Our new Adventure Rack for the JL is the most versatile rack we have ever offered. This rack is perfect for someone looking to carry a canoe or kayak, or even a piece of plywood from your local hardware store! With the optional accessories, you will be able to turn your Jeep into the ideal off-road vehicle. The Adventure Rack mounts to the front windshield and bottom rear quarter panel, with no drilling required. The Adventure rack also offers enough clearance to remove the Freedom top front section without having to remove the rack. The off-road weight capacity for the Adventure rack in 300 lbs. (static weight capacity is 600 lbs.) and the top of the rack sits 7.75" above the top of the factory hard top rain gutter. The Adventure rack fits on all 2018 and newer 4 door JL Hardtop Wranglers.
Solid rack, but very heavy. Mine is mounted to my 2019 JL 2 Door. The selection of accessories is minimal at the moment. It would be nice if there were additional mounting accessories, but overall, I'm very happy with the purchase.
5.0Easy install, basic hand tools this can be done..
This product was easy to install by myself. I have aftermarket rear bumpers so it makes the brackets easier to install. Give yourself a few hours and you should be able to knock this out.

I bought the Adventure Rack and I have it on a 2018 JLU soft top and I must say I loved the way it turned out. It's made very well here in the US and once the install was completed it's pretty darn sturdy. It took me almost 6 hours all by myself. It could have been cut down to 3 hours if I had help and possibly 2 hours if it came with instructions that made any kind of sense. C'mon Garvin you can do better than that. Seriously!

4.0Great rack, manual could be better
Very strong rack;
I wish I knew before starting I would need black silicon and a T47 bit that does not come with the Wrangler factory kit. So documentation could be clearer. With pictures, not only drawings. I am an electrical engineer, I have a lot of tools and experience but not much to play with the car, it took me about 10 hours to put this in place working alone, puzzled. If I had to do it a second time knowing what I was doing it would take probably around 3 hours. So, product very nice, manual poor, lost a star. I would buy again.
So in order to install the rack, you will need to remove bumper for install, but once the brackets are in place you can put the bumper back. If you plan on installing yourself, before tightening everything down completely make sure you open/close all the doors, to check clearance and to ensure nothing rubs/hits/touches.
Good luck and thank you for your business.
