Cargo placed high on the roof raises the vehicle's center of gravity, making it top-heavy and hence more prone to rollovers. This is especially true if the cargo's heavier components are at the top. Place the heaviest elements of the cargo underneath the lightest parts to reduce the center of gravity.
