    Probably best to fabricate one for yourself. You can probably pick up some elements from thread for the roofrack Doc Ehsan Kiani did for my CJ7 sometime back. Though I notice that there are no fully finished pics here.

    Some points to note are:
    - the hard-top usually sits a few inches higher than the soft-top
    - the rear mounts can typically be on the rear bumper or on the body just above the rear brake lights
    - The front mounts would invariably have to be on the side of the windshield frame/pillars.
    - Fabricating your own would allow you to pick the finer design elements from here and there as per your choice and vehicle needs.

    The entire structure is very solid (touch wood). Since the roof rack was made a hardtop has been put on and we just modified the height of the rack to place on the hardtop and I was again impressed with how solid it sits (touch wood again).

    Its not really a difficult or challenging fabrication, if you can find someone with experience they can probably do it quite quickly.

    BTW: If I was to do it again, the some things I would perhaps bring the overall design (specially the top rail) slightly closer to the rack on the Jeep Dakar Concept (below). The mounting points and the basics would however stay the same.
