Installation Time: Afternoon
September 18, 2015
I purchased this product after speaking with a representative who assured me it would work with my roof top tent. Purchasing it was fluid and easy, delivered on time and was the product I ordered. Thus I recommend Extreme to my friends. Overall installation is quite easy. The major problem was fitement of the product. Giving the product needs to be mass produced and allow for jeeps individual variances, one does expect a few issues. This product however has fitement issues within itself. The tubing and bolt through design for joiner is not precise, thus creating weak joints. The overall distance from front to back is to large of span for the light tube joints and a roof top tent. The windshield light bar was no where's close to fitting my jeep, and now have to remove the bar and open the mounting holes to allow for a cleaner fit. I followed the instructions to the letter and even had a fellow off-roader read them and double check in case I missed something. I have rugged ridges two piece snorkel and love the product and how it installed. this rack has disappointed me in all aspects, I installed my roof top tent and allowed my kids to crawl up and lay down inside. Totaling a whopping 70 lbs they had the main two cross bars flexing. Then asked my 120 lb wife to join them and well that was it for that adventure. The mounting hardware stabbed my jeep top, which good thing I trimmed that hard ware or it would have been worse. Needless to say, the tent came off, the rack came off and I am going to go with my original choice of racks.
