So, you can get quick disconnects for the Kongo? Which makes it easier to remove? I don't care if brackets are left on the Jeep body, just want to be able to remove the bars and the basket.
Is it easy to remove the Gobi bars and basket?
No quick disconnects that I know of, but the removal of four bolts and one could remove the whole Congo cage at once. It'd be very heavy and awkward to move without hitting the jeep.
There are two bolts at the front, one on each a-pillar that hold the front uprights to the brackets, and then two more at the rear that hold the rear uprights to their respective brackets. So four bolts, and it's free.
I'm quite sure the first time you do it it'll also be the last time, lol.
The gobi would involve the removal of 6 bolts, and the front lightbar/uprights would stay on the jeep. Four bolts hold the rack portion to the light bar, 2 per side. 2 bolts hold the rear uprights to their respective brackets at the rear, similar to the Congo cage.
Again, having removed my rack once when installing my snorkel, I'm quite sure the first time you do it will also be the last, lol.
Left on all the time though, I much prefer the gobi as in my experience it has had a smaller impact on my mpg than the Congo cage and it's significantly quieter.
