Rack suggestions

Any suggestions for a rack or carrier system to load cargo or a Thule carrier over or on the hard top. '10 4 dr sahara.
Could use to load skis,etc.
Does anyone make a clamp on type or is everything body mounted?
Looked at hitch receiver models and saw some good ones but would like to go up top!
Any suggestions would be great.

Lmao I almost asked what brand makes 34c and 34b but then I realized that both Blonde and Brunette make good products.

Anyway the MBRP makes the best load carrying rack rated at 700lbs, but it stays with the hardtop--





Here's a JKU back east with a RTT on his MBRP



MBRP makesem in Canada, or you can getem from Quadratech

They have FULL OPTIONS for windshield light bar/basket/full top coverage-checkemout

Yeah but Gobi kinda proud of their product. Lol! They ain't cheap. But there the only ones that I have found that tilt back so you can take your soft top off for the jk. Even though there high dollar after looking at them it most definitely one of those must haves on my list of things I want.

Yah, they're pretty expensive, but I've heard they're built very well and are pretty strong. I'd like to get one someday, but that's pretty far down on my mod list.

Thanks all for your input. Checked out gobi today. Almost 1500 delivered--- ouch. But holds a significant load and very well made plus no drilling. A lot of $$$ though.....
