Our Garvin Wilderness Expedition Racks are designed to carry your gear wherever your trail takes you. The rack is designed to work with either hard or soft tops. The racks mount securely to the front windshield brackets and to the rear body of the Jeep in two locations. Drilling required for installation. The Expedition Rack can hold up to 300 lbs. off-road or on road. Our specially engineered tilting feature allows you to raise the unloaded rack for lowering or raising the soft top.
bought this a few months ago and it is an amazing roof rack. Best feature is the fact that it tilts back so I can still take my soft top down in the summer. The rack gives a lot of leeway to mess up so it's super easy to install. the only issue is that when installing the rear lower bracket the instruction says to drill the hole 2'' from the bottom of the tub but I would suggest drilling them slightly lower, maybe 1/16 of an inch or a couple of milemeters.
The rack is designed to tilt all the way back and rest on the ground. The only issue would be an aftermarket bumper that would prevent it from tilting it all the way back.

I have a 2006 jeep tj x. Will I have to remove my windshield lights if I buy this roof rack? Looks like it interferes with the mounting of the lights.

Thanks for asking. If your windshield lights mount to the outer screws on the windshield hinge then yes the Garvin Industries Expedition Rack for TJ Wrangler will interfere with them.
