I'd get an Olympic or Garvin Personally.

What's wrong with mounting to the roll cage?

True. But some people use their soft tops for shade and I have a mesh top that could cause problems with mounting a rack to my roll bar. It's a solid idea though and if I didn't have the full mesh top I'd look into the poly performance rack.

Sorry for the HI jack OP. let us know what you figure out. It could help us in the future.

I've went with the tepui gran sabana 4 man tent for 2085$ also thought of the fact that if I were to find access to a welder and get some square steel tube I could just exo my rig and modify from there but as im very pressed for time. and travellilng right now that's not possible ive bought a gold claim and am going to work/live at it now for the summer so the roof will stay on mytruck hardtop that is and I want to go with the garvin and have looked into it arb told me no go and tepui closed before I could ask but damn for 3000$ for the garviin and the tepui tent I almost might as well get me one of these.....http://pedenrv.com/product/james-bar...rand-raid-xxl/ but then really how good is one of those going to be.. ive been researching myself for about a month and then mr helpful moderator comes out of left field with this word that makes everyone on the phone sound like they have a disorder and makes me start again hahah not that I was too far anyhow
