Newbie "nice"erton...looking for helpful hints.

I just bought an 03' Wrangler Sport, great condition and mostly stock with a 2" (I think) lift on 33X12.5's. Hardtop.

Question: I'd like to add a roof rack that mounts to the jeep, not the hardtop, and would like suggestions on which ones the "old-timers" would recommend. I've looked at Smittybuilt and read the fine-print about stock rear bumper modifications; which don't appeal to me. Are there decent looking ones that bolt on to stock body/frames?

Garvin Wilderness Rack-had one installed on my 03 Rubicon last year and only took it off when I switched from soft top back to hardtop. Never did use the 'hinge' feature to lift it up to put the soft top down-wife never wanted the top off. Handy rack-loaded it up with camping gear, hi lift, hammock frame, even moved 2x8x16's for trail bridge building one day with it!
