Sherpa Roof Racks anyone?

Considering buying a Sherpa roof rack 11703.02 for my 2013 Jeep Wrangler 4 door. Any feedback of current owners and what are the best cross bars to buy that are compatible to accommodate kayaks and SUP's?

Well I don't have much to add other than I bought one, it was very poorly engineered sold it 3 months later. Upon unboxing it I realized the windshield bar was not welded properly had to fight like hell to get a replacement from R/R. Got the new one it was not much better, rack started rusting within 2 weeks and the finishing was chipping off.

I suggest looking at a different rack but with out spending 1k it is goign to be hard to get a quality rack.

Thank you Haficon for the feedback. You definitely have got me to rethink the purchase.

i think the best rack out there is the rhino rack. (the AEV is suposed to be derived fro rhino but havent seen one in person).

I am looking for a roof rack that I can use with BOTH my Soft top AND Hard top. Do you know if the Rhino rack will accommodate this need?
