    I got a partial order in...

    2 issues so far. I am missing one of the inserts on the cross beams.

    And my set of 6 feet (package of 4 and 2) didn’t come with one key for all 6 feet :/

    I will reach out to Rhino Rack/Northridge to see what they can do.

    I am having fun assembling the rack. I wish the screws were labeled better.

    Gobi Rack I ordered on Feb 6, 2019 is supposed to be delivered today July 17, 2019. Finally. Crazy wait times, but I guess the first round of people had to wait even longer so I'll just be happy it's finally coming lol.

    I hear you. This work thing getting in the way is no good. That’s exactly the reason I can’t install mine right now.

    Bruh, tell me how you did this! I ordered on Feb 11th. Did you know when they began manufacturing? I asked for an update at the 5 month mark. Havent heard back.

    I installed mine yesterday evening. Mounting the backbone system took me 4h instead of the advertised 2h, but I wanted to make it correct and did it carefully.
    When I tried to install the platform onto the backbone system it doesn't fit =(
    I contacted NorthRidge4x4 were I ordered the whole backbone + platform set for the Jeep JL 4dr.

    Does anyone have the same issue? I really double and triple checked my assembly but couldn't found an issue. It seems like the crossbars of the platform don't fit to the position of the backbone system.

    On the Rhino rack pioneer platform page the instruction state that you have to drill holes for 2 of the support bars in slightly different positions. The included instructions with the pioneer rack also ask you to refer to specific vehicle model on their website for install instructions.

    This is correct...you need to go to the rhino rack website for specific fitting instructions for our JL

    Thanks you guys, I totally missed that. Thought that the platform would fit right away onto the backbone system. NorthRidge also confirmed that the platform needs custom fitting

    What's the height of the rack from the top of the hardtop to the top of the rack?
