Great Day Jeep Gun Rack

So anyone out there on the old forum use this product? I am a hunter and I try to spend as much time at the deer lease as I can. It's rough country out there on a north Texas cattle ranch. I carry at least a pistol and a rifle regardless of the season. This setup looks pretty nice, just wanted to see if anyone here had any input.

Great Day Quick Draw Overhead Jeep Gun Rack : Amazon.com : Automotive

Here's a link to one on Amazon if you haven't seen it yet.

it doesn't say as to what model its specifically made for,and judging by the pics its an older gen wrangler possibly TJ. also if you see the left review of the item the guy says pretty much its shabby leaving 3 stars only.


I would also check your local laws to see how legal that is. i know texas is very open about firearms but some reason i don't see that as being kosher.

I had a buddy about 15 years ago with a similar rack mount in his pick up.

Didn't work as good as he thought it was going to.

I thought it was a good idea but if it really were such, 'everybody' rather than 'nobody' would have one.

Try it and let us know your experience.

I use this one Amazon.com: Big Sky BSR-2 Gun Rack: Sports & Outdoors mounted to the roll bar in the back of a 2 door, directly behind the sound bar. Works great. Mounted it with 2 muffler clamps, solid as can be.

maybe look into fitting a mount like the military uses in the hmmwv? very simple mechanism and easy in/out. mounts in the door way muzzle up. I used them while in the Marines and always thought they worked pretty well.

Check with Extreme Outfitters, I think they make Rifle mounts as well as pistol mounts

A few questions for the OP.

What type of rifle are you thinking about putting in the JK?

A long rifle may be a tough order as opposed to an M4/AR15 with a collapsible stock.

Are dead set on having it overhead?

In similar posts in other forums....the best spots tended to be along the base of the back seat, mounted on a solid cargo barrier, on the swingout rear door (probably won't work for a JK) or in the cargo area.

If you carry a pistol....I would figure that you do not need immediate access to the rifle?

Probably depends on whether concealment is a requirement. Against a white ceiling, especially if your rig is lifted, it will be visible to every car on the road. Obviously not an issue if for trails only.

I bet some of these gun racks could be converted to carry ski's or maybe even a snowboard. Dry, of course, would need to bag them or something for after skiing.

After ruining the paint on my '12 JKUR hood, I found that using a 1/2" hard foam rubber mat makes a great base for shooting off the hood using a bipod.(varmints). Clear 2" wide mailing tape keeps it snug for a weekend.
You can find the mat in the camping department (goes under a sleeping bag).

I need a rig for using the open side of the tailgate (not as good as the stable hood for those long shots).

Is that the order you're sticking with? Just checking, cause the Chick part of that list may have (read that - damn sure will have) something to say bout dat!!

I just found that somewhere online, but looks like Kydex to me. Lots of folks doing custom Kydex holsters, including my shop.

I have one like the op posted. I tried it over the front seat, and with 1 AR in it, I didn't like it. It was too close to my head for my liking. I ended up moving it to the rear over where my rear seat used to be. It works pretty good there, and is easily accessible through the back window, or the sides if top is down. No pics of the mount, sorry.
For carrying my pistol, I just use a Serpa holster, mounted with one of their male/female connectors. I mounted the female to my center console, and just snap the holster on and off as needed. works great.

Nice! Awesome idea. I see you have a SA-XD Service model. I have similar in .45, but no threaded barrel. At least it looks like one from what I can make out in the pic. I feel a "mod" coming on and I already have a Serpa, just need the connectors.

i love the idea of an overhead rifle rack. once i buy my welder (probly next year) i think ill try fabing my own. but i would make it alot more secure than that 'quick draw' deal, more like a thin safe that bolts on to the rollcage
