Hello all.. I just traded in for a 08 Wrangler X with the freedom top. I'm moving to Hawaii in 2 months and would like to install a roof rack prior to shipping the vehicle.
The rack will only need to carry surf boards.
Im thinking of installing a light bar around the front window, minus the lights. Then perm mounting a yakima or thule bar in the middle of the back portion of the hard top. This way I should still be able to take the front part of the roof off, but also be able to strap down a couple surf boards.
Does anyone has a setup like this? Are there other options?
