Soft Top Roof Racks!
Thinking that I want to buy myself a roofrack that works with a soft top, and still allows me to pull it down at whim. Just starting to research the idea now, but if you have one, or know anything about one, please post away. I'd love to see what the fellow soft topers do.

The crossbars will slide to either the front or back inside of a track so all you have to do is slide the crossbars and whatever load is on it, and put the top up or down..
I have the Kargo Master cage and rack and it works great. To hinge it back to put the top up and down just takes an extra minute or two. It has 3/4 inch bolts it the front that have to come out to hinge it back. I bought a wrench that I carry with me just for that.

Here's mine. It's a Kargo Master rack (same as 95-YJ above, but without the full cage), with a converted receiver basket strapped on. Just as he mentioned, it's only two 3/4" bolts up front and I can flip it back about a foot or so, enough to get the soft top up or down--it's a one-man operation and works great. The KC's are wired through the tubing with a quick disconnect near the passenger side mirror.
