Nice roof rack
Happy with this purchase, allows me to haul a canoe or a miscellaneous bulky item..... I was considering this rack or a trailer and when not using this rack it takes up less room in my garage so NO trailer. plus I have a good excuse to install round KC Lites in the front light mount positions.Helpful (6)

Rugged Ridge Sherpa Roof Rack Kit
Absolutely love our new rack. It was as easy to install as the video said it would be. Took it to a location here in town and they installed it and the charge was not even as much as the quote was because it was that easy to install. It makes my jeep look like a jeep shouldHelpful (7)

Sturdy Roof Rack
Pretty easy to install. I hear the slightest of wind noise but only once in awhile. It sits up high but I'm 6' 2" and can strap down the gear (kayak, luggage, etc) easy enough. I siliconed the bolt holes and seams and see no rust or corrosion after 6 months.Helpful (10)

Best purchase ive made
I mainly got this because my dog has grown up and is no longer able to sleep on the center console between my girl and myself on our stocked up jeep ride to NH and well ive used it various times and its great only problem i had was using the 2 self tapping bolts didnt work at all ... so i had to tap the frame myself and use other bolts but thats no problwm really. And then looking at it from the side the pipes going over the top look like they sag a little but i havent had a problem with them but i still love this product none thw lessHelpful (11)

I saw an earlier question about folding back the soft top all the way with the rack on, and it can't. How about if it is in the tilted back position? Can i fold the soft top back all the way then?
Yes, if you tilt the Rugged Ridge Sherpa Roof Rack you will be able to fold back the soft top or switch from a hard top to a soft top.
Hello... I want to purchase the SherpaRoof Rack for my 2016 Wrangler Rubicon JK. The only thing I need to know is how high the rack sits over the existing roofline because clearance on my garage door is an issue. More specifically... what is the overall height of a stock jeep with the Sherpa Rack installed... or ... how many inches is it from the top of the jeep roof to the top of the Sherpa roof rack bars. Sorry to be so specific but I have no parking pad so the jeep must fit inside the garage door. Thanks in advance for any information you can provide. Have a great day.... Mitch
We cannot provide an overall height because height differs from Jeep to Jeep but the height from the top of the OEM rear bumper, the rack is 48.91". With the cross bars installed, it sits at 7.5" above the windshield and 5.5" above the center bow of a soft top.
What is the static load capacity?
This roof rack kit has a 300 pound capacity.
Do Thule kayak cradles work with the cross bars provided? Thanks in advance. Rick.
Will this work with the AEV Premium rear bumper?? Thx!!
A 3rd hole may need to be drilled for the installation of the rear bracket.
This is intended to work with a hard or soft top installed.
We would recommend contacting Rugged Ridge directly for replacement parts.
This rack may interfere with the Sunrider when open, but you can tilt this back to open the top. If the Sunrider lays flat when open it should fit under the rack.

Hello, yes, you shouldn't have any problem installing this rack with the Barricade Trail Force HD rear bumper.
No with the Rugged Ridge Sherpa Roof Rack Kit (07-17 Wrangler JK 2-Door) you would not be able to fold the top completely back.
