I just got a kayak and wanted to mount a Roof rack on my hard top to carry my kayak to the water, but at the sports store they said their guide says my 98TJ can only mount a rack that can carry a surf board or ski's.

And that the 40ish lbs that my kayak weighs is to heavy for my hardtop

I have seen tons of Hardtops with roof racks, most of them are installed just above the door frames.

Any one know if this is a safe thing to do? or will it cave in my hardtop?

I can just tie down the kayak ( or my girls 2 powerwheel jeeps) to my roll bars with my soft top down, but would suck if it rains having that stuff tied on top

I bought one from quadratec to carry my 14' kayak and haven't had any problems....but, it doesn't mount to the top. It's one with the frame that mounts by the tail-lights and at the windshield. Expensive, but works like a champ.
