New Roofrack for Wranglers

Just a heads-up: Body Armor is coming out with a roofrack to fit JK's and TJ's --- no drilling and it looks pretty sturdy.
I have no affiliation with the company but I've been looking for a roofrack for my JK Sahara for a while and haven't liked what's out there yet....

PDF is too large to upload; all my attempts to save the pictures in an uploadable format have failed...

They're supposed to email some pictures today.

I have the WB fastback model. It's under a year old and the finish isn't holding up well. I'm planning on pulling it off to coat it with an anti-rust product. I had to pull it off once to fix a few bends from an encounter with a tree

BTW, I like the roof rack too. I just hope it can be used with any rear bumper.

50ccmx..... welcome aboard. You found the right forum.. beware of the "other JK forum"

Looks to me those doors are probably Body Armor rock doors.

The half doors are Body Armor too and will be released when they get the roofrack out.

Not too impressed with the rack, but the doors look pretty good!

I dont have much use for a rack, but it appears that these companies are putting some nice things out. Now as far as the 1/2 doors go, I need a set of those, but I hope the price is right. It just seems like everything that comes out for the JK has big price increase. In this economy that is not fairing well.

Racks always look weird on Jeeps to me. They look cool on other 4x4s but not Jeeps for some reason.

I like it, but 2 issues for me...
1 AEV snorkel interference
2 I'd have to cut it and make it fit the lines of my ORH top


would be kinda cool to bring a center vertical down between the doors and bolt it under the tub or soemthing, then you'd have a good start on an exo-skel

Except for the .095" tubing that is used.
