With my 80 series Landcruiser gone and a 14 JKUR inbound, I am trying to get some rack ideas. I was thinking of using my existing Thule gutter mount feet and making a new platform to fit the JKUR. My first thought is to use the gutter above the passenger doors and add the Thule artificial rain gutter just above the rear window leaving the freedom panels still usable. With my old setup, I was able to have 2 adults and 2 kids up there for picnics / firework viewing. Probably 500 pounds or less with the rack weight. Does anyone see anything I am missing? Also, does anyone have any first hand experience on what this setup should hold for a weight? Sorry for the scattered thoughts and here are some pics for reference.
