    It’s the rocklizard roof rack and in my opinion worth the $200. I love mine, very heavy duty and well built.

    Does it make a lot of wind noise?

    That and the ability to put a ski rack on it are the only two things holding me back.

    Mine makes a little bit I believe that’s due to the light bar on the front. Now that I have MT tires though I can’t hear it. It was never that loud to begin with.
    You can see the light bar in the picture.

    Was there a big drop in MPG that you noticed from adding it?

    That is the second edition of it, don't see all of the parts there. Mine was an original one that was all together, this one V-2 came as a bolt and weld together, still strong but prone to rust a lot more. Check it out close , plus measure it close, I've only seen one for a KJ, 6 or so for KKs

    The ones we did for the KKs at my place we modified a lot making them stronger and less prone to rust

    I was hoping you’d respond! What parts is this one missing? Hardware?
