I have a 2014 JK 4 door and I want to install both the Frontrunner tray and shelf. In an earlier question, you stated that the clearance between the tray and the shelf is 21.5. Do you know whether anybody have successfully installed a ARB 50 fridge in this configuration. The ARB fridge is listed as 20" high, so it sounds like a good fit. Also, Do you know whether the ARB 50 fridge actually fits on the tray between the rear seat and the rear door, or will it require to be mounted sideways.
Question by Louis
Yes, The ARB 50 fridge will fit in this configuration and will not need to be mounted sideways.
What is the range of measurements from the floor of the jeep JK to the underside of the front runner rack? Can the rack be adjusted such that it is even with the top of the back seat (not including headrest)of a 2007 JKU?
Question by Mike
The distance from the floor to the underside of our interior shelf would be 21.5" total. Unfortunately, you would not be able to raise the shelf higher because the shelf would make contact with the rear roll bar.
After reading the installation instructions it sounds like the shelf would need to be removed every time I want to take the hard top off. How hard is it to take the hard top off with this shelf installed?
Question by Dom
Our interior tray uses the same mounting points as the hardtop. Removing the tray is necessary when removing the hardtop, but the removal isn't to difficult, and should not add much time to the entire process.
Hello, I noticed that you said the height of the rack is adjustable, but I don't see what those heights are. I will not be utilizing any bottom shelf in my Wrangler and simply need to verify that I could fit a minimum 18" tall box under the rack if it were sitting on the floor of the back cargo area. Thanks!
Question by Jordan
The interior tray mounts have slotted holes to adjust the height slightly and make sure the tray is level. This adjustment is only about 1 inch.
I'm looking at outfitting my 5 dr JK with the lower slide and upper shelf, what is the clearance between the tray of the slide and the bottom of the shelf? I am looking at bigger fridges that are quite tall.
Question by Gord
From the top of the slide to the bottom of the interior tray is about 21.5 inches.
Is the interior rack easily removed without having to remove all the mounting stuff? I could see wanting to easily install/remove depending on the trip and packing needs.
For the most part it is easy to remove yes. Some of the mounting hardware will need to be removed and most of the tray can come out in one piece. Unless you have a really large item to put back there the added flexibility of the tray will make packing for trips much more economical.
I've had this rack for a few weeks now. We've used it daily to haul camping gear, pro audio equipment, guitars, groceries, kids' stuff, etc. in the back of our Jeep. This is a solid rack and worth considering if you're looking for such a rack.
Pros: It can handle some serious weight. Once it's installed it is firmly in place. I know I've had about 200 lbs of gear up there, and it handled it like a champ; no sagging in the middle, no shifting, nothing but a solid place to put gear. The tie addition of eyelets for tie down points makes this even better. The real pro is the ability to put an ARB 50qt fridge under it.
Cons: The packaging for shipping was less than desirable. Mine came scratched up because pieces came loose in transit and were able to slide around in the box. Front Runner was semi-responsive about this. The reality is that this is going to get scratched up during its use, but I'd like that to come on my own terms and not new out of the box. My only other complaint is how easily some of the rubber comes out of the t-slot. If you slide gear in, it can catch the edge of the rubber beading and pull it out making gear sit unevenly, and then you have to pull gear out to reinstall the beading then reload your gear.
On the whole, we're happy with this and would buy it again. It suits our needs and does what we need/want it to do. Bottom line is it makes the cargo space in our Jeep that much more useable, which is its best asset. (Posted on 1/29/2017)
