I recently installed the DV8 full length roof rack.

While you can't open the One-Touch roof with it on, it was the only full length rack I could find that:
• the cross bars don't touch the roof
• doesn't have have the giant frame that bolts to the cowl and rear bumper
• wasn't $1,000+ (it's only $530)

It's really easy to remove when not in use as well. It definitely gets noisier when moving at highway speeds. I have a friend who owns a metal shop; going to see if he can fabricate a slanted piece to attach to the front to try to direct more of the air upwards so it doesn't ripple across the soft roof.

Hey Matt:

So I was looking at the instructions to its installation here https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/1118/3812/files/RRJL-01_DV8_install_guide.pdf?v=1604693410 .

For argument sake, maybe with some longer screws you could put some spacers between the gutter mounts and the rack, (i.e. Step 10) that raise the rack enough to clear the folds of an open power top????

That might be worth a try. I do wonder what that would do to it's stability, especially with a full cargo load at highway speeds...
