    Installed the new Gobi rack

    Well, installed a Gobi rack on my JKU looks great, very solid! Can't wait to try it out.

    Awesome! How was the fitment? Did you have to make any modifications to make it fit?

    No modifications needed. We did have to modify the a-pillar light mounts. Everything else bolted right together. It's a very well designed rack for sure.

    Awesome. When you buy something that large and it is shipped, one never knows how the accuracy of everything is.

    Curious. Is it even possible to put your top down now?

    Yes, there are two quick release brackets on the front, then the rack tilts back

    How is wind noise? I have Kargo Master's Congo Cage and Safari basket on my JKUR. After just 50 miles I had to get the wind deflector as well because it was waaaay too noisy even with a hardtop.

    There is wind noise, but it's not crazy. I actually just put a couple pool noodles in the two cross members that touch the top. I don't mind it, I can still talk on the Bluetooth at 70mph. So it's bearable. I would expect there to be zero noise with a hard top.

    That's nice. I'm considering ditching my light bar because of the noise. Drives me nuts. I got the whistling to stop, but it still loud. Love the racks and if I did a overland build it would be my first mod.
