I'm new to the Jeep world and just purchased a 2014 JKU Sport mid-December.  I need to outfit it with a quality roofrack that will hold several hundred pounds worth of canoe and assorted gear.  Would prefer one that did not require drilling.  There are lots of options out there and was wondering if you guys had any advice for me.  Thanks in advance...Jerry

I have a Rage basket on my TJ and really like it. But it's mounted to a Kongo Kage rack that's rated for 500 lbs and that's where the strength is.

Thanks!  I was looking at the Kongo Kage.  The Jeep is my daily driver and work frequently finds me driving across country to NV, AZ, UT, ID, etc..  Do you have much wind noise and/or a dramatic loss of mpg?  Thanks, Jerry

I have a Lange rack for sale. It mounts using the existing windshield pillar posts. No drilling. The rear rack mounts on the spare. It would work for a canoe depending on length. There is some air noise, but I have wondered if adding an airfoil would help with that. I haven't found a weight limit, but here's the rack info if you want to check it out. http://www.langeoriginals.com/langeZC/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=12&zenid=e8b26cf3b583246d65e8d98a3ce158e9
