        I am a little confused. The original rack mounts to the gutter and rear window hinges and can hold up to 150lbs. This add-on kit adds more mounting points thereby increasing the weight capacity to 300lbs - correct?

        • The Smittybilt Defender Rack Roof Mounting Kit is designed to mount the Smittybilt Defender rack to your hardtop directly. This will not increase any load capacity.

            Roof rack mounting brackets

            The Smittybilt roof rack fits many makes and models of vehicles. These brackets are for a Jeep JK with a hard top. They were easy to assemble and worked well.

            Looks great

            Very well made. Easy install. Took less then 2 hours. Most the time was spent leveling it.

            Cool looking rack

            Such a beautiful rack. No extra ropes or anything that looks akward when mounting.
