Finally received my Gobi rack. Still waiting on my ikamper xcover rooftop tent.
How much taller is your Jeep now with the rack? I want to get a gobi rack but it needs to fit in the garage. How do you like it so far? It looks great!

Hi,
is it possible to move the pioneer platform a bit, i.e. about 4-8 inches, further to the rear (relative to the feet) or do the 3 backbone feet on every side only allow for one specific position? I am obviously asking this to allow more clearance when removing the freedom panels, despite having a bit more platform overhang at the rear
Thx, Klaus

You could drill the holes in different spots to mount it how ever you want.

Looks great on the 2 door. Do you know how much height it added on the stock Rubicon? It needs to fit in my garage.
Any wind noise? I’m about to buy this for my 4 door.

Our roof rack system adds about 2.5 inches of height to the vehicle.

Wind noise is very minimal with how low profile it is. That being said it IS a roof rack and, no matter what, will create wind drag and noise. There is no howling or whistling noises though with our rack system!

Feel free to reach out directly if you have any more questions!

Great to see it on a soft top. That’s what I’ll mainly be running and was wondering about the looks. How much height does it add btw? Have you taken the top down with it on?

The rack adds 2.25" and the rail adds another 2.5". There is a bit of wind noise but only above 50. After a week I dont noticed it and the wife hasnt commented so it can't be bad at all!

Awesome, let us know how it turns out! Couldn't have picked a better place to get it done at either, the guys at Rubitrux are incredible to work with.
