Roof rack ??

I am looking to get a roof rack/cage for trail gear storage and because I like the look. I want one that mounts to my roll cage but can't find much especially at a reasonable price. My question is, could I buy a $100-200 rack/cage and and mount it with u-bolts or some type of bracket to my roll cage. Any help or info would be appreciated!

You probably could find one that is long enough to span the roll cage, but I think you'd be better off having a local welder make you one! And keep in mind that with a rack bolted to your roll cage, you won't be able to use a soft-top or anything. And anything up there is liable to get hit by tree limbs! Friend of mine did a project jeep, a CJ, and welded up a 'steel mesh' rack that bolted in behind the front seats where the rear seatbelts bolted on the cage. Looked like it belonged there-but with bolts he can remove it if needed. Still can use a bikini top or whatever to cover the front seats in rain.
