Gobi Roof Rack questions

Hey guys, I am planning on getting a gobi roof rack, but I have a few questions for those of you who may have one or seen them in use.
1. Can I run a snorkel with either the Gobi Stealth or ranger racks? Preferably the AEV snorkel?
2. Can I still mount lights to windshield brackets?
3. With the ranger rack and optional lights, can I still tie down a kayak or two? Or will they come in contact with the lights? In which case I should run the Stealth rack.

Thanks!

1. Yes, I have the AEV snorkel with the stealth currently. Fits perfectly.
2. Yes, but I'm not sure whose brackets you need. I've seen pictures on the board somewhere. I'd ask David at Alphaexpedition.com
3. Where are you concerned about contact? On both the ranger and stealth, the lights sit between two parallel horizontal bars.

yes, you can run the AEV snorkel

yes, you can run winshield mounted lights. How? Just let me know what you plan to mount there and I can have the GOBi mounts setup with welded on brackets for your lights. I have done a few custom GOBi racks for customers.

If you plan to run a round light up front/ top, you can do so on either the stealth OR the Ranger. You just want them to sit a touch lower than the upper bar. On a stealth, that's just an extra bracket. btw, if you use Yakima mounts for your Kayak, you can utilize them on the GOBI as the corssbars are the same diameter.

Let me know if I can be of any help. I am up at GOBI at least a couple times a week.
