    Product Questions

    Will a 9.5' sit on top kayak fit OK on the half rack?
    Question by Franck
    Our half rack option for the JKU (KRJW021T) with our Pro Kayak holder (RRAC051) will work with your 9.5' Kayak but because the Rack is mounted on the back of the vehicle, the kayak overhang at the rear of the car.
    Answer by Front Runner
    Cann the Besttop Sunrider for hard top work with this roof rack?
    Question by Toby
    Great question! We haven't seen our rack system installed on this top, but after some research, it doesn't seem like the top would interfere with 1/2 rack system.
    Answer by Front Runner
    Once the rack is installed and you remove the rack from the hard top for daily driving, are there still pieces of the mount you need to leave on top or plugs for the existing holes?
    Question by Braden Anderson
    Hi! You may find that keeping the rack on for daily driving is not only convenient but also looks amazing too! Should you ever want to remove the rack, the entire mount is removable and the kit comes with plugs for existing holes.
    Answer by Front Runner
    Does the rack have to be on all the time, or can the mounting brackets be left in place with the rack itself off untill needed for use.
    Question by Pete
    You can absolutely remove the Rack Tray whenever you desire and leave the mounting brackets in place. Although, this is one good-looking rack so you might want to leave it on!
    Answer by Front Runner
    Hi guys,

    Will a Maggiolina roof tent fit on the half rack on a 4 door JK? I don't want additional storage, just a secure mount for the tent.

    Thanks
    Question by Alistair
    You will need the full size rack for that tent.
    Answer by Front Runner
    Will this rack work with soft top?
    Question by Rob Bowman
    No, The rack will not work with the soft top because the soft top uses the same tie in points as the rack does. You can use the rack without the soft top or with a hardtop.
    Answer by Front Runner
    Weight capacity of slimline on a jeep rubicon
    Question by Joma Manas

    The Front Runner Rack Tray is rated to carry 300kgs/660lbs. But we do recommend referring to the vehicle manufacturers guide as to what would be a safe load rating for your particular vehicle's roof. It's also important to take into consideration the driving conditions, load arrangement, and speeds as this will determine how much you can carry. With all that legal mumbo jumbo out of the way, rest assured, this rack on the Jeep JK is STRONG. Have you seen the video on YouTube where we hang the jeep from a construction crane by the rack?
    Answer by Front Runner
    How high is this from the roof?
    Question by Stanley Illman
    The measurement from the apex of the roof to the top of the rack is 120mm.
    Answer by Front Runner
    Would it be feasible to mount a 11foot SUP board on this rack?
    Question by Lee toowey
    The rack would only be 53" long and your 11' SUP would overhang quite a bit. We have had customers in the past do something similar, but we would recommend supporting the large portion over hanging your vehicle somehow to prevent any damage to your SUP while transporting.

    Best Regards,
    Bryan
    Answer by Front Runner
    Does the slimline ll racks come with slats and if so how many or do you have to buy them separate.
    Question by William Carver
    Yes, this rack will come with a total of 7 slats total.
    Answer by Front Runner
    Is it possible to remove the hardtop once the rack is installed?
    Question by Mark
    It's easiest to take the tray off and then slide the top off. It takes another 15-20 minutes longer then just removing the top.
    Answer by Front Runner
    What is the load capacity of this Rack? I need something that can support roughly 600 lbs of tent and people.
    Question by tsanantonio
    The Slimline II Tray is rated at 600 lbs. With the Extreme mounting solution you've got a rack that is the strongest available. Have you seen this video?: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tz-Zw5cyBEo
    Answer by Front Runner
    Is the half rack also rated at 600 lbs?
    Question by Searsje
    Yes it is, the full and half racks share the same components and mounting points (just in the rear only). Thank you.
    Answer by Front Runner
    If you install this on your hardtop, can you still remove the hardtop easily?
    Question by Matt
    You will need to unbolt the rack from the interior mounts of course, but it is not difficult to do. Thank you
    Answer by Front Runner
    How many inches does this add to the top of the hardtop? I need to know for clearance purposes. So the measurement I am looking for is from the hardtop to the top of this rack, how many inches is it.
    Question by Matt
    The hardtop slopes towards the front, but it you measure at the highest point, the rack extends 4.75" off the top of the roof to the top of the rack.
    Answer by Front Runner
    Can i fix this roof rack on jk 2doors 2013 instead of 4doors
    Question by alsaadi
    This rack was developed specifically for the 4-door JK, and will not work on the 2-door model. We do however offer a 2-door specific rack kit.
    Answer by Front Runner
    Hello, does a Featherlite Roof-Tent fit on this rack?
    And if -yes- is there still some space left on the rack?
    Question by Pol Clement
    Yes it does, however the tent will take up just about the entire half rack, not leaving much room for other accessories. For the best of both worlds, you may want to consider our full rack system.
    Answer by Front Runner

    Customer Reviews

    Good Rack but dissappointed cannot "simply" be extended Review by JKRider
    Good instructions and a solid rack but very disappointed that you cannot convert the half rack into a full rack(as led to believe) with your current side profiles but need to buy whole new full rack in essence. Pretty stupid..... (Posted on 28/04/2017)
    Best investment I've done on my rig so far Review by DRod
    Very happy with overall quality of the product, very well engineered, light weight and capable. From time to time people will always ask me about it. The amount of accessories its a big plus, one place for all overlanding needs. Just got the roof tent and could not be more pleased 10/10 would recommend (Posted on 24/03/2017)
    Best Roofrack for the JkU Review by Jules
    Love this bit of kit! Looks awesome and I see people sneaking a look at what the brand is. Solid, sleek and compliments my Jeep to a tee. Some of the other racks I considered just don't have the quality of finish I wanted. Accessorie range is awesome and I'm just getting going now. Great stuff! (Posted on 17/12/2016)
    FrontRunner products are QUALITY!! Review by Mikey G
    I have the FrontRunner JK Rear Cargo Slide, The JK 4-Door Interior rack and just had the roof rack installed and all 3 are solid and very usable. Great products!! (Posted on 15/12/2016)
