1.0 Woun't work on a TJ Wrangler.

These will not work on a TJ Wrangler with the fiberglass hard top. You have to remove the rubber on the clamp piece for the door to close. They want to slip off as you tighten the clamping nut because of the extreme angle on the outer clamp piece.

5.0 Rain Gutter Clamps; Roof Rack Brackets

I bought a rack and rail setup from another vehicle for my 99 Cherokee. These brackets had up and down adjustment as well as enough adjustablility side to side to use the roof bars and brackets from the off-brand basket. These mounts are tougher than the jeep! I overtightened a couple and noticed the roof rails starting to bend! Note: Instructions are microscopic, so I had to use a picture online to set up correctly. High quality part. I am a big guy and I grabbed the basket and rocked the whole car violently side to side. I think I can damage something on the jeep before these brackets would ever come loose!
