Which rack for RTT?

I am looking at getting a RTT and need a rack to put it on my JKU. I prefer one of the external racks that don't require any cutting or drilling of the sheet metal or hard top. What do you guys recommend?

Thanks.

Wait 6-8 months and get a Gobi lol. They told me last week they estimate 6-8 months to get a rack from them. She said more closer to the 8 month mark, that is not unusual for this company. Once order is placed you will never hear from them, no updates, ignored calls and emails, until it has shipped. Apparently this is how the company operates. For this reason I am going with a Barricade Rooftop Rack frame mounted. No drilling or cutting on the body, just bolt to the frame.

I placed an order with Gobi on October 31. I hope to have it by March. I was told 12-16 weeks when I ordered it. Maybe with the Black Friday sale, they had to push the lead times out.

I ordered a Tepui Autana 3 for it on Black Friday. It’s sitting in my garage just waiting for the roof rack.

I have a Gobi Stealth rack and love it BUT it is not very RTT friendly, depending on the tent style. With my FSR, I have to use Thule bars on top of the Gobi to mount it and have enough room to re-hook the cover when I breakdown camp.

I have a Front Runner rack - I don't have a RTT (I stow recovery gear, firewood, winter clothes, jerry cans up top - have an awning and hi-lift attached as well) but have friends with the same rack & they love it for tents. You need to drill through the hard top, but once mounted it is ultra solid and I've never had a leak. I debated Gobi but went this way instead. I liked the Gobi but another factor that the Front Runner has a really low profile, and I can just squeeze into 7 ft garage doors. With the Gobi, I'd be parking on the street.

Affordable Rack & Damn Sturdy -

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00YJIA1EY/ref=ox_sc_act_image_2?smid=A26MION209KAZ9&psc=1


I plan on doing a lot with this.

Here's a good review of it - I have this rack & I plan on getting a Rooftop tent very soon.


I recommend using an impact wrench & not hand tools - all i gotta say, the rack is very snug and hasnt budged at all

Koko (Hawaiian Blood) The Hawaiian meaning of 'Koko' is blood. But Koko is not about the blood that runs through our veins. Koko is the Aka (umbilical) cord that connects us to the Wao Akua (realm of the Gods), Aumakuas (ancestral spirits) and the 'Aina (land).

I went with the FrontRunner rack. It’s really sturdy and has a ton of possible configurations. I think there’s a used Gobi for sale in the parts section. I know I’ve seen it listed on Expedition.
