Roof Rack - Gutter mount or Rack mount??
 
Gentlemen,
Iím wanting to buy a roof rack for a 92 Cherokee, something big enough for the spare tire and camping gear. Does anyone have an opinion regarding using gutter mounts or rack mounts? Is one better then the other????

Gutter mount is stronger.

I run Thule gutter mounts. They are very strong and you can run 2 or more sets if you need to. You can find them on ebay very cheap.

Or try:

Square bars and they accept all Thule, Yakima, etc. products. The only thing I don't like about mine is that they don't have a lock for the knobs. I am sure Thule knobs would work, but haven't found any yet to try them out.

I know it's not the best picture to show the rack, but here is what it looks like.
