Read Time:1 Minute, 5 Second

This weekend I did something that was very difficult to do, I drilled holes into my Jeep hardtop! YIKES! I ordered a Rhino Rack in February 2021, and because orders were back ordered I didn’t get it until late May 2021. When it arrived, I had mixed feelings, on one hand I was excited on the other hand scared! Scared? Yes! I was required to drill 12 holes into my hardtop to support the backbone frame and rack. Here is the biggest lesson I learned!


The instructions are a 6 out of 10 on helpfulness. This means do NOT rely on the instructions exclusively. It wasn’t until I watched Rhino Racks installation video on YouTube that it all made sense. I totally recommend watching that video before installing! If you want to find a link to the video see below.

I didnt want to document my install because I was so nervous. After my install I realized, it wasn’t that hard, and a lot of my fear was all in my head. You can do this! Go slow and follow the instructions, both video and printed.

You love you new rack!
