Installed my Gobi rack today
Ordered 3/22 arrived 8/28
Only missing 4 bolts which I picked up at the hardware store
Install was solo
About 4 hours with help to put the rack on the roof
And A break to take my daughter to guitar lessons
Straight forward Install
Ran out of time to put the fairing or the ladder on will get them done tomorrow

I had debated selling this and getting an expedition trailer
But as you see eneded up installing

How does it feel? Pretty solid? It looks really good.

Would you mind posting a pic of the front “light bar hoop” and its attachment to the jeep?

Also im going to assume all the usual comments about noise and mpg will appy to this gobi same as the jk version. But could you comment on your experience with the sat radio interference if any? Thx

How is the rack different for a light bar vs multi light setup?

The two support pieces in the center of the hoop are removed allowing a lightbar. Not sure if it can take a 50"

I am having trouble with the cowling, The bottom closest to the door does not go flush with the body. Seems like the strap from the door to the bolt holds out the edge of the cowling. How did you address this? thank you for any help, this is driving me crazy.

Anyone have pics with the soft top off. I’m curious what the rack looks like in that situation.
