        I love it!

        Easy to install and a very clean look. Also no extra bolts to take off to remove the hard top.

        5 2012 Rubicon - DanS

        Good product, easy install

        I bought this for use with the Rhino Rack Pioneer platform. The fit and finish is excellent, looks really nice. The instructions are sufficiently comprehensive, just to be sure to read through them a time or two before you do the install. Also make sure you read everything on the page, because certain steps are contained in separate blocks of text and sometimes I would accidentally skip a step. The most nerve-wracking part is drilling holes in a perfectly good fiberglass top, but that went just fine. When you are using the paper template to mark the front holes, make sure that you cut the paper along the dotted line and double and triple check the distances with a ruler.

      1 Top Rated Question

      I have a 2012 jku looking to add this system. My question is what is the drive down the road weight limit compared to the stationary weigh limit. My tent is 126 pounds, my bat wing awning is 50 lbs.. that doesnt leave much room for me 200 lbs and my wife 128 lbs. In the stationary parked position does the actual weight load increase?

      • This has a maximum load of 246lbs, limited by the strength of your OEM hard top. We do not recommend this for mounting rooftop tents.
