Best price on the part. Fast shipping. The install video made it a breeze. Rhino rack was a little lazy with the written directions and stamping all the parts. The etrailer video for 2015 JKU was needed. 831305

I love how this rack system uses the existing holes in the roof for mounting. Exactly what I was looking for. It makes for a very clean look. 819035

Review from a similar Backbone System in Roof Rack


The backbone rails look great! However, the instructions need to be revised to include information that is Armada specific. Instructions for removal of factory rack is not included and not available anywhere I could find on the internet. It’s almost impossible to remove the end caps on the factory rack without destroying the tabs that hold them in place. Also, the middle connection point of the backbone has 2 bolts, the factory rack only has one. However, the second hole is there but you must remove the trim piece that sits below the factory rack. It’s simple to remove and reinstall without damaging the clips. In order to make the backbone rails fit, you have to cut an additional couple of inches from the existing window in the trim piece in order to expose the second hole underneath. This is pretty simple with the right saw but some additional instructions on this would be helpful. Overall, this is a great product, just need to make customers aware of the extra steps needed on the Armada vs the installation on the Nissan Patrol. 697268
