Our smittybilt Overlander XL did fine up top along with holding us 4 up to sleep at night. Now, our tent is already off and it’s not on permanently. And I plan to make a trailer for it soon enough. But this rack did everything we needed and wanted.
I rented a trailer a month ago, guy said if I had a soft top they wouldn’t allow. Something about if trailer flipped and landed on the Jeep it would be serious injuries and uHaul just doesn’t allow it. I have a hardtop so didn’t have to worry. But was good to know for future.
To get the rack off or a tent?
thehalf rack has 6 feet total and each one is secured with one bolt/mount on the gutters.
The tent we through up quickly and I’m looking at using the quick clamps from front runner so I can unclamp and take off much quicker than ratcheting some bolts.
I just threw a smittybilt Overlander xl on last night. It’s just ratchet strapped at the moment as my buddy forgot the hardware at his house. But I’ll have that last this evening. I’ll post pics once secured.
The corner support brackets needed 2 holes each drilled into the rack itself. I didn’t understand why they weren’t already drilled.. but 8 holes total in the rack itself, so still no drilling into the hardtop
They described it as “needs to be “perforated”....
Inching to 55mph brings on a very bad drone. So much so that my wife looked at me and said “did you get a damn muffler?! You better not have!”
I told her no, but I can if she hates the drone the rack brings🤪
