question about roof racks on my TJ

Ive got a 97 sport and Im assuming a factory hardtop..its pretty nice...but it kindve limits my ability to take my surfboards out without removing all space inside the jeep (boards range from 7-9 feet) so Ive been talking to a local kayak place and looking to install some YAKIMA hardracks up top permenantly onto the hardtop....they said theyve done it before and its ok.....anyone know anything about if the hard top can still be ok with this..or if it wont hold up with some boards up on it....Im jsut wondering what others would think of doing this and how itd fare...thanks....btw....Im VERY new to jeeps...

Re: question about roof racks on my TJ

only problem I can see is you have to have your top on to haul the boards. There are alot of nice roof racks available that mount to the body and can be used with or without a top. The only problem is the racks aren't cheap, but I doubt the Yakima rack is either.
