Anyone running the wild boar rack?

Was wondering if anyone was running the wild boar rack and could offer any feedback? It looks pretty solid and easy to go up and down with the top without having to take the rack apart. I was wondering if it's that easy to do? AND does it whistle or cause any issues if you're running with the top down. Love to see some photos with your top down so I could see the rack. (he, he)

I looked at roof racks at one point, and narrowed it down to these two (I wasn't concerned about drilling into the Jeep if necessary...that's what silicone sealant is for ):

WILD BOAR PRODUCTS: Cargo Rack Systems for your Jeep Wrangler

Garvin Wilderness Racks

Gobi was another one that I really liked...Alec at EAD Offroad here on the forum can give you info about their setup.


Some other WF links:

Roof Rack Suggestions for 4-door Unlimited?

Cargo Rack

Some links to threads from JKF:

This one deals mainly with the Gobi racks, but there's some info on the WB, as well: Choosing a cargo rack - Gobi or Wild Boar

Best Roof Rack

If you read all this, you'll have a degree in JK Rackology. Not a master's or a PhD, but a solid foundation of roof rack knowledge.

I have a Wild Boar on a 2dr 2008, if I could change one thing I would like it to open to the side (JKUs open to the side) instead of to the back. Other than that it has served me well.
