As you’re packing your Jeep for that summer road trip, you may find that you have more luggage than you have space, especially if you’re taking an adventure that requires equipment like bikes, tents or skis.
To get the most freedom, flexibility, and adventure from your Jeep, here are some of our favorite cargo and sports racks.
Receiver Hitch Cargo Rack
Plug this rack into your 2-inch receiver hitch and load it up with luggage, sports equipment, and coolers for your next camping trip. It’s great for trips to the home improvement or gardening warehouse, all loaded up with materials and mulch. It also comes in handy when hauling garbage or Christmas trees, keeping soil and pine needles out of your pristine Jeep interior.
Spring for the jumbo-sized protective rainproof storage bag
that keeps your gear dry in bad weather and stays tightly secured to the rack, thanks to the built-in straps. Don’t worry about the mud splash – just hose this bag down and stash it until your next great escape.
