Rhino Rack Roof Rack for 2018 Jeep Wrangler JLU Mounted Behind Removable Tops


It looks like the front bar is intended to be mounted to the removable tops but Id like to mount both bars behind the removable tops on my JLU. Is that possible?


Expert Reply:

The Rhino-Rack SG Roof Rack for Rain Gutters - Vortex Aero Crossbars - Aluminum - Black # RRSG59 is only rated for the 88 lb load when installed in the exact way shown. Installing behind the removable tops will work for securing the crossbars when not in use, but it is not recommended to carry a load in that location.

If you want the behind the removable tops section, then you will need to reinforce the hardtop. For this I recommend the Rhino-Rack Backbone Roof Rack Mounting System - Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Hard Top # RRRJKB1, the rubber bases # RRQMFK06, Quick Mount Legs # RRRLT600, and crossbars # RRVA150B-2. This will give you the system you are seeking with a strong load capacity of 220 lbs. This is the most popular option for your vehicle.
