Has anyone carried kayaks on a Exposed Rack system with a hardtop mount? I like the click-in system and low profile solid mount but am worried on uplift with a kayak on the gutter rails.
thanks for the reply! I have not seen much bad press on this brand and I like usa made and price seems good for what you get.I’m not carrying kayaks, but will have an RTT mounted shortly when it’s time for camping. There is no way the rack is going to come off as long as your have it secured properly. Same with kayaks. Make sure they’re tied down well and they’re not coming off.
Agreed. I ended up with them since it’s a fairly easy install and still able to remove hardtop like normal. I had Maximus-3/Rhino Rack combo on my JKU and never removed my hardtop after the install. Too much work to have to remove soundbar etc. to go that route. Plus the click in makes taking RTT off and on so much easier.thanks for the reply!

Yeah there is some play. But you wont notice it at all when driving. It is there because of the way the click in mechanism works. Once I put my kayak on though there is almost no play, so that guys kayak must be pretty light.Quick question for you. I found this youtube video below. It shows at the 3:50 minute mark that the click in system has some play with the kayak mounted. Is yours the same?
