Maximus 3 roof rack experiences?

I've seen a few old threads where folks mentioned liking the rhino rack/maximus-3 roof rack.
I like the form factor, functionality, and price. Anyone have any advice or experience with these? It looks like only the long (6') rack is in stock. Will this make it hard to get the panels off? Has anyone had a positive experience removing the top with the m3 rack installed? Any regrets, etc.?

Good questions I've been looking at them as well. Have not seen much info about them on the forums

Maximus-3 doesn't frequent the boards as much as they used to. I really like the look of their Roof Rack, however I wonder how it affects users who already have their hardtop insulated. I don't want to have to remove or cut my Hothead Headliners.

I'm wondering about leaks and removability. Everyone seems to love the Rhino Rack Pioneer platform that the AEV, Maximus and Backbone use. But I know AEV rack customers complain about how hard it is to take the rack off.

I like how this one only requires drilling holes for 4 feet.
The hole are on the roof and out of site, unlike the Backbone system.
And the entire rack only adds 2" of height to the Jeep.

I'm wondering if you could remove the rack feet, and easily replace them with with a flat weather sealed piece. (I'm mostly interested in a rack for Roof top tent usage. So I want it to be easily removable).

Has anyone seen install instructions?

Anyone else have more updated experience with these? Also curious how much room there is between the bottom of the rack and the roof. Wondering if I could slot a Maxtrax under there.
