The Jeep Wrangler is one of the most popular off-roader nameplates in the country. Wrangler is based on a formidable platform that can accommodate some drastic modifications, and if you are looking for a one-stop solution for all your modification needs, then California-based Garvin Industries might just be the answer to your prayers. Garvin Industries is a family-owned outfit, which has been manufacturing high-quality products since 1975. The company also offers a wide range of aftermarket parts and accessories for Jeeps and other popular high-riding vehicles used by off-road vehicle enthusiasts.
One of the benefits of being a family-owned operation is that Garvin Industries offers exceptional customer service. The El Cajon-based company has sponsored several builds over the years and supported many off-road enthusiasts by helping them turn their otherwise tame daily driver into an off-roader’s trail-worthy dream ride. In addition to rock rails and bumpers, Garvin Industries also offers tire carriers, roof racks, and roof rack accessories for some of the most popular SUVs in the market. The company may specialize in Jeeps but offers a variety of after-market equipment for Toyota FJ Cruiser, Ford Full-size van, Chevrolet Suburban, Nissan Xterra, Ford Excursion, Toyota Landcruiser, and Ford’s F-Series pickup trucks, to name a few. They are also a known supplier to the OEMs sourcing a variety of high-quality cargo accessories.
Garvin Industries is a leading supplier of roof racks for the OEMs.
Off Road Xtreme reached out to Ron Garvin from Garvin Industries to try and find out what drives the company. “Our goal is to offer our customers products that will let them enjoy the outdoors with friends and family. Our racks are designed to hold all the stuff you need for your next adventure: Camping gear, kayaks, Roof Top Tents Etc. We help our customers Leave Nothing Behind,” said Ron.
He further added, “Our racks are manufactured in the USA at our facility in El Cajon, California. Most of our racks are made with 3/4” square steel tubing or 1.75” dia. round tubing. Most of our Jeep Wrangler Racks will hold 300 pounds off-road and up to 600 pounds static weight, which is perfect for a roof top tent or other gear. Our products are all engineered in-house and thoroughly tested with either our company Jeeps or customer vehicles.”
The company aims to deliver the highest standards of quality, and all of its products are handcrafted using high-grade steel. Garvin Industries manufactures all of its offerings using craftsmen, who have honed their techniques over generations, and every product is made in America. “We test all of our products prior to hitting the market. We put a real emphasis on quality control to correct mistakes before they happen. Since all our manufacturing is done in house we are able to quickly make design changes if need be due to vehicle changes etc,” said Ron.

This expertise is essential to crafting high-quality products that are designed to enhance the utility of a vehicle like the Jeep Wrangler, especially when it comes to maximizing the storage space. The Jeep Wrangler can withstand most grueling terrains one can throw its way, but in some of its most compact iterations, the SUV drops the ball when it comes to everyday practicality as it fails to offer impressive utility.
This is especially true for older Jeep models and their cargo capacity, which is why installing a roof rack is one of the most popular modifications amongst Wrangler enthusiasts. Almost 85% of Garvin Industries’ business relies on delivering industry-leading roof racks, and the company manufactures every product from scratch. The company uses a two-coat powder coating process to give its products their beautiful finish and relies on its in-house powder coating capability to ensure the highest levels of quality.
The manufacturer’s in-house powder coating capability also bestows it with complete control over the manufacturing process of the parts. This allows Garvin Industries to entertain rush orders that can be assembled and shipped out on the same day. Garvin Industries specializes in manufacturing roof racks, which is why the installation of parts is a pretty straightforward and user-friendly process. This means that users do not have to use a trial and approach technique to ensure a good fit for their lauded off-roader. “Typical install time is 3-4 hours depending on the vehicle,” Ron explained.
Garvin Industries Roof Racks are easily installed.
The wilderness off-road roof rack, along with other Garvin Industries products comes with a detailed instruction manual. Customers only need to fiddle with a few nuts and bolts for a couple of hours to bring the entire ensemble together. Once you have the lower support brackets installed your Garvin Industries garden industry roof rack is ready to accompany you on your adventures. Buyers can also visit the official website to get in touch with the company’s customer service that aims to support its clients to the best of its abilities.
“We are a 3rd generation family owned company that was first incorporated in 1977. We appreciate all our customers and look forward to helping them with their off-road vehicle storage needs,” said Ron.
With its product range, Garvin Industries has managed to deliver a high-quality and cost-effective roof rack solution for enthusiasts, who want to kick off their off-road projects with a reliable and simple modification. Projects like Jeff’s Pirateship Wrangler X are formidable go-over-any-terrain vehicles, but they can also be daunting challenges for most of us.
