4.0 Nice Basket, instructions need improvment

The basket it self appears to be very sturdy. I am surprised that it is only rated for 150 LBS. In this day and age I wonder why they do not offer their instructions in color and on the website. The instructions are vague in the assembly and some of it was even wrong and I had to disassemble it to make it correct.

Question & Answers

6 Answered questions

Q: It shows this fits on my 2022 JL 2 door, but when I checked on the Smittybilt site, it states it is not compatible. Can you please clarify if it doe fit? Do I need to purchase any other parts to make it fit or is the Smittybilt site not up to date? Thanks Answer this question

A: In theory, it should fit right in the rain gutters. It fit right onto my Gladiator. Their website needs much updating. If you are near me, I would let you try it out.

Answered by djthumper from North Las Vegas, NV on 04/09/2022

A: It fit perfectly on my 2020 JL 2DR-the mounting brackets adjust. Just follow the directions to the tee-you need another person to help place it on the top.

A: Yes, the Smittybilt Defender Basket Rack - S/B45304JT will fit a 2022 JL 2 Door.

Answered by Dave from 4WP HQ on 04/08/2022

Q: This just for the basket or does it include the method to attach it to the roof? Answer this question

A: Contacted Smittybilt Tech Support. This does NOT come with any mounts for the JT. Smittybilt does not have mounts for the JT. You can order and use the drill in mounts if you need to make it work I was told.

Answered by Mike from Chino valley, AZ on 10/01/2021

A: Since this is JT specific, it does include the mounting brackets.
