New Garvin Roof Rack

I was looking around for a roof rack and was wasn't happy with anything I was finding. I went to the guys at Garvin and they made some brackets to fit their racks on my new WK2. They are available for everyone now that they are R&Ded. If anyone is looking for a roof rack, I would highly recommend them. They are a great family run business and make excellent products. Here is the link to their website and pics of my new rack. The rack is about $500 and the accessories are extra.

Re: New Garvin Roof Rack

Looks great. I like how the cargo box sits low and flush with the rails and it seems the cross bars are removable.
Thanks for the report.

Re: New Garvin Roof Rack

WOW does that look cool! Every once in a while I drive on a dirt driveway. I wonder if I should get one of those?

Thank you. Yes they are removable, they just sell the brackets, you can put Thule or Yakima cross bars on there. There is also a spare tire bracket and gas can holder available.

Re: New Garvin Roof Rack

That is a cool rack. I like all the mounts for gear like the high lift jack and such. I did run across another slick roof rack on eBay a while back from URBAN OFFROAD. It completely replaces your stock rails. Check it out here:

Those are a Mopar accessory item. Get them from your dealer or on line from Mopar. Here is the link.
