This Cargo Rack can be easily installed to Roll Bar when needed for transporting kayaks, canoes, small boats, lumber or 4' x 8' sheets of plywood. When not in use it can quickly be removed and stowed behind the back seat. Cannot be used with hard top or convertible in up position. Made from durable 1-1/2 inch heavy wall steel tubing.
I purchased this to haul a couple 112' paddle boards. The instructions make it appear the front bracket attaches via the front surround bolt, it doesn't. The front rack clamps just like the back rack. If you want to keep your surrounds in place, you have to mount the front rack 10" back from the window header. Ideally, it should be closer to the windshield. This could have easily been designed to mount to the roll bar using the front surround bolt, which would have made removal and replacement quick n easy. The way it's designed, you have to have a ½" wrench and/or socket to install or remove the rack. Also, the bolts are too short for the back bracket, I have to purchase four 2½" bolts. The instructions say to cut the foam padding out from under the roof bar cover. Really? Why not just provide longer bolts? I also purchased four wing nuts and replaced one of the standard nuts on each of the outside mounting bracket. This way I can remove or install the rack with out having to have a ½" wrench on hand. Just remove the wing nut, swing the lower bracket out of the way and remove the rack. It is a sturdy rack, I gave it three stars because of the lack of a better design for mounting the front rack, and the fact I had to purchase hardware that should have been included!

For this product, the top has to be down I'm assuming?
