    Review & Install Video

    I'm Ryan from extremeterrain.com and this is my review and installation of the Garvin Adventure Rack fitting your 2-door 2007 and up JK. Today, we're gonna talk through the installation of this rack which is a very simple one out of three wrenches because this is designed to bolt directly on to your Jeep without any major modifications. So if you decide to tackle this job on your own, you can get this done in your driveway in about two hours, but we'll talk a little bit more about the install in just a minute. We're also gonna talk through the construction and a few of the features of this rack. Even though the newer JKs do have some more space inside of them than the older TJs did, if you are somebody who needs to haul a bunch of gear, chances are you don't have room inside your JK, so a roof rack could be a really nice option. Now, I don't recommend a roof rack for those of you who do some really hard core off-roading and get yourself into a lot of off-camber situations. Having the additional weight up on top of the vehicle can make you a little bit top heavy and can raise your center of gravity which isn't a good thing. However, if you do more of an overland style of off-roading, or you stay on the road, or you're just trying to haul some gear to the camp site for the weekend, a roof rack can be a really nice solution. Now, there are some very inexpensive roof racks out there on the market but those ones aren't going to hold up quite as well to rust and corrosion because of the coating. They're probably going to make some rattling noises when you're driving down the road or certainly when you're hitting the trail. That's not what you're going to get with a rack from Garvin. This is a really high-quality roof rack and not only is it built really well and going to hold up really well and be very quiet, it's also going to look really good. It's very sleek in its design. Some of the less expensive racks on the market do look a little bit boxier, in my opinion, and aren't quite as sleek. So while you are going to spend a little bit more money for a Garvin rack, you are getting something that's gonna hold up well over time, it's gonna be quiet, and it looks good. As far as the construction goes, this is a steel tubular roof rack that's covered in a textured black powder coat finish. Again, this finish is going to hold up really well to rust and corrosion. And the way that this thing is designed and built, it is going to be nice and quiet and rattle-free as long as you follow all of the instructions when you're installing it. This can hold up to 300 pounds and it is a little bit different than, say, the Garvin Adventure Rack which is a more expensive rack. The Adventure rack essentially has a built-in basket that covers the entire roof area of the Jeep. This is a much more simple rack that just has a couple of bars on it. However, you can get a basket or any number of other accessories so that you can strap down whatever type of gear you are trying to haul. One of the other nice features about this rack is that it does tilt back allowing you to lower and raise your soft top without completely removing the roof rack. So this is hinged in the back making it very easy for you to tilt it and actually your soft top without having to completely remove the roof rack. As I mentioned before, the installation of this rack is a very simple one out of three wrenches, and you can probably get this done in right around two hours. As with most other roof racks on the market this is going to attach to the windshield hinges in the front and has some brackets on your rear frame rails that come up, and that's where your pivot point is going to be for the rear of the rack. Once you have the mounts on the front and the mounts on the frame on the rear, it's a simple matter of attaching the hoops and the crossbars that run front to back on your Jeep. This is going to be a very simple rack to install but you are going to wanna follow the instructions that are included to make sure that you're getting everything bolted in place exactly where it goes, and make sure everything is nice and tight so you're not going to have any rattles. You're not going to need any specialty tools to get this job done, just your traditional hand tools and, again, about two hours of time. As I mentioned before, this rack is going to be a little bit less expensive than the Garvin Expedition Rack just because it is a simpler rack, there isn't quite as much here. However, this is going to be more expensive than some of the other racks on the market. There are Barricade roof racks out there that are certainly less expensive than this one is, but this is a very high-quality rack. It's a very well-built rack, and as we said before, it's very low profile and it is a sleek-looking rack. So it really comes down to what you're looking for on your Jeep. I think that this is absolutely worth the price you have to pay for it. However, if you're not somebody who's going to be running a roof rack year round, you're not as worried about the rattles, you don't live in an area where you have a lot of salt so you're not worried about corrosion, then yeah, you can probably go with one of those less expensive racks and save yourself a little bit of money. But, if you're looking for a really high-quality rack that's gonna look sleek, hold up well, and be noise-free, I think this one is worth the price. So if you're looking to add a little bit of additional cargo space to your two-door JK, a roof rack like this one is a really nice option. This is going to give you the ability to carry up to 300 pounds of gear on the roof of the Jeep, it's going to be a really sleek-looking rack that will hold up really well over time and is really easy to install. So that's my review of the Garvin Adventure Rack, fitting all 2007 and up JKs that you can find right here at extremeterrain.com.

    Storage Construction. The Adventure Rack from Garvin is one of the most versatile racks on the market. It's the perfect choice if you need to mount a large item like a canoe or kayak, or simply bring home a piece of plywood from your local hardware store. It can carry up to 300 pounds.

    Storage Specs. This Adventure Rack can be outfitted with a number of optional accessories, which can be as simple as helping you carry a shovel and axe, or turn it into a full on, off-road machine. This rack mounts right to the front windshield and the bottom back quarter panel. All installation hardware is included and no drilling is required. You can also tilt the rack back to lower or raise your Jeep's soft-top.

    Application. This Adventure Rack works with 2007-2018 Wrangler JK 4-door models. Installation hardware is included and is as simple as bolting the rack on.

    First of all, why are the first two photos of a 4-door when this product is for a 2-door? Also, if this product claims to not require any drilling, then why does the second photo show many drilled bolts into the rear of the Jeep's body and bumper for the rack? My Jeep is stock and doesn't have any factory bolts back there.

    • We have not yet installed the Garvin Adventure Rack on any of our jeeps for photos, so the pictures are those provided by the manufacturer still. This will not require any drilling, full installation instructions can be seen at the link below. https://lib.extremeterrain.com/guides/J25112-cust.pdf

    I see that this rack can be tilted back for soft top removal. Would it also allow for hard top removal? I'm having a bit of a hard time finding one that will allow for that. At some point I want to get the soft top but I don't have one yet and am in need of a rack for my kayak. Thanks!!

    • Hello, the Garvin Adventure Rack (07-17 Wrangler JK 4 Door) is only designed to be tilted back for lowering of the soft top. You can remove the side rails fairly easy to gain access to remove the hard top.

      Sturdy rack

      I was looking for a solid rack to support two kayaks on long journeys as we tow behind our RV. This rack fits the bill. Easy install with clear directions, not cutting or unjust in game. The only slight issue is the night off the Jeep was a little more than my wife was hoping for appearance. Other than that is all good.

      Great rack and easy to install

      Great looking and sturdy rack. Well worth the price. Assembly went quickly after removing the bumper and spare tire. Was able to finish assembly in a few hours in between loads of laundry. The hardware is labeled well which helped things go together smoothly with no guessing. Have had it on for a week now and just snugged things up again with no squeaks. Quite a bit of wind noise around 45 mph so I will be adding a wind deflector. The ladder attachment has been useful too. Very happy with this purchase.

      Review from Garvin Adventure Rack (07-18 Wrangler JK 2 Door)

      Great Rack

      The install wasn't bad at all. I have the steel rear bumper with a hitch on my 75th anniversary so 4 more bolts than typical stock jeep bumpers and the bumper removal was the longest single part of the install (Still not hard). Did it by myself so two people not needed but it would have gone much faster. Once on it looks great and seems rock solid but will still need more time to break it in to give a better review. Pleased right now for sure. I wouldn't give it 5 stars on bang for the buck, only because after you pay for the rack, basket, and ladder it is no different than the Gobi. Definitely a lot more expensive than the Expedition rack when this one is touted to be cheaper.

      An excellent rack

      After installed, the rack is solid, attractive, and functional. The installation was easy enough with no modifications or modified parts needed. The hardest part of installing the rack was orientating the instructions to the jeep. Note: instructions call for black silicone on the rack joints for anti-noise and waterproofing. It would be nice if it were included, but it's not, so be sure to pick some up.

      Great looking product. Installed easily on my Anniversary Edition Rubicon allowing me to keep the bumper end caps on, which looks great! Installed in a few hours mostly because of the cold outside, so we took a few "warm up" breaks between steps.

      Garvin Adventure rack install

      Went to a shop and was told the install for this item would be $500 and it would take all day to do. So long story short.......I saved $500 and had the job done in less than 3 hrs.........and I'm a girl. I dislike when women are looked at as if we don't know what's going on. Anyway, I feel great about my purchase, love my roof rack, and feel proud I put it on myself. Fits both of my kayaks (with added kayak holder) and I just ordered a thule roof box. One thing I would recommend, and is my next purchase, is a wind deflector; does get rather noisy when the roof is off. This is a very solid and sturdy roof rack system, worth every penny and more.

      Garvin Adventure rack install

      After a certain shop wanted over $500 to install this I decided I'd show them that 2 girls could do the job just fine and I'd keep my $500. My cousin and I laid all the pieces out to make sure we had everything needed including tools. One morning we set out to get this done and except for needing "manly" help getting the bolts loosened from under the jeep (to release rear bumper) she and I did the whole project in under 3 hrs (and the shop said it would take all day, Hahaha). The unit is very solid and looks fantastic. I can carry my two kayaks with my extra kayak holders (purchased separately). I do recommend that you also get the deflectors for highway driving without the roof; rather noisy without it.

      Great rack for the price.

      This rack was easy to install. I was able to install it in about 3 hours, working solo in the driveway. Since the install I have heard only a slight increase in wind noise, and no rattling at all. I purchased this rack to primarily carry a kayak, and it does so very well. I also have found it to be really handy with all my hauling needs. I don't believe that you can beat this product with anything else in the same price range.

      Quality control

      Received the rack and proceeded to the installation. Which is overall straightforward if you have all the necessary hardware. My kit lacked the carriage bolts that secure the side and cross bars, which is the last step of the process. Without these bars in place the rear hinged support is not completely stable and thus I had the choice of not driving the Wragler or disassembling what was already in place. I contacted Garvin had was told they would express ship the bolts. A mix up occurred per Garvin and I received the parts 7 days later. That being said the rack is very sturdy functional and looks good. My advice, check your parts before you begin assembly.

      Solid Rack

      Incredibly well built, solid rack. I put an SUP and longboard on it soon after installation, and they were safe and secure at 70 MPH! It is also easy to put the soft top up and down with this rack, which was a huge plus for me. It took a little under 3 hours (for my mechanical engineer) friend to install.

      Above average.

      CONS: - It's like assembling Ikea furniture, lots of small parts and the instructions are basic. Roughly 5 hrs to install but I took my time and re-read instruction to get it right. - The pivot bolts often comes loose so had to tighten more than what was/is recommended. You'll need to loosen when putting top down and make sure they don't hit the tail lights - Put the soft top down twice and each time it's a two person job; one holds the rack, one does the top (was expecting the rack to sit/lean on the spare tire...not sure why though). Perhaps this may change as I get used to it and can do it myself. PROS: - No problems on the highway with my two white water kayaks - Not much additional noise (I have a soft top so that may cancel some things out). I feel there is no need for the wind deflector...just my opinion - Very sturdy, exceeded my expectations * I would recommend
