        What product do you sell that can carry 2 kayaks? Total weight around 125 lbs??

        • This will only support up to 88 lbs and will not be able to support 125 lbs for the 2 kayaks. For further assistance in finding a solution we recommend reaching out to one of our experts directly over phone by calling in at 1-877-870-8556 or by chatting in with our live chat support option.

        So I am looking for a solution to carry 2 kayaks. Weight of each Kayak is 40 pounds. Is that too close to the max load weight of 88 pounds? Or should I look at something else??

        • Two kayaks at 40 lbs each should not present an issue for the Rhino-Rack Vortex SG 2 Bar Roof Rack, however if using a Kayak mount, this may push you past the load rating.

        Hi, I understand that the Rhino rack Vortex SG 2 Bar roof rack sit on the hardtop rain gutters. My question is - do you know what the weight capacity is for a 2017 Jeep Wrangler JK Sport Unlimited hard top roof and how much weight can the rain gutters hold? Because all the weight is sitting on the roof rack/cross bars and the removable hard top is essentially bearing the weight of whatever cargo I will have in a cargo box on the racks,my concern is that the roof of the jeep will not be structurally sound. Can you tell me how much weight the hard top can support?

        • The Rhino-Rack Vortex SG 2 Bar Roof Rack features an 88lb weight limit due to the way it installs on the rain gutters.

        Will this hold and attach to a Yakima carrier?

        • Unfortunately, we have not test fit these Roof Rack Carrier Bars with any Yakima baskets. However, if the baskets are made for universal fitment there should not be any issue with using these roof rack bars.

        The installation video notes there is a front and back bar, and it looks like they are slightly different lengths. However, the installer on the video also notes they can "pretty much be positioned anywhere on the roof". So, can these bars be positioned so they are both behind the Freedom Panels?

            I love these. They're super easy to install and I can take them off any time I want. I have a 4 door but my buddy has a 2 door and borrows mine from time to time so they're super useful.

            Overall a nice roof rack.

            It was a pain putting the rack together. I had to re-tap 3 of the screw holes for the clamp during assembly was tempted to return it. After finally getting the rack put together and on the jeep, I can say it is well made and looks great..

            Easy to use roof rack

            It’s kind of early but so far this roof rack is doing well. It was easy to construct and install. I plan to carry kayaks on it and Yakima kayak carriers fit nicely on it. Will see if it stands the test of time. The extra noise it makes is negligible as well.

            So far so good

            Was pretty simple to assemble, one of the bolts has messed up threads but was able to find a quick replacement so didn’t really slow up the install. The instructions all say it is for a JK but it fits fine on my JL. I use it to haul 2x 12’ kayaks and no issues so far.

            Good quality but......

            The cross bars are good quality and fairly simple to assemble although one end piece was a very tight fit. My issue is they are designed to be too close together for carrying a long SUP or Kayak. I ended up installing the rear bar as far forward as practical and the front bar ‘at the rear of the roof’. It then takes our 14’ SUPs. (It would have been nice if I could have got it a bit further to the rear to make it easier to load the SUP from behind)

            I'm fairly disappointed in this purchase

            I was hoping for a rack that could go behind my freedom tops so that I wouldn't have to take it on and off frequently. Reading the product descriptions and other reviews it was unclear if I could mount it in that fashion but some of the review photos seemed to display it in that position so I took a gamble. Unfortunately the front bar is not long enough to sit behind the freedom tops. Given the ambiguity of the commentary I knew that was a risk and it is fairly easy to take these on and off so I was prepared to just live with my mistake however I have also found that the rubber inserts atop the bars will not stay in which has been frustrating. When they pop out the rough grooves damage the paddle board I am typically hauling. I will need to find a different rack to reduce the amount of irritation this is creating for me.

            Not cheap but worth the money

            I was looking for a 2-bar system for my inflatable pontoon boat. Tried other options but found the Rhino Rack to be the best of the class. My pontoon weights 80 lbs. I drove 17 hrs and 25‰ of it in tough terrain. The rack was solid. No leaks, no issues. Very pleased with it.

            Leaks

            I bought this for the purpose for hauling kayaks. It hold the kayaks great. It was a very easy install and doesn’t require drilling. However, if you are planning to leave the racks on during the rain, it will make your car leak. Not bad enough to cause damage but enough to make it very annoying. So plan on taking the rack off if it rains.

            It was super easy to put together and install. Luckily it clips to your rain guards so no drilling. I put them on farther back so I can still take freedom panels off without removing the racks. They do not whistle in the wind.
