The Rack Tray is made of thermoformed plastic, lighter than steel and has better impact resistance. Recessed, installed I-bolts anchor tie-down straps to hold cargo tightly and secure. Holds up to 100 lbs. of gear. Rounded corners (vs. square) help prevent injury when bumped. *Receiver Hitch Rack Bracket needed to install Rack Tray. Individual brackets sold separately. This is the basket only.
We bought this rack for more cargo space for a week long camping trip to Montana with our dog.
It was great because it allowed our dog full use of the space underneath the rack, while keeping our gear inside the cargo area. It was super useful, and we couldn't have done the trip with out it. It makes it much easier to put the top up and down, while keeping everything a little more aerodynamic and secure (as much as a jeep with a softop can be either).
It was much smaller than I'd expected once installed... but held everything we needed it to.
My few gripes are because of the molded plastic design. While light weight, it traps air. At the higher altitudes, it would start to whistle when the pressure inside began to leak out through the molded in nuts that hold the tie down eye loops. Those nuts also began to tear out due to having (what I assume) too much stretch on my bungee cords that were holding our luggage in place.
I just took out one of the tie down eye bolts to allow for pressure differences, and used the rails for my bungee cords, and it was perfectly fine.
