i think the gobi leans on the car for support
the uneek flexes a bit as part of how it's designed (it doesn't touch the car)

i think in the case of a malfunction/overload/big bumps, this means the uneek is less likely to cause damage

also check you can mount on whatever rear bar you have or might get in future

personally i have ordered the AEV rhino rack which mounts to the roll cage through the roof, the frontrunner rack is similar

more strength but at the expense of drilling the top and not being able to remove it easily, I want it for a roof top tent though so strength is more important

the rhino rack backbone looks decent if you don't like the outer-cage design but still want to be able to take the hard top off (probably less strong than a roll cage rack)

uneek and gobi are obviously compatible with the soft top though

I feel like the uneek will rattle less once it gets old!
