The Rocky Road Adventure rack can serve not only as a mounting system for important offroad accessories as shown in our photos, but also for everyday use such as hauling lumber, plywood, cargo boxes, or other oversized items too large for the interior cargo area.

The Jeep Cherokee KL rack provides a great carrying system at the lowest of low profiles for excellent advantage to wind resistance, maximum fuel economy, and stealthy profile. All of our accessory mounts pop on and off in a minute so you can customize your rack however you want, by yourself, in a moment's notice to again maximize fuel economy and flexibility of use.

Our photos will show the rack decked out with our cool Offroad and Overlanding accessories, but the rack doesn't NEED to be accessorized.
Many people will just want a rack kit for carrying camping gear, boxes, skis/snowboards, kayaks, and so on.
Our racks will with with many universal Thule and Yakima mounting kits and cargo containers.

more cargo space for cherokee 2014+Another benefit of the Rocky Road rack system... Early Cherokee owners started telling us about the large area in the rear deck where the spare tire is kept and a desire to better utilize that space. So we have designed the Rocky Road rack system come with an optional tire mount which allows you to move the tire up onto your roof and really open up that space in the rear cargo area quite a bit.

2014 - 2019 Cherokee KL Roof Rack stealth system & accessories

While we were at designing the best tire rack and tire carrier on the planet for your Jeep, we added some additional optional features as well.

The spare tire mount. Our kit uses a cool prerunner style mount with an easy to use T-handle for tightening and securing. See our note above about why this is a great option for your 2014+ Cherokee!

You can pack along extra items such as an axe, shovel, axe and shovel, or anything else with a similar handle using our accessory mount.

The HiLift jack mount gives you a nice secure place to store this essential offroad tool. We use an official HiLift jack mount kit which allows you to lock your jack into place if you wish. TIP: Watch your placement of this kit if you're using a 48" jack for tailhate clearance when the gate is up...

Our forward light mount gives you a great place to mount auxiliary offroad lights such as the IPF kit shown in our pictures. Our mount puts them up high to get rid of that hood glare you often get from lower mounted overhead lights. Can also be mounted on the rear of the rack as well.

Fuel or water carriers are a great item to have along for a weekend adventure, or your dream road trip. Our racks allow an assortment of fuel or water cans to be used which can be purchased from many auto parts stores, outdoor stores, or direct from Rocky Road. The single can carrier kit holds 2 containers.

Jeep Cherokee Roof Cross-bar and mounting kit

For those who do not want the full rack kit, but just a set of crossbars on which to mount items like Yakima style bike mounts, Kayak mounts, or other Yakima (possibly Thule) accessories, and Roof Top Tents which may be mounted to round crossbars... the Rocky Road CROSSBAR KIT. This kit consists of crossbars which span from one side rail to the other (still requires our steel roof rail kit).

This kit is an excellent alternative to the flimsy thin stock crossbars Jeep is selling direct from dealerships. Did we mention those are flimsy? Ya... flimsy. 

Jeep Cherokee Roof Rails, KL

The incredibly strong RRO rack system (and/or the Crossbar kit) does require the Rocky Road steel roof rails.
These steel rails bolt to the factory mounting points in the tracks on your roof. All bolton, no cutting, drilling, or other modification needed. Mounts tight and secure for the most rugged on and offroad use. Perfect for the ultimate world safari expedition, or for just traveling around town. Rocky Road steel rails will also work for other rack systems which may come to market in coming years. The rails are required for our rack system and shown in each photo. They are the side rails to which the rack attaches. The Rail kit is sold separate.
The Jeep Cherokee KL Roof Rack system is built around a super sturdy 1.25" tube frame. All components easily bolt into place. Anyone in possession of a wrench can mount this kit up. All components come in a very durable black powdercoat finish and look excellent next to the factory roof rails. The whole system is UPSable to anywhere in the world.

We are happy to carry the two best RTT tent kits on the market at this time in kits which will perfectly mount to your Jeep if using the Rocky Road Rails and Crossbar kits... no fishing around for additional mounting pieces or scrambling to whip up your own DIY mounting setup.

Rocky Road is very pleased to offer these tent kits, the racks to support them, and also pleased that TEPUI used our rack kits on their own vehicles to display their tents in various sales literature and online. If you go to the Tepui website, many of the photos showing the tents mounted are using Rocky Road rack systems!
