Re: Roof Basket

I have a surco rack that I used on my ZJ. I love the way it looks and works. I contacted Surco if they have mounting adaptors/hardware that will work on the WK2 and they said nope. Too bad... I really like the way it looks and works. I am thinking of making my own brackets that will make it work on my WK2.

I like the Rocky Road rack as well... if I didnt have the Surco rack, I would have gone with that.

Cheers,
-A

Unhappy Re: Roof Basket

I've always liked Kevin's Offroad safari rack but he doesn't make them anymore, said the volume was to low.

Re: Roof Basket

I'm also looking for one for my girlfriend. Anyone else have baskets now? Do you have to get the cross bars to mount it one or can they mount to the factory rails? My truck has q towers on it but I want to keep hers looking clean and not have a basket sticking out a foot above her jeep haha. I know that a company makes some for the LR3 rovers that mount pretty clean but I cannot recall what they're called

RRO and garvin are some of your cleaner looking baskets. Also some of the pricier choices. I doubt you'll find anything that hugs the roofline super tight since they want to allow room for sunroof operation.
Front Runner Outfitters makes some quality racks too, but currently, none for the WK2. They are big in the Wrangler world, however.

Is there any way to mount a load warrior without having to have cross bars

I don't believe there is a way to mount without crossbars on a standard basket like the load warrior. I'm happy with my Kuat Vagabond. It has a lower profile than the load warrior and the Thule Moab.

Re: Roof Basket

I've been working with Gobi & trying to figure out a roof basket for my '14 JGC Overland. They replied right away to my inquiries - great customer service.

Here are some teaser photo's they sent along:

I ordered a Gobi for my '13 Trailhawk last week and since I'm an hour south of their shop they'll install the rack for free I just pay for the led wiring. It's pricey but I went with the Gobi because they remove the stock rails and use the existing mounting holes. Plus instead of the rack being attached on top of cross rails, the cross rails are built into the top of the basket making for a much lower profile. It also has a removable insert to allow for single pane sunroof use and still have basket storage space. I'll add pics when it's installed the end of March.

Although they are VERY pricey, I am considering a Gobi rack. Can you post photos of how they did the wiring? By that I mean, how the wiring entered the GC. That would be a big help.
