Platform racks are the best in the market I think. I'm removing my Platform rack from my 2007 Jeep Sahara JKU and installing it to my 2021 Rubicon JLU. That shows my love and devotion for this very durable and such a beauty to look at system. Had this rack on close to 5 years and still looks amazing. I'm not installing this rack anytime soon. Just wanted to make sure I have the Backbone system for my new JLU when the time comes. Pic of my red JKU with rack attached. Hopefully I can update with my black JLU pics later.

Great product... I think the best roof rack option for a Jeep Wrangler.
It took me about three hours to install, by myself. Not a hard install. Just follow the instructions and, the etrailer installation video was very helpful also.

  • Can Hard Top Be Removed with Rhino-Rack Backbone Mounting System Installed on Jeep
    The Rhino-Rack Backbone Roof Rack Mounting System # RRRJLB1 is designed to reinforce the structure of your Jeep's hard top so you can carry more weight but it won't physically interfere with the removal of the hard top. Once installed you will still be able to take off and re-install the hardtop on your Jeep without issue.

  • Rhino Rack Pioneer Platform that Fits 2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
    The mounting kit needed to fit a Rhino Rack Pioneer Platform to the roof of a 2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is the part # RRRJLB1 which you could potentially be used with the smaller Pioneer Platform # JA8688 but you are going to end up having to get the # RRQMHD05, the leg kit # RRRLT600 and the # RRRLT600H. I'd go with the larger # JB0893 though as it will fit and is the most cost effective solution. The picture I attached shows what the # JB0893 looks like installed.

  • Recommended Roof Rack System for 2019 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited JLU
    As a fellow Jeep owner I've got some experience with this, and the issue you're going to run into is that the hard tops on Jeep JLU and JKU are not designed to hold any weight because of their lack of internal support. As I'm sure you're aware, they're just a fiberglass shell, so your best bet is going to be starting with a RhinoRack BackBone # RRRJLB1. This kit will add mounting points for a roof rack, while reinforcing the shell of your hard top that will allow you to safely carry weight...

    The weight rating for the gutter mount system from Rhino-Rack is really 88 lbs for your 2022 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited with the hard top.

  • Which Crossbars for Rhino Rack BackBone System to Use Thule Hullavator
    The best solution to use the Thule Hullavator # TH898 with a Rhino Rack Backbone system would be to use Vortex Aero bars like the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars - Aluminum - Black - 65" Long - Qty 2 # RRVA165B-2 (if you're using 3 bars on this setup you'll also need to order the # RRVA165B for a single bar). The extra length on these bars compared to the 59" long bars will give you the extra clearance you need to get away from the side of your Jeep with the Hullavator. You can use the...

  • Will the Gutter Mounts # RL150S13-3 Attach to a Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform?
    I went ahead and researched different options for mounting a platform on your 2021 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited with a 4-door hard top. The correct platform that is an engineered fit for your vehicle is the Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform Roof Tray - Aluminum - 72" Long x 56" Wide # RR52TB. The way that Rhino-Rack recommends mounting this platform confirmed with the Rhino-Rack Backbone Roof Rack Mounting System # RRRJLB1.
