FJ CRuiser Style Roof Rack

I've been considering adding on to my surco rack for a while. D-commander's light bar thread got me rethinking my plan again.
Trying to think about what I want out of a roof rack. It's basically a place to carry lumber, a ladder, or other long items. When I had my Surco on my WK I never used it to put small items in. I used my Yakima bars more than my rack. I did like my lights on the rack,so....
I was looking at the new fjcruiser stock racks and also cough...cough the Xterra stock racks. I like the look and functionality of these racks. I wonder if I could buy the feet or something similiar. Run a loop of tube around the contours of the roof line. Maybe like the GOBI stealth rack.
Downsize is I would have to pay someone to do this.

Here's some ideas.
Fj stock for around$325-could cut and modify- unsure what the difference in dimensions are. Obviously our trucks are bigger.

I like how this polaris Ranger rack looks also
I also like the Voyager LR3 and Defender racks
