Bye Bye tax refund, hello Gobi rack (maybe)

Salty Soul Jeep Shirt


So i’ve done a modest amount of research and decided that for my next accessory I would like a way to haul my kayak on the Jeep. I compared the Gobi Stealth, Garvin Expedition, Smittybilt Defender, and generic crossbars. I liked the price of the Smittybilt the crossbars, but didnt like that they mounted to the fiberglass gutters. The Gobi won out over the Garvin due to being able to walk on top of it, and overall design quality seem better

So enough rambling, here are my questions:

1) Where is the best place to buy a Gobi Stealth (any forum discounts?)

2) Which rack accessories are must haves?

3) Am I making the right decision by buying the Gobi over the others? What do you use for hauling your kayak?
