    KMS MOD-RAK EXP Roof Platform

    Due to a mix-up on a going-out-of-business sale, I've got a new-in-box KMS MOD-RAK EXP roof platform that does nothing for me because I've got a 2-door... This is a large aluminum platform made to bolt on to a KMS Congo Pro cage on a 4-door. I'm sure you could use different brackets and mount it to your cage-style rack. It is designed to hold a standing weight of 850lbs so if you're looking for a solid base for a roof-top tent or something else for your Jeep, this is a great base for you. Everything is still in the factory box and never put together or installed.

    Since a photo of the box does nothing for us here, this is a link to the platform on Quadratec. Please be aware that this is a platform ONLY. You need to have an existing rack system to mount this to. As equipped, it has brackets to mount to a Congo Pro which is 2" round tubing. I'm sure you could get different brackets to mount to other size tubing or some other bracket to mount to what you have.

    Here's a photo of it from the KMS site (The rails are add-ons that are sold separately):

    I Googled around and have seen this platform listed anywhere from $800 to over $1000. I'm asking $700 or best offer. I'm in SoCal and would be willing to help get it to anyone from San Diego to as far up as Sacramento since it would give me an excuse to visit some family up in the Northern part of our state.

    Bump. Still available and getting in my way. 😎

    I know most guys aren't into this kinda thing here, but maybe you're​ building an offroad trailer that needs a good, solid platform for a rooftop tent?

    Make me an offer... Trade may be considered. I'm in the market for an Adams 1350 front driveshaft. 😎

    Looks like it's made from aluminum, so not weldable. Hope you find someone to take it though.

    It is aluminum, but it has several options for mounting brackets, so it could be useful if someone thinks out of the box. 😉

    You're correct, it definitely is and thanks for correcting me. I began to wonder after I posted and never made it back to correct myself. Thanks.

    Lol. Yeah, it is weldable, just harder to join it to steel if you don't know what you're doing.

    Haha its all good, most definitely harder to weld that's for sure and you need some experience to do it but it can be done if someone really wanted to

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
