One is short. One is long.What's the difference between the short and long roof rack system? They are within $30 of each other in price point. I did not expect a roof rack system to cost $1200+...
It’s hard to get a photo of the front brackets because my spiderweb shade is on with the hard top. They are right over the sound bar. I don’t know exactly how the soft top works but I would think it would be ok.Looks great...You mind posting pics of the mounts?
Also if I take the hard top off do the mounts interfere with me using the soft top?
Installation guide for that KC rack is telling. The rack connects to the hardtop via rivnuts. Its basically cosmetic rack for mounting lights. There is no support from the vehicle. From a load perspective, its no different than laying someting directly on the hardtop. Yawn.
this is great. A few questions: How hard was install? Good instructions? Did you have to relocate the Satellite module?It’s hard to get a photo of the front brackets because my spiderweb shade is on with the hard top. They are right over the sound bar.

I thought the install was really straightforward with good instructions (attached). I did relocate the satellite antenna just above the driver's side sun visor immediately to the left of the freedom top latch. See photo.this is great. A few questions: How hard was install? Good instructions? Did you have to relocate the Satellite module?
