Dose anybody have any ideas on an inexpensive roof rack system for a Jeep Cherokee with no luggage rack. I have been pondering this Idea for some time now and I end up sliding my kayak in the back of my buddy's truck. But my Cherokee gets a lot better fuel mileage. It dose have a good driprail. I have thought of rolling them on the top with some of those cheap swimy noodles or the foam blocks and even my utility trailer. Nothing seems to be simple and quick. Anybody got any ideas on this topic.

I will have to check out the ladder racks. I thought about building something that I could remove quickly. Something that could be loaded easily. I have some left over steel tube I don't know I guess I will figure something out. Thanks.

Almost all newer vehicles do not have rain gutters. That might be the reason why the Yakima gutter mounts are so common on ebay. You shouldn't have to pay much for a set - even with locks. Used bars are pretty low priced too - so long as you go for the shorter lengths.

Then the Quick 'n' Easy racks are the way to go. You add a 2x4 of whatever length you need and you have a secure rack that'll handle your canoe with no trouble. I used them for years on my Ford Ranger and they worked great.
