Question -- UNEEK; I weht to the (Aussie) website and "fell in love" with the Flat version of your rack, again, so I can once again feel comfortable with the option of a Hard Shell RTT. Yours has the Rails, that could make fitting "dicey"? The Australian Dollar vs. U.S. Dollar - ? - You didn't pay Aussie Prices did you ? I found only ONE USA Distributor, out of Florida & their website is still Under Construction ! ~ $1500 Aus. dollars + at todays exchange rate . . . ?? Being a Sponsor did you get a freebee ?

fitment shouldn't be much different with a flat rack. They still have the cross bars and strong mounting points. If anything, IMO, it's easier to mount things on the flat version than the caged version. The "mesh" on the bottom is roughly 1/4" rods of steel bent to form a grate/mesh. If worst comes to worst you can mount a tent, or anything you want to that mesh, and it'll be perfectly stable.


Here's some more photos of recent trips, I have a new batch to edit from yesterday that may take a few days for me to get around to. If anyone want to see them as soon as I finish editing them, make sure you're following me on instagram. I'll also be posting them to my website when I finish the edits.

Well, I don't do any of the "social media" thing - prefer not to "live or die" every moment of my day(s) glued to a phone or tablet, like I observe every time I drive along in town ! Not judging, just giving my point of view (way I role) ! NICE PICS, as usual !

Between GOBI & UNEEK, not sure who is the Priciest - could be a "draw" ! Front Runner and Rhino aren't too far behind . . . and so I've reluctantly decided to TOW ! Yea I know; me shocked too ! Haven't towed an RV (in 11 yrs) or boat (in 3yrs) ! Rather than go into the long version explanation -anyone interested can catch the latest "BRAD's WK2 RTT" Thread to see what it is I've been negotiating for, and why ! And I know what your all thinking . . . ANY towed "thing" is gonna cost way more than the most expensive Rack . . . absolutely True . . . but there are "reasons" - reluctant and matter-of-factly as they are, they are something I must contend with - (age & health the top 2).
ps; and yes I can be "stubborn" and "nit-picky" is on the top 5 list of things to look out for if you (she) wants to "date me" ! ha ha ! Can't help that, it's "who I am, who I was born to; the genomes have spoken . . . and another hearty ha ha ! Hey, KEEP ON SKIING ! FlyFinaticLou

Re: TheSkiingJeep - Overlanding Specialty Build

Here's some stuff from my most recent adventure. I didn't get any photos during the more technical parts, and I didn't get to my dash cam footage in time to get that.

I do have some go-pro footage I'll try to use, but the perspective isn't the best. I do have a neat stream crossing on tape though.

Hey monarchco, You are "Posing," or rather your Rig seems to be "posing" in each shot.
You should do a still-photo Video with Madonna singing 'Strike a Pose' ! Well I thought it was funny !
