Jeep Grand Cherokee ZJ Roof Rack - Safari Style
Jeep Grand Cherokee ZJ Roof Rack (Safari-style) fits '93 to '98 ZJ Grand Cherokees
Are you searching for a roof rack for your Grand Cherokee that looks great and works even better? Then check out a KOR exclusive, the Jeep Grand Cherokee ZJ Roof Rack - Safari-style! We've just released our 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 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. And, our customers LOVE them...so far we've gotten a lot of positive feedback on the design and the functionality.
Note: If you own a 5.9L ZJ, your Jeep uses different roof rails than the 4.0L and 5.2L ZJs. When placing your order, please make sure to select BOTH the floor coverage you want AND your mounting hardware. Otherwise, you may end up with the wrong mounting hardware.
This is the ONLY roof rack on the market built *SPECIFICALLY* to mount on the roof of Jeep Grand Cherokee ZJ's! 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! We currently have a mounting system for all models of WJ and ZJ, and the later model XJs with the newer triangular style roof rails ('95 and up).
Here's a video of an installation of our Safari rack on a Cherokee (Grand Cherokee similar):
This rack is EXTREMELY labor intensive to build with its 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 43" 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.
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 (3/4 Mesh Floor), or if you want to add an additional 7.25 sq. ft. of roof-top stowage capacity (Full Mesh Floor). You will select this when placing your order.
Each Rack is hand-built, and we can only complete one Rack every 3 days.
We knocked down the price $70 to make them a bit more affordable, and stopped sending them out powdercoated...they are shipped bare steel now, which also allows them to ship a week and a half quicker as well. You should be able to get it powdercoated (or painted) any color you like, locally, for a few bucks less than that discount.
Note: Due to its size, it can't be shipped UPS or FedEx Ground, so Truck Freight is the only option, unless you want to plan a vacation to Phoenix, Arizona. The pallet will leave our warehouse (85043) and be shipped to your business address. Freight typically ranges from $110 to $175 depending on how far you are from Phoenix, AZ. If you want it shipped to your residence, that's OK, but there is a $104 surcharge charged by the freight company. Sample cities:
City Distance Transit Charges*
Los Angeles, CA 400 mi 2 days $165*
Denver, CO 800 mi 2 days $180*
Seattle, WA 1400 mi 5 days $210*
Chicago, IL 1700 mi 4 days $230*
Miami, FL 2300 mi 5 days $250*
Portland, ME 2700 mi 5 days $250*
*Does not include $104.00 residential address delivery surcharge. This is charged by the freight carrier directly, and we will do everything we can to work out a commercial address to deliver it to 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 48-State Domestic.
If our freight cost on the rack is more expensive than the estimated shipping that you pay when you complete your order, I'll eat the difference if it's less than $25. However, be prepared that I may hit you up for some add'l funds after you place your order if it's more than $25. This extra amount is not normally more than a few bucks or so, but it depends on your location. You always have the ability to cancel your order if you don't like the Motor Freight cost, too, so there is very little risk by ordering online and not having the freight charges be accurate.
Note: If you own a 5.9L ZJ, your Jeep uses different roof rails than the 4.0L and 5.2L ZJ's. When placing your order, please make sure to select BOTH the floor coverage you want AND your mounting hardware. Otherwise, you may end up with the wrong mounting hardware.
