That doesn't look like it's installed correctly or is not the correct rack for the vehicle. When properly installed it should not make contact with either the hard or soft tops. What I'm seeing in that pic are the mounts for the rear ladders resting directly on the hard top which should not be the case at all. See pic below from when I had a Gobi on my Jeep.
It looks like you might have this style rack. The first question I have is do you have the rear support bar in place that allows the rack to pivot back. Hard to tell in the pictures you posted, but it doesn't look like it. If that is installed, then the likely culprit is the rack you have is designed for use with the slant back top and you're using with a full hard top. When you changed to the hard top you should have removed the bracket(s) that the ladders attached to. It's been a few years since I've had a Gobi but if memory serves me right, that bracket the ladders attach to is a separate piece to allow for adjustment due to little variances in each jeep.
Sure my rig has seen the trail, but I wheel it like a soccer mom looking for a parking spot at Nordstroms.
