hardtop with spare tire mount

I don't have a spare as of right now but I don't want to mount it on the back again. I want one mounted to the roof. I thought about doing a thru the roof in my hardtop. I wanna mount to the middle crossbar on my rollbars. But I'm not sure how to seal it or keep it sealed. I get alot of rain in upstate NY so keeping the rain out is has to happen. I thought about mounting it strait to the top but I doubt it would take the constant weight of a 31 or bigger when I upgrade. Whose got ideas on how to seal it or re enforce the hardtop to take the weight?

make something to take up the space between the roll bar and the top, so you have a firm surface to mount too and minimize vibrations.... maybe?

i would trail ride with it up there, although your hard top would be cool with a sun roof

Funny u said that I've got a sunroof on order. And I was just throwin ideas around I don't want to get a roofrack. I think im gonna get a mount for the wheel well like a zj or xj. Its nice not having a seat in the back. Whenever someone wants to go on a road trip they always ask to use the jeep and never want to pitch in on gas. So I say screw u guys I'm goin muddin lol
