I bought the trail FX J020, just wanted a basic rack for throwing gear, mountain bikes for trips.
It's not a rack I want to have on all year, biggest disadvantage (for me) is that the rack won't pivot out of the way in order to clear access for folding up/down the soft top.

I hear the kongo racks are nice....

Roof Rack TrailFX J020

Long story short, I bought it on ebay for $200, but was missing box 2 of 2, seller refunded my money and he had no interest in getting back / paying for thsipping to get the parts (box 1 of 2) he had sent me. I was missing all four sides of the rack, bought some pipes for $120, and then added a yakima system with crossbars, turned out good!

What are you going to use it for? I got a pair of gutter racks for $100. That's cheap.
