Very nice. I'd be more than happy to demo it for you.

Re: Sneak Peak, XJ Low Profile Roof Rack

I'd be concerned about having only two mounting tabs per side. With a tire and hi-lift up there, I don't see it being able to handle much else without the risk of a weld failing or the tabs bending (to either side). Are the tabs reinforced, or is it just flat bar steel?

Re: Sneak Peak, XJ Low Profile Roof Rack

Can we get these a little custom? I would love it without a light bar and maybe an extra mounting tab on each side.

Re: Sneak Peak, XJ Low Profile Roof Rack

We can add more mounting tabs to the rack. We have been doing some testing with the rack and no issues yet. It is very ridgid with the two mounts, but it would not be much more to add a couple more mounts.

NoCoastFocus, Shoot us an email and we can discuss the rack and such. Info@jcroffroad.com

Re: Sneak Peak, XJ Low Profile Roof Rack

How much weight will it take before making contact with the roof? Any way to ad some sort of a wind shield to the front with cut outs for lights?

Re: Sneak Peak, XJ Low Profile Roof Rack

It looks like it could use a bit of reinforcement across the rack- looks like with a bigger tire or good bump it will flex a little too much and contact the roof as selarep was mentioning.
It also looks like the lights are very close to the roof - not such a bad thing, but again, load up the rack and they need to be aimed again. (it actually looks like the center lights are making contact)

Re: Sneak Peak, XJ Low Profile Roof Rack

400.00 FOR THAT? the outter clamp piece looks like the throw away piece of metal used in my SBS kit. you need at least 3 mounts per side and they need to be larger or rather wider to make more surface contact. I like the low profile look but i'd never trade my conferr for that. sorry to sound so critical but theres not much to that rack and for 399.00 plus 130.00 to ship it geez !
