Gobi Ladder for 5th Gen Toyota 4Runner – Do We all have one of these Yet?

Let me start off by saying that we avoided all things Gobi for one reason, EVERYONE HAS ONE. With that being said, they are still a bad ass company that manufactures and fabricates bad ass products. The Gobi Stealth Roof Rack is a seriously impressive, sexy rack. It was super tempting to go with Gobi Rack (on a side note, we ordered one and then canceled the order about a week in, due to a change of heart). The Gobi Rack for the 5t Gen 4Runner and many other generations is probably one of the most installed 4Runner roof racks ever, next to the 4Runner Baja Rack and the Front Runner.

The Gobi Ladder – 5th Gen

But, today we are talking about the Gobi Ladder for the 5th Gen. The Gobi Ladder for the 5th Gen is even more abused and overused than the actual rack itself. We wanted to go with a shrockworks ladder because that shit is straight up mean.

But, you have to have the Shrockworks bumper to mount it. And, we were not quite ready to pull the trigger on a rear bumper. The Expedition One bumper is the bumper we are looking at for our 5th Gen so the Shrockworks ladder didn’t pass the equation.

What Roof Rack are you Going to Buy (What we bought)? 

In the future, we will be grabbing the 3/4 Front Runner Rack. We really did just buy the Rhino-Rack because no one had one. And yeah, it does kick ass. It works great and mounts flawlessly to the stock OE roof rails on the 4Runner. We will be throwing the Rhino-Rack on my girls 4Runner and the Trail4R runner will be going with the  Front Runner Rack.

Is the Front Runner 3/4 In our Future?

But, the Front Runner Roof Rack is the same price and looks just a little better than the Rhino-Rack. Also, my girl is not a huge camp in the woods kind of girl so an RTT (Roof Top Tent) is useless to use. I would love one, but I would not justify buying a Roof Top Tent for my 4Runner as I just camp solo or with homies and RTT’s are a pain in the ass, clunky and just get in the way. It is much easier to throw a tiny tent in the back and just hit trails.

I just added the Rhino Pioneer Rack, with Full Rails, on the new Backbone system to my 17 4Runner. Backbone system rocks! Would be happy to share a pic. Would like to add a rear ladder as well. Hopefully no compatibility issues. So will look forward to reading about your Gobi ladder install & it’s clearance compatibility with Rhino racks. Thank you
