JKU Soft Top Soft Roof Racks


Wanting to try something different I've recently joined the JKU (Overland) fraternity (came from GC WK2 Overland & Prado in that order).

JKU takes some getting used to but getting there and really enjoying it.

I'm looking for a practical solution for carrying a surfboard or 2 with soft top up but without going all-out with various metal rack combo's on the market, this would just be overkill for what I need.

Has anyone tried using soft racks like THESE on their soft tops? I think I already know the answer given the plastic door frame used with the soft top.

Apart for ramming the boards through the rear can anyone offer a simple solution?

I don't plan fitting the hard top for a few months.

You should call and ask them, or if there is a dealer near you try them on. I think with the rollcage you should be ok. I am not sure how much stress it would put on the soft top and the best way to find out would be to ask for a "test drive".

Re: JKU Soft Top Soft Roof Racks

Did you ever find a solution? I ordered a hard top but don't want the expense of a huge metal rack just to drive around with my stand up board. I'm curious as to what you found. I've looked into the link below or I think I may just use the board pads I have and strap it to the roll bars without the top on. I don't know how long your board is. Mine is 12ft so I can't just shove it in the back.
