I have been searching for a roof rack for my 2018 Jeep Wrangler Sahara JLU with a premium soft top. I have found some for hard tops but nothing for soft tops. Does anybody have one installed and pics they could share? Thanks!
This both is and isn't going to answer your question. LOD Offroad https://www.jlwranglerforums.com/lod-destroyer-series-sliding-roof-rack-for-jl/ is soon to release their rack that uses drawer slide like devices to slide the rack out of the way to be able to open the soft top and slide the rack back. I think the design brilliant all while having concern that drawer slide like technology--at least as I believe this rack operates on--normally does not having its mechanism exposed to the elements for mud/dirt/sand to risk gumming up the ball bearing apparatus. I hope I'm wrong.I am going to zombify this thread. Has anyone heard any news from any of the other many companies that made soft top roof racks for the JK? There were options all the way down to like $399 for the JK (barricade) up to $2000 (gobi). It looks like Garvin has some around $1000. But they're for the hard top only. The ****ing JL has been out for like 2 years now. You can't tell me this thing is that much different than the JK. The aftermarket for the JL is pissing me off. I am regretting getting it now. I should've just bought a low mile JK 4 door when I replaced my 2 door Sahara. I talked to Garvin and Kargo Master like 6 months ago and they both said they would be announcing soft top options in the very near future. It was Kargo Master I think that said it would be a couple weeks........Haven't heard any news from either one. At this point the 2,100 dollar GOBI and 14 week wait time seems to be the only option. You can almost get a freaking Hardtop for just a couple hundred bucks more. GOBI has lost their minds.
