I bought a new Wrangler about 3 weeks ago and the first course of action was to get a kayak on it. Racks are expensive but but other cheaper alternatives have their limitations like not being able to put the top up,windows up, clamp to the body etc.
So a friend sends me a link on CL for a Kargomaster rack with Yakima bars for $85 that is complete with every nut and bolt. Thats a savings of about $500 I was about to drop!
Long story short, it was for a 4 door so I ordered the 2 door bars from Kargo Master for $90 bucks. Of course they didn't fit. They were the right length but the OD of the pipe didn't slip into the hoops. Bad machining. (I hope they will take retunrs on Monday) So I took my 4 door pipes to a motorcycle shop and they cut and welded the 4 door bars down to the right length. Finally everything went on.
A little spray paint and and elbow grease and I have about $200 bucks in the full setup. Can't wait to hit the river.
