Default Rooftop tent

Is anyone using a rooftop tent on a 2 door? Wondering if the stock rack will hold it and how they fit.

also I saw this one with only 6k on it.

I've seen them on a four door, but not a 2 door. Isn't the rack a little shorter?

The weight rating on the stock roof rack is 200 lbs. I'm over that by myself. Throw on a tent, sleeping bags, etc and you're way over what it's meant to hold. I would look into replacing it with something more robust

Am I the only one here that's skeptical about a 20 year old Blazer with only 6K on it?

Yep! Some detective work could help with confirming if it really is a low-mileage vehicle. E.g. checking if the original oil filter is or other consumables have been replaced, the wear of shoes on the brake pedal, etc.
