Search for thread on Thule rain gutter racks and Jeep hard top. Not a good combination. I'd like to do it too, but after researching, looks like anything you actually mount on the rack would exceed design specs for the Jeep hardtop.
I've got a JKR that I'd like to mount a roof box, skis, bikes, kayak, etc., but about the only things that wouldn't exceed design limits are a couple pairs of skis or so.
Will probably go with the Gobi, but I'd like to be able to easily remove it and am concerned about wind noise and mpg drop if mounted full time. Plus garage door opening clearance.
I drove my '98 Durango to the top of Mt. Washington, using Yakima rack system, with a 16' canoe and roof box on top, and 4 mtn. bikes on the back, but the Durango had nice, indented rack mounting channels on the top.
