This all-purpose crossbar system (includes front and rear) will handle a variety of loads up to 175lbs, from small watercraft to a load of lumber. Each crossbar is ruggedly built from 1" steel tubing and powder-coated for rust protection. To put a soft top down, simply pull the snapper pins to remove the crossbars. The crossbars have tabs for lights and provisions to add a cargo basket at a later date.
I put a WP rack on my TJ years ago, and I'm planning on putting it on my other TJ too. Other than the rattling of the locking pins (zip ties pretty much fixes that problem) and a few whistles, I'd not hesitate to recommend it. The powder coat has held up well, but be prepared to soak your windshield hinge bracket bolts for DAYS (maybe weeks) to get those Torx bolts out without stripping the internal star indentations, using some of that good stuff for frozen/rusted bolts from NAPA or AZ. One thing, though, I was surprised at how much wind resistance you get from the basket that goes with this rack, even empty. I don't think the rack alone makes a big fuel impact though. Pay attention to where you drill the rear rack bolt holes or you'll end up with a rack angled up, like mine. No big problem, but it probably catches more air, so (duplicate) ropes & bungees are a given.
