Kayak on Wrangler Unlimited Soft top

I have 2 kayaks one is 39lbs and the other is 49lbs. Would it hurt to haul the 2 on top as long as something is in between keeping it from tearing. If you guys think a rack would be better do you know of any that are fairly cheap. Thanks

I wouldn't do it with my soft top. I got a Congo Cage and just the cage by itself wasn't that bad. I put up to 4 kayaks up there and hauled them form MA to FL back to MA and then to ME last summer. No issues. The weight you are talking about on top of the soft top bows is pretty heavy for the size of the bow.
