Yes, we’ve taken a very close look at Jeep’s design for the roof and those rivet nuts in the roof. I plan to release a blog post that outlines our whole development process for the WK2 Roof Rack. We definitely learned some interesting stuff through the process.

We’re planning to release our mounting rails, so that customers like yourself can use them with their existing roof rack. Creating compatibility with numerous other products can be tough, but we’re going to have a crack at it.

Cheers,
Bill

There is a lot of wiring routed and hot glued to the roof lining, but they can be detached. There is a black module also stuck to the left rear of the roof lining, not sure what it ia for.

The airbags are there above each door jam.

Just remember to keep your hands clean otherwise you will have to clean the roof lining. As usual, its a delecate piece, so creasenings can happen and will look like crap.

If you intend on repairing or modding the roof structure or even boring new rivit nuts, I suggest removing the roof lining and do the job correctly.

Wow, yeah i figured as much, i was hoping to try and get the roof lining down on one side as i only wrecked one rivnut and possibly try and epoxy glue it from the bottom, not sure how it would go. Cheers for the pics and details.

New Brand will launch early next year. I have new rack on my wk2 now. Looks ace and nice and solid but light weight. Holding off until I get a few more cars sorted for launch.

So far has Awning mounts, Max Trax mounts and spare tyre mounts as well as spots for lights. Fits other brand shovel/Axe mounts and water tank mounts.
