Recommended Roof Rack and Basket for 2019 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Hard Top


Hey guys. So I have a 2019 Wrangler Unlimited hard top. Wanting to mounta roof basket on the vehicle. Do I need a roof rack first with crossbars? If so can you make a recommendation for both it and the basket? Thank you!


Expert Reply:

We do have a large selection of roof cargo baskets that will work great on your 2019 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited but first you will indeed need to add a roof rack system with crossbars to support the carrier.

For this I recommend the Thule Square Bar Rack because it will provide you with a sturdy system (165 pound weight capacity) and a rugged appearance that looks great on Jeep Wranglers. This system consists of # TH712500 for the two 60 inch Square Load Bars and # TH65JV for the Gutter Feet.

I have included an installation video that you can also check out.

Then for a cargo basket that will work great with this rack and your Jeep I recommend the Thule Canyon XT # TH859XT. This basket measures 49 inches long, 40 inches wide, 6 inches tall, and its tapered side walls allow for easier loading. Its sturdy steel construction ensures a long lifespan and the included fairing reduces wind drag and noise. You can pair it with some load straps like # TH523 to secure your cargo into place.

I have again included a short video demonstration on this cargo basket that you can take a look at.
