i figured that i should not have any problems running the kayak with the racks on the back half of the hard top. i can even sit the kayak back a bit and not leave too much of a overhang out back.The rack is the Mopar OEM roof rack. I use it for our Coleman Scanoe which is 14’ long and 85 lbs. When I’m carrying the scanoe I move the front rack up so that it’s attached to the Freedom panels.
do you notice any issues when you run the front rack on the freedom panels while carrying a load.
I think you’d be fine keeping them on as you see in my photos for your kayak. I move the racks up because of the length and weight. Those scanoes are pigs!
They add even more room when you cut 'emHaha yes. The Rubicon fenders add quite a bit of room. Well worth it in my opinion. Rubicon on the left and sport flare on the right
Love the look of this Jeep. I am looking into the same tire size on stock steelies with the 1.5" Teraflex spacer kit as well. I am torn between the 285/70/17 or the 285/75/17 though. Do you have any rubbing or any issues with your tire size and the spacer kit?
