Gun scabbard for the roof of a ZJ?

I like to use my ZJ to take a couple of friends hunting with me. The problem is that with all our hunting gear it gets pretty crammed since we all keep our rifles in hard cases and we all usually have a rifle and a shotgun with us.

The ZJ doesn't seem to be conducive to the regular gun racks and I don't like the cloth racks that hang off the back of the front seats.

I am looking for a scabbard system that is mounted to the inside roof where I can slide my guns in while standing at the back under the rear hatch.

Has anyone seen anything like that?

I don't do fab work or I would try to make one.

I finally mounted the Big Sky and I LOVE IT! Everyone that sees it falls in love with it. The screw holes didn't line up with anything but the roof, so I pulled down the headliner, riveted 2 steel bars, about 1/8 inch thick, onto the ribs in the roof and pre mounted the Big Sky screws on the bars, put the headliner back up poking the screws through the liner and then mounted the Big Sky. It looks stock and hold 2 rifles very nicely. At some point I might move the first one over from the center and add another one. This mounting method made the gun rack very sturdy and when the rifles are in the mount, they are not very noticeable since no one ever seems to look at the ceiling of the Jeep.
