Default Calmini Safari/Roof Rack ???

I am want to add a Calmini roof rack to my 1987 tintop Samurai but need some measurements to make sure I will still be able to get in and out of the garage.
I also have a sunroof and am wondering if it will still be able to crack open to the first notch.

Does anyone have any of the following measurements
- Top of samurai to the top of the rack
- Top of samurai to the bottom of the rack

Thanks in advance...

I'm sorry I don't have the measurements you need, but have you looked at the mounting points for the roof rack? Unless they have changed the design I thought that they mounted to the windshield hinges and the rear corner of the bed 'ledge'. I didn't think they mounted on a tintop.

Yes, they have a specific rack for the tinop that does mount different than the soft top.

This is the one I am looking at :
Hardtop Rack

Thanks for any info !

Nice. The only one I have seen in person was their soft top version.

The thread is very specific about the CalMini rack.
Not sure why you even posted in the first place with a "I got one off of EBAY for $30" because you did NOT get a CalMini rack or even one that is close to being like it.

I am sure you got a great deal on the roof rack but that is not what I am looking for. I thought the thread was pretty clear with the question.

Please read the thread before hitting reply....
If I had asked for general roof rack info them your reply would fit, but yet you still didn't answer the question asked in the first place.....
Thanks for trying to help but not the info I am hunting for.
