Roof rack for tent, Unlimited

Can anyone recommend a full length roof rack to carry a 2 man tent as well as accessories for a 2008 Unlimited, does not matter where it is from as we have to import here anyway, looking for something strong with good capacity as we intend to tour Kenya next year. Anybody got any pics?

MBRP (MRBP?) or a Gobi would be the two I'd look at.

I have a 2011 and just purchased one of the MBRP ones. I liked it better than the Gobi because I can still remove the hard top with my hoist system in the garage. The Gobi would not allowed me to use the hoist, but you also keep a rack with a soft top or no top. I also didn't like having to worry about which rear bumper I get when the time comes. I'm supposed to get it Thursday, but then going out of town for a week so it will be a couple of weeks before I get around to installing it.

I will mention that Front Runner Offroad would have been my first choice for a 07-10, but they are coming out with a new one for the 11's that bolts directly to the roll cage. They told me that they had a picture of the entire jeep being lifted off the ground from the rack! I was really interested in this one, but it pretty much removes any hopes of taking the top off ever again... big con for me.

MBRP JKU Rack-

Plenty strong enough for RTT



It will assist hardtop removal and will remain with rack, has 350lb mobile cap. and over 700lb static





It has options for full/partial/basket/lightbar--Quadratec "Off Camber" rack



Good luck
