First off, Installing the Smittybilt Roof Top Tent on my 99 TJ

When something is shipped “freight” you better be ready for it!  The first adventure with the Smittybilt Roof Top Tent started just picking it up from the hauler.  Where I live is on a busy stretch of road with 0 parking.   Not knowing what type of hauler would be bringing the shipment I just provided the address.  If you should order this beast, be aware you might need to get creative in picking it up.  It wasn’t too much of a hassle for me as I received a call from the shipper and met them at a more truck friendly parking lot a few miles away.  If you lived in a densely populated area I could imagine this being a bit of a pain.  Plan on having help lifting as well as one person would find this quite tricky. I was lucky enough to be able to snug right up to the back of the trailer and we set it right down on top of the Cherokee. A couple of ratchet straps later and I was on my way.
The intended recipient of the tent is actually not the XJ.  We have a Kargo Master Congo rack that we will be installing on to my 99 TJ.

SO what’s next? Time… All I need is time! We’ll be covering the next few steps with some more detail.  I did not find a lot of resources about combining the Congo Cage and Tent together so I want to make sure we do a good job covering that.  Until next time, Wave Dammit!
