Gotta question here.....can anyone help?

I have a 45lb, 11 foot longboard surfboard to go on top of factory softtop. I was thInking that instead of a full utility rack I could attach a lights rack for the front . But what about the back? Is there a rack that can be attached to spare which extends above roof ?

I appreciate any comments, and thanks.

If you have the side windows rolled up, some bungee straps or a ratchet straps will hold.
Just loop em over the board and under the side roll bars.

I see on some pickup trucks they put a bracket in their trailer receiver. It goes up like a foot ball goal or a square y. They use it when they have a rack bar over the front of the bed but not across the rear to carry long items.
It ain't easy being cheesy:
