My first impression of the JK Congo Pro rack was, “wow, this thing is a beast”. It’s probably the best cage I’ve ever seen for a 4 door soft-top Jeep Wrangler JK. Constructed of heavy (and I do mean heavy) duty 2” steel tubing.
The installation was super easy but I’d recommend having a friend help out with the front hoop to make sure you don’t scratch your Jeep.
Everything bolts into place very easily, no misfits or bad alignments. This thing is spec’d to perfection. The back brackets can get a little tough but once you have one installed the second one is a breeze. Make sure you put your carriage bolts through the bracket before you tighten down the frame bolts.
Once installed it’s super solid. No rattles and no movement whatsoever and the overall look of the rack… mean. It looks as tough as it is. I’ve been stopped three times in the past day or so asking where I got it (and does it allow me to put the soft top down).
“Yes of course! 12 quick bolts at the front and the whole thing hinges back for soft top removal”.
Overall I can’t say enough good things about this rack. I will (and already have) recommend this to anyone looking to install anything from a rooftop tent to someone who simply wants to transport surfboards on a soft top Jeep Wrangler. It can handle it, trust me.
