TJ Roof Racks

I have a 04 TJ and have been carrying my mountain bike on the back with a rack that mounts over the tire. About 2 months ago a got rear ended, nothing serious, just a bump really. The other vehicle did not fair too well. My biggest worry was what would have happened to my mountian bike if it was back there (recently got my dream bike and it wasn't cheap). So started looking for roof racks...... does anyone have one?, any that you would suggest? Can you really put down the soft top with it installed?? Any information would be helpful

Kargo Master is pretty good. Stupid strong, and looks good. My only beef with it is the coating they put on it, but I quess it's been reformulated or something.

I would never mount a mountain bike on the roof of a Jeep.

Why? I wanted a couple wrestle their bikes on top of a Subaru. They had all the nicest Yakima & RockyMounts rail mount stuff too. I went into the store, came out about 10 minutes later, and they were still screwing with the bikes. Takes me 10 seconds to secure my bike on my hitch mount.



If I get rear ended, oh well...thats what car insurance is for.

Do you have a garage or carport? Don't get a roof rack.
