TJ Roof Top Tent?

Ive been looking at the Mycube® lightweight roof top tent. I already have a Thule, My question is, will a factory hardtop support the kind of weight I am considering?

The tent unit weighs roughly 80 lbs. + 2 adults roughly 400 lbs. = at the very least 500 lbs.

have you thought about installing a roof rack and placing the tent on top of that?

that's how I've seen most of them mounted

btw how much does that sucker cost? I wouldn't mind having one
