Then again... if it's cheap enough maybe that's the way to go and upgrade later if ever needed.

|rfegarber||the kayak i will be hauling is only approx. 40lbs. so it would be close to only 20lbs on the front end alone plus the wind resistance and movement from bumps on the road etc.|

the chrome lightbar i had before was very thin.
the new lightbar is better. IMO it is strong enough for 1-2 kayaks.

the light rack will hold the extra lbs.
itīs mounted in the same way than the front of the other racks like this one: http://www.quadratec.com/products/12138_000_07.htm

|jpdocdave||i don't know about tj's, but just about every light rack that goes on will cause the windshield frame to rust. if you have to drill into the body anywhere, make sure you seal it very well, don't just drill and bolt.|

how sturdy are these light racks???
I am rigging up a kayak rack.. I am building the back by myself but I am going to buy a light rack for the front end and rig up the kayak holder to it instead of dropping over $200 on a tacky front end kayak rack.
My question is to anyone how has seen these racks or who has them. Are these racks sturdy enough to hold an extra 40lbs in wind and resistance?
