5.0 Very Pleased

Easy installation, looks solid and feels solid and looks good on the Jeep.

5.0 Nice Rack!

Really happy with this rack. It's bigger than the basket that I had on my last jeep and didn't require a cross-bar system. All the gutter mounts and hardware came with it. Even better was the price; it definitely didn't break the bank like some of the $1,000-plus racks out there. I think it looks great and still lets me remove my freedom top panels.

Easy install!
5.0 Great JL/JLU Rack with no need to drill your top.

The rack works great and is easy to install. We liked this rack because there was no drilling and it was just the right size for us. Added on the shovel and axe holder as well as the high lift mounts. We are now ready to go for a long weekend somewhere!
