I'm Ryan from ExtremeTerrain.com, and this is my review of the TeraFlex rear utility cargo rack, fitting all 2007 to 2016 four-door JKs that have a hardtop. If you have a two-door JK or a soft top on your four-door, you will not be able to use this rack.This is for those of you guys who use your JKU for camping or just, like, to haul around a lot of gear. This cargo rack will give you some additional space and also allow you to strap down your cargo when it's in the Jeep, making sure that it stays nice and secure.Now, like all TeraFlex products, this is really well-built and also has the price tag to go along with it, so if you have the budget for it, I definitely recommend taking a look at this rack. As I said, this rack is really well-built. The sidebars are made of an extruded aluminum that's covered in a UV-resistant anodized coating, which means they're going to look good for a long time. And this rack is available with the black sidebars or with the silver if you want a little bit of a different look.The corners of the sides are made of a plastic composite material, and the bottom is a stamped steel to give you plenty of strength. All the side rails have T-slots built into them so that you can add accessories and also tie-downs, and this kit doesn't come with just the basket. It also has your mounting brackets. These allow you to mount the basket onto the support cage of your JKU, and something I really like about them is that they're adjustable. So no matter what size cargo you're trying to carry on the rack or below the rack, you'll be able to make the adjustment and ensure that everything fits.Getting this rack installed on the Jeep is pretty easy, but there is a little bit of assembly that you'll have to do beforehand. TeraFlex does a nice job of including very explicit instructions, and even though there are a lot of pieces, if you follow the instructions carefully, the install is pretty straightforward.The first thing you'll want to do is lay out the bottom of the rack, and then go to installing all of the T-nuts that attach to the rails onto the bottom of the rack. You'll also snap in those composite corners, and once you have the completed rack built, you can install the brackets onto the support cage. Again, those are completely bolt-in, and they'll go into nuts that are welded into the support cage that are normally designed to hold your soft top in place. Once you have the brackets installed, you can bolt the rack itself onto the brackets and adjust it height-wise for whatever type of cargo you're going to be carrying. The whole installation will probably take right around two hours, and you won't need any specialty tools, just some Allen keys and a socket set.As I said in the beginning, TeraFlex is known for making really high-quality products, and along with that comes a little higher price tag. There are other racks that mount in the same location of your Jeep, and if you're only going to use it once a year, maybe you save a little bit of money and you go with one of the less expensive ones. But, if you want one of the higher quality racks that's available, you're going to be using it a lot, and you want to make sure that it holds up over time, I would definitely recommend going with this TeraFlex cargo rack.So, whether you use your Jeep for camping, over-landing, or you just like to haul around a lot of cargo, this will add some additional space and give you a nice area to strap down cargo, and also some accessories, into the rear of your Jeep. This is a really high-quality, well-built product that carries a price tag that goes along with it, but if you're looking for one of the nicer cargo racks that I've seen that mounts onto your support bar, I would recommend taking a look at this rack.So, that's my review of the TeraFlex rear utility cargo rack, fitting all 2007 to 2016 four-door JKs, that you can find right here at ExtremeTerrain.com.

Does exactly what I wanted
I got this so I could store a cooler, water, grill and other hard heavy stuff on the floor and then put tent, pad, bag etc above without all my gear getting mashed together. It's perfect. The assembly video really helps. I also suck a magnetic lantern under it, that makes rummaging around a bit easier.Helpful (4)

Don't fall for it.
I've never in my life could've expected that this product could be so hard to put together. Seriously, it is a painful and tedious setup. For the price, I expected high quality. Don't expect that. The metal is tin metal thin. The side rails are plastic. There is no "rail" on it (because they sell this as a separate product for an insane amount of money) so things will slide out if it's too small. The metal that mounts it onto your Jeep is already starting to rust through the screw holes - rust is running down. Please note that I did not expose this to weather as it's been in my Jeep with a hard top since day 1. Overall, I'd recommend going with a different brand. I only purchased this because I had credits from ExtremeTerrain (yay for demo products!). It does look good and it does fit well. I really do not like that it screws in with two small screws where the soft top mounts.Helpful (7)

Love this! it was just what I needed for extra storage. Easy to assemble. Very tight fit when you have a recline kit in but got it done with a 2nd set of hands.Helpful (9)

A cargo rack should not take 3 hours to put together. Nice product but will never buy this brand ever again due to complex construction.Helpful (9)

Teraflex silver rack
Assembly was rather a pain, but worth it. I doubled my space in the cargo area with this rack. My intention was to prevent someone from grabbing this out the back, on its lowest adjusted position it works like a charm. Beware, when you assemble it, tighten everything down well, it will shack and rattle which is annoying. I bought some different torque bolts to go into the frame with rubber washers to soften the vibration, can't hear it at all now. Well worth the money and time to install it. Don't complain about the I instructions, they all suck, get yourself a Pollack and figure it out. CheersHelpful (9)

This doubled my interior cargo space. It's very well built and makes organizing trips very easy. It doesn't rattle or make noise and if you already have bigger tires it won't make much of a difference as far as visibility out of the back. It's a must have if you go camping or need the extra room.Helpful (10)
Can this be used with a hard top?
Yes, the Teraflex Rear Utility Cargo Rack will work with a hard top.
Any plans to produce this rack for the JL?
Will an ARB 50 fridge on slider fit under this on a 4 door unlimited jk?
We have not tested the ARB 50qt fridge with this rack, but do not believe there would be adequate clearance.
I removed the back seats from my 2 door jk. Will this rack fit?
This rack will not fit the 2 door JK and is designed to work on the 4 door JK only.
Will the Teraflex Rear Utility Cargo Rack fit if you have the rear seat recline kit installed?
The Teraflex Rear Utility Cargo Rack would not work with the rear seat recline kit no.
No, the Teraflex Rear Utility Cargo Rack will not be compatible with a rear seat recline kit.
Teraflex does not rate the load capacity on their cargo rack, However it has been tested to about 45 pounds.
We have not tested the MORyde ammo can tray with the Teraflex Rear Utility Cargo Rack however it is expected that it will not fit. If this does clear, it will block access to the ammo can.
