Jeep Cherokee Gutter Mount Safari Roof Rack | XJ Roof Rack
***This version is specifically designed for XJ's without factory roof rack rails. Please see our other listings if you have existing roof rails***
Please note: Each rack is hand built in Phoenix, AZ and current estimated wait time for new roof rack orders is about 10-12 weeks from date of order due to fabrication volume. We sincerely apologize for the unprecedented delay, and are trying to resolve this as quickly as possible.
Are you searching for a Jeep Cherokee roof rack for your 1984-2001 XJ Cherokee that looks great and works even better? Are you lacking roof rails? Then check out KOR exclusive Hard-KOR Cherokee XJ Roof Rack, Safari-style! We've just updated our round tube version of the old-fashioned Cherokee roof rack that every Jeep owner needs.
Introducing the Hard-KOR Safari-style Jeep Cherokee Roof Rack...
This thing is built like no other...sturdy, solid, and lightweight (59 - 68 lbs depending on version). We'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. Furthermore, it offers many exclusive features that no other XJ roof rack does;
- The steel mesh flooring can be 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 XJ roof rack on the market built *SPECIFICALLY* to mount on the roof of Jeep Cherokee XJ built from 1995-2001. The others are just generic roof racks, with bolt-on mounts that happen to fit Cherokees also...they are not XJ Roof Racks. All of our Cherokee Roof Racks are designed with fully-welded and integrated XJ Cherokee roof rack mounts! -
Jeep Cherokee XJ Roof Rack - Safari Style
Our customers LOVE them...we've gotten a lot of positive feedback on the design and the functionality.
This listing is for the gutter mount option, which includes 6 HD mounting brackets. We also have a mounting system available for the later model XJ Cherokees with the newer triangular style roof rails ('95-'01) in another listing.
- Four built-in forward-facing light tabs
- Two built-in rearward facing light tabs
- An integrated Hi-Lift mount on one side
- A shovel mount on the other
- An integrated spare tire mount that will accommodate up to a 44" tire up top.
Our rack design is EXTREMELY labor intensive to build with it's numerous compound bends and fish-mouthed tube angles. It 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).

Our price INCLUDES mounting hardware to attach it to your factory rain gutters at NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE. Some of the other guys charge upwards of $75 for roof mounts (SURE, like you could somehow use the rack WITHOUT mounting it, LOL). Comparing apples to apples with other racks, I KNOW you'll find that this is an EXTREMELY fair price.
This rack looks cool and unique enough to get your rig noticed on the trail AND around town, & carries Kevin's typical reputation for overbuilding. 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 78" x 51" 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. The upper rails have a generous 48" between them left/right.
The only upgrade you need to consider is...Moonroof or no moonroof? You may want to keep the wire mesh flooring open above the moonroof area for an unobstructed view of the stars (3/4 Mesh Floor). Or, you may want to add an additional 7.25 sq. ft. of roof-top stowage capacity (Full Mesh Floor).

All racks are shipped bare steel by default, but we are able to have the racks powder coated (in semigloss black only) for you prior to shipment for an additional $200. Typically, you should be able to get a rack coated at a shop local to you for a similar cost, and we generally recommend this to avoid damage during the shipping process. However, we have received an enormous number of requests, and are offering coatings again on a trial basis.
Price includes freight shipping to a commercial US address. If you want it shipped to your residence, no problem...but consequently, there's a $75 surcharge charged by the freight company.
*Does not include $75.00 residential address delivery surcharge. If you do not have a commercial location to accept delivery, one trick is to pick it up at the local terminal, so you can avoid this charge.
INTERNATIONAL FREIGHT SHIPMENTS: Please e-mail us for special instructions for International customers!! The above DOES NOT APPLY to International Shipments, only Domestic.
