Bought this from 4wheelparts. The rack came packaged nicely with no damage to the product at all. The finish looks to be spotless. Installation took a little over 3 hours with two people doing the install. The instructions were not extremely detailed but sufficient. I think it would be almost impossible to install this rack without damaging something. One person to hold the uprights in place and runs screws in while the other holds the nuts behind the dash. Excellent product. Very heavy duty. Have not used the rack to haul anything but can’t imagine any issues.

Ordered this for my 95 Wrangler back in 2022. Overall the product works nicely, as I have now had it on for a few months. The only issue I had with the installation, was I had to relocate my Antenna. Shipping issue with the freight company, they "misplaced" my shipment for a few weeks. Then when I finally received it, I was missing the two back bottom pieces that bolt to the frame. Ended up contacting Smittybilt, which I can say enough positive things about. They have a great customer service department. Shipped me the missing items quickly and at no additional charge.

4.0Good product but...
I bought this for my 95 YJ. Instructions were too general and didn't have helpful pictures, which would have been fine if they matched what I have better. The front pieces were the hardest because manufacturer didn't seem to realize there are locknuts on the windshield bolts for this model. For me, this meant laying down the windshield and pulling the dash so I could get a wrench on the back side on driver side, which made it much more time-consuming. Also, I had to go buy some longer screws for that because the ones that came with it weren't long enough to go all the way through locknuts. Hinge gaskets were shaped nothing like my hinges so I cut them to fit (that just confused me). Cross bar screws were inconsistent in length and I needed to buy a few at the hardware store for a few that weren't long enough. Instructions also talk about if you have a factory bumper. I have an aftermarket one, so I was a little confused about if it was talking about if you have a bumper at all or no bumper. Again, no pictures of that. YJ is my only point of reference so for that series, I would recommend this product as long as you can work with limited instructions that don't quite match your situation and don't expect to complete it as quickly and painlessly as implied.

4.0Great budget rack.
Great rack for the price. Easy to assemble barring the somewhat off measurement of one of the cross bars. All the troubles came from my Jeep hardware being seized up.

The instructions are vague, and not model specific. The “powder coating” doesn’t appear to me to be powder coating, and not especially durable. The windshield hinge bolts that have to be removed and reinstalled, were every bit the PITA that all of the reviews said they were. That having been said, once installed it has proven to be a very good rack. I am using it along with a Thule kayak rack, which fit the Smittybilt cross bars without any modifications. My four star rating reflects the “powder coating” issue.

It is possible, due to the size of the bolts you may be required to open up the slots on the rear lower uprights slightly. You will need to remove the plastic end caps as well and you will not be able to re-mount them.
Please take a look at the instructions on the process with a factory bumper. The same steps might apply to your bumper depending on the size of the mounting holes. This rack doesn't go directly on your bumper.
