Opinions, Kargo Master Congo Roof Rack

I'm trying to decide which roof rack to install on my 2001 Wrangler Sport so I can carry a 12 foot kayak.

What I'm looking for is any advice on a Kargo Master Congo Cage. I'm wondering if the center bar for the soft top will interfere with the kayak riding on both the forward and back cross bars of the roof rack without "rocking" back and forth on the soft top center bar.

I've researched the SmittyBilt and a few others and I'm leaning towards the Kargo Master. Any advice is welcomed.

Thanks

Nice Rack. I had one with a Yakima basket on my '06 LJ for about a month. Took it off though. Too much wind resistance and power loss. But then again I was running 4.88s and 37s. If you have just the rack you might contact the soft top bar.

Thanks for the advice.
After a lot more research yesterday I ordered an Olympic Sports Rack. It will sit high enough to eliminate any worry about my yak rubbing on the soft top center cross bar. It also breaks at the cross bar above the windshield to allow the whole rack to tilt up and allow raise/lower the soft top.
Hopefully this will work for me. I should get delv. in a week or so and I'll post some pics after the install. Thanks again.
