Stack 'Em & Rack 'Em - Jeep Gear StoragePosted in How To on November 1, 1998 Comment (0)
Olympic 4x4 Offers Creative Solutions For Jeep Gear Storage With Its Pack Rack, Sports Rack, And Receiver Rack We are now into the Third Prize slot of the Jp magazine/Off Road Unlimited Gear Up & Go! sweepstakes equipment roundup. This prize package is billed as "Storage Solutions," and that's exactly what Olympic 4x4's utility racks provide-storage solutions for storage-deficient Jeeps.
This prize package includes the Olympic Pack Rack, Sports Rack, and Receiver Rack. The Pack Rack is the heart of Olympic's utility rack systems. It bolts onto the tailgate hinges (the only rack that allows for full tailgate function) and requires only two new holes to be drilled. The basket is 17x42 inches, and features a 75-pound load capacity.
The Sports Rack is designed for all of those Jeep owners who like to do more in the backcountry than trail ride. The Olympic Sports Rack provides a low-profile carrier deck above the Jeep that is perfect for strapping on surfboards, fishing gear, snowboards, water skis, or kayaks. Load capacity is 100 pounds for this rack.
The Receiver Rack places another 17x42-inch basket above the rear bumper for optimum off-road ground clearance, which holds up to 250 pounds. Although the tailgate cannot be opened with the Receiver Rack in place, the rack is easily removed and installed via the receiver hitch.
