Smile Roof Racks

What are the best roof racks for a 2012 wrangler sport to carry Kayaks? Does anyone know the wild boar brand ???? Thanks I don't want to drill on the hard top.

I'd recommend an all purpose Thule roof rack.

Here's a YouTube video of one on a Wrangler -

We put one of these on a cheap 1984 Toyota Carina (4 door Celica) that we bought during a long trip in New Zealand. It worked great for hauling around a kayak.

You just need a few tie down straps to secure it in place.

I looked at roof racks at one point, and narrowed it down to these two (I wasn't concerned about drilling into the Jeep if necessary...that's what silicone sealant is for ):

WILD BOAR PRODUCTS: Cargo Rack Systems for your Jeep Wrangler

Garvin Wilderness Racks

Gobi was another one that I really liked...Alec at EAD Offroad here on the forum can give you info about their setup.

Some other WF links:

Some links to threads from JKF:

This one deals mainly with the Gobi racks, but there's some info on the WB, as well: Choosing a cargo rack - Gobi or Wild Boar

Best Roof Rack

If you read all this, you'll have a degree in JK Rackology. Not a master's or a PhD, but a solid foundation of roof rack knowledge.
