Installation and Preparation: Strengthening Your Wrangler's Roof

You have the option of having it professionally installed at a Yakima rack outfitter, such as Rack Attack, or taking the DIY route if you're comfortable doing so.
Track Connectionsto Dropracks
Connect your Dropracks to the RibCage using track connections from reputable brands like Yakima, Rhino, or our "Tower 1." This ensures a robust and reliable setup for your Wrangler.
