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.
