I suppose if you are using it more than 2 or 3 times a year (like I would) it may pay to get the Blackwolf which this one is a copy of. Though for me it wasn't worth the extra $600 odd. Very easy to setup and packup which is why I got it.
yer i always use a ground sheet . for the price i paid of just under 400 on sale it was good but i think i'll go back to a canvas tent as those just last when this one dies

My new Trailhawk finally arrived last week. Turned out being MY18. Took it to Sydney and very happy with it. Need to get it out on some tracks now, cant wait!
Thanks again for the advice you all provided.

Cheers,
Shane

Finally got the front end of the GC fixed with the ARB replacement bar. I would have to say that ARB are a pain in the arse to deal with over here in WA. Do not know the meaning of customer service, very frustrating!

Hi Marcus
Very interested in the Frontrunner roof rack you have.
Iím also in Perth and looking for something I can put a spare wheel plus other lighter items. My current Rhino rack is useless in regard to putting a spare on it.....
What are your thoughts on you rack and where did you get it from?

Look forward to hearing from you

Hi Thommo,

Opposite Lock is the national distributor for front runner so just give your local a call. For what itís worth, the front runner rack is a great piece of kit limited only by the Jeepís roof load rating.

There are loads of genuine add ins you can buy, all a bit on the expensive side but extremely functional.

Thanks for the reply, appreciated.
With the mounting over several screws I would assume (bad word sometimes) as opposed to the two on each side with my Rhino rack the load carrying would at least be up to the 65kg Jeep quote.
My whole intention here is to be able to carry a spare wheel / tyre for a long trip that will include some corogations.
Your thoughts on that capability would be very helpful? Standard alloy rim with the 265x18 tyre.

Regards

if it's just a spare wheel and some fuel then look at this option , i have installed this on my car and works a freaking treat . and when i don't need it installed i simply remove it . can also still have a trailer connected when this is on the hitch

https://www.wilcooffroad.com/shop/hitchgate-solo/

then put all your other stuff up on your rhino rack . No issues with putting 68kg of weight on rhino rack products. . Also think about getting a tyre down from the roof . Wheels aint exactly light . Going offroad halve the weight loading as a rule so you're already down to 32kg . Take the weight of the rack plus awning etc and you really can't take much . It would also be very interesting if someone using a frontrunner or uneek rack suffered the same failures due to overloading the roof and then trying to claim a warranty as no company states in writing what load they can carry above the 68kg manufacturer's load rating . As i have come to the conclusion travelling as light as possible bush is just easier. A good offroad trailer is so much easier and you can carry so much more .


With regards to the 68kg rating , On city streets i have had two server racks weighing around 120kgs total on my pioneer tray with no issues at all so you can carry more than the rated load, but once you start going offroad and encounter corrigations , bulldust holes , rutts whatever you have to think of the forces that will be applied to the car and twisting and punishing the chassis .
