|ChuckF||Richie...that sounds good. I'm thinking a trailer hitch carrier, the HR Tailgate Bracket and HR Roof Rack will do me until I get bigger garage doors and can fit in a bigger permanent roof rack ;-) Thanks!|

If you have no trailer hitch you can attach the highrock rack to a bracket attached to the spare wheel carrier.

|ChuckF||Thanks all!! I think the HighRock rack with a trailer hitch cargo carrier will do it...|

That high rock rack looks pretty handy.
...a quick release lever for easy slide on installation and removal.
Sounds like you could just slide it on and off when you need it.
What kind of stuff are you hauling? Do you have a trailer hitch? You could also consider one of those cargo baskets that goes into the receiver...or of course a trailer. Specialty trailers like bike and kayak trailers are ridonkulously expensive IMO...but you can pick up a utility trailer fairly reasonably.

You guys probably don't knowit, but I've had that same rack (Prototype) from MBRP.com (Canada) for two years now and
------IT'S NOT REMOVABLE-----
That baby stays with the hardtop and makes the hardtop removal --super easy-
It'll also support a RTT
Just remember, you can't transfer one from a 2007/8/9/10--to the 2011, just won't work-
It's a wonderful top, but if you want to use a rack when your tops off--WRONG RACK !

|ChuckF||Good point, Jimbo...I'll look out for the 2011s. Thanks!|

QUESTION: It seems like the HighRock rack connects to a rail system on the side of the Jeep. I assume that means the entire system can be taken on and off fairly easily leaving just the rail on the Jeep when the rack is not on. Is that right? Thanks for your input!!

You can even put your freedom tops on it.

Good luck, unless you've some estimated complete dates from MBRP in Canada, the previous JKU racks (07 thru10) WON'T work !!

How much weight do you need to carry? This one will add 150lbs to your rack room storage.

But I've decided to go w/ one that is installed directly onto the hard top and gives me around 700lbs of additional storage. It also gives me handles to grab to take the hardtop off.

Removable roof rack for 4DR 2011 Rubicon
I'm looking for a roof rack for my 2011 4DR Rubicon. I'd like one that can be fairly easily taken completely on and off as I need it. Any suggestions?
