    Somebody has made it work without mounting to the side. Now I just need to find out how.

      yes, there are a couple owners out there that have done this. You have to cut into the water containers and modify the way it mounts. There is no way to make it work without a full re-design...which will not be done.

      So, again, if you wnat this combo, buy the AEV corner guards and the drill application brackets for the GOBI.

      There is no other way around it.

        So it basically makes the water containers useless?

          Sorry, that's not in my vocabulary. I'll find a way and tell people about it.

            Gobi rack/AEV rear bumper working solution

            There is now a Gobi rack/AEV rear bumper working solution that was developed by Gobi. It is a no drill solution that allows to the products to work together without loss of functionality of either product.

                  There are no pictures on the site yet since this development is very new, about two weeks new.

                  Ok, scratch that. I just saw the update of pictures posted. That is my Jeep in the pictures.

                  The new brackets are in stock and being shipped. I currently have a 2008 Unlimited Rubicon with the AEV rear bumper w/o tire carrier and the latest edition of the Gobi Recon Stealth rack. I do have some random pictures, but nothing up close. I will be working on taking better pictures soon. Paul at Gobi has approved me sending this update out and looks forward to your interests and orders. Let him know you heard it from SummitJeep (John).

                          Any update to this? Are they available yet?
                          Maybe a silly question... Would one be able to use this Gobi setup with a stock rear bumper (getting an AEV bumper in the future but the need of a rack takes priority)
