Can the Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform Be Installed on Aero Crossbars


I plan on purchasing an entire roof rack setup for my JLUR Wrangler, Ive been researching a lot and was wondering if I could mount a rhino rack pioneer platform to a thule aeroblade crossbar setup? Also, what Batwing do I need? Thanks in advance!


Expert Reply:

In order to attach the Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform to a set of crossbars you would need the kit that comes with universal mounts which is part # RR42114BF for 48" long x 37" wide or part # RR42115BF for 58" long x 47" wide. This system attaches to round, square, aero, elliptical, and most factory crossbars. This includes Thule AeroBlade crossbars however, they do not make a kit with AeroBlade crossbars that will fit your 2018 Jeep JL Wrangler Unlimited.

Instead, I recommend using the Rhino-Rack SG Roof Rack for Rain Gutters part # RRSG59 which has aero crossbars with integrated t-slots that are very similar to the AeroBlade crossbars but at a fraction of the cost. I have attached an install video of this kit on a similar 2018 Jeep JL Wrangler Unlimited for you as well.

The correct Batwing Awning that will work for you is part # RR33100 for driver's or part # RR33200 for passenger's side.
