Yes installed myself took about 6 hours because I took my time and did 95% with no help. I put anti seize on every bolt which takes some time to not make a mess. I have some add on ideas I'm working on but happy with it overall. Suggestion being all tubing to be a tad thicker walled due to standing on top to load gear, i weigh about 150 lbs and top tube of rack being able to accept Yakima accessories not just top crossbars

Search for thread on Thule rain gutter racks and Jeep hard top. Not a good combination. I'd like to do it too, but after researching, looks like anything you actually mount on the rack would exceed design specs for the Jeep hardtop.

I've got a JKR that I'd like to mount a roof box, skis, bikes, kayak, etc., but about the only things that wouldn't exceed design limits are a couple pairs of skis or so.

Will probably go with the Gobi, but I'd like to be able to easily remove it and am concerned about wind noise and mpg drop if mounted full time. Plus garage door opening clearance.

I drove my '98 Durango to the top of Mt. Washington, using Yakima rack system, with a 16' canoe and roof box on top, and 4 mtn. bikes on the back, but the Durango had nice, indented rack mounting channels on the top.

As a side note, I have not put the rack on yet, I need to get it from my father-in-law's house. Looking at pictures, I like it.

I stopped at $50 on that one a pita to get there but was doable and I wished I bid higher. Congrats on that deal.

I have done alot of Rack research and made the decision to get an MBRP rack for my 2 door 2011 JK Rubicon only to find out it wont fit. I too Contacted the Manufacturer which offered no help or encouragement.

Couple of Questions for you Forum Users
1. I have heard that a 2010 top will fit on my 2011, so now I am wondering if anyone would like to have a 2011 TOP with the bigger Window for a Straight across Trade.
2. Has anyone had any success in mounting the MBRP Rack on THIER 2011 2-door

After my brake upgrade, I'll be putting on a rack too. The AEV one looks interesting as well. It is probably the one for me. I like the Gobi too but I think it is quite a bit more.
