Don’t get me wrong here – the Gobi Roof Rack is an amazing piece of kit. It is well designed, solid and looks great. But under heavy loads, it does vibrate a bit, and in my case, occasionally bumps the hard top.
Gobi has an answer for that, and they are “upper isolators”. These are simple tube clamps that fit on the support bars near the top of the hard top. Contact pads are then positioned onto the hard top, and you tighten the isolators against them.
A simple enough fix to keep those heavy lots from creating any movement of the rack into the hard top. I’ll be certain to post a complete update once I’ve put the Jeep through its paces on some trails this season.
