Lifted TJs with roof racks

I have a TJ with a 2.5" SL in 32s but I want to lift it higher and get larger tires, I'm just curious how TJs look lifted that high with racks

Oh and that's a Kargo Master rack...custom fitted, chopped, and welded to fit lower than the original height. Gives me about an inch across any spot on the soft top. Real snug fit and keeps everything lower, better center of gravity

They are just the sylvania halogens you can buy from Pepboys.

I am definitely about to order a rack, but would love to hear more pros/cons of the different brands/models. I don't need one for looks, as I haul lots of stuff up top, often. always got lumber, tree stands, kayak, canoe, conduit, coolers ,decoys, etc. I need a bad azz sturdy rack that will make the long haul. will probably rhino-line it for more protection. I also need one that I can make the top transition with. any ideas or info is greatly appreciated. am planning a lift, but am going to install the rack first...probably within the week. its hunting season and I need to get the watercrafts into action.

The Garvin wilderness rack is the best rack out there. They make all types of mounts and adapters for canoes or bikes or anything you can think of. The top transition is very easy too. Remove two bolts and loosen another two and fold back. I got mine used on craigslist for 200 but I would easily pay the 800 for a new one it is sturdy and well built.

Found a guy selling an old roofrack online that was buried in his garage, give him $15 for it. Scrounge up the hardware from my basement to mount it, sand, paint it and boom. Primo roofrack for $15

Honestly I have no idea, it was in an old guy's garage. I drilled 4 holes in it, hit it with a can of Tremclad and slapped it on.

I bought 4 ford explorer roof racks off Craigslist for $20 and drilled holes into my hard top, siliconed the nuts and bolts, and just made it through winter in buffalo with zero leaks. Just another way I've made mine unique. The racks made for wranglers look weak compared to mine...
