What do you mean by "slim"? Narrow? Not tall? Close to roof?
The Maximus-3 Rhino Rack Pioneer Platform might be considered slim. (the ladders and rack rails are optional)

This... plus what are you wanting to do with it that you want it slim? I have had the Rhino Rack Pioneer platform and currently am running the Exposed Racks system.

Don't think there's one with a lower profile than Maximus 3 Pioneer rack. As mentioned the ladders and rack rail are extras......

You can buy the maximus 3 supports independently and have them shipped to Oz, and source the Pioneer Rack locally to you

Exposed Racks has a low profile rack that is probably little lower profile than the Maximus-3. I have had the Maximu-3/Pioneer set up so I can speak from experience that it is very low profile, but not quite as low as the Exposed Racks. Though it really depends what you want to do. Though we seem to be more interested in this topic than the OP!

55" Yes. 65" maybe. I have the 75". I would need to remove the rack to get the panels off.
Rack is very easy to remove. I hope that helps.

Would you trust this setup to carry two basic kayaks ??

Yep. It held my 147lb RTT and myself and my wife. So I’m confident it’ll hold 2 kayaks. Unless they’re made of solid steel. Then I’d have to reconsider it!

Yes. I run a 100lb rooftop tent. This mounts to the roll bar in 4 areas. You would need to drill into the hardtop for my setup. They also make gutter mounts that will easily carry 2 kayaks.

I'm going with an UpTop Rack. I like the fact that I can run with a full set up or still be able to take off the front with my Freedom top. Even the fact that the whole rack is easily removable and stored. The guys there are great and really test out the products for themselves.

Check'em out: https://www.uptopoverland.com/collections/jeep-jl

I decided to go with the Alpha system.
