Roof rack/rails mounted directly to hard-top?
I need more room to store my skis in my TJ. I'd like to put them up top in a Thule (or similar) hard-plastic ski case. These normally mount to roof rails that are typically found on Explorers, Libertys, and every other SUV. I don't want to put the full rack system on my Jeep. It's too much money, and I only need this for the winter-time. I use the soft-top (or none) in the summer...if it ever comes to NW Pennsylvania this year. I sthe hard-top sturdy enough to mount some roof rails to it? I figured that I could pick these up from a salvage-yard Explorer or other SUV. What do you guys (and gals) think? Any suggestions? Thanks.
