Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Roof Rack Questions and Answers


  • Could 50 Inch Crossbars be Used on a Thule Roof Rack for a 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
  • It looks like it would be pretty close, but you should be able to go with the shorter 50 inch cross bar # THLB50 on the roof of your 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. If you check out the picture I attached you will see what the roof rack will look like with 58 inch crossbars. It would appear that there is more than 4 inches of overhang on either side of the Foot Pack # TH300 so the shorter bars would work. Ideally I would recommend the 58 inch bar and then trim it down for your application.

  • Yakima Roof Rack and Kayak Carrier Recommendation for a 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Hardtop
  • Yes you can. I checked with Yakima and the Yakima Raingutter 1A Towers part # Y00101 are confirmed to fit the factory hardtop of your 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. The recommended crossbars would be the part # Y00409. Yakima says this rack setup has a weight capacity of 100 lbs. You will need to consult your owners manual to determine what Jeep says is your roof capacity and be sure to go with the lower of the two as the overall capacity. For a carrier that can carry up to 2 kayaks...

  • Whispbar Roof Rack Recommendation for a 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
  • Yes, the Whispbar Roof Rack that consists of Rain Gutter Fit Kit # WB-K324 and Whispbar Flush Bar # WB-S11 that you referenced would work on your 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited with a hard top.

  • Longer Crossbar Recommendation for A Thule Roof Rack on a 2011 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
  • You can go with the longer crossbars like the 65 inch bars part # THLB65 with the Thule Gutter Feet part # TH300, but you will need to be aware of the wider bars. Specifically when driving close to a building or garage door, and when getting in and out of the vehicle.

  • Weight Bearing Ability of Yakima Rain Gutter Roof Rack on 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
  • Because the rain gutters on the Wrangler Unlimited aren't very strong, Yakima states that a roof rack constructed of their # Y00101 Towers and the # Y00409 58 inch crossbars cannot handle the weight of anything other than a ski/snowboard carrier like the # Y03081 PowderHound, which can handle 4 pairs of skis or 2 snowboards. A larger size is also available, part # Y03082 which can handle up to 6 pairs of skis or 4 boards. A cargo box would be too heavy, and would likely allow enough air...

  • Weight Capacity of Yakima Raingutter Mounted Roof Rack on 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
  • Per Yakima, a roof rack installed on the Wrangler Unlimited with the # Y00101 Drip Rail Towers will be limited to carrying snow products like ski and snowboard carriers. This is due to the limited capacity of the drip rails and the maximum bar spread of 24 inches. Yakima mentions a maximum allowable weight load of 100 lbs, including the weight of the rack itself.

  • Roof Rack and Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara
  • If your 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara has the factory hard top roof then I recommend Thule roof rack with square load bars using # THLB58 and gutter feet # TH300. Then you could use 3 of the Sidearm bike rack # TH594XT or for a fork mount rack, # TH526. However, with these or any 3 bike racks you will likely have to have the middle bike and rack facing backwards to get all of them to fit on the roof. Consult the owners manual and/or Jeep for the roof capacity prior to loading. If...

  • Roof Rack and Kayak Carrier for a 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Hard Top
  • The gutter mount roof racks such as the Yakima system are not likely to hurt the hard top roof on your 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. The rain gutter area where the feet install is the strongest part of the roof so no worries! Yakima indicates that with their rack you can only carry skis and snowboards. So I recommend the Thule roof rack using gutter feet # TH300 and load bars # THLB58. Then you can use a kayak carrier such as a the Hull-A-Port Pro, # TH835PRO. I have linked videos on...

  • Roof Rack for 2009 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited With Aftermarket Hard Top to Transport 2 Kayaks
  • The roof racks that we offer for the 2009 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, such as the Rhino-Rack System consisting of parts # RB1375B-2, # RLT500 and # RTC95JW, are intended for use on the OEM hardtop. This system when mounted on the factory hardtop has a maximum cargo weight capacity of 65-lbs. This limit is not a function of the rack materials, but rather the capacity of the OEM roof, and therefore is the same for all other roof racks we offer for your Wrangler. Without knowing the brand...

  • Roof Rack And Kayak Carrier On 2008 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
  • The style roof rack for your 2008 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited depends on the roof style you have. If you have a soft top with no rails or crossbars, then the Bestop HighRock 4x4 Overhead Rack, part # B4141501 is the rack you need. This rack has a 150 lb weight capacity the crossbars can be adjusted to a maximum spread of 27 inches. I recommend the Yakima Kayak Stacker Roof Mounted Carrier System, part # Y04036. This secures to the crossbar of the rack and allows you to load 2 kayaks on...

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for a Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Hard Top
  • I do have some roof rack options that will work on your 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited hard top, but the SportRack Roof Rack part # SR1001 that you referenced is not a confirmed fit for your vehicle so I would not recommend it for you. I attached a link to a page that has all of the roof racks that are confirmed to fit your vehicle, but I think the closest rack that would fit would be the Thule Square Load Bar Roof Rack that consists of the following parts: Thule Square Load Bars #...

Whispbar has indicated that the recommended spread of these bars should be 27 inches due to the mounting location on your Jeep, and where it is supported the best. Whispbar has determined this spread and therefore it should be followed. This measurement is crucial when choosing corresponding roof rack...

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for a 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
  • We have a few different roof rack options for your 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. Two roof racks that I recommend looking at is the Yakima round bar roof rack or the Thule square bar roof rack systems for hardtops. It appears that your Jeep has a hardtop in the photo you provided.

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for a 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited With a Hard Top
  • The Thule Square Load Bar # THLB58 and # TH300 that you referenced will fit your 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. Advantages of the square bars are: they are economical, a fit for virtually any roof mount accessory and are made out of galvanized steel. This system consists of 1 set of the Thule Load Bars # THLB58 and 1 set of the Thule Gutter Feet # TH300.

  • Whispbar Roof Rack Recommendation for a 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
  • The Whispbar installation kit, # WB-K324, is listed as a fit for a 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited with a hard top. You will also need the feet and bars. For a streamlined OEM appearance I recommend the Whispbar Flush Bar Roof Rack # WB-S11. And for bars that stick out at the end instead of being integrated into the foot, go with # WB-S18.

  • What Roof Racks Fit 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited with Hard Top Roof
  • Roof racks for your 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Hardtop are available from Yakima and Thule. I have included a link to our product page that shows all four available rack systems for your Jeep. The main differences between the available racks are their crossbar spread (the distance between front and rear crossbars once mounted to your Wrangler) and the shapes of the crossbars themselves. A wider crossbar spread makes it easier to transport longer items. The wing-like aero shape crossbar...

  • Roof Rack System for 2008 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited with Factory Hardtop
  • According to Yakima, the drip rails on that factory hard top are not structural. When used in this installation, the crossbars are intended for use with skis or snowboards only. The maximum allowable load would be 6 skis or 4 snowboards. When used within this limited scope, the drip rail mounts will not damage the rain gutter or drip rail. If used for any other purpose, they would most likely be damaged. If you decide to install the Y00101 Raingutter Towers and 58 inch load bars, keep...

This rack will support up to 150 lbs and can be adjusted to a maximum crossbar spread of 27 inches. Most Thule kayak carriers require a minimum crossbar spread of 24 inches.

Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Watersport Carriers Questions and Answers


  • Carrying Hobie Mirage Oasis Tandem Kayak on 2008 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited with and without Hard Top
  • For when you have the hard top on your 2008 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited I recommend Thule roof rack # TH300 and # THLB58. This roof rack will provide a nice bar spread, 48 inches between the bars, to support the Hobie Mirage Oasis tandem kayak. However, the capacity of the roof racks for your Jeep is only 65 pounds because the rain gutters the feet mount in are not structural components of the roof rack. To carry the 89 to 115 pound kayak you would need a third element, the Thule Goalpost...

Although Thule does not specifically apply wind ratings to their kayak carriers, it was suggested that the J-style that you are using would likely be a best option. After discussing your safety concerns with one of their technical staff we agreed that the simplest solution is the addition of supplementary tie-down straps....
