How much height (in inches) do these add to the top of the hard top? Would a Wrngler Rubicon with stock 33" wheels still be under 6'8"? Thx!
This rack will add 4.5 inches to your vehicle height.
I have a 2015 Wrangler Unlimited and would like to use these crossbars on my hardtop to transport a 12 foot 65lb kayak. Is this unit safe enough to do this since they are applied with a temporary vs permanent application?
Consider the weight of the brackets added to the weight of the kayak. The 88 lbs is pretty firm on the limit. Space the crossbars far enough apart and make sure that the front and rear are rigged down well to reduce fore/aft rocking and you should be fine
What is the actual HEIGHT and DEPTH of THE BAR? I ask because I need to know if they're compatible with Yakima or Thule add-ons. Thank you.
Any of the Vortex bars will be 3-1/8" wide x 1-3/16" tall
Can I use the Mopar TCCAN859 Rooftop Cargo Carrier with these?
Yes, they are compatible.
Can I install this back further so that both bars are on the rear part of the hard top, thus allowing me to leave it one while having the sun rider front panels off?
Yes, these can be installed anywhere along the gutter.
I have a 15 JKU with a hardtop that I put on in the winter months, and during the summer months I use the Bestop Trextop NX. The trextop comes with door surrounds and therefore a drip rail. Would this rack clip into the aftermarket top also? It would be nice to find a roof rack solution that fits both options.
No, this is not compatible with any softop applications.
Can I use the Rhino roof rack vortex SG 2 bar roof rack with the hard top off or no top?
No, they attach to the hardtop
