Snowboard rack
what would be my cheapest option to carry @ snowboards with the TJ. The actual racks are pricey, then you still have to add the snowboard/ski carrier. I would assume a lot of guys/gals carry skies snowboards with there jeeps. I dont think it will fit in the cab but I might be wrong?

I got both full doors (with mirrors on) to fit inside the Jeep, I would think a snowboard should fit

sounds alittle bootleg, but i always just tied mine to the bumper in between the grille and bumper. I have one of those large chrome bumpers. I live in ohio so this works for me and nobody second glances it :) . just be sure to wrap the middle edges of the board to keep it from jiggling around on the freeway and/or damaging your board/skis/grille. strap it down really tight. you can actually fit 2 boards easily putting them together snow side/snow side.

The reason i do this is that im too cheap to afford a hard top or the exterior bar frame cargo thingie. works for me.

also i hear there is a mount that tightens to the spare tire and can hold two boards. or a (thule?) rack that connects to the hitch and carries, like, 6 boards horizontally behind the spare like some types of bike racks.

I bought a 2000 Grand Cherokee roof rack from a junkie park for $50, cut it down to size, bolted into my hardtop with boat silicone around the holes. It is flawless.
