I have the Rugged Ridge Shepard: In no way can this rack be compared to the Gobi, Gobi is top of the line, best of the best. It just did not appeal to me visually so I went with a cheaper system and am building a basket for it.
Best deal I have found, however Jason at Krawl Offroad matched this price
11703.02 - Rugged Ridge Sherpa Roof Rack 07-14 Wranglers 4 Doors
This is what I liked best about this rack is the windshield mounting points.
Overall I like the rack, I am building a custom basket for it as I bought this with the intention of modifying it.
My basket will support a 50" light bar, two 8 gallon roto-pax fuel cans and 2 two gallon water roto-pax. Roto-pax's will be in a lockable containment and for access they will slide out to the side.
The other perk is it will support my roof top tent
Load bars on the rack are going to be moved outwards and raised 1" with the tent installed it comes in at 2" below the height of the Gobi rack with the same tent installed.
I know this might be a little beyond what you were asking about, but just offering a suggestion.
