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!
