The Chief Products Safari Edition Roof Rack is all about delivering maximum functionality. They start with their Mounting Rails, then add (6) Planks and (12) End-Caps (featuring 7 slots just like the traditional Jeep grille). The modular design allows you to easily remove/reposition the planks to suit the needs of your current adventure. This configuration delivers industry leading load ratings (150kg dynamic & 600kg static) and a nearly unlimited amount of mounting locations for accessories.
This Roof Rack provides the pinnacle of performance for roof rack systems on the WK2 in an extremely lightweight and low profile design. Most impressively, the modular design provides an unprecedented amount of configurability, allowing you to mix-and-match components to create exactly the rack system you want.
Chief have utilised the latest manufacturing techniques and proprietary aluminium alloys to keep the overall installed weight low and accomplish a degree of fit-and-finish you have to see in person to truly appreciate. The smooth top, low profile design and hidden fasteners mean they have delivered a roof rack with almost no wind noise, (amazingly even with the sunroof open). Best of all, it’s extremely easy to mount accessories – whether you’re using t-nuts that slide the entire length of the planks; or theirr industry-leading Tie-Down Plates that easily slide and clamp between the planks.

Our modular engineering approach allow us to deliver a roof rack system that can be easily adapted to any situation. It also means you can upgrade/downgrade your roof rack any time your needs require.
All versions deliver industry leading load ratings (150kg dynamic & 600kg static). These ratings were independently tested and the test results are certified to comply with Australian Standard (AS 1235-2000) as well as international standards (ISO / PAS 11154 : 2009:2006) and (DIN 75302/02: 1991). During independent testing, our roof rack system successfully withstood 330kg of upward force, 600kg of forward force (including a special 20° off-axis test). To achieve our certification we needed to have less than 10mm of movement in our structure at the tested loads, we had 0.17mm!
One of the keys to our industry leading load ratings is our Mounting Rails. Not only do they transfer forces to the strongest points on the WK2 roof, they also utilise a boxed design that resists deformation at any singular point. This unique design element creates a ‘mounting system’ that is much stronger than any of our competitors.
We utilise the latest manufacturing techniques and aircraft-grade aluminium alloys to deliver a roof rack system with an extremely high strength-to-weight ratio. This means our roof rack has an extremely low weight, while still being the very strongest on the market.
