If you're considering a Roof Rack for your Jeep Cherokee XJ (models without triangular roof rails) to mount a Roof Top Tent (RTT) or a sleeping / spotting / utility platform to...but are concerned about the increased height that a typical roof rack requires, we have just the solution for you: Our new Hard-KOR Jeep Cherokee XJ Platform Roof Rack gives you a flat platform that mounts securely to your factory rain gutters, and adds only 1.5 inches of increased height, allowing you to park in your garage, or in parking structures, with no problem at all.
Dimensions are generous, at approximately 73" x 50" x 1.5" at it's tallest and widest
Here are some of the many benefits to the Hard-KOR Platform Roof Rack:
Toss some Rubbermaid containers on top, and lash them down with straps and a webbed cargo net for long road trips with the family.
Toss your oversized spare tire on the roof, and get it out of the cargo area with the INCLUDED tire mounting plate and hardware.
Mount your roof-top tent (RTT) easily to the Roof Rack Platform, which allows it to be removed more easily than the permanent roof mounts.
Or, for a low-buck RTT option, pitch your current tent on top of the platform, keeping you off the ground, and away from critters.
Rack comes complete with 4 light tabs on the front, as well as two tabs in the rear for mounting lights or antennas.
