Barricade roof rack on Rubicon X (or 10A / Hard Rock)?

Has anyone installed a Barricade roof rack on a Rubicon X, 10A, or Hard Rock Edition? I'm curious whether you attached it to the tub, or whether you modified the stock X/10A/HR rear bumper to allow the rack to be mounted to the frame.

Don't know if this helps. Just throwing out possibilities for you.
Any way for you to mount it to your bumper as I have done?

Modified the frame and tub mount brackets to do my install. Just had a powder coat place straighten flat and re-powder coat the tub bracket. Cut the longest straight section of the frame mounts to obtain a straight pipe to make up the difference in height from tub to bumper and bolted tub bracket to my Mopar Offroad bumper.
Only needed to buy the stainless Allen bolts and drill two holes in the bumper to mount the tub bracket. Still have not decided to add a second bolt to tub bracket bumper mount, since it is only down force weight from rack.
Not a big fan of drilling holes in sheet metal and expecting it to hold 350lbs. Did not want to hack my full width bumper.
So this was my resolution to mounting it properly.
Just an idea.

Not a big fan of drilling sheet metal to mount the roof rack. And I was not going to hack my bumper to use the frame mount. So combined the two and it worked out great!
Very strong roof rack for my $360($10 coupon). They were $370 last fall. Now are $400.
.12 inch thick pipe frame and excellent powder coat. Great value.
