Kayak rack for 2011 soft top

Does anyone have any suggestions for carrying a whitewater kayak on my 2 door soft top if I have the top off? I have seen the Lange originals ones, but not looking to spend $500. I would be interested in something that connected to the sound bar and windshield header if the was a way to put wedges on there to strap the boat down to.

Thanks for the help.

Justin

I haul two 9-footers on my 2 door with the roof down, the right pads, and a combo of good straps. I secure it to the roll bar, and near the winshield where the loop is at the top/center and then the front and rear. I can go into more detail if your interested, maybe take pics next time I do it. Not sure if your specifically looking for a roof rack system.

That would actually be too long for a whitewater kayak, plus more invasive than I want. Thanks for the info though.
