Body Armor Roof Rack question

Does anybody have these two parts?

Body Armor 5124 - Body Armor Cargo Basket for Body Armor Roof Rack Bases - Quadratec

Body Armor JK-6125 - Body Armor Roof Rack Base Kit for 07-10 Jeep Wrangler JK 2-Door - Quadratec


I'm jus curious if the parts have to be installed together? or can they be seperate on the roof? and with them on is a hard top easily removed??

thanks,
Mikey Pants

I know the OP is from many moons ago, but just in case anyone is looking at racks, thinking of the Body Armor one, and does a search on Body Armor TJ-6125 here, I wanted to throw in my 2c. First, it is made of very beefy tubing that has a decent powder coat on it. If comes very well packaged with each tube individually wrapped. On the negative side, the mounting bolts are pretty wimpy and you will need to sub in some bigger washers to prevent the cheapo ones from going into the holes. That is no big deal. The big deal to me was two things. First, the rear mounts, which use the existing bumper bolts, are not drilled correctly. Meaning, they are center to center closer than the bumper bolts, they have to be moved about an eighth of and inch out via grinding or something like that. Second, the rear light bar (top rear) bolt holes did not line up with the pipes coming up from the rear mounts. These are a slide together fit and the holes as delivered are off by about an eighth of an inch. So, again, a bit of reaming to make them fit.

Now that ours is on, it looks pretty darn sharp and I am pleased. I just wanted to make future buyers aware that they are some manufacturing issues that will need to be dealt with if all of them are like mine. Oh, one last thing, mine did not come with instructions so I had to get them online.
