Where for $74?

Amazon warehouse deals. Normally $93 but it was an open box unit.

Here's the Highland/Reese Uventure rack




It's off the Jeep now otherwise I'd get a better pic for you.

Thats fine man, thanks. Cant decide between the Rola or the Uventure, I feel like the small lack in length on the Uventure looks a bit odd with a the WJ's length

In those pics I had it up too far on the rails. Once moved back to the last hole on the roof rails it looks a lot more proportionate to the size.

I have a smittybilt defender rack and I really like it but it's pricy. It comes one peice welded together so you don't have to worry about it rusting from the inside out like the Rola rack.
