The Darby Extend-A-Truck Kayak Carrier w/ Hitch Mounted Load Extender and Single-Bar Roof Rack # DTA944-968-924 may work for your 2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, but it will depend on a few measurements; also keep in mind a hard top will have a 100 lb weight limit including the roof rack.

The first thing to take a look at is clearance from your Jeep's spare tire; the carrier extends 9-1/2" from the center of the hitch pin hole to the upright bar, so your spare tire needs to measure less than that distance.

Then, you need to measure from the top of your Jeep's hitch receiver to the top of the roof, which will need to be between 53-3/8" and 60-3/8" in order to work.

The load bar measures 48" wide so fitting two kayaks depends on their width, though you would need to add a foam block like the Malone Foam Block # MPG172 for the second kayak. You will also need Pin and Clip # PC3 to secure the carrier, as well as tie-downs # TH521 and # TH855XT
