Couple other questions:
Is the company still taking a long time to ship
Does this work with the Bestop automatic roof?
Do the OEM bolts still suck, and do you still need to pickup your own HEX bolts to make this thing work?
Dang that looks so good!
On their site, there are only two kayak accessories, a kayak "center mount" and a kayak "offset" mount. Is this what you mean? https://www.smsparts.com/product-page/8-00-9833-center-pin-y-kayak-mount
Is that the only additional thing I need to buy?
Thanks for this review many years ago. I am going to be buying an exposed rack for my 2-door soft top.
I was planning on getting the "click-in" bar, not the solid cross-bar. Is that the right move? This here: https://www.smsparts.com/product-page/8-00-9756-bk-m-f-jl-soft-top-pkg-txt-blk
Great call, thanks. This looks like a good fit. I think I would get the soft top "click-in" roof rack, and not the solid crossbar, correct?
What other accessories outside of the soft top click-in roof rack would I...
Hey MarcDM - thanks so much for this post last year. I am currently facing a similar situation that you were facing. I have a 2021 2-door wrangler coming, and I'm looking for surfboard rack options. The one difference, is that I have a soft top not a hard top.
Two questions for you:
Did you buy something high price / fully loaded? That seems quite fast in this environment.
I got a sport-S pretty bare bones at 7% under invoice, approximately $36k, and the wait time starting June 15th is 4 months.
Have they ever emailed everyone with a custom order before, or is this the first time?
Very curious to hear if they are setting low expectations, or if they truly think it's gonna take another 3 months when it should have already been delivered.
