the picture for this product here on your website shows it mounted on the rain gutter........ where does it really mount to ??

You are correct the brackets will hook into the factory roof rack rails. They will slip inside the slot then have a second bracket that holds it in place. To get a more correct picture pull up part number S/B DS16-4 These are not the clamps you need but will give you a better idea.

How many brackets come with the kit?

There are 6 brackets in the kit so you will need one mounting kit.

I have a 2000 Jeep Cherokee Sport with roof rack.
It says this mounts to the exiting roof rack but in the image it is a gutter mount. How exactly does it install?
Do the factory roof rack bars have to come off or does it mount to those?

Thanks for your question. The Smittybilt Defender Roof Rack Mounting Kit for Jeep mounts with the factory roof rack, not too. The mounts grab the drip rail. The factory roof cross bars do not need to be removed to fit the rack.
