    The front bumper and rocker guards are bitchin, but the worlds shortest stubby rear leaves those rear corners extremely vulnerable.

    I’d really like to take a look at that tire carrier.

    My thought exactly - very minimal protection.

    RTT on a rain tray roof rack? I really like the EVO roof rack but with a weight capacity of 154lb on the rack itself and it being mounted to the rails, can it really support that RTT?

    Side note, just looked up the weight of that ARB tent on there and its right at the 154lbs that the rack is rated for. So does that mean the trays can support that weight plus people inside?

    I also wonder about that roof rack system. It looks like such an inventive idea, but I have to wonder if it will break the hard top. Maybe there are supports in the middle that mount into the sport bar directly through brackets between the front sunroofs and the main piece.. ??

    That front bumper is dope!

    They responded to my email on the RTT on the rack and stated that it is currently in testing. it does distribute the load across the rails so might take more weight.

    It doesn't make sense... a rack that can hold only 154lbs for $850??? I have no desire to get a RTT and was hoping there would be some lighter weight racks that weren't as expensive but could carry things like pelican cases and rotopax better than the the standard cross bars from Mopar and the like in that $3-400 range.

    It’s not a bumper. It’s a bumper delete fascia. They make one for the JK too. Provides the best departure angle but you lose some level of protection. I think the Motobilt rear bumper does the best job so far in terms of departure and protection.

    I agree. I wanted to buy a roof rack only to support a Hi Lift and Awning. This seemed perfect until i saw the price. At that price I might as well buy the Rhino Roof Rack system which really CAN hold a RTT with people.
