The ultimate in sport racks, the Safari Sport Rack is a semi-permanent, modular system. As its base, two independent crossbars mount at the vehicle’s windshield and rear tub areas as supports for lights, small watercraft, and/or a cargo basket. Quick release snapper pin disconnects on each crossbar leg allows them to be easily removed from the vehicle (this feature is not available for the Cherokee application). When a cargo basket is not affixed, the crossbars create a canoe and/or sailboard carrier. As light supports, the crossbars have tabs for mounting four in the front and two in the back. Black powder-coated to prevent corrosion, this rack has a carrying capacity of 400 lbs highway or 150 lbs off road.
Price: $0.01 Pros: Solid and seems as if it can take a heavy load without issue. Cons: No way to take down top w/o taking off top. The paint is flaking off bad. The way you take it off can lead to come scratched pain by the windshield. Recommended? Yes
Comments: I have seen some other racks that have a way to pivot the cargo rack so that you can take the top down/up wihtout removing the entire cargo rack. That would have been nice.
The rack came wiht the Jeep when I purchased it so I did nto have to shell out for it, but for that price, I think it would have been good to build in some kind of easy on/off in consideration of the soft top.
