Options For Putting A Yakima Lock N Load Platform On My 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk


Hi, I am getting a 2021 GC trailhawk. Im interested in a low profile platform like the Yakima Lock N Load. I will have the panoramic sunroof. Do I have any options? If not, what options do I have for carrying lumber and gear? Thanks

The lowest profile option for your 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk would be to get the Landing Pad 18 # Y00244 for the Skyline Towers # Y00148 and use the SL adapters # Y05042 for this size Lock N Load Platform (55x49) # Y05044-39. This should get you about 5 inches of clearance from your panoramic roof to the bottom of the platform. This is what I recommend and will be great for hauling your lumber and gear. Just make sure you do not exceed your jeep's roof weight capacity.

If for some reason this does not provide enough clearance for your panoramic roof, you can get the Jetstream Crossbars # Y00425 and use the provided clamps that come with the platform to wrap around the crossbar. This will give you about 1-1/2 Inches of extra clearance, but this is unnecessary.

I've included a picture of the platform on top of a 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee and it looks great! Be sure to check out the videos I've included too to get a better idea of how to install.
