Cross bar roof racks for 2 Kayaks

Hey There,

I purchased my first 2018 4door JKU last august. Since then I'm getting into Kayaking and looking for a somewhat in expensive way to carry them. Just doing some looking online was a surprised because it's looking to be harder than I'd of thought. I saw a few rails but they seem to only support 88lbs. Can anyone point me in a direction where I'd be able to carry 2 10 to 12 foot kayaks that won't cost me a ton of money? Few hundred bucks was what I was hoping to have to spend.

Thanks in advance!

I got a set of open box Yakima Whisbar HD that I originally had gutter mounted. I didn't care for the gutter mount so I installed the track system on my hardtop. I leave the foot base mounts in the track and can just drop the rails w/feet on as needed. The rack is probably rated for more weight than I'd want to put on the hardtop. There are posts on this site and others of owners who have installed the tracks on their hardtops.
