Bike rack on factory crossbars

Is there a fork bike rack mount that will clamp directly to the factory crossbars? Searched forum and Google. Nothing definitive found...

i doubt theres one made specifically for the jeep, but theres probably universal ones you could make work.

I bought some older Thule racks for cheap because they used u clamps to mount on, but turned out the u wasn't wide enough, I ended up just drilling holes in the crossbars for them to mount. Work great! I know inno racks have universal mounting that will work. Another option if you want cheap and fork rack... Just get the $11 fork mounts from amazon that are for truck beds. Bolt them into the front or back crossbar and just use a bungee to hole the back tire on the other cross bar. Some options for you!

Looks like these will do the trick. http://www.ebay.com/itm/200942009209...84.m1423.l2649

I had good experience using a Rocky Mounts on the factory roof rack of my Grand Cherokee. A simple and inexpensive alternative to buying an entire aftermarket rack system (i.e. Yakima, Thule). However it is not as secure. Just something to consider.
