The cross rails of the Jeep luggage rack slide along the side luggage rails when not locked down, allowing you to position them where you need them. You can remove the cross rails by sliding them off the back of the side rails. Even someone with just a bit of mechanical aptitude can remove the cross rails without trouble.
