Its only a couple of dual cabs that do offer the same, and as mentioned, do not come close to the gc, even optioned out.
If you converted a GC you'd lose that towing ability. As mentioned before, the GC is a unibody vehicle, and so chopping off that part of the roof would eliminate a lot of its body stiffness and thus towing capacity.
Have you considered just getting a small trailer for stuff you would use the bed for?
