South African overland brand outfits Jeep’s newest four-door adventure vehicle

LOS ANGELES (Sept. 17, 2019) – Front Runner Outfitters adds the finishing touch to Jeep’s latest launch with the release of the new Jeep Wrangler JL 4 Door Extreme Roof Rack Kit, designed to accommodate Jeep Wrangler’s fourth-generation off-road vehicle. The South African-based adventure travel gear company continues to build on its trusted reputation with top-notch product design and manufacturing for the latest off-road vehicles of choice.

The Jeep Wrangler JL 4 Door Extreme Roof Rack Kit is available in both full-roof rack and half-roof rack sizes. The rack kit contains all of the components needed to mount the Slimline II cargo rack to a Jeep JL four-door, including the Slimline II tray and a wind deflector. The mounting system easily bolts to the existing mounting points on the body and sport bar. This unobtrusive, high-performance, and nearly indestructible mounting solution allows the driver to quickly remove the Freedom Panels and lower the windscreen with the rack in place, without any interference. The cargo weight is evenly distributed across the sport bars and body of the jeep, placing zero weight on the hard top itself.

Building a roof rack and mounting system for an iconic brand like Jeep is an exciting challenge for Front Runner. Just like Front Runner, Jeep is proven in the most rugged conditions, and combining the two brands creates utilitarian functionality. The Jeep Wrangler has limited cargo space so when equipped with the Jeep JL kit by Front Runner, users have space to haul their favorite toys and gear. Additionally, Front Runner’s new rack allows Jeep owners to feel the sense of freedom and connection to nature that comes from driving a Jeep with the top down and doors off. The quality of the new Jeep Wrangler JL 4 Door Extreme Roof Rack Kitmount is top-of-the-line and adds value for the Jeep community, be it campers, action sport thrill seekers, overlanders or off-road enthusiasts.

The Jeep Wrangler JL 4 Door Extreme Roof Rack Kit is built with T6 aluminum and 3CR12 stainless steel and is coated in black epoxy powder. The entire roof rack system weighs just 86 pounds, creating a durable roof rack that can be easily adjusted for daily needs. Front Runner markets a wide variety of sport- and gear-specific mounts that attach to the roof rack for keeping gear safe and secure, whether you’re headed out for a quick day trip or a multi-night overland expedition.
