Price: $12.00
Pros: I build it, Cost about $12 just for bed liner paint.
Cons: Slightly heavy because I did a little overkill on the floor part. But I can dance on it and nothing will bend.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I found some old pool fencing in my back yard and built this roof rack out of it, then painted it with bed liner. Took about 5 total hours, and cost about $12 just for the paint, I held it on using hose clamps to the factory roof rack rails on the sides. Doesn't budge at all when I shake it, and it comes off in about 2 minutes.

Price: $450.00
Pros: Solid, looks good
Cons: Original mount was on factory rails - ripped it off completely
Recommended? Yes

Comments: This is a Defender roof rack, couldn't find a selection for it. After removing what was left of the factory rails and mounting it through the roof into the frame (after repairing the holes) it is now solid and works well.

Price: $5.00
Pros: I only paid for the bolts used to attach it to my roof
Cons: I used cheap paint and now the bars a rusting a bit
Recommended? Yes

Comments: My Cherokee did not come with the crossbars, so I decided to weld some up. I knew a local teacher in a vocational school and he let me use the mig welder and some scrap stock. I used 2" angle welded to either end of 2" square tube stock. after 16 welds and some grinding I was done. To mount it I took some 1" bar stock and cut 2.5" - 3" sections and tapped them for 3/8" bolts. I used those bars and the bolts as a makeshift clamp to hold the bars onto my roof. I used rustoleum paint to coat it. After proper prep and priming it still chips off. The only thing I would do differently is to use a better paint.

Price: $1,800.00
Pros: Best out there. Lot's or room and extras. Strong.
Cons: If you live in the woods, do not use the mounts that put the stuff on the outer edge. They will get hit and bend, ect. Also, cost a lot of money!
Recommended? Yes

Comments: They did not have the option for it, but this is the Gobi rack for the Jeep XJ. It is the most expensive, but I will say it is 100% worth it. I have hit trees with it and stuff, and nothing it wrong with it. Has a tone of room, and looks sick. I got all the extras with the Highlift jack mount, axe & shovel mount, and jerry can mounts. I ended up breaking the high lift mount because it got hung up on a tree. Has spots for 6 lights on it.
