My gobi rack does not mount to the frame
It’s to the body front and rear
Rear? A bracket where bumper attaches, or to the body?

Looking at the online install instructions the Gobi does not attach to the frame.
Their newer rack has been revised to a body mount on the pinch seam. Not sure if they still retain the old style at all.

Fair point, in under 10 minutes?
Probably around that time with some practice and a small battery impact. We will be testing soon so we can let you know!

Spring 2019 currently. We are gearing up to attack it full force this month, since the JL tire carrier and rock sliders are finished up.
Looking forward to seeing this rack.
