Love the rack! Not interested in purchasing at this time, but a few questions should I purchase this or a similar on in the future:
1. Did you need to drill into the vehicle at all and if so, for what piece? How difficult was this to install?
2. How did you route wires for lights and where was switch installed?

Im basically wondering what if any holes do i need to put in the jeep, or if the rack somehow attaches via the rails already in the jeep?

Any damage to jeep when you removed it?

thx!

Agreed about blocking the sunroof Plus I don't think I would ever drill into my new GC like that. (as it appears you have to especially for the ladder.)
Where did you run the power cord to for the lights?

No holes needed other than how you install the switches. I drilled to small round holes in the console by the gearshift for the lights. One for forward and one for the back lights.

No drilling to run the wires from the rack to the console. I ran them along the passenger side window and frame and tucked them into the crevice and then covered the 2 wires up with black silicone. Couldn't tell they were there at all. When I removed everything, no marks on the roof or tailgate but of course there were the 2 switches in the console. I left those in there. Just disconnected the power to them.

if you are selling this on here you may be better off putting it in the classified section of the forum.
No drilling required for the ladder. It slips over the top of the tailgate with a bracket and you install a piece of metal with double sided sticky tape and you mount a lower bracket to the tailgate with set screws against that metal. So no damage to the vehicle at all. They make sure that your truck is protected from all points of contact. No rattles or shaking. Very solid. I would highly recommend them for anyone interested in adding one.

There is a open spot for the sunroof, the primary opening anyway. Yes the pano is covered in the back with the grate, but you can still see out unless of course you have stuff up there.

Sorry I can't. I traded my GC in back in November so I no longer have it and I didn't take any pics of the wires. You can tuck them under the strip of rubber/plastic ontop of the roof and then run them down the windshield and using a screwdriver or plastic puddy knife, you can press them into the side. Then just use some black silicone to seal them in there. I ran a bead from top to bottom and then smoothed it out like you would do if you caulked your tub. worked perfectly. You can run the wires into the engine bay through a small opening near the hinge area so no drilling needed. Then I found a wire harness going into the cab that I pulled two wires through for the switches.

Do you have any additional photos that aren't close up shots. I'd really like to see how this rack looks from a distance and out in the wild.
