Hey, guys, so today I'm here with the Barricade Removable Roof Rack Basket fitting all 2018 and up four-door JL Wranglers with the OEM Hard Top. So as jeep owners we already know that interior storage space is definitely limited so carrying all that extra cargo outside of our Wrangler is a perfect solution. This option by Barricade is gonna be perfect for the JL owners who are going on long camping trips, they're going overlanding, and they wanted to carry all that extra cargo but they don't want to put it inside of their Wrangler. This is gonna be very durable, made of aluminum material but it's also gonna be able to hold up to 150 pounds.Now, speaking of that aluminum build, this is also gonna be very lightweight and perfectly removable as it says in the name. So this is gonna be very easy to remove, very easy to install, and you're only gonna need a couple of basic hand tools to do the trick. Now, with function also comes form. I do like how this sits, it looks a lot different than a lot of our other options on our page, and it also has that satin black powder coat finish on it to give it a very sleek look and always to protect that aluminum underneath from any corrosion.So this will be roughly $550 and I personally think for what comes in this package that it's definitely gonna be worth the money. Now, there are all different styles and kinds of roof racks from down to the bare minimum crossbars all the way up to those big and bulky roof racks. I definitely think that this hits a sweet spot. It gives you form as well as function. You do get that large option where you do get a large basket with a bunch of tie down points, but you're still getting something that looks very sleek mounted up to the top of your Wrangler and I definitely like that and I think that that's a big takeaway from this piece.Now, install is gonna be a very easy one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, should only take you two hours to get everything bolted up in your driveway and you do have to remember that that is not just putting on and taking off your roof rack, that is building everything. So once you already have this built up and altogether, it's gonna be very easy to pop it on and take it off whenever you need to. So speaking of the install let's jump in to that now.The tools that I used for my install were a quarter-inch drive ratchet, the provided Allen keys, 13-millimeter and 10-millimeter wrench, and a 10-millimeter deep socket, as well as a 13-millimeter deep socket. So before we can install our roof rack we do have to put it together so I would recommend to get all of your hardware in order because there is gonna be a lot and then we can go ahead and put our outside frame together and then work on our crossbars. So these four pieces are not gonna be side-specific but we are going to install the front or the rear piece inside of our side piece. You're gonna take your provided hardware and then we can attach the two flat washers, the lock washer, and the nut. There's gonna be one on top and then two on the side. And this is gonna be the provided button-head bolts, the provided hex bolts will be for connecting all of the brackets. So connecting the frame and the crossbar is going to consist of all of the button-head bolts, then for the brackets we are gonna use the hex bolts. After all of those are on there we can take our provided Allen key as well as the 13-millimeter socket and tighten those down. Now, we can flip this around and do the same thing on the other side. So because the front and rear crossbars are installed inside our side bars here, I would recommend to install them both in one of the side bars first so you can get the other one on. So we're just gonna do the same process on this side. Now, we can install our second side bar.What we can do now is install our crossbars. On the bottom of each of your crossbars, you will have rivnuts inserted in there, so what we can do is go ahead and place those inside. You are going to get three of those. And what I do like about these is that it has a little ribbed surface here so your stuff won't be sliding around and it's gonna give it a little bit of extra traction when you mount up your extra cargo on your roof rack. So once those are lined up and in place we can grab our provided hardware, this is going to be the button-head bolts, the lock washer, as well as our flat washer, we can go ahead and install those.So I did flip the roof rack over so you could get a little bit of the better view on what's going on on the underside of our crossbars. Now, like I said there are rivnuts under here, there are also larger holes under here in order to install them through our side rack. So we are going to take the provided hardware and go ahead and thread that in. So once those are threaded in we can take our provided Allen key, go ahead and tighten those down. Then we can do the same thing for the other two crossbars. Now, it won't matter which is the front or the rear but we are gonna determine that this is the front, so we're gonna grab our front crossbar, we're going to line this up with the two holes here and then we are gonna take our longer provided bolt, go ahead and install this through the bottom there. Then you're gonna need your flat washer, lock washer, and nylon lock nut. You're gonna go ahead and secure that down. Now before we go ahead and tighten that down, we're just going to make sure that this one is lining up, so we're just going to stick that in there for the time being, then we can grab a 13-millimeter wrench and 13-millimeter socket and tighten down that bolt. Now, we can do the same thing on the other side.Now, we can install our faceplate, this is gonna help out with some wind noise to make sure that your roof rack is not whistling while it's on top of your Wrangler and it also has a little Barricade branding for some extra styling. So you will have the provided hardware, this already has a flat washer and lock washer already installed on it. So we can go ahead and line that up the best we can and secure that down. Now, we can take our smaller provided Allen key and a 10-millimeter deep socket and a quarter-inch drive ratchet and go ahead and tighten these down.So what we're gonna do next is install our rear brackets. So these are actually going to be sandwiched in between our rear glass as well as our hard top. Now, we're not gonna remove the actual bracket that's holding our rear glass, we're just going to loosen up those bolts and slide our bracket in between. So you're gonna need a 10-millimeter socket as well as a ratchet in order to do that and we can start by loosening up these bolts. So once they're loose we can pop our bracket down in and behind, right, and then once that is sitting there we could tighten up those bolts. We can do the same thing on the other side.So in order to attach our rear bracket to our roof rack we do need a secondary bracket. This is gonna bolt up right there and our roof rack is going to sit on top there. So we are just going to take our provided hardware, this is going to be the hex head bolt and two flat washers as well as a nylon lock nut, we're gonna go ahead and install that here. This will be able to adjust up and down so we're gonna snug them up, we're gonna leave them a little bit loose though so once we get our roof rack on we can go ahead and adjust everything. So we're gonna go ahead and snug that up with a 13-millimeter socket and 13-millimeter wrench.So what we're gonna do now is assemble our front brackets. You are going to have two pieces that create a clamp that's gonna clamp on the rain gutter that is on your hard top. So we are just going to take this, going to stick that bracket or stick the stud up through that hole and as you can tell this is going to clamp onto your rain gutter and then you'll have the bolt holes up top that are going to bolt into that front crossbar there. So you will need a flat washer and a nylon lock nut, then we can take the provided combo bolts and thread those into the welded nut on the back of our secondary bracket. And then what we can do as well, flip this over, we do have some gaskets here. This is some rubber that we can put on the bottom of here and this is gonna act as a clamp and it's not going to hurt our hard top when we clamp this down. We'll also have a foam piece that we can stick up top here and this is gonna protect our hard top as well. Now, I'm gonna tighten these down with a 13-millimeter socket. So we're not gonna tighten them down all the way we're just gonna snug them up so we can adjust in the future. And then we can install our second bracket. So now that we have this together, we can put this on our gutter here. So that is just going to sit in place. Now, we're gonna leave it loose just for now because we do have to line it up with our roof rack so we can do the same thing on the other side. So what we can do now is grab a friend and we can go ahead and install our rack on our Wrangler.So now we can secure our basket down to our brackets using our provided hex bolts as well as the two flat washers and nylon lock nut. All right, so now we're gonna take a 13-millimeter wrench and a 13-millimeter socket and tighten down our bolts. And we can do the same thing all around. So after our basket is tightly secured down to our clamps we can go back and tighten down our clamps. So I'm gonna start by raising this one up, I'm using a 13-millimeter socket, this is going to bring it upward and clamp to our gutter here. And then we can take our 13-millimeter socket again and tighten down this combo bolts and that's gonna bring our bracket in.Now, this is also easily removable, all you have to do is reverse that process, take these out, loosen this up and you'll be able to pop this off whenever you want. Now, we're gonna go back to our rear brackets, so just make sure those are snugged up. So now we did leave these loose because we did want to make sure that this was adjusted properly, so we're just gonna go ahead and tighten those down with that same 13-millimeter socket and 13-millimeter wrench. And then we can repeat that process on the other side and once everything is tightened down then you're all set to go.So that's gonna wrap it up, guys, for my review and install.

Not to difficult to build and install
After sorting the bolts and screws as needed since the bags come unlabeled. This was a pretty easy build and install. If your short like me you'll definitely need some help when placing it on the roof in order to line everything up. Only issues I had were the unlabeled bags and the fact that it rusting from one of the bolts but I haven't figured out which one it is.Helpful (2)

This rack is great for the JL. Was a little difficult to get the rear support plates to slide behind the rear windshield hinges but other than that was a fairly easy install and have had no issues. Great for putting misc things like chairs, tents, gas tanks... up top.Helpful (4)

READ FIRST - Missing Hardware - Damaged Cross Rail
By the title you may think that I want to just write a bad review for this rack. The rack arrived in good condition except for 2 issues. 1. Missing 2 nuts required for installing the light bar 2. A nut on one of the cross rails was protruding and was not seated correctly. I installed the rack to include the damaged cross rail. It seemed to fit okay and it survived a 400 mile round trip with a full load. I figured I would just call Extreme Terrain up and have them send me the missing nuts and a replacement cross rail. Boy was I wrong. Extreme Terrain promptly told me that I assume all responsibility for products that I installed and that they are not liable for any damage after the fact. The rep pointed me to their policy page and said that they would only send me the missing nuts. So, lesson learned.Helpful (3)

Very nice addition
My son and I had no trouble installing this in an afternoon. Directions made sense and didn't confuse. We have loaded it down and rolled cross country with no issues. It does have some noise when empty and rolling at highway speeds... but that is expected.Helpful (3)

Adequate, but inelegant solution for light use.
I got tired of waiting for the perfect rack for my JL to come out and got this to help with camping this summer. It's far from perfect, but was so much less expensive than alternatives, I can replace it in a few years when there's more options. I installed it last week, and have driven several hours with it at highway speed. Pros: - Does not interfere with open Sunrider - No whistling, nor notable increase in wind noise - Half the cost of the next complete solution (towers, cross rails, basket, fairing) Cons: - Front brackets look like a first draft. IMO, an ugly solution compared to other brands. The overall look of the rack is "functional". - Stamped aluminum has some burrs and rough edges. Not a massive problem, but have to be aware if you grab it or wrap soft rope through it. - Cross bars are pretty far apart, so I'll need to figure somethig out before throwing bundles of firewood up there. - Careful installation leaves 1/4" gap between support pad and roof. I wrote to Extreme Terrain 4 days ago but have not heard back. Specifications online are scarce, so here you go: - 46.5"W x 45"L minimum internal dimensions. Design would allow for flat items up to 51" long, or 50" wide to slide inside supports - 9-10" space between slats. Slats are 3" on top, 4" on bottom. - 3" high. 82" from ground on '18 JLUR w/stock wheels, tires no lift. - 48" highlift will technicall fit, but would be a massive hassle to get in and out. Conclusion: I got this specifically to stow light, bulky items like tents, sleeping bags etc. I already used it to transport my kids bike when I was too rushed to mount the hitch rack. It does what I intended, and is quieter and sturdier than I expected. Hopefully I get used to the looks soon enough and ET will help resolve the gap issue. Installation note: I was very glad to have a neighbor help lift it up onto the roof. I usually manage installations solo, but there's a high chance of scratching or cracking something were you to lift this heavy, awkward thing alone.Helpful (13)

The unit seems well-built easy to install took about an hourHelpful (7)
What is the total height from the roof to the highest point on the rack? It has to fit in my garage. 2018 JL 4 door. Thanks Ron D
Although we do not have an exact height addition, I would anticipate a 6" height adjustment to the top of the rack from your top.
What is the effect of the rear window hinge/bracket being moved out?
how much does the rack weigh
This rack weights 58lbs
Any particular reason why this doesn't fit a 2 Door JL? What is the measurement of the basket itself?
The two door is a shorter vehicle compared to the four door version, and this is designed to fit on the longer of the two Jeeps.
Can a roof rack ladder be attached to this rack to the back of the Jeep? I have an OEM top. Thanks!
We do not have one that is designed to fit with this rack, and one would have to be custom made or modified. While you probably could do this, please keep in mind that this rack is only designed to hold up to 150 pounds. If you have a person on a ladder connected to it, this could put added pressure on the rack, possibly damaging your hard top.
This does not fit 2-door models.
This is not compatible with the power sliding hard top.
We have not received any negative feedback regarding noise with this rack.
This will not affect removal of the freedom panels.
Yes, this will fit all 18-19 JL models with the OEM hardtop.
The Barricade Removable Hard Top Roof Basket for OEM Hard Top will not be compatible with a roof top tent. A full roof rack would be the best option to install a roof top tent on your Jeep.
