Merideth: If you're in search of a bed rack for your adventures that will provide a ton of accessory storage space and usable utility for your 2020 or newer JT Gladiator, this XRS Overland Xtreme Rack in Texture Black will be a great addition to your belt. Now, this is gonna be a great option for the avid Overlander or general trip taker who needs to maximize the storage space on their Gladiator for their accessories including, but, of course, not limited to a rooftop tent, road pack, recovery tools, off-road jacks, and more.Now, it will also be a great addition if you want a rack that's going to offer the ability to add features like a table or handles on the back, and also allowing you ample vertical space in the bed for that additional cargo. Now, this will feature a full bed rack design, meaning that it's going to meet the roof of the Jeep, and extend all the way back to the tailgate. This will also feature a ToughBuilt to be able to support any of that larger cargo on top with multiple four Quart crossbars that accept any 1/4-inch by 20 hardware. This is also gonna have a plethora of attachment space on the sides for accessories that are compatible with the standard MOLLE system.As you can see here, this is going to offer a ton of space over on the side. This, again, is also going to accommodate for that optional fold-down table design for the workable space or just stopping down on the trail for lunch and on the rear bars. Again, those are optional handles to either hang your recovery straps from or use it for accessibility to access the top of the rack. Now, again, I would like to mention that this is only gonna come with the rack and one accessory gear plate, but you can add on to this to customize to your personal preference.Now, this rack is gonna be strong, like I mentioned before, made of an aluminum and a steel construction, which will offer some weight savings in the meantime compared to other full steel choices. This will also feature a nice texture black powder coat finish to protect the metal underneath, and, of course, achieve more of an off-road aesthetic. Not to mention, this will work with or without the Mopar Bed Rail Track System, so you can keep some peace of mind there knowing that you don't necessarily have to remove the system if it's still working for you.When it comes to price, this is gonna come in at roughly $1,100, putting this at a pretty average price point for a full rack. Now, compared to other options, though, this is going to have that MOLLE style attachment system and specific optional attachments offering an abundance of ways to configure it. In addition to that, this is also going to incorporate the full rack design compared to other half racks or lower mounted systems, making this a great option if you need that additional vertical space inside the bed and you're looking for one that you can count on.When it comes to install, this is gonna come in at a 2/3-wrenches on the difficulty meter taking you roughly four hours to get the job done. So, at this point, we can head over to the shop and check out a detailed breakdown of the install process. That's gonna wrap it up for me. Let's go ahead and get into it.Man: Tools required for this install include an impact gun, a ratchet, a 15-millimeter wrench, a plastic pry tool, a little extension, an 11, 13, and 15-millimeter socket, and a 4-millimeter Allen bit. What's up, guys? Today, we're installing a bed rack on our Gladiator, so let's get started.So, our first step is to assemble our front-end rear hoop. Now, we have our bars laid out. We're gonna be using our 4-inch bolt with a lock washer and a flat washer. That's gonna go through the side with the logo on it. And then on the inside of here, up against this piece, we're gonna have two of our 2.25-inch washers. So, we can pick this up. We're gonna be sliding this piece inside of this one. And we can grab one of our washers and slide it in, and slide our bolt through, and then we'll slide our other side washer through. I've got a little pry tool here just to shove it down in there.And now once we get to this point, we can do the same thing with our other bar. So, our next step on the studs sticking out that we just installed, we're gonna be putting another one of our 2.25-inch flat washers followed by two of our 4-gauge spacers, and then one of our 16-gauge spacers. And we'll do that on each side. And then up next, we can install our tubes. Now, we have our threaded insert on the edge here.Right behind that, there's gonna be either one or two holes. The one hole is the top tubes and the two holes are the bottom. So, once we have all of our spacers installed, we can get that lined up and start threading that in. So now we have the piece that we just assembled as well as our other side. I've already got our 2.25-inch washer with our two 4-gauge spacers, and our 16-gauge spacer installed on each side, so now all we have to do is lift up on the tubes and then we can hand thread our nuts, or hand thread our bolts from this side into our tubes.Now, I'm just gonna grab a 15-millimeter socket just to twist our bolt. So now that we have all of our bars hand threaded into place, we can go ahead and tighten all of them down with a 15-millimeter socket. Now, you're gonna wanna make sure that the eight threaded holes are facing in, and the six threaded holes are facing out. And you want the ones facing in to be at a slightly upward angle.And then we'll do that same thing on the other side. So, our next step is to take our 1-inch long hex bolt with a flat washer. We're gonna be feeding them through the second hole here to line up with our tongue off of our main bar. And then same on the other side. And then we can run them in the rest of the way with a 15-millimeter socket. Now, on the other side, we're gonna be putting a lock washer and a nut. And then we can take a 15-millimeter socket and a 15-millimeter wrench to tighten these down.And then we can repeat that same step for the rest of our legs. Now, our next step is to begin installing our top bars. So, these are gonna lay right onto the threaded holes on either side. We're gonna be using our button head bolts with the captured lock washer and washer, so we can hand-thread those in. Now, if your holes aren't lining up, you can loosen those top bolts on all four corners to allow our tubes to spin so that you can adjust it properly. And then we'll just take a 4-millimeter Allen bit to tighten up these bolts.And then we can repeat that same process for our three remaining top bars. So, our next step is to install our feet. Now, we have a square edge that's gonna be pointed inbound towards the bed, and then we have an edge with a little slit cut out of it, that's gonna be facing outward. So, we can slide this in. We're gonna get another one of those 4-inch bolts with a washer. We can get that through the hole.Then on the other side, we're gonna do just like we did for the top with our 2.25-inch washer, two of our 4-gauge spacers, and one of our 16-gauge spacers. Slide that onto the end of the bolt. Now, we can do the same thing on our other side. And then we can grab our bottom bar. Remember, this is gonna be the one with the two holes on the edge. Slide that into one side. So now once we have our bottom bar and our feet in place, we can take a 15-millimeter socket to tighten down our bolt.Now, just like on the top, we're gonna be taking our inch bolt with a washer and sticking it through the second hole from what's now the top with it upside down. And then we'll use our 1.25-inch vinyl spacers right in between here. And then on the other side, we'll take a lock washer and a nut. And then we can take a 15-millimeter socket and 15-millimeter wrench to tighten these up. And then we can repeat that same process for our other three sides.So, our next step is to install our side rails. Now, there's gonna be a circular hole at the top on all four corners. This is for any accessories that you might add down the line. So, we're gonna put that hole at the top because if we flipped it, then we'd be fighting gravity where our accessories could slip out. So, we'll line it up. We're once again using our button-head bolts with the captured lock washer and washer, just like we did for our top bars.And now once we have all of our bolts hand-tight, we can tighten those down with a 4-millimeter Allen bit. And then once we're done with this one, we can repeat the same process for our other five. So now that we have our rack fully assembled, now's a good time to grab yourself a buddy to help you lift up the rack onto the bedrails. So now, once we have our rack installed onto our bed rails, we can install our brackets to fully mount it.Now, the little teeth on the bracket are gonna go on the inside and press against the bed rail. We're gonna be using two of our carriage bolts coming through the backside, and then we can fish that up into place. And then we'll add a flat washer, a lock washer, and a nut. And then while we put upward pressure on our clamp, we can tighten those nuts down with a 13-millimeter socket. And now once we have one of our brackets tightened down, we can do the same thing for our other three.So now, our last step is to install our accessory plate on the side of our rack. We're gonna be using six of our hex head bolts. These are gonna go into those little holes we pointed out earlier. We're gonna go two on each of our side rails. So, to make this a little bit easier, I've put a little strip of tape under each of our bolts here. That way, it'll hold it into place while we get our accessory piece on. This will still allow our bolts to move up so we have some adjustability.So, your tape lines don't have to be perfectly set up. So, then we'll just grab that panel. We'll put our top bolts in first. And then we can slide that up to line up our bottom ones. So now, once we have our accessory piece mounted, our next step is to install a flat washer and a nut onto each of our studs. And to make it a little bit easier, since there's not a lot of room to get your hand in and still be able to twist, I'm gonna grab an 11-millimeter socket on a little extension, and then we'll just repeat that for all of our studs.And now, I've slid it up a little bit so that we can get our bottom studs to straighten out. And then we can continue with our washer and our nut on the bottom ones. And then we can just peel back on our tape. And now for our top tape, I'm gonna take a little plastic pry tool just to get in there and get that off. And now lastly, once we have everything adjusted how we like it, we can take our 11-millimeter socket to fully tighten down all of our nuts.So, that'll wrap up this review and install of the Overland Xtreme Rack for your 2020 and newer Jeep Gladiator JT.
