    Has anyone used one of these internal soft top roof racks?

    Really cool idea, soft top closes over the rack when not in use. Sure, my kids will hate me when I use it to haul skis/boards in the winter, but the alpine system should drown out their whining.

    i like the concept. looks like a great idea for carrying kayaks with my soft top. A little pricy though.

    Following. I wonder what the weight limit would be.. would be good hauling kayak and pieces of lumber.

    I'm following too. From looking at their website, it seems like you can use the same bars that fit under the soft top if you ever switch to a hard top, you just need the rain gutter clamps. Specs on weight limits look really good for a no-drill and non-caged rack system.

    Very easy installation. 5 minutes. Racks are attached to the roll bars using screws for the freedom top and bolts provided for the factory holes on the rear.
