Enhanced security level

Fit perfectly on the roof of the Jeep Grand Cherokee
Durable but in some cases it’s not
The structure of the this CURT roof rack is engineered to be durable and resistant to shock and weather condition, that is why it is coated with that black power layer, but no one can change physics, steel will not react well with water, and if you remove a part of the protective layer, or even scratch it, corrosion can create weak points on the structure, and the bigger problem is the difficulty of discovering these weak points until you have some weight on the roof rack, so remember, don’t remove the protective coating.
Can be expanded
For long duration trip, the internal space and the basket itself might not be enough to carry everything that you will / might need, roof tents for good Jeep grand Cherokee are huge, and they need a lot of space, the same can be said if you like to have multiple bulky items to carry or just a large number of roof cargo bags.
This steel roof rack can be expanded from its original 11 square feet to a larger side of 17 square feet.
