Jkur owner wanting a good roof rack

I have been looking for a good roof rack for my jku. I think I will go with the gobi stealth but would like to know if there's any others with the same quality and features. And cheeper wouldn't hurt lol. I like the gobi because it fits tight to windshield frame has a ladder u can add the sunroof option for more storage space and the low profile look. Thanks any info helps or if u got one for sale let me know

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.


Top off


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.

I don't want to put any holes in my top I don't like the rugged ridge one because the bars r so close together and if u mount cross bars and a basket it's kinda tall. Where's the best place to order a the the gobi rack best price I found is 1495 shipped with a free ladder and wind deflector

Best I found was 1695, 1495 sound like a deal.
