Custom Limb Riser Attachment point for Jeep Gobi Rack

Hey Everyone,

Had time to work on this project yesterday. I wanted to have a limb riser that would help clear over my Gobi Rack. I also did not want to tap into the Jeep frame like a lot of the attachments want you to do. I used some scrap metal and for the lower attachment I purchased units from Steinjager. Also just ordered the wire from them as well. Total length of the line ended up being 59 inches.

Not bad, I actually used a pipe clamp from Home Deopt, but your idea works as well. Love saving that dollar.

Limb risers seem like a great functional idea to me but I'm worried about installing them and having the cable get hooked on something strong/immovable and tear up my hood or crease it where the attachment point is. I don't get the picture of how these wouldnt pull up on the hood every time they're pushing on a branch... Am I crazy??

Gobi rack=strong
1/4 cable = ridiculously strong
Hood= not so much

1/4 inch cable would be insanely large, what I use is is about 3/32" tiny stuff still thick enough to function. But a large tree limb yes would cause damage, the idea would be to avoid that on not drive at something faster than you want to hit it. On small brush/hang over stuff they work great. I normally only put mine on just before the trail run and honestly never really needed them. But they look nice and is cheap insurance for prevention of glass damage.

sweet job. I could have used one when i hit the lone tree in the whole of Moab. Good thing it was tall enough it cleared my windshield, but can't help but laugh lol.

Got my limb riser cables in and installed them. Really liking the setup. Now I just have to paint or powder coat the custom bracket.

Never understood why not just replace one of the bolts on the light rack with an eyebolt. Seems to be the most logical to me, at least ever since I had considered limb risers on my Jeep

Good to see the wire is forward of the awning enclosure, had to wait till the end to see the real distance.
Looks to be good job. Well done.
