I do like the gobi ladder, would fill in their name on the top though lol. I always liked the quarter panel ladders people do on the side from the bumper too but I have stock bumper.

Hey I've seen those! Does anyone still make them? And yeah I'd also remove the Gobi logo.

If anyone plans on getting a Gobi - plan on a long wait. I bought one on a whim because I have a plywood kick-back platform on my rack - paid 6 months ago (Feb 3rd) and not a peep out of them yet. Gonna call them next week. Looks like the price has increased $50 but 'free' shipping in still in effect.

Edit - you don't pay til it ships - I meant 'ordered' on Feb 3rd.

All the quarter panel ones I have seen were custom made by the owners. Mine arrived today and minus one little chip on one corner it came in good condition. However, the brackets labeled "Middle" have a good 3/8"-1/2" gap between the rack and the bracket so I need to contact them. How did your install go?

I couldn't find the silicone RTV anywhere nearby so I had to order it. Same goes for the 3/8 t20 torx socket. It will all be here Saturday I think so assuming the weather is not garbage I'll be trying to put it on then.

Are the bracket side-specific? I feel like I remember reading that in the instructions. I have to take a look at my parts again.

Not side specific. The front and back brackets are the same and then there's two for the center stamped "middle". Luckily I found some RTV Silicone at my local Ace Hardware in the automotive section. Only had to remove the end cap and the one screw holding that endcap on. Baja has already gotten back to me and wants a couple more pictures with a tape measure next to the bracket. Sounds like they will accommodate my request for all "middle" brackets which are lower in height.

I'm really glad to hear that you can't just simply remove one bolt and not the whole thing. Phew... But man I hope my brackets are not miss-made. I just want to put the thing on and enjoy/use it already... Lol
