Hello Everyone,

After 18 Weeks of waiting the GOBI Stealth rack finally arrived. I was missing 4 bolts/washers/nuts which I will be reporting back to GOBI, other than that the install was very smooth and I am really happy with the fitment and quality of the rack!

Pics for your enjoyment!

There is a very slight whistle at highway speed. It doesn't really bother me, but I'm going to try a few minor tweaks to see if I can't get rid of it.

Thanks,
I can deal with a light whistle as long as it isn't a train horn at 60 :)

The rig looks great btw!

Rubicon JLU. It's a Jeep.
What are you using to hold the Hi-Lift on there?
(this rack is the likeliest contender for my purchase)

is there any interference with the Sat radio ?

The light bar connection seems more complicated than necessary where it meets the cowl. Could you pls comment on that connection point?

I used the lockable hi lift jack mounts that GOBI sells.

I haven't noticed any satellite radio interference but I don't use it all that often either.

The mounting near the cowl isn't complicated, there is simply brackets under the cowl for reinforcement and to provide drill-free mounting.

Are you planning on a lift? Cause it looks like the second you load gear on that thing you’re gonna be sitting on your rear fenders.

Beautiful rig though.

Yep, got the Mopar lift sitting in the crate in the garage waiting for a spare weekend!

Looks great. Does it require some drilling during installation?
