Do you want a roof rack on your ’07-’15 Jeep Wrangler JK but still want the ability to raise, lower, or remove the soft top? Well, you’re in luck, because Rugged Ridge has just what you’re looking for with its new Exo-Top.
The Exo-Top includes a 300-pound-capacity roof rack that works in conjunction with an externally suspended soft top design. The soft top uses a series of Velcro straps along the perimeter bars of the roof rack. Rugged Ridge says that the pulling force applied by the Velcro helps to tighten and shape the soft top and completely eliminates the need to unload any gear or cargo from the roof rack in order to lower, raise, or remove the soft top. The Exo-Top also features a Sun Slider retractable function, which allows the top to slide back with the release of two clips. The Sun Slider creates an open-top experience for owners without the hassle of getting out of the driver seat.
It’s also important to note that the Exo-Top is a direct bolt-on application with no drilling required for installation and is compatible with most standard rack attachments and accessories in the industry, enabling Jeep owners to utilize the Exo-Top to safely haul any type of gear or equipment like bicycles, skis, snowboards, and kayaks.
The Exo-Top is available now for the four-door JK Wrangler Unlimited and will be available for the two-door Wrangler JK in the summer 2015. More info is available at ruggedridge.com.
