Roof Rack and Light Bar Suggestions?

Hi everyone, I am interested in buying a roof rack for my 5th gen 4runner but I'm unsure about which brand or model would be best. I have been looking at Baja and Gobi, but I was wondering what other people thought about this. I will want to put a light bar on the front as well but also unsure which would go best with each rack. I've been looking at Rigid Industries and Swamp Donkey Lighting for those but still unsure. Honestly, I'd prefer to spend the extra dollars to buy a quality roof rack and light bar.

What I want in the rack:
-Cover the full top but still have space for the sun roof to have a unobstructed view
-Place a light bar on the front and maybe two small ones on the back.
-Foreseeing a 3 inch lift with possibly 285/70/17 terra grapplers

Any and all advice is welcomed!

Thanks!

I have the full length Gobi with removable "sunroof" panel mounted with a 40-inch curved LED light bar and 2 additional LEDs up front; you can check out my build thread for more details.

Is the Gobi rack noisy? can you hear wind noise when you are driving down the road?

I just installed the same Gobi rack, and yes... it does generate wind noise. I don't have a light bar installed yet - I've read here from others that it will make a difference in reducing the noise... Looking at buying an extreme led 5d 40"

I was looking at the Victory 4x4 full length rack. I like it because you don't have to drill into the roof even at full length. I plan on just removing a crossbar or two to allow full sun roof usability. For $25 they will ship with a 40" light bar cutout.

Honestly I wish I could stick with factory but I want to mount and ARB awning and that appears to be near impossible with factory.
