bolt-on setup making it incredibly easy and straightforward. And, of course, it's going to allow you to mount up those items that you're looking to take with you on your trip.Now, with that being said, install is going to be two out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. And the only reason why I give it a two is because it is a little bit lengthy of an install. There is a lot going on. Obviously, this is going to cover the whole top of the Jeep, but it's nothing that you can't get done in about two hours with some very basic hand tools. So, speaking of that install, let's jump into that now.The tools that I used for my install were a dead blow, a soft pry tool, a trim removal tool, a punch, a 3/8-inch drive ratchet, a 17-millimeter, 13-millimeter, and 3/8-inch wrench, the provided Allen key, a 16, 15, and 13-millimeter socket, 6-millimeter Allen socket, a T50 and T40 Torx socket, and a knife, and an impact wrench.So, our first step to this install is to remove our wipers as well as our wiper panel here. We need to make sure that we're able to get underneath our cowl so we can add the front part of our roof rack. So, first, I'm going to take a trim removal tool or a panel removal tool. We're just going to pop off this cover to expose that bolt. Then we can take a 15-millimeter socket and we can remove this windshield wiper. Now, we can do the same thing for the other side. Now that both of our wiper arms are off, what we can do is take off this plastic panel. So, I'm just going to take that same pry tool, and we can just pull up on the cowl. This is just going to be held in by a couple of clips. We can kind of unhook it from that wiper mount. We can just put this to the side for right now. What we can do next is take off our antenna here. I'm just using a 3/8-inch wrench. Can also use a 10-millimeter wrench. Just going to get this out of the way so we can take off our cowl. So, now, we can use a T40 Torx socket and remove our cowl. Slide that out, put this to the side, and repeat that on the other side.Next, we going to open up the hood because we still have to pull off a couple of clips for that top cowl. So, we need to access this bolt up here. So, in order to do that, we need to remove the clips on the inside of our cowl here. Now, it's going to be right behind this foam. I'm going to use a flat-head screwdriver because it's a little bit easier to get into this tighter space with a flat-head. We can just pull up on that clip. So, what we need to do at this point is remove the plastic clips in the front behind this seal. I'm going to use a clip removal tool or a trim removal tool in order to do this. So, I'm just gonna pull the seal out of the way just to give myself a little bit of extra room to get these out. And there's going to be three more on the other side. We can just put our seal kind of back into place, and what we can do is close up her hood.So, now that we have all of the hardware taken out, what we need to do is pop a couple of these pop clips out of place. They're underneath the cowl up over at the top here. We just need to make sure that this corner is unhooked from our hinge and we can pull this forward so we can access this bolt underneath. So, what I'm going to do is kind of pry on where this is. You can see where it is underneath or you can feel around, it's right on the inside here, and I'm going to pry with two pry tools. These clips, if they haven't been undone yet, are pretty stubborn coming out. Once that's out of place, what we can do is start wiggle this forward. And then at this point, what we should be able to do is just pop the existing clips out now that we have both sides undone from the windshield hinge. So, once that's out of the way, we'll be able to access this bolt, and then we can mount up our front portion of our roof rack.Next, we can use a 13-millimeter socket to remove this outer bolt on the windshield hinge. Then making sure that the padding is installed on the roof rack portion for the front, what we can do is line this up where our cowl used to sit, we can grab our bolt that we just removed, and we can bolt this up into place. Once it's threaded in, we can tighten it up. Then we can repeat that process on the driver side as well. Then, we can pop our cowl back into place. So, we're just gonna tuck it underneath. We need to pop our hood so we can finagle it underneath our windshield hinges. Can give a good press at the top where those clips need to be pushed back in. Once that's set, what we can do is grab those clips for underneath. We can carefully lay our hood back, and we can reinstall these clips on the front. So, if you did take the seal off I'd recommend to pop that back into place. Then once that's back in place, we can close up our hood. We can reinstall that plastic piece up top and our windshield wipers. We can tighten up the bolt on our windshield wipers with a 15-millimeter socket. Pop the cap back on, and do the same thing on the other side.So, now, we can install this inner section of the front part of our roof rack. There's going to be a mount, you can face it forward or backwards. It is universal. This is for accessory lighting. So, if you do have accessory lighting that you are looking to mount up, you can face this forward or backwards, however you want to do it. Then we can go ahead and slip it into either side of the front part of our rack. So, you may have to loosen up one of the sides. What you can do is just pull up the corner of the cowl since we did not secure it, and you can squeeze in a 13-millimeter ratcheting wrench. Before we had to remove the whole cowl because we had to remove the whole bolt, but if you need a little bit more wiggle room, you can grab that 13-millimeter wrench, and that should give you some more room to work with. So, now that we have this top piece installed, we need to make sure that it's rotated correctly, and then we can go back and make sure that everything is secured in place.So, after we have our top crossbar in what we're going to do is secure each of the cowls. We're going to use our factory hardware. So, our shorter bolts are going to go in on the side. You may have to kind of lift up the rack in order to get the one on the back and installed because that bar is going to want to push it down. I'm just using that T40 Torx that we originally used to take them out. We can install the ones up at the top. Tighten them up with our T40 Torx.What we can do at this point is take our provided hardware and secure this crossbar to our A-pillar mount. So, it's gonna be the Allen head bolt, two flat washers, and a nylon lock nut. And I'm going to use a 6-millimeter Allen socket and a 17-millimeter wrench to tighten that up. We can repeat that on the other side.So, what we can do at this point is take our protective tubing for our antenna so it doesn't hit on our roof rack here. Don't want any metal on metal contact. We can slip this through, and we can tighten this up. Now, this is just going to be a pad so the bar on our rack and our antenna are not making any contact. Then we can take our 3/8-inch wrench and tighten that up.So, what we're going to do at this point is take off our hard top. We do need to secure a bracket in the back. So, we're going to start with our freedom panels and then we can remove the back portion of our hard top. What we can do at this point is remove the hardware for our hard top. There's going to be two bolts up at the top here, on the top of our roll bar, and then there's going to be three on either side in the back. I'm going to use a T50 Torx socket in order to remove those. So, after all three are moved on this side, you also want to make sure that your wiring harness is unplugged and the same with your windshield wiper fluid, and then you can repeat taking out the bolts, the three bolts, on the other side.So, what we can do now is install our corner bracket. We need to lift up this seal as well. So, I'm going to use a trim removal tool and just pull up on that clip there. Then we can take our provided bracket, making sure that there is a seal on the top and the bottom. This is going to prevent any metal on metal contact. Then we can place this down, grab our provided bolts, and thread those into the threaded holes in the body. Then we can take our provided Allen key, and tighten those up. Then we can repeat that process on the other side.So, what we can do next is grab our spacer and we can put one on both front mounting points, and this is kind of just going to fill that gap that we created with that bracket. Then we can take our factory hardware and we can thread that in, and secure it down. We can take our T50 Torx, and tighten that up. Then while we're over on this side, we can plug our wiring harness and our windshield wiper fluid back in, our rear glass, then we can repeat that on the other side. Then we can secure the front of the hard top. Then we can reinstall our freedom panels. Next, we can install the seal on our tailgate. This is going to make sure that since we elevated the hard top, that the rear glass seals to the tailgate itself. So, if you need to trim a little bit off, you can. And now, we can install part of our frame so we can connect it to the back. So, making sure that the holes in the side support bar are facing up, what we can do is take this and line it up with the front, and we can actually rest that on the drip rail for a second while we grab our back piece. What we can do next is line up our back piece and we can raise this to line it up with our bracket. And once that's aligned, we can take our provided bolt, it's going to be a bolt, flat washer, and lock washer. We can thread that into the bottom of this back portion. We can do the same thing for the other side. Let that rest on the drip rail. Next, we can install our rear bar. We can let that rest on the hard top. So, what we can do at this point is attach these two pieces. Going to align these both up at the same time, then we can secure this bottom bracket down as well, just like we did on the other side. Next, we can take a 16-millimeter socket, making sure that that is centered, and we can tighten these two back mounts up.So, what we can do now is start securing all of our sections together. So, we're gonna take the same bolts that we did for the front crossmember and gonna go ahead and put those through. So, if it's not lining up right away, what you can do is just take punch or you could use an extension, you can put it in the hole and kind of twist, and that'll allow it to line up. Then we can secure this down and tighten that up with the 6-millimeter Allen and the 17-millimeter wrench. Then we can repeat that for all of the other sections. What we can do now is install our crossbar. So, I'm just going to lay them all up on top. We're gonna have four included in the kit, and then we can reposition them, figure out where we want to put them, then we can secure them down. So, at this point, what we can do is grab our crossbars and line them up with the holes where we want them to sit. So, it kind of comes down to personal preference on where you want them to sit. Next, we can take the provided knob, flat washer, and the other flat washer, nylon lock nut. We can secure that down. And do the same thing for all four crossbars. Then we can just repeat that process on this side. Now, if it does not want to sit flat, what you can do is kind of just pull on this main bar here. And if you can get one of them attached, I attached one of them, it'll kind of push the bar out so you can fit the other crossbars here. Now, after we have all of our crossbars installed, what we're going to do is tighten them up to make sure that they're secure against the side portion here. I'm going to use a 13-millimeter ratcheting wrench, and we can just hold the knob up on top. Then we can repeat that on the other side.So, that is going to wrap it up for my review and install.
