SRC Roof Rack
Still researching actual cargo baskets, but as for the SRC Roof Rack, I love it! It looks fantastic, gives a Jeep a whole new look... I installed by myself, and I will say - install would have been easier with two people. But it is do-able by yourself. Comes with all the fasteners (I really appreciate that). Once I got pass the fact I had no help, total install time - under 2 hours.Helpful (10)

Some flaws but nothing major
Other than a few of the minor details, which I will get to in a second, this is a great rack. The paint finish and texture are very tough and looks great. The bar size is great for hammocking off of and the top rails are perfect fit for Yakima brand products. Installation was easy. I don't know why it took the other guy over an hour to drill the holes on the back out but I used a DeWalt 18 v drill with an Ideal Unibit and got the holes knocked bigger in about 5 minutes. a half an inch bigger is too big by the way. That isn't even the minor details I am getting to. First, It is noisy. They need to remedy the situation with an angled wind deflector. Second, I don't think you can install a snorkel with this set up. Unless there is another product made to get this to work. It would however look awesome with some off road lights on the sides by the mirror. My next to do.Helpful (12)

Not a perfect fit
This rack is strong and looks good once installed. I have used it for mounting snowboard and bike racks as well as moving furniture across town. If you are mounting it on a stock bumper there are 2 issues that you will be facing: The holes on the rack to attach it to the rear bumper/frame are not spaced for the stock bumper; they are spaced for Smittybilt's aftermarket bumper. The holes will need to be widened about 1/2" (there are 4 of them). This took about an hour with a (very strong) drill and bit. The other issue is the bolt that is used to mount the bumper and rack to the frame is welded to the bumper from the factory and it is very short. It was very difficult to get the nut to catch any threads once the rack was in place. We ended up just cutting it off with an angle grinder and using the bolt that came with the rack.Helpful (13)
