Is there a version of this that will allow a sunrider to open? Love this style, want a shorter rack.
Nope, I was hoping to add a sunrider, but Rhino Rack says this is the only platform size available.

Maximus-3 has the smaller 2 door rack available.
I would think if you really wanted that same rack but with the Rhino Rack Backbone that you could buy them piecewise. The backbone is sold separately but comes with 3 support pads, I assume the difference would be that you wouldn't install the frontmost supports?

I got mine done at Rebel as well, thrilled with it, no roof top tent on mine just some Maxtrax, shovel, rotopax, highlift? and misc other stuff. I did notice an increase in wind noise after about 75,I also noticed yours is the only other jeep I have seen with Gama Sportsbar. XG cargo bags as well,

For those of you that have the rhine rack how is it taking the freedom panels on and off? I am looking at this one but do like to take my freedom panels off as often as I can. I can't tell from the pictures but it looks like it might interfere a bit?

No clearance issues...just need to lift from the front...carefully on an angle...to remove (and reinstall).

What shovel is this and how did you mount it? Looks great!

It is a Krazy Beaver, https://krazybeavertools.com/ the mount is just the Rhino Rack Pioneer shovel mount, one issue with the mount is unless you can take the handle off the shovel it will not work. The Krazy Beaver's handle does remove with a pin so you can store things in the handle if you wish.It looks like it was designed for a straight handled shovel, the make another one that opens completely but it sticks up higher
