I used to tote my canoe all the time.
I used a simple cheap front round lightbar like this:
and in the rear one of these assembled to be tall instead of long:
This setup worked really well until the lightbar noise caused me to ditch the light and the mount. It was pretty great in that it kept the canoe off the Jeep entirely and worked with the hard top and the soft top either up or down.
Pro-tip: an anti rattle hitch gizmo worked to help keep the rear mount in place and keep it from making racket. Without it, the top of the mast wanted to swing back and forth several inches due to the slop in the receiver and the distance from that point.
