Hello all,

I have a 2017 Limited and I am attempting to find a way how I can mount a platform to the roof without using the roof rack. The wife and I enjoy taking forest service roads, find a clear spot and chill while stargazing. I am now required to find an alternative way, if we continue to do this, that puts us off the ground now due to a snake spotting that caused my wife lost her s**t (understandably).

I understand that the roof will not handle the weight of us, let alone one of us, so I was thinking of installing a hitch on the front and making a foldable platform of some kind that all the weight will be supported by the rear and front receiver. Has anyone done something like this, or are there other suggestions that you may have?
