Jeep Wrangler JL 4-Door Backbone, Rhino-Rack
According to the company, they’ve spent the last 2 years developing this next generation Rhino-Rack Backbone for the Wrangler JL 4-Door. The rig is fitted to factory chassis points and distributes the weight of the cargo evenly through the body of the Jeep, enabling the ability to carry 264lbs of gear (a sum roughly equal to that of your author’s daily lunch) when installed in conjunction with a Pioneer Platform.
Rhino-Rack says installing the Backbone carrier is a one person job but it is always good to have an extra set of hands to help. The whole works of it can be installed without removing the hard top, apparently. Backbone for the Jeep Wrangler JL 4-Door carries a sticker of $449.
