Exposed Racks Crossbar & Accessories Manufacturer Warranty
IMPORTANT: IT IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE INSTALLER/USER TO DECIDE WHERE AND HOW MUCH WEIGHT TO DISTRIBUTE IN ANY ONE LOCATION. THE WEIGHT IS DISTRIBUTED DOWN THROUGH THE FRAME AND/OR DISTRIBUTED OVER THE ROOF TOP, AND IS FANTASTICALLY STRONG. THAT BEING SAID, WEIGHT CAPACITY IS LIMITED TO JEEP’S MAXIMUM STATIC AND DYNAMIC WEIGHT LIMITS. WHEN PUTTING LOAD ON THE ROOF TOP, TAKE CAUTION TO ALWAYS DISTRIBUTE THE WEIGHT AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE. USE COMMON SENSE WHEN INSTALLING AND CARRYING LOADS. INSTALLATION OF CROSSBARS DOES NOT MAKE YOUR VEHICLE INVINCIBLE, AND THEY DO NOT PROTECT YOU IN THE EVENT OF A VEHICLE ROLL OVER OR OTHER IMPACT. PLEASE USE COMMON SENSE.
BEFORE EACH USE (DRIVE), ALWAYS CHECK ALL BOLTS FOR TIGHTNESS AND CHECK THE POSITION AND STRAPS/BOLTS/PINS OF THE LOAD BEING CARRIED. WHENEVER LOADING SOMETHING ON TOP OF THE CROSSBARS FOR THE FIRST TIME YOU SHOULD STOP THE VEHICLE AFTER A FEW MINUTES OF DRIVING TO CHECK/TIGHTEN EVERYTHING (THIS IS FOR ALL ITEMS ON ALL ROOF RACKS, NOT JUST EXR).
