Coming from a Land Rover background, I've seen roof mounted tents. Is there anything like this available for the KJ?

Thanks!

Just don't leave the car running for air conditioning!

Something like this?



I've seen these b4 and it says in the description:

As you may have guessed, these roof top tents are a great addition for a Jeep. Cherokees are a natural, and you can mount the tents on crossbars using the rain gutters or the factory rack on the Grand Cherokee and Jeep Liberty as well.

Wow - thanks for the replies!

I tried the mopar link and it says Error: 500.

The autohome site looks more promising...

I was thinking of the Overland tent model.

Thanks!

If you don't mind, why go with a roof mounted tent?

Those tents are pretty neat, too bad they go from $1500 to $2000 plus.
But I can see where it would be good if you're camping in bear country.

Roof tents are cool! This is from the Denver Auto Show last month. Yes, a bit expensive.
