Question Rack for a soft top Jeep Wrangler?

Im in the market for a snowboard rack for my '04 wrangler w/ soft top.

Since this is my first time buying a rack I have no idea what im looking for.

Jeep world suggests the following options:
Jeep Wrangler Ski Racks and Carriers

Anyone had experience with jeeps and installing a rack? Is rear mounted the way to go or is there some way to do a roof mounted system?

Thanks for the help!

Can't say I've seen a top mounted one on a jeep... But I have seen more then a couple rear mounted. The rear mounted makes a lot more sense to me personally. Would be really easy to load and unload your gear, vs having to basically jump on the side of your car to get everything down.

I say rear mounted is the way to go.

You want to put a roof rack on a soft top? Uh...go with the spare tire mounted one.

There is a dude I see in Denver all the time with a green lifted wrangler and he just mounted with rack to his hood. Looks hilarious!

Yea I saw the congo rack, doesnt look too bad imo, but it seems like the installation is more trouble than its worth, anyone else a jeep owner that can recommend a product they have used in the past? Looks like ill be going with the rear mounted.
