Soft Top Roof Rack and Tent

Hey guys - Looking for a little help, again. I have a soft top 97 NAS and I'm looking for a roof rack and tent for the truck. Does anyone have any recommendations? I have used an Eezi-Awn tent in Africa, but don't know what roof racks are compatible with soft tops and/or that tent.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Adam

Only the original Safety Devices rack or the repop sold by Urban Offroad are compatible with the soft top (caveat: Rovers North sold the ugliest square-tube rack in the world for the NAS soft top for a while - I dont know if they still offer it. It was beyond hideous.)

The UO and SD racks are both "basket" style - which complicates the installation of a tent. One guy here had some custom rails made and installed the tent "above" the rack. Myself just had a custom rack made that works with the SD rear ladder. A search for "Rover Hybrids Rack" will bring up the thread about my rack.

How are you going to mount the tent?
