Garvin Wilderness Expedition Rack

Looking for a roof rack for my 10 JK unlimited. Has anyone tried this product? How easy is it really to tilt back and operate the soft top?

Got one for my tj , its easy enough to flip back but for jku its longer . I believe it even says on the garvin site its a two person job . As for actually doing it I have to remove 4 bolts to flip it back (on tj)

That being said its and amazing rack . Extremely solid I can jump on it and it won't move

I was looking at that rack because it has a nice flat large basket. Problem is you have to drill your tub. The body on the jk is thinner than the TJ so I was not cool with that.

I settled on gobi because it gets the best reviews, works with my rear bumper,lowest profile, no drilling tub and they will customize if you ask. I specifically am having the crossbars removed to make it one big flat basket like the garvin.
