I’m running through the EXACT same issue, was hoping there would be some replies but I’ll check back later. I actually just ordered the large one today but am seriously thinking about canceling and switching. I like the look of the short better I think, and I doubt I’ll ever need the full size, aside for a RTT down the line.
RIGHT!?!
If I understand the Maximus-3 installation correctly (please correct me if I’m wrong) the brackets, mounting locations and drill holes are identical on the JLU regardless if it is holding a Long or Short Pioneer platform.

So in all of my (limited) wisdom here, I could order the short platform and if it does not suit my needs, I could then do a one-for-one swap with the Long platform using the existing Maximus-3 mount already installed.

Anyone out there experienced with this platform swap?

I have just received my maximus Roof Rack. Do I have to disconnect the battery to move the satellite antenna?

I agree with your insight. As a first time Wrangler owner I’m still learning and feeling it out with each new experience and upgrade.

With your long platform do you regularly remove the Freedom panels? If so, do typically carry them with you or leave them at home?

I’m finding it a bit of an annoyance to use up the limited internal space when we remove them, though I’m certain I can adapt and overcome.
I don‘t remove them often, to be honest. But last time I did, I put them in their bag and tossed them in the back seat. Supposedly they’ll fit in the rear, but I lost space back there when I added my Slipstream.

Correct, the mounting bracket locations are the same Long v Short. You could easily swap rack sizes without modifying anything.
