Roof Top Cargo Carriers

I would appreciate more info on how you modified and mounted the rooftop cargo carriers.
Thx, Sam

The frame in the photo above has been modified a bit to fit the fiberglass trailer tub kit shown below (the trailer is still a work in progress, haven't painted it yet). The stock assembly of the frame kit is a little different than shown above.

BTW the front rack basket on the trailer is also an HF product, it's their 69858 ATV Cargo Carrier with the parts turned 90 degrees to fit the frame.

And speaking of that cargo carrier, two of them can be assembled to make a really nice roof top cargo rack (ignore the ladder, that's not from HF ):

Lots of HF in the photo below... the frame under the fiberglass Jeep-tub trailer (different trailer but same HF 94564 frame kit as used above), the rack on the front of the trailer and the rack on top of the Jeep...

Here are two diagrams that hopefully will make it clear. The basket halves look exactly as pictured below when they come out of the box, the cross bars are all connected together in the center by a metal strip.

First, an exploded diagram. The original HF parts are in gray, the added metal is in magenta.

And here's a detail view of the clamps that secure the basket to the XJ rack:

If you've got any more questions, please ask, I'll be happy to try to explain.

Thanks a lot for the diagram. I think it's a great idea!

I have some of their tools and for the money they're pretty good. The 25" 1/2'' drive breaker bar is tough to beat, so are their impact sockets, and some of their ratchet wrenches. Some of their stuff is total crap, others things aren't bad.

Has any one bought any accessories for the jeep from harbor freight. If you did, any comments would be helpful.

I'm running a badlands 9k lb winch. I love it. Tough to beat for their price.

I've also broken one of their Pittsburgh steal ratcheting breaker bars. Returned it and got a brand new one with no hassle. Which has been holding up quite well. (Though the craftsman sockets seem to break more often)
