If your goal was to use the Darby Extend-A-Truck Kayak Carrier w/ Hitch Mounted Load Extender and Single-Bar Roof Rack # DTA944-968-924 with your 2018 Jeep Wrangler you'd only really need a rear hitch installed on your vehicle. For that we have the hitch part # E98856 which will fit and work well.

That said we are aware that the roof of Jeep Wranglers really weren't designed to carry much weight. I'd be shocked if you had the weight to carry two kayaks as our roof rack manufacturers have told use they really shouldn't carry anything on top if the rack attaches to the hardtop.

The best and safest option (not cheapest...) will be to use the hitch I mentioned and a trailer that has kayak carriers installed on it so that you don't have to worry about damaging your new vehicle and can travel safely with the peace of mind that everything will make it to your destination in one piece.

For that we have the Malone MicroSport Trailer part # MPG461G2 which comes with two very easy to load J-style kayak carriers. I attached a review video for this trailer for you to check out as well.
