new to Jeep, questions about roof rack

Hi All, just purchased my first Jeep ever, loving it. I have the factory installed side roof rails, but I'd like some crossbars so I can carry some items, usually will be lumber, ETC on top. Ive been searching the internet, but Im not exactly clear on what I'll need. Any one have any links they can post as to what will work with the factory side rails? Im not looking to add luggage or a bike, just wanted some cross rails to strap stuff too. Any help would really be appreciated!!

1 1/4" conduit worked well for me.

My solution was galvanized pipe and u-bolts.

I think Thule and Yakima both make something that'll work.

Thule 450 Crossroads foot pack. Check rackattack.com. They do a package deal w/ the feet & load bars. Usually the best price around. That's the set up I have mine and its rock solid
