Until I recently removed my AEV tire carrier I had very good luck with a simple windshield light bar, and a homemade 3/4 inch pipe support for the rear. The rear support was bolted to the top of the AEV carrier.

I've also used the front light bar and a rear "bed extender" like this one, only assembled to make it taller.



The foam blocks on a hardtop might work as well.

Now back to a 2013 JKU Rubicon with "stuff", planning 37's with minimal lift.

I've tried them all... Jeeps are still the best. (0||||0)

I've been using a Cargo Master Kongo Cage with Yakima rack system to carry two Kayaks works great . No Drilling and you can take off ( Hard ) top without removing too - heres a pic to give you an Idea . See post # 12

Cant say for sure as I have a hard top . It does tilt back by just removing two front nuts . My hard top can come right off without tilting though .

Easy.

One set of Thule Gutter mounts:

And load bars:

And this kit:

I had the 65" and cut them down. Worked great, then I got a Gobi rack and was able to move the gunnel mounts to that.
