What is the Weight Rating of the Rhino-Rack Gutter Mount Roof Rack on a 2022 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited


Is the weight rating for the rhino rack aero bars and gutter mounts really sub-100 lbs? I was going to get it for the hard top on my 2022 Wrangler Unlimited but now I'm thinking no.


Expert Reply:

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. Since there are many other options out there with a higher rating I recommend going a different direction.

For your application I recommend the Rhino-Rack Backbone roof rack system which consists of the following:

59" HD Crossbars - # RB1500B-2
Quick Mount Legs - # RRRLT600
Backbone System - # RRRJLB1
Rubber Bases - # RRQMFK06
Spacer Blocks - # RRQMHD05-2

This is one of the more heavy-duty systems and it has a weight rating of 175 lbs. The Backbone system gives it some more structure to mount to than a standard gutter mount system which is why there is such a drastic difference.

Attached are instructions for you to check out.
