GOBI Roof Rack Accessories - whatchya got?

Hoping to get a solid single-source thread on roof rack accessories, best ideas, best practices, etc. I searched a bit but no luck so here we are. Doesnt have to be GOBI specific though Im sure mounting hardware wont be universal.

Sure lights, but which ones and why? Wiring tips?

Shovel / hi-lift mounts? Of course, but for less than the classic $175?

Best full-coverage awnings for a full rack?

Ladder mounts - flag carriers? Radio antennas?

I know there are a lot of folks who - through trial and error - have some solid wisdom to share.

I use the K9 MaxTrax Mount, which is not made for a Gobi rack, but it works incredibly great...
saw someone else on the forum do it and went for it.

Did the hardware that came with it work or did you have to buy anything different to mount it?

The included hardware worked perfectly but I did buy some large washers to put under the rack.

I use these too. They work great!

I also have used a couple flatter cases that I bolted down. My rack came with the gobi tie down ratchets which work really well. I like them a lot.

Little bump.

I’m looking for flag pole ladder mount ideas. Zip ties seem a little beneath the OCD/OEM requirements I have...

For an actual flag or like a desert whip?

Found the Gobi Shovel/Axe and Hi lift brackets locally on Offerup. Still a few weeks away from actually getting my rack delivered

I plan on the getting Rotopax ladder mount brackets and bolt on steps.

Any recommendations for a hard shell RTT?

ARB awning mounts. That's likely the only attachments I'll be using. Perhaps Maxtrax mounts. Tie down system @ $190 seems a bit to steep for me.

For Traction Board mounts, I use and love the Yakima Traction Board Mounts. They are held down by straps that can be accessed quickly cinch down tightly. Love them.


For Awning mounts I use GZilla Designs. These things are stout and look great on the Gobi. Highly recommend these. They make mounts for a variety of items.
