Roof rack option
 
I have a jk unlimited and more room. I am looking at the garvin wilderness adventure rack and the Gobi. I already have a Thule Moab basket so that is why I am considering the garvin rack. All said and done, the garvin is about 1,000 less. What do you think?L

Gobi Steath, hands down. Spent 2 months researching before choosing it, (not settling) absolutely no remorse whatsoever on it. Compatible with thule and Yakima mounts. If you go this way, get the wind faring. It doesn't touch body, it mounts to the rack and as they told me at Gobi, they designed it to make sure to "push" the wind over the open top rather than having the wind flow down over the windshield. and - as evidence today, he is right, no noise (more than usual) or downwind with the top down doing 80

The gobi looks great. How is it to take off and put back on? One person? Quick release?

quick release to tip it back, 1 person. getting it completely off for storage is definitely a 2 person job

did you mount lights to the front of your stealth rack?

not yet - may be a summer thing. It is a DD down into Denver, so lights right now would be looks only. Can't justify the spend (yet)
