Roof racks

Looking for a roof rack. I like both Kargo master and Garvin rack. Anyone have any input on eather of the rack systems. Are there any other similar racks out there?

I have run the Garvin for a couple of years now. No complaints!

Bestop just came out with the Highrock Overhead Rack, it's in the latest Quadratec catalog. I've tried to get some info on the "no drill, clamps directly to the body" install but haven't gotten any feedback because it's such a new product. It looks good and the price is a lot less than the others ( $270.00 with the basket). Granted it only covers the rear of the roof (150 lbs of storage). Anyone have anymore info on this product?

My roof rack is off a Ford Explorer. 6 drill holes and I was done. I did measure more than twice though. LOL

Good idea but kinda hard to do with a soft top.

the Kargomaster has the lowest COG, and the strongest rating...plus it takes upn less space in the rear since it doesn't come all the way down to the bumper

The Gobi Rack trumps the Kargomaster in LCOG and weight rating.
The Gobi Rack holds up to 600 lbs and the basket is built-in to the rack, so it sits lower than any other system.
