    Nothing is good on ice besides maybe a studded tire. Just a little info for you to keep in the back of your mind. You're supposed to cycle 4wd and drive in 4wd 15 miles per month. I usually just wait for a rainy day and drive to or from work in 4wd and good to go.

    Was your rear end going sideways in 2wd or 4wd or both?

    Well that's what 4wd is for. Figure you have a 5000lb rear wheel drive vehicle, add in an icy incline, and that's what happens with non-snow tires.

    Wow. That looks quite amazing - it might be the only picture I need to help make a decision. I removed the old Baja rack and plan to sell that this spring to go toward a new (maybe Gobi?) rack. Is the top of the ladder attached with a swing arm of the sorts for opening/closing the rear cargo area? How was the install? Did you use any sort of RTV or other sealant?

    Not 100% a truly snow tire, however, the Falken Wildpeak A/T3W has the 3PMSF symbol, which makes it better than the stock tires in snow/ice conditions, and probably better than all all-season non AT tires.

    Crossed the Bear yesterday. Probably a foot of snow there today. This week's storm is going to close most of the roads until Spring.

    I basically followed the instructions from a youtube channel. I'll leave the link below. Took me about 10 hours to install because I'm a perfectionist. 7 hours for the rack and the wind deflector. 3 hours for the gas shocks and ladder. Only thing gobi missed was the last 2 screws didn't come with an aluminum plate for the top ladder mount underneath the door. Strange it didn't come with instructions either so I had a piece of metal laying around and placed it there before tightening the last screws down.

    Did you do anything for water sealant around the bolt holes?

    I saw that in the vid. Just wondering if you did the same or went with something different.

    I don't like the idea of silicone hardening up and cracking over time.......and potentially being an intrusion point for water.

    I have a Gobi rack on the way and have decided to go with Butyl tape around the bolt holes thanks to @mynameistory. He has a good thread on it when he installed his Ecotechne rack.

    I haven't heard of anyone using Butyl tape in conjunction with Gobi's rack mounting plates however.

    +1 for butyl tape- that stuff has allowed me to fiddle and fuss with my rack and sharkfin deletion designs, once in a rush while sprinkles were starting, and all I had to do was mash it down... done! No water getting in, even when our temps were cold and damp at night, with highs in the low 90s during the day, over several days.
    It's sticky and gets gross, but it works and cleans off of hands easily with alcohol, and the vehicle with Stoner's Tar and Sap Remover (or isopropyl, but Stoner's is more gentle). I keep mine in the fridge, it's a huge roll that I've barely used a foot of, if that, for a LOT of fiddling on the rack mounts/holes especially.

    Does Gobi have any recommendations for sealant included with their install instructions?

    Not sure exactly. I don't have it yet and don't have the instructions in front of me. Maybe I can download them on their site.

    But the gasket/mounting bracket install starts at the 11:00 mark in this video. It looks like some butyl tape around the bolt holes would be beneficial.

    I'd go with what Gobi recommends, and I would be very careful to avoid any permanent sealants like the video suggests. As helpful as a video is, that guy doesn't work for Gobi.
