This innovative rack system is an easy bolt-on solution for Wranglers that requires no modifications to the body of your Jeep. The unique swing-away feature allows you to access your soft top with ease, and the hard top or freedom panels can even be removed without removing the rack system. And as an added bonus, the forward mounting bar acts as an integrated light bar, plus it accepts the Rugged Ridge drop down light bracket (PN RUG11232.22) to mount up to 4 lights. Optional clamps (PN RUG11703.10) available for the Roof Rack System allow you to mount industry standard cross bars and racks so you can carry your favorite bikes, kayaks, skis, boards, or whatever your inner Sherpa desires. All components are dual stage textured black powder coated steel and an e-coat rust preventative pre-applied. Backed by the industry leading Rugged Ridge 5-Year Limited Warranty, you can count on this rack to perform for years to come.

      Thanks for the inquiry. Depending on which AEV rear bumper you have you may have clearance issues. I would take a look at the instructions here to see if your bumper will cause issues.

      Hello Mike,

      You will need to drill a few holes in the factory bumper to mount the Rugged Ridge Sherpa Roof Rack System RUG11703.01. Thank you for the email.

      The Rugged Ridge Sherpa Roof Rack system does not mount to the bumper, it mounts to the frame behind the rear wheels.
