I like the idea for the hoop around the lights, but it looks to be a bit much.

With the number of companies selling cheap chinese LED bars growing by the day, you guys should probably adapt that rack with tabs to hold one. Seems like many jeep armor shops make LED light mounts to hold a 40-50" bar above the windshield on JKs and TJs. Nothing for the XJ yet. I would never run a bunch of giant lights on the roof of my jeep, but I'd definitely run a LED bar if someone were to make a really nice mount for it. Either make A-pillar mounts like the ones for the wranglers or figure out a way to make it bolt to the pinch seam.

how much does it weigh? and can I get it without the light bar or sides?

And how about some sort of system so tie downs can actually grab and have something edge to edge on the rack?

The mounts are designed in mind to be used with ratchet straps also all corners have an inboard tie down location. we haven't weighed it. Per the earlier FAQ sides and lightbar are optional.

We are back on this today. Hoping to nail this prototype down and figure out what/how we are going to offer this beast!

Here's the rack with 15" extensions in the middle. You can also see the option adjustable tire mount:


70" long + sides:

Go to your fab guy, point to that rack and say "please duplicate, sans the light bar"

Take said duplicate and tape it all together, no need for a box. Mail it to

Thanks.

This is possibly the best looking roof rack I've seen, I like it a lot. You guys make great products! Do you have an idea on cost for the XJ rack yet? I think it would look great on my girlfriends XJ.

Seriously, just take that one off, tape my address on it and ship it this way.

Are there going to be any options for the pre-runner light bar (just a shorter hoop). I like it, but I have a 42" LED light bar and I think it might look a bit out of place on there. If five bodies and a spare hold up... Im hoping a 37" spare will hold.

I was going to order the basic rack for now but noticed they're on "backorder". Any ETA on the final product?

I just got my rear bumper from you guys, and now its time for a rack but i need one by August.
