With the exception of the Mopar rack, has anyone heard from the other rack manufacturers? I really hope Gobi comes out with a rack soon (by the New Year, hopefully).

I second this. I'm planning to purchase a 2 door JL Rubicon by May 2018 and am hoping a gobi rack will be my first mod after a lift and new wheels/ tires.

Anybody know if the rear section of the hard top could be hoisted from the rack? Sure would make a hoist setup super easy.

I wonder about that, because based on the photos, the drip rails are the same material as the hard top? Not like old school metal drip rails on a metal top. I would have some concern about putting too much stress on those rails.

Talked to Rhino Rack at Outdoor Retailer in Denver on Sat, they are scanning a JL this week, so keep your eyes peeled for new stuff from them in the future.

Yes, it can, at least this one...

Watch the vids, they specifically state it is a great way to lift the hard top off the Jeep. Just waiting for a JL version.
