    Hi All

    Looking to buy a RTT but not sure in which roof rack to go with. I'm looking at either the ALPHA or ALPHA 2 by TuffStuff. ALPHA 2 is 140ish lbs and ALPHA is roughly 165. I'm not a fan of drilling into the roof of the Jeep itself, do I have any options on the market to accommodate or would drilling a roof rack be my only option? I do plan to take it on trails from easy/moderate nothing crazy difficult. Any ideas or suggestions on brands/models would be greatly appreciated!

    This setup looks very secure to support the weight of the RTT as the hardtop is not designed to handle loads alone. The other choices are exterior cage roll bar over the hardtop but drilling leaves a low profile carrier.
