Kevin’s Grand Cherokee Roof Racks for ’99-’04 WJ Grand Cherokee and ’93 – ’98 ZJ Grand Cherokee (with partial mesh floor to enjoy your moonroof, or full mesh floor for maximum capacity)
Are you looking for a roof rack for your Jeep that looks great and works even better? I’ve just released my brand-newly designed, round tube version of the old-fashioned roof utility rack that every Jeep owner needs at one point in time or another. This this thing is built like no other…sturdy, solid, and lightweight (59 – 68 lbs depending on version). I’ve over-built it so that you’ll have room for suitcases, Rubbermaid containers, your Hi-Lift jack, spare tire, and whatever else you need to fit up there. It also offers many exclusive features that no other roof rack does; one being the steel mesh flooring is either left open above the moonroof area to let the sunshine stream in, or a fully-welded mesh floor version is available for those without moonroofs.This is the ONLY roof rack on the market built *SPECIFICALLY* to mount on the roof of Jeep Grand Cherokees! The rest are just generic roof racks, with bolt-on mounts that happen to fit also…they are not racks designed with our fully-welded and integrated Grand Cherokee roof mounts!
It features four built-in forward-facing light tabs, two built-in rearward facing light tabs, includes an integrated Hi-Lift mount on one side, shovel mount on the other, and an integrated spare tire mount that will accommodate up to a 37″ tire up top!

I currently have a mounting system for all models of WJ and ZJ, and the later model XJs with the newer triangular style roof rails (~’92 and up?).
This rack is EXTREMELY labor intensive to build with it’s numerous compound bends and fish-mouthed tube angles, and would run you well over a thousand bucks to replicate it at a local tubing-fab shop IF you already had the mechanical drawings complete (which would cost you several hundred bucks also). To keep the cost down, I’m running these in batches, so chances are I’ll have them in stock when you’re ready to order.
Our price INCLUDES mounting hardware to attach it to your factory roof rails at NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE, while some of the other guys charge upwards of $75 for roof mounts (SURE, like you could somehow use the rack WITHOUT mounting it, LOL). If you compare apples to apples with other racks, I KNOW you’ll find that this is an EXTREMELY fair price, carries Kevin’s typical reputation for overbuilding, and looks cool and unique enough to get your rig noticed on the trail AND around town. It’s a KevinsOffroad.com exclusive…no one else has anything that looks like this or offers these features, especially at this price. Dimensions are approximately 73″ x 40″ x 7″ at it’s tallest and widest. It will extend upward about 7″ taller than the top of your factory roof rail (without a spare tire mounted on top), and 1″ MORE than the WIDTH of the tire (laying down) at the center of the rack, if you want to measure it out for your garage.
On a difficulty scale from 1-10, the install is a 3. The first time to mount it up will probably take you an hour or so, but after the mounts are securely in place, it’ll take one guy about 10 minutes (easier with a helper) to unbolt the rack and take it off / put it back on the roof if you needed to remove it for some reason (clearance or whatever).
Since almost everything is included already, the only upgrade you need to consider is whether you always want to keep the wire mesh flooring open above the moonroof area for an unobstructed view of the stars, or if you want to add an additional 7.25 sq. ft. of roof-top stowage capacity.
