Garvin Racks Expedition Racks are designed to carry your gear wherever the trail may take you. This rack is intended for use on either hard or soft tops. The rack mounts securely to both the front windshield brackets and to two locations on the rear body of the Jeep. A slight amount of drilling is required for installation. Whether on the road or off-road, the Expedition Rack will hold up to 300 lbs. of gear. Garvin’s specially engineered rack-tilting feature (for use with soft tops only) allows a person to raise the unloaded Expedition Rack in order to raise or lower the soft top. Please note that two people are required to tilt the rack due to the rack size. For hard top Jeeps, this rack also offers enough clearance to remove the Freedom top front section without having to remove the rack. The top of the Expedition Rack sits 9.75” above the top of the metal front doors.
