Ok, Sir. I know you are correct. It just seems like a case of splitting hairs to me- guess you caught me on a bad day. I have appreciated your feedback in other posts as well. So, my bad. White flag?

Absolutely! Too bad you don't live closer or I would buy you a beer and we could talk about the cool mods you did, the gravitational effects of rotating vs. static mass, women and life in general. Just reel me in if I go too far out on the proverbial ledge!

I must laugh at this. You see people with strong options (whether right or wrong) on youtube and similar sites, starting literally a World War. Because of different interpretation's and politics involved.

The more I experience today's society the more i want to get in my 4runner and get off the beaten track!

I thought your response was detailed and well thought through, so thank you.

That's going to be one sweet set up! Please post pic's once installed. How are you going to wire it through? I thinking of getting a buddy whose a dealer to do mine, as well its a lot harder than the FJ. (previous truck) Any thoughts or ideas please share.

According to the trailduty.com website, Gobi's "Stealth version provides a flat surface structure front to rear along roof rack’s highest surface level."

Yet in all the photos I've seen, the top bar at the front end sticks up higher than the rest of the structure. In fact I can't see any difference between the Stealth and Ranger versions. What's the story??

I would really like to have a rack that is level from front to rear, so that any items longer than the rack itself can be strapped down without sticking up at the front.

You can order yours that way from Gobi. The Ranger is taller.

So the only way to get one that's level front to rear, is to special order it? I didn't see anything about that on Gobi's site.

It's called "no rise". Another poster had a thread about it.

They are all made to order, from what I understand. People make adjustments and have specific figurations done all the time.
