  • Chief Products WK2 Roof Rack provides the pinnacle of performance for roof rack systems on the WK2 (Jeep Grand Cherokee, 2011-2020). It delivers industry leading load ratings (150kg dynamic & 600kg static) in an extremely light weight and low profile design. Most impressively, the modular design provides an unprecedented amount of configurability, allowing you to mix-and-match components to create the exact roof rack system you want.

    We've utilised the latest manufacturing techniques and aircraft-grade aluminium alloys to keep the overall installed weight low and accomplish a degree of fit-and-finish you have to see in person to truly appreciate. The smooth top, low profile design and hidden fasteners means we've delivered a roof rack with almost no wind noise, amazingly even with the sunroof open. Best of all, we made it extremely easy to mount accessories - whether you're using t-nuts that slide the entire length of the planks; or our industry leading Tie-Down Plates that easily slide and clamp between the planks. If you're looking for a top-quality place to carry extra gear on your next adventure, there's no doubt we've got you covered.

The modular design allows you to easily remove/reposition the planks to suit the needs of your current adventure. This platform delivers the pinnacle of performance for roof rack systems.
    [MOUNTING RAILS ONLY]
    These Mounting Rails are one of the keys to our industry leading load ratings, (150kg dynamic & 600kg static). Not only do they transfer forces to the strongest points on the WK2 roof, they also utilise a boxed design that resists deformation at any singular point. This unique design element creates a 'mounting system' that is significantly stronger than any of our competitors.

    * WARNING *

    FOR MAXIMUM SAFETY DO NOT EXCEED MANUFACTURERS ROOF WEIGHT LIMITS. Our load ratings represent the maximum mechanical forces our roof rack system can withstand before failure. Our load ratings do not address vehicle safety during high-speed manoeuvres, or changes to vehicle dynamics caused by a higher centre of gravity.

    * CAUTION *

    For maximum safety, loads should be evenly distributed and properly secured to avoid shifting during transport. Before using your roof rack, it is important to familiarise yourself with the proper load securing techniques and be constantly safety oriented. Please note, all of our load ratings are based on an evenly distributed load.
