I think I want to add a Gobi Ladder to the FJ...anyone have one for sell? Anyone have one and love it? Can you really use it?

I had one for about a year and sold it about a 2 weeks ago. It is rated for 200lbs so most can use it. I found that once I got my All Pro rock rails I never even thought about it. And the reason I ended up getting rid of it was because I wanted to be able to open my rear window for ventilation. If you use your rear window at all, that capability is gone with a ladder.

Ah...did not think of that. I have a 3"-4" hook thingy that I put on my rear window so I can open it enough for ventilation for my dog. But I don't usually open it all the way. Do you think I would still be able to open it that far?

Curious, how much you sell it for? Anyone we know?

I use this. The large end fits directly into the latch on the door and the other end connects to the "loop" on the glass. I have plasti-dipped it more so it does not rattle. Works great and the dog can now get air but not escape.

I don't remember exactly how much you could open it but I am pretty sure it wasn't more than 2 inches. I took a shot in the dark and asked $175 in the blue room and a few people dove on it. I was trying to start high so I could get between $125 and $150. They are only $200 new. They show up on the blue room every so often.

Saw on the Blue Room that the distance is 1 3/4" glass to ladder...not very much. I may have to reconsider.

It definitely looks cool, but it is a significant sacrifice.
