thinking about switching to another roof rack...thoughts?
So I have the Gobi Stealth and like it fine enough, but with it I feel basically stuck with the hardtop on as it is quite a production to swap tops. Obviously I cant hoist the hard top off in my garage because of the Gobi rack tilting up. I have used my Gobi primarily for our roof top tent.
But lately I am thinking about going with the MBRP rack. I don't really mind drilling into the hard top. It could always be patched and at least it is not drilling into the body with which I would have a problem. Because I use the hard top anyway for going camping (as unzipping the back window to keep getting things becomes a pain in the ass...kid stuff) i find it easier to just mount the hard top. Then at least I could use the soft top in the summer.
With the MBRP rack, I could simply take the soft top off, and lower the hardtop with the MBRP rack already attached, onto my jeep. Then in the winter, when the hard top is on, I could use the rack for skis and snowboards.
I could also mount the front extension or simply add a single yakima bar and a cargo cage to extra storage when we go camping.
I'm welcome to any thoughts on this.
