Yes, 59 is sufficient if you are only putting things on top of the crossbars.Yes, I'm looking to get the Rhino-Rack set up for my 4-door Diesel Rubicon with the One Touch Sky top. Get the 210mm legs, and then the 59" crossbars?
OK so this rack whistles like crazy; what do I do about that?? Do I need to get the aero bars and a wind deflector??Yes, 59 is sufficient if you are only putting things on top of the crossbars.
However, If you are considering mounting an awning on the side (now or in the future) look into how much additional space on the crossbars the awning of your choice will need.
Good luck! Post pics!
Curious...I always thought Bull that the weak link in weight here was the gutter's of the hard top themselves......guess not...Yakima also makes a guttermount roof rack very similar to this, that has footer extensions. That is my set up, with a Yakima LoadWarrior Basket.
I think the static weight is 800lbs (I would NEVER put that much weight on the fiberglass gutters), but the dynamic weight, which is a more realistic measurement, is about 250.
Looks like this RhinoRack system is solid tho! Nice choice.
I've been thinking about that too Leslie. Any wind foil/air deflector that hangs off of the more forward of the cross members would get in the way of opening the power top, right?OK so this rack whistles like crazy; what do I do about that?? Do I need to get the aero bars and a wind deflector??
