There is a reason Jeep makes commercials with its Wranglers (and Gladiators) with their doors off; it’s one of the great joys of owning a Jeep. Getting rained on? Not so much.
My onboard carrying system uses two semi-permanent brackets that are attached directly to your frame via stock holes- there is NO drilling, bending, or hammering required. This rack works for stock bumpers as well as after-market steel bumpers that are the same size as the OEM one and that use the same mounting holes as the OEM bumper. It will support up to a 35 inch spare tire.
Once the brackets are mounted, the rack can be attached quickly and easily whenever you want. When you are not using the rack, you can store it behind your rear seat with the included Bungee Balls.
I will be making an installation video for the JL model Wranglers shortly. You have to remove the two rear plastic covers (three bolts each) and the bumper (three bolts per side). You also need to remove your spare tire so that it’s out of the way while taking off your bumper. There is no drilling, hammering, or having to fight with your Wrangler to mount your door carrier. If you have a Rubicon, you will need to relocate your trailer lights to the other side of the bumper- I have a mounting bracket for those as well- pictures coming soon.
Also- you can pull a trailer (from boats to utility!) while your doors are on your rack- go to the beach or lake and bring your toys along while driving doorless!
