    This looks really cool!

    Started to ask a question about using my RACOR lift but deleted it. Even if it could be lifted out through the top I'd have to have 20' ceilings haha

    Still, I love the capabilities in this rack. Might have to re-think my approach to getting the hard-top off. No more RACOR lift if I add the rack :facepalm:

    Well first it starts with someone saying... "I've got a great idea, hold my beer!"... But seriously, Chuck Norris stopped by to give us a hand. ;)

    Just so nobody gets any bright ideas, we do not advocate driving with snowmobiles on top of Jeeps! Or Sliding Roof Racks... :)

    Looks awesome!

    Question:

    The rack can slide in either direction correct, but once installed that slide is only to one particular user chosen side, right?

    Things I'd like to see:
    • Specs for what's a safe load on the rack fully closed: be it permanently so or with the sliders.
    • Same for when it's fully opened/cantilevered--for the sliders version that is.
    • Vertical supports as accessories. This might give us the best of both worlds: the ability to ride with the rack fully loaded with gear, and slide it out of the way to open the top, or sit on top of it like with the original JK version of your rack which slid to the rear, or to use the fully loaded rack it at the same time as an awning.

      If you go this route, please consider offering some form of telescoping poles, maybe with holes in them and a pin to let us adjust the height. We Wrangler owners run different size tires and sometimes lifts as you must know. I'd be great if they could attach to the rack when stored, and maybe have the ability to attach wheels to the poles at ground point when sliding the rack out on paved surfaces.
    • Recommendations of the best grease to use to periodically lubricate the sliders.
    • Prices after you feel comfortable knowing your own costs.
    • Pre-orders, ideally at some form of discount.
    • The ability to lock it closed.

    One more request. Maybe you are including these with the new rack but took them off to show how a top can come on/off without removing the rack.

    But I would like what's circle in the picture in your old rack that slid to the back, on the new rack (at least I think I would), ideally removable so the tops can install/come off from the rear as you showed in your just released video:

    wishlist.jpg I ask this because around a minute into the video, as you close the empty rack it *appears* to shimmy a tad. Yes, I was watching a large version, in slow mo and high resolution. Maybe it's nothing. Maybe it's me.



    Or...maybe that was the rig, and if so, my apologies. But if it was the rack, I imagine such a structural member could help were the rack, sliders or not, fully loaded.

    Please don't lose context from my request. I think you guys are awesome. What I saw may have been nothing.

    Yeah, I was expecting the rack to tilt into a ramp to get the snowmobile (or motorcycle, bikes, etc.) up there. Sigh.

    Amazing idea, but the price would probably be insane.

    How many strippers can I fit on top of this thing? Does 670,000 cd of LED light burn stripper skin? Is it glitter tolerant? So many questions...

    If you look close there are removable rear gussets so you can get the hard top out. They had already been removed at that time. There can be a little shake but the jeep also shakes slightly under the latching action depending on how hard you slam it..

    I think vertical supports would be a fantastic idea.
