2012 Jeep Wrangler JKU roof rack for kayaks

Hi,

I need a roof rack to carry 110-120 lbs of Kayaks and cradles.

Most of the ones I have seen have a 90lb limit.

Can anyone recommend ones that can carry this weight?

Thanks,

I purchased a Barricade exoskeleton roof rack.

It's a bit heavier and more rack than what I needed, but gutter racks did not have enough weight capacity and did not want to drill in to the roof.

Take a look at Body Armor racks - rated for 350 pounds I believe. I have one on my 2004 TJ and it works well - was a bit tricky to install but once done it's pretty solid.

Thanks both,

The Barricade rack is due here tomorrow. It will be a few weeks before I can get it installed though.

That's the barricade rack fitted. The stock rear bumper needed some modifications.

Next is to fit the cross bars and kayak cradles.

Got the rack roof bars and Yakima Jaylow cradles mounted.

Fitting this has been a pain but a great learning experience. Without my buddies shop lift it would have been near impossible.
