Sorry for the wait. I just did it today and I took off the top rack(4 bolts) and it s not heavy. I would say it would take about 4 min max to take out the bolts and the top rack.

I have a Warrior Products Safari sport Rack. I bought it way back in 1998.. Still going strong. However, I did have the rear hoop replaced with custom tabbed stainless steel.. A lot of other racks just look clumsy on a TJ. This one does not, thats why we bought it. For the money spent you can't go wrong with this rack,,

I've been shopping roof racks for the last year. I'm sold on the Garvin Wilderness. It ain't cheap, but neither was my first wife's retrofit....My second and third wife had substancial factory racks that held up pretty good, but my current GF has them all beat

Ive been looking into a roof rack for some time. Going with either the kargo master or the garvin one. Do you have to buy the rack and basket seperate? Also noticed the diff lengths...2 for TJ...and 1 for LJ...Is the longer of the 2 for the TJ a better fit? Wish i could see more close views of them on a few different TJs.

I have the Kargo Master Congo Cage. It's very sturdy. I haven't put the top on yet, but it will be fairly easy. The rack is hinged in the back, so you only need to remove the 2 front mount bolts and swing it up and back.

Gobi Jeep

by far the best Jeep rack out there (MikeYJ I am clarifying my position) get's out of the way for putting the top down, and if you hard top in the future, it is out of the way for that as well.

Get the ladder and faring - well worth the money. The stealth version keeps a nice low profile wile giving you an expanded metal walking platform and tiedown anchor point
