Default B. Lee's Roof Racks - The Half Rack

Not everyone wants a big, long, do-it-all roof rack. Several people have asked me for a smaller, 1/2 size rack that can carry a spare tire, mount a few lights, and maybe mount a jack. The Half Rack fits that bill!

40" long, 50" wide. Gutter mounted w/ 2 mounts per side. Pictured below is the first build, it has 4 light tabs up front but no Hi-Lift mount. Hey, I build these to YOUR order, not mine! We can add a jack mount or add/subtract light tabs on yours.

As pictured below it's $299. Light tabs are $5 ea +/-. Hi-Lift mount adds $75.

PM or email me for more info!

Rack's delivered! It's a bit dirty, my apologies for that, but you get the idea. I have a feeling it'll just get dirtier from this point anyway!

This looks GREAT! Most smaller racks look cheap/weak. Your's is clearly still tough enough to handle a small amount of gear. I'm gonna have to set some money aside!

Thanks, and yes, it's a very stout rack for a little guy! Truthfully, it's not all that small, it probably has more capcity than your average catalog-purchased, mass-produced rack because it's wider. And since these are hand built to order, YOUR rack is literally YOUR rack, and one of a kind!

The best part, you don't need a huge pile of cash to put one on your Jeep! About the same price as a decent single 33" tire...

Currently, no plans for a ZJ, but only because I don't have one to build off of.

I do have a Sport Rack in the works, that will be similar to the Trail Rack (link in my sig below) but mounted to the factory luggage crossbars. I could easily make that type of rack compatible with the narrower ZJ roof or any other vehicle. Check back soon, I'm working on it!

How would you like to see this with a front lightbar like the Trail Rack? It's certainly an option!

Funny how that happens sometimes! Now, let's make one for your Jeep! PM me for details if you're ready to get your order in.

Unfortuantely, no, the buyer has some other obligations and it's still sitting in the shop awaiting delivery.

If not on his XJ, we'll get it mounted on one & get pics up, it's for sale!

Buyer backed out, this one's for sale!

Combine it with a Trail Rack, and get free shipping on the Half Rack!
