As Promised, we wanted to show off our new roof rack that we plan to offer in conjunction or as an add-on to our Bronco Pak Rax!

After trying to work with the Ford Bronco OEM Roof Rack, we noticed a lot of inconsistency from Ford on their new OEM roof rack. While it is a great option from the factory for a roof rack, it did not offer the stability and strength we were looking for to work with. The housings for the most part are plastic which is fine for a roof rack that is rated to 150lbs roughly. We wanted to add more and give the end-user more confidence when carrying more weight especially since the Bronco is engineered for a faster-paced off-road experience. We also noticed the cost of what it would be per Pak Rax to make Ford's clamp system in metal for better stability and structure which means in turn we will lose customers due to the high price. We decided to take the original file and create a simplified version that still offers the strength and modularity our Pak Rax usually offers.
These are the attributes we focused on as we designed the roof rack and Pak Rax together for the Ford Bronco:
  • Higher weight capacity
  • Easy install
  • Wind deflector to minimize a ton of wind noise issues
  • Cutouts for high-performance Heretic Studio lights
  • All Aluminum construction to avoid any rust
  • Low profile to fit in garages and more
  • Offer the ability to remove the Hardtop panels
Spec's:
overall height added to your Bronco- 3.9" from the center of the hardtop or 3.3" from the highest point of the hardtop (outer edges).

Very Cool. Will the all 3 roof panels (4dr) be able to be removed with the rack in place?

Yes, they will still have the ability to be removed! the clearance of the underside is 1/2" higher than the OEM roof rack which gives you more clearance to remove the panels but still under the overall height of the OEM rack which is awesome.

Our Roof rack will only sit 3.65" above the roof (center of roof/ non hump area)

Let us know your thoughts below! We will have both the 2 door and 4 door models displayed at Overland Expo West in May 2022 in Flagstaff!
What's the estimated weight capacity of the roof rack?

Are you planning to eventually come out with a "half rack" for just the rear portion of the 4-door Bronco? I don't want a full roof rack but love your side panels for securing Maxtrax, shovel, axe, and whatnot.

Yes, we are developing a half rack for both 2 and 4 door models. The half-rack will likely not have as much weight capacity but still offer mounting solutions for you. Our Pak Rax will integrate perfectly into our roof rack!

At this time we cannot confirm the exact number but with our full kit (Pak Rax and full roof rack) we are seeing the ability to increase the capacity of what the rack can carry compared to the OEM roof rack and other brands that are just sitting on the top of the Bronco hardtop. Since the Hardtop has a limited weight rating and fiberglass construction, most companies are limited but ours will mount into the body of the car (no drilling) essentially meaning we can have a better load rating.

We are waiting to test this and confirm a weight for everyone.

I only want a rack to support a RTT. Can I pick and choose which crossbars to use, leaving the top mostly open when I don't have a RTT on the rack? There's more and more Broncos in the SLC area, but let me know if you need another for test fitting.

It appears that the rear section fits under the hardtop bolts. Would it be possible to use the half rack as a lifting point for removing the hardtop via a hoist?

Yes, you can pick and choose how many cross members you want to use. The rack will come standard with a certain amount of T slot cross members for you to use. However, using all of them to distribute the weight of the RTT would be most benefitial.

We may take you up to test fit. We are in North Salt Lake.

This is something we will have to confirm for you. Likely not though because the lower mount is made to be attached to the body of the Bronco and if you are removing the hardtop and leaving the rack on, the hardtop and roof rack will only be held together by the clamps of the roof rack to the hardtop.

In situations of like this in the Jeep community, we have seen people use hoists that wrap under the entire rear portion of the hardtop to lift it off. Hopefully, this clarifies.
