    Thinking about pulling the trigger on a Gobi Stealth Rack. Anything I should know about them before I do?

    Installed Rago brackets and 4" cube ditch lights. Weather tech mats. Cargo net. Cargo mat. Ordered Gobi rack with ladder.
    Yes, IT'S FANTASTIC. You will not be disappointed with the quality and engineering with this Rack. We also installed the Ax and Shovel Mount on the passenger side. It does take about 6-8 weeks of waiting for delivery and is complete with step-by-step instructions. Very easy to install but it will take a buddy to help you lift the rack up over the top. We also installed the ladder which looks really cool going down the street. This is my Sons car who is a Senior in High School and we are hoping this one should last him well after College.

    Lol. I know right? He's a really good kid with a great heart. I'm not home very much so I guess I'm trying to make up for it. It's all good.

    A question for all the Gobi owners. I have the standard OEM rails and crossbars with a Yakima extended rack. I would like to upgrade to the Gobi and would like to know since it becomes a semi-permanent installation: 1) Does it create much wind noise? 2) Is the finish holding up (assuming it's powder coated), Would you change anything ?. Any other comments ?

    Yes, wind noise is noticeable, but the stereo turned up fixes it. Yes, it's powder coated and I believe that Gobi is the only company that conducts a water test on every rack ensuring the welds are solid. Powder coat is holding up well for the year we have had it. It's not the cheapest rack out there but probably one of the best. We liked front runner too. It was a tough choice.
