It bolts to the frame on the same bolts that hold the bumper. As long as your replacement bumper doesn't extend above the stock bumper then it should play nice.

For the price, the congo cage is a good option. Some of the others are pricy. The congo cage is very capable for its price range.

oncewas While I like the Gobi a lot it is very expensive but I was hoping to get some information on the Smittybilt and Body Armor since both of them connect to the frame at the rear bumper.

The MBRP is nice but once again I'm drilling into the vehicle which I want to avoid.

If it does come out in that time frame I hope to get one.
thanks, i was close on the name lol. op should still check ou t jim box pics. i would think it is worth waiting for.

philxor Expensive but you can't go wrong with the Gobi.

oncewas While I like both of the Garvin and the Wild Boar system I have a phobia about drilling holes in a brand new vehicle. That wa ahy the Smittybilt and Body Armor both looked good they attach to the frame in the rear.

kbwwolf I don't have a roof rack, but have looked at a few as a possible future mod. Narrowed it down to either the Garvin or the Wild Boar.

oncewas i2 from what I've seen some racks have gasket type material to use others don't. I would. While the Lange rack would be nice for carruing canoes I don't think it would work for me. I need to carry stuff, I'll probably need a basket or at least a platform and net.

Once we are looking at racks

Glad to see a thread started on RACKS.
I am leaning towards the LANGE rack to carry my canoe and would love to get some feedback on it.
Also I would like to know about mounting on the windshield screws and if normally a gasket is used between the metal and metal?
