i like this. i might go this route and get the hitch mount system.We are a Gobi reseller but a rack sounds like it's out of your budget. You could get a hatch so you can go with a hitch mounted solution.

Yeah, what he said... ^
I was also thinking maybe sideways behind or above your spare tire. Or maybe on the sides of the hardtop like some of those windshield trucks you see with the small hooks coming out the sides.
thanks if you dont mine showing some pics. I would love to see how it mounts.here is what I did. Can hold 4 snowboards or 6 pairs of skis. You gotta buy it in two pieces. Piece one. Piece two. The bike carrier, then the board carrier mounts on to that. Works great. easy to take off and locks when on so it would be a pain in the ass to steal. If you want, I can take some pics of it on my jeep.
anytime glad to help a fellow jeeper outThat's a great price on a gutter mount system. Since I already have a carrier I'm going to go with that. Thanks for the link.
