Roof Rack for soft top

Saw a pic in here of a roof rack set up for a ST that attached to the roll cage. Is this a home made job or is there somewhere that sell these?

I know that RoversNorth does custom stainless racks for soft tops, bolts to the rollcage in the front and has a ladder and support for the back that bolts to the body tub. I have one on mine, nicely made but pricey.

My truck has a factory rack which fits on either over the soft top or a hard top...

The Safety Devices rack for the NAS D90's is about $1600 from either Thatched Roof Garage or even your dealer.

Awesome thanks for replies it is very helpful. I think I saw a pic of the rack Jaherring has that looks simular to the two bar Thule rack which you can mount various holders for skis, snow boards and bikes which is what I was looking for. Anyone know where to find that type of rack. Hopefully it wont cost 2 grand.

Dave, are you sure on a $1600.00 ST rack. I have been looking - lost out on several bids on this site and E-bay. I have not been able to find a new rack (full top + ladder for the stock set up) for less than $1900.00 + $150 - 300 for shipping. I want that original round tube look but $$$$.
Right now, there semms to be 3 or 4 people looking and we are all either to cheap, i.e. wanting to spend $800 - 1300 on a rack or I do not know what.
Oh, and the last time I asked at the LR dealership, I was quoted $2600.00 installed ($2300 $nCarry).

Contact Thatched Roof garage. David Gage is your man. I definitely paid 1600, and $90 for shipping to a commercial address from NC.
