2021 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Roof Rack Recommendation for Thule Hullavator Pro Kayak Carrier


Is this product, Rhino-Rack Roof Rack for Thule and Yakima Tracks - 2 Heavy-Duty Crossbars - Black - 65 inch Long, Item # Y01-140B-NT compatible with the Thule Hullavator Pro Kayak Carrier and a 2021 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited? Thank you!


Expert Reply:

The Rhino-Rack Roof Rack for Thule and Yakima Tracks # Y01-140B-NT you're looking at is for a track system that's been installed on your roof. If you haven't installed Thule or Yakima tracks on your 2021 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited then we need to look into a different setup. We also need to look at different crossbars as the Rhino-Rack HD bars are much larger than standard bars that the Thule Hullavator Pro # TH898 installs to.

For your application I recommend going with the gutter mount Rhino-Rack kit with the Vortex Aero Crossbars. This fits directly to the gutters on your 2021 Wrangler Unlimited and gives you crossbars that are compatible with the Hullavator Pro carrier. Here are the parts you need:

59" Vortex Aero Crossbars - # RRVA150B-2
RLTP Leg Adapters - # RRVA-FK1-2
Gutter Mount Roof Rack Legs - # RRRL110S5-2

Attached is a link to our installation video of this same kit (using silver bars) on a 2020 Wrangler Unlimited for you to check out. Please note you may need to offset the crossbars so there is enough clearance for the Hullavator Pro to extend down without making contact with your vehicle.
