The XM antenna needs to be relocated if you use the long Pioneer rack. You’ll get signal drop outs quite often with that hunk of metal right above the antenna. This bracket makes it easy: https://maximus-3.com/home/maximus-3-jl-satellite-antenna-relocation-bracket

I haven’t had any issues with the GPS antenna, but I don’t use it very often.

No wonder!!!!! I've been having bad signals ever since I installed mine. Is it easy to relocate?
Thanks for the advise!

I never followed up on this, but I can confirm that this bracket fixed everything :)

Does anyone have an ARB awning mounted with the rhino roof rack pioneer platform? Interested to see how/where the awning brackets where installed. Thanks.
I've had the ARB awning mounted on the pioneer platform since the beginning of summer 2020. I originally used the AWB quick release awning brackets since I was planning on removing it while parked overnight(s) in Colorado on vacation. I ended up never touching the brackets, so I replaced them with the ARB universal awning brackets, and they've been up ever since. We've gone all over the place and those brackets haven't moved at all. Here is a quick pic of the way I have them mounted. Check out my previous post to see it mounted from afar.

Thanks! I will use the ARB universal awning brackets as well. Did you need any special hardware to attach them or just nut/washer/bolt?

I just used one M8 bolt/washer/channel nut that I had for each one. Keep in mind mine is the 2000x2500 awning. I think it's the perfect length for the Jeep/pioneer platform, but if you get the 2500x2500, ARB recommends using 3 brackets. I also bought extra stainless M8 bolts and channel nuts from Amazon, and they come in handy when adding stuff like this!

Thanks to the great guys at Rebel Off Road, I got my Rhino Rack backbone installed! It looks incredible and I can’t wait to load it up and go camping!

Good afternoon Sir, do you by any chance have the total height from the ground to the top of the platform? Long story short, I am having my jeep (same as yours) delivery overseas due to military commitments and the apartment complex I am staying overseas, the underground garage seems to be not high enough!! Hopefully my Rubicon can fit.

I did this some time ago before I added the 1.5" lift and 35" tires. If I recall correctly the height before the lift was 76", but not totally sure. I limited myself to the current lift and tires and it fits in my garage by about an inch. I do have issues if I need to park in underground garages in LA, but at home I am ok.
