This complete multi-purpose base roof rack is for the 2007 to 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 4 Door hard top. Front crossbar must be removed to remove the Freedom Top roof sections.
The Thule AeroBlade load bars are strong, quiet and aerodynamic providing maximum capacity, no whistling or howling and low wind drag. The aluminum BoxBeam construction has a dedicated slot for foot attachment and a separate t-slot track for mounting certain carriers.
The Thule 300R Rapid Gutter Feet have thin rubber coated blades that rest down in the gutter and a rubberized bracket that tightens to the outside of the gutter. The Thule 300R Rapid Gutter feet are strong galvanized steel with a durable black powder-coat finish.
The large turn knob allows for easy, tools-free installation and quick adjustment or removal. Thule lock cylinders are highly recommended due the obvious method and ease of removal. If you choose not to use lock cylinders, leave the lock housing plug in place for the turn knob to function properly.
The weight capacity for this application is 165 pounds evenly distributed. The load bar length is 60 inches plus 1-3/4 inches for both end caps (total 61-3/4 inches). Distance from the front load bar to the rear is variable up to 40 inches apart, center to center.
Installation notes: Position Gutter Foot at AeroBlade underbar slide scale number 59 for quick bar centering. Keep doors open during installation. Watch the inside edges of the Gutter Foot to guard against contact or scratching of the hardtop during installation. Review the instruction manual below for complete technical details.
