jeepluver1956 tdrew - thanks, I was also thinking about the Dry Dock and the light bar. Keep most posted if you decide to give this a try.

I think if you do a search here (or the other JK forums) for "Yakima" or "kayak", you'll find what you're looking for. But keep in mind that the Freedom Top is not rating for carrying any load.

I'm in the same boat (get it? Boat!) , looking for a secure way to haul my tandem touring 'yak, and have come across two options I'm considering:

1) the Yakima Dry Dock in the rear and the Warrior light bar in the front

or

2) the Congo Cage from Kargomaster.

Still trying to decide. There have been some issues with the cage, so I'm leaning towards the Yakima, but we'll see.
