Front Runner - Slimline II Full Rack - Track Mount for Jeep Wrangler JK 2007-2010 4DR
MOUNTING THE RACK TO MY HARDTOP? HOW DOES THIS WORK?
The use of track helps to spread the load evenly across the Jeep’s hard top.
The track is secured to the hard top using 12 special neoprene well nuts. These rubber nuts compress in the holes when tightened, which eliminates moisture seeping into the vehicle, and eliminates rattle by providing an insulated cushion. There are no bolts, nuts or other protrusions into the cab of the vehicle, since this unique installation takes advantage of the hollow space in the hard top. The weight of the rack and the accessories is evenly distributed across the roof top over the length of the all aluminum track.
For 2007-2010 Models only.
MORE ON THE SLIMLINE II
THE SLIMLINE II IS STRONG. Unlike most roof racks, the Slimline II was designed and built specifically for off-road use. Manufactured with high density aluminum and rated to carry up to 300kg/660 lbs * the Front Runner Slimline II can withstand the stress of any adventure.
The load support slats fit into a double walled aluminum extrusion channel on the side profiles and are secured via locking nuts. This patented design creates a joint support that is stronger than usual for a roof rack.
The Slimline II’s L-shaped rear and front slat design increases the strength of the entire rack, making the Slimline II the lightest and the strongest roof rack available.
(*the rack must always be loaded in accordance with the vehicle’s load rating specifications).
THE SLIMLINE II IS LIGHTWEIGHT. Aluminum is on average 30% lighter than steel. The new Front Runner all aluminum Slimline II patented design offers the best strength to weight ratio of any roof rack. The all aluminum Front Runner Slimline II can withstand greater stresses than the best all-steel roof rack at 1/3rd less the weight.
This entire kit for the JEEP JK 5DR (2166mm X 1425mm), eight (8) 50mm feet, two (2) pairs of custom fit tracks, as well as a wind deflector and all hardware weighs in at 82 lbs.
The extra strength and lightness of the Slimline II allows heavier loads to be carried on the roof of the vehicle more safely compared to comparable all-steel roof racks. Using the lighter Slimline II Roof Rack instead of a comparable all-steel rack can lessen your vehicle’s environmental impact, decrease vehicle wear, and improve gas mileage.
THE SLIMLINE II IS MODULAR. The Slimline II offers complete roof rack design flexibility. No other roof rack available today can be assembled by the customer to meet their specific needs.
More slats can be added to create a solid platform option for sleeping and/or sitting and enjoying sundowners. Slats can also be removed to create unobstructed access through a T-top or sunroof.
A full size rack can be quickly converted to a shorter rack with the purchase of a pair of shorter side rails. Or a smaller rack can be made longer with the purchase of longer side rails and additional slats.
Expedition style rails can even be effortlessly added to create the classic roof rack basket shape.
If any individual component of the roof rack becomes accidentally damaged, the part can be swapped out without having to replace the entire tray.
THE SLIMLINE II IS LOW PROFILE. Because of the unique T-slot mounting system, “basket style” side rails are not necessary. This flat deck design is unobtrusive and compliments the lines of today’s automobiles. Because there are no side rails, it’s easier and quicker to remove stored gear and it’s also possible to mount a roof top tent.
For city use, the lower profile affords easier access to underground car parks and garages. By minimizing the profile, there is less drag and noise than the typical roof rack - thereby increasing fuel efficiency and increasing performance.
To further reduce wind noise, all Front Runner Slimline II roof racks come with Wind Deflectors included.
THE SLIMLINE II IS DURABLE. A roof rack should last as long as your vehicle. Most roof racks available today will rust, chip, and/or crack after being exposed to the elements. The Front Runner Slimline II Roof Rack will take the abuse of the sun, the rain, the gear, as well as whatever condition road you drive on.
The Slimline II tray is manufactured in South Africa entirely with corrosion free aluminum while the mounting solutions are either all aluminum or stainless steel -- ensuring a lifetime of dependability.
As an extra layer of protection, all Front Runner Slimline II roof racks and mounting solutions are powder coated satin black with one of the industry’s most durable and lasting finishes - Akzonobel’s Interpon 600 (CPO 6034). This weather resistant powder coating is formulated for exterior uses and far exceeds industry standards, with the finish showing no visible damage at 500 hours of continuous salt spray.
THE SLIMLINE II IS VERSATILE. The Slimline II offers easy on and off mounting for any type of adventure gear. No more untying, unstrapping, un-netting the entire contents of your roof rack to remove one item. The t-slot slats and slotted side rails offer complete mounting flexibility. Loads are independently secured anywhere on the top, sides, or bottom of the rack using Front Runner’s unique bolt on system.
The Slimline II offers limitless possibilities for the end user to customize the arrangement of over 25 Front Runner roof rack accessories.
Front Runner offers roof top solutions for securing water, fuel, tents, bikes, braai* grates, skis, fishing rods, surfboards, axes, recovery jacks, spades*, bottle openers, clothes, kayaks, lights, tables, gas*, rescue tracks, spare tyres*, suitcases, chairs, potjie pots* and snowboards.
*For you Americans, that’s BBQ, shovels, propane, tires and cast iron pots. You read that correct. Cast iron pots.
And if you can’t find a Front Runner accessory for your particular brand of adventure -- secure whatever you like via bolts and the t-slots or try the Front Runner Eye Nuts with the Front Runner Stratchit. The possibilities are endless.
