Video Transcript for Rhino-Rack Gutter Mount Roof Rack Legs Review

Hi, everyone. It's Evangeline here at etrailer and today we'll be taking a look at our Rhino-Rack Gutter Mount Legs which are 8 1/4 inches tall here at etrailer. So these are going to be ideal If you have a Jeep, if you have a van, if you have a vehicle with either factory mounted gutters or if you install those gutters yourself but you also want a way to build or make a Rhino-Rack system. So these are your slightly taller than average gutter mount legs and that's gonna be ideal if you need a little extra height or clearance. Maybe you're carrying around skis with extra large bindings and you need that clearance underneath. Or maybe the way you have your gutters mounted is a little bit below the roof level compared to other vehicles.

Whatever situation you're in, let's see if this video will help you out with figuring if these are the right legs for you. So the towers themselves are made of nylon so that is a little bit more lightweight than let's say the steel towers you would see on your more traditional, let's say naked roof towers or the ones that clamp onto your roof. So this nylon again is lightweight but it's also UV resistant. So as you have this on your roof, as you have this on your gutter, it is gonna be exposed to the elements. It is going to be exposed to the sun and that's where their UV resistance comes in handy because you don't want it deteriorating underneath the sunlight.

With this being lightweight though, there is a glass reinforcement on the inside and that adds to its weight capacity as well as its durability. So the actual height measurement of this is going to be 8 1/4 inches tall. So that height is going to be from the channel of your gutter to right where your crossbar is attached. So it's not the total height but the usable height of your tower. So from there, you can then estimate from the underneath your crossbar, whether it be your Vortex crossbar or your square crossbar, that's gonna be the clearance you have from your roof to your crossbar.

So measure your own gutter mount or your own channel to see if this will work with your vehicle. Now, this is not using lock and key to secure it. What it does use is its own hex tool or hex key. It has its own special shape from Rhino-Rack and this is what is used to either tighten down or loosen the bolts holding the clamp into place. So if someone does not have this special hex tool, they won't be able to undo it.

So not the same as having your own key and your own lock keyed to or keyed to itself but it's still a form of security measure. Now the install process is really simple for these. All you need is a gutter to mount these towers to. You need the kit itself, you need your crossbars and you need some tools. So my final thoughts about these gutter mounts is that they give you a pretty decent height or clearance above your roof. So whether you have certain vehicles where you need access to the sunroof and you're worried about those really low profile bars that don't give you enough, if you have, let's say cargo or items that you are carrying that require a little bit more clearance like your skis with large bindings. Or if you have, let's say a solar panel on top of your roof and you just wanna get above that, this might be a great option for you. If you're just using a roof rack as a roof rack and you're not concerned about clearance but maybe a little bit more about looks, check out our recommended fit for your vehicle. Those are usually a little bit more low profile, look a little bit more factory like. They'll give you as much clearance but again, there's pros and cons, it does depend on you and your situation but I hope this video helped you out with that decision making. And that was a look here at our Rhino-Rack Gutter Mounted Legs which are 8 1/4 inches tall here at etrailer. My name is Evangeline and I hope this helps you out. Enjoy the journey..

Rhino-Rack Roof Rack Legs - Gutter Mount - 8-1/4" Tall - Qty 2 - RL210S2

Average Customer Rating:  4.5 out of 5 stars   (37 Customer Reviews)

These 8-1/4" tall roof-rack legs are designed to mount on your vehicle's factory rain gutters with included brackets and hardware. The legs work with 1 Rhino-Rack Heavy-Duty or Aero crossbar (sold separately). Security bolts included.

Jeep Wrangler

The folks at etrailer made it easy for me to get the right rack and crossbars for my Jeep. I have a skytop so the rack had to be tall enough to clear the top as it opens and closes (accordion style). The customer service person who helped me recommended the rack legs with the right amount of clearance and the right size cross bars. The website had photos of other Wrangler Unlimited owners with the rack installed on the same type of top. The video of installation was clear and thorough. No problems with the rack at all; still tight and flush on the gutter, no wind noise with the rubber inserts, doesn't look all weathered and beaten after a New England winter either. The boat on the rack only weighs about 45 pounds but the rack can easily handle double that or more.


Awesome, and look great on my jeep, the most aspect of it all is the slick design which make it for easy assemble from the gutter legs, railings and the basket,it really proclaim the the name ( Rhino ) tough


Perfect height for the Jeep Wrangler one touch top.


I think it just looks good first of all. I can carry my paddle boards and still use my one touch roof top.

Saturn Sky

Works fantastic! Has plenty of clearance to operate my one touch sky roof. Easy install and plenty of room to carry two kayaks.


Thank you for assisting with this purchase. Had little information for racks that would work with the 1 Touch Skytop on the Wrangler. Knowledgeable staff, smooth order and great installation. Very happy with the overall service.

2021 Jeep Wrangler Sahara 4XE with 1 Touch Skytop Roof


Wish they would fit better. Always worried they will fall off. They are tight but wish i went with the Thule. The rhino crossbars that i purchased to go with it whistle bad at high speeds.

Etrailer Expert

Katrina B.


We do recommend getting a fairing like part # RRRF4. This will help reduce the whistle at high speeds. I see you have the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars, part # RRVA150B-2, and this fairing should fit right on your application.

Jeep Wrangler

Fits the new 2024 Jeep wrangler 4xe per fectly.

2021 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited

Perfect fit and very easy assembly.


I love that these racks were offered in the tall height to accommodate my 2020 Jeep Wrangler Sky One-Touch Roof. However, after having them on for about 2-3 months, I've noticed they loosened due to the protective strip inside the gutter mount slipping off and creating a loose connection to the car. It seems like the glue on the protective strip inside the gutter mount melted/loosened/came off.


Perfect for the sky one touch. You can open the top up with no issues.

Saturn Sky

Works great with our Sky One-touch top!


Perfect fit for my one touch sky top on my 4xe Jeep Wrangler. My only complaint is the whistling which I solved with duct tape underneath to cover the open slots.


This is an awesome company my order was missing a couple parts and I talked to Carrol and I had them in two days. Amazing customer support !!


If you have a sky-onetouch jeep is this exactly the height you need. Works perfectly with a cargo box, and sometimes just camping gear spanning the aerobars. The clamps do not damage the gutter in anyway, not even a scratch...And I'm a notorious over-tightener. Highly recommend.


Fits the jeep wrangler JL perfectly, fits right into those gutters.


Item was exactly as described and pictured. Arrived quickly after ordering. etrailer was the only place I could even find this item in stock, even the manufacturer was on backorder. Will definitely be using etrailer for future purchases.


Affordable prices and great service!





Thanks for reaching out. I can honestly say that the Rhino Roof Rack left a LOT to be desired. When I first installed it, it had a mind melting whistle that was so bad that I had to caulk every gap in order to get it to stop. I feel that the engineering of the product is poor & am completely amazed that me as a consumer would have to go to this length for a product that is right out of the box. How did this pass any sort of "inspection for quality"? You offer the strips that are supposed to solve this problem, but it absolutely did not. After caulking the entire rack was the only way to stop the intense whistling sound. Please share this with your Engineering team & have them redesign the rack & actually do some wind tunnel testing & solve it, so consumers don't have to spend hours researching it & fixing the problem themselves.




Superb support sorting out this order.

  • Rhino-Rack Gutter Mount Legs 8-3/10" Tall # RL210S2 Quantity
    The Rhino-Rack Roof Rack Legs - Gutter Mount - 8-3/10" Tall - Qty 2 # RL210S2 is two legs so you will have the legs for just one crossbar with this part number. You will need to order 2 for the 4 legs for a full roof rack. If you don't already have crossbars, you can use either Heavy Duty Square bars or Aero Vertex Crossbars with these towers. They are available in different lengths to fit your application so I've linked the page to all your options.

  • Can Taller Legs Be Added To Rhino-Rack Gutter Mount Roof Rack On VW Westfalia?
    Based on the photos you attached, you will want to go wtih Rhino-Rack Roof Rack Legs - Gutter Mount - 8-3/10" Tall - Qty 2 # RL210S2. These are universal legs that attach to roof gutters and they are the same style as the ones you pictured, only these are 8-3/10" tall. This will give you the necessary clearance that you are looking for; there are not any spacers for your current setup that will give you the clearance you are looking for so I recommend going with these legs.

  • 2021 Jeep Wrangler 4xe Rubicon Roof Rack Recommendation to Fit Sky One Touch Roof
    From what I'm seeing the 2021 Jeep Wrangler 4xe Rubicon has the gutters so you'll be able to use the 59" Vortex Crossbars # RRVA150B-2 with either the 8-1/4" # RL210S2 or 11" # RL280S4-2 gutter mount legs. I've seen some videos of these having enough clearance for the Sky One Touch roof but Rhino-Rack still doesn't list these as a fit so won't cover any warranty of the roof rack if it becomes damaged as a result of using it with this system. I'm not sure why they haven't tested and approved...

  • Difference Between Rhino-Rack Roof Rack Legs RL210DS8 and RL210S2
    The Rhino-Rack Roof Rack Legs for Land Rover Defender # RL210DS8 are a specific fit for the Land Rover Defender while the Rhino-Rack Roof Rack Legs # RL210S2 are more of a universal fit. With that being said, we will want to make sure everything you get is confirmed as a fit for your vehicle so if you could let me know your year/make/model I can help you find the best kit for your vehicle. The RLTP Leg Adapters # RRVA-FK1 are the adapters that you would use for either leg kit mentioned...

  • Does Rhino Rack Roof Rack for 2021 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Have Dynamic Weight Capacity
    We have dynamic weight capacities for our roof racks like the Rhino Rack you mentioned of 59inch Long Vortex Aero Crossbars # RRVA150B-2 and 8inch Tall Gutter Feet # RL210S2 which is rated for 165 lbs but we do not have a static number. Usually people request this number because they plan to use a roof rack mounted tent. You should note that most roof tents will say you can utilize the full weight capacity of the tent as long as the roof rack has a dynamic weight capacity of 165 lbs at least.

  • Most Affordable Roof Rack For 2012 Ford Van
    The most economical and shortest length roof rack for your 2012 Ford Van would be the Inno Square Crossbars - Steel - Black # INB165 along with Feet # INSD. The crossbars themselves are 65" long and the feet will connect to your van's door jam. The weight capacity for this system is 176lbs but make sure you don't exceed the weight limit of your van's roof; this is typically found in the owner's manual.

    Depending on the type of solar panels you have, there shouldn't be any real safety concerns when mounting the solar panels to a roof rack as long as the panels are properly mounted.

Most solar panels are designed to be mounted to the roofs of passenger vehicles or motorhomes, so they won't have any speed restrictions when they are being used in accordance with the manufacturer's...

  • Roof Rack and Ski/Snowboard Carrier Recommendation for 2022 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon
    The aero bar style of the Rhino Rack Vortex crossbars would be what you'd want to go with as that would have the least wind resistance and noise. The HD bars are great but they are more for construction type applications. So you'd want the parts: Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars # RRVA150B-2 Rhino-Rack Roof Rack Legs # RL210S2 This would work really well with the Rhino Rack Ski and Snowboard Carrier # RR576 that you mentioned as well.

  • Adding Crossbars To A Teardrop Trailer
    The Rhino-Rack Artificial Rain Gutters # 739A are a universal fit since you'd be drilling through the wall of the trailer and bolting them in place. The only issue you might have is just with the bolt length. If the wall is too thick then you'll just need to reach out to Rhino-Rack or check with your local hardware store. I definitely recommend using some butyl tape # AL28FJ on the back of the gutter bracket to help prevent water from leaking in. This comes with a gasket but butyl tape...

The towers are made out of plastic and are very durable; I have not seen any complaints about the towers breaking; a lot of roof racks use plastic towers.

In general I prefer the Rhino Rack as you get a higher quality roof rack that has aero shaped bars which do better with wind noise as a better price than the similar quality racks that cost a lot more.
