Anyone out there have the shorter version: ARB STEEL FLAT RACK WITHOUT MESH FLOOR 53" X 49"? i believe it is ARB part number:3800180. Not many reviews on this rack in general. Looking for wind noise, and how much impact to the sunroof does the full size mesh or rails model cause versus the shorter flat rack.

thanks!

I would like to get your personal thoughts of the rack now that you have had it for awhile. Wind noise level with sunroof closed, open,cracked? Any cons? Is it worth double the price of the non mesh steel one? Right now I can get free ship at 4Wheeler Parts.
Thanks!

Itís solid. The wind noise is minimal when the sunroof is closed. When open the wind does blow inside the cabin but not too bad.

What are you putting on top?
The mesh can make mounting a RTT a little harder but not impossible.

Iíd probably rather have the steel without mesh if the savings is there.

Where do you live? If you buy the steel flat, Iíll trade you.

Thanks for the pics, I was really leaning towards this rack but not do much now. Just not quite what I thought it was. And looks like sunroof can't be tilted anymore.

I donít have a rtt....yet. I will be using it for hauling a kayak and camping gear along with recovery gear.. Iím thinking that mesh could get In the way of mounting certain thing. Itís gotta be hard to clean the roof I would think. See now Iím trying to talk myself outta of it. I live in Montana.

For those with the aluminum mesh version, would you be able to mount a cargo box to it ok without additional accessories?

Racehoss, if you still have the rack, could you help a brother out and let me know the exact height of the rack from the top of the runner?

My condo has a very low clearance and I can get in no problem with the stock roof rails but would like to be sure the flat rack will fit.

Thanks in advance!
