I must have watched all the videos on YouTube about this rack platform and read all the articles I could find to make sure this was going to work and be worth the money. Thankfully it is! It took a few hours to get it all bolted together and up there. Its heavy for one person to lift so get some help! My neighbor was king enough to help me lift it up there.
It is $$$$ but its worth every penny! The Rhino-Rack back bone rails replace the factory OEM roof rails and in my opinion look really smooth, also low profile. Then I added the pioneer platform 76"x49". It comes with all the nuts, bolts, washer needed and decent instructions. I ordered from rackoutfitters.com which gave me a fair price and free shipping.
Hope the pictures help explain better than I can. FYI, I am selling my 2016 Limited factory rails on eBay if anyone is interested. Factory Roof Rails Jeep Renegade 2016- | eBay

This will work for my daily work needs, ladders, my advertising sign and other misc long items. Also it will come in handy for a run to Lowes or Home Depot for lumber etc...
And cant wait to use it for car camping/soft-roading/exploring in the mountains we live in here in Western NC.

West of Asheville in a town called Waynesville.
Ooh, that is a beautiful area. Was just I'm Asheville celebrating my 30th anniversary. My first two children were born in Murphy, NC so I have been all over that area. I bet you could find some awesome trails there.

For sure we have trails and dirt roads forever. Just need to get them BF Goodrich KO2’s first! 😎

In your research did you compare it with the Gobi? I really like the rails, curious how it compares to the Gobi for mounting? It looks like they don’t really cover the old body channels like the Gobi?

Overall I like that sleek look more than the Gobi and I imagine there isn’t a 6 to 8 week lead time!

Great looking setup!!

I did not even know about gobi. I just looked them up and they do look awesome, love that back ladder too. True the shipping time was short for the rhino rack, it came from TX and took about 5 days to arrive. The thing I like most about the rhino rack is the simplicity. I can choose where to mount things and if I don’t want anything up there it’s just flat.

Looked on the site and it’s back ordered now. Guess you bought the last one! Regardless you have given me something to look into before I commit to Gobi. Thanks for the pics and info! Keep us updated on how it works as you use it.
