Rugged good looks and ultimate functionality – That's what you get with Smittybilt Defender roof rack. It enables you to have extra storage space while maintaining that stylish look you're going for. Caution – may cause people to stare!

It's constructed of heavy-duty 1" round steel tubing and topped off with a durable textured black powder-coat finish. This roof basket will carry up to 150 lbs. of gear that you don't want in your vehicle or it will just create the extra space for a long trip. This roof rack is designed for the ultimate off-road performance and look. Available in a bolt together or one piece welded design, Smittybilt ensures their racks are built as strong as they look. Integrated flooring and welded light tabs, 4 front and 2 rear, provide maximum functionality.

To bring you an even sweeter deal, you can complete the look with Smittybilt's Defender roof rack light cage. It mounts to the Defender roof rack for increased visibility and enhanced appearance. It protects 4 lights up to 9" in diameter. Made of the same durable 1" round steel tubing to match the strength and durability of the roof rack.

Installation is easy with multiple mounting options. Adapter brackets are available for you to add on specific cargo needs such as tires, shovels and axes, and off-road jacks that can be securely mounted to the basket. Your Defender light cage easily bolts directly to the roof rack for easy install. Whether you're looking for the extra storage space on your vehicle, or need some awesome off-road light mount, you will not be disappointed in the quality and craftsmanship of the Smittybilt roof rack.
