Anyone know of a decent rack that can be installed on a hardtop? Also preferably fairly reasonably priced. I don't intend to put a lot of weight on the top ever, but I figure it could handle the weight of a canoe or kayak. Ideally I am thinking of some sort of rack that is simply two crossbars.
This is basically what I'm looking for, just wonder if there are any alternatives that are a little cheaper...I'm a broke college student (and I just bought a new shotgun) so it may have to wait awhile if I want this one lol
I did not buy mine, it was installed when I bought the Jeep. It is a Defender rack and has proven its use on trips to TruckHaven. Not sure how much it cost but it is mounted by drilling holes in the hard top. I do like the the mount, however do not like the fact that when the hard top comes off so does the rack. Also, if I remove the rack from the hard top to mount a tub mounted roof rack, I will now have holes in my hard top. Guess I am saying think it over as it is a one way trip.
I know....But I am thinking a kayak would strap right onto the roll cage pretty easily if I have the top off. But I am going to have to find a decent rack I don't want it to be a cheap shitty rack, especially since its so permanent. Might just have to save up for the Yakima rack.
all I need to do is grow the balls to drill holes in my hardtop.
I just stopped at one of the local junkyards yesterday and picked up an explorer roof rack for mine. That is the same write up I saw a few years ago and decided I wanted to do that to mine, but never got around to it.
I can only please one person a day and today is not your day and tomorrow is not looking good either!
