Only thing you'll need are some of the bolts to hold it down if your jeep doesn't have them. Super easy to find at ace though and cost another $5.
PM me if you have any other questions.
People bash on them since they have proven they do not care what type of service they give after the sale. If you have an issue tough luck. Been that way ever since I got on any of the forums back ten years ago. Poor customer service, rip off other companies ideas and sell them as their own etc .

I called them up the day after the kit arrived and they spent about half an hour explaining a few things. In my experiences their customer service has been above and beyond what I would have expected.

There are others here who enjoy their company as well but probably get tired of people constantly shutting their opinions down with super biased remarks.

Humm, I like the looks of that. I didn't even notice last week when I bought my KK that the roof rack wasn't "complete". I had a 01 S-10 Blazer, and I used the roof rack many times. Kinda dissapointing being it's a Jeep, like the fact I also don't have a tow hitch.....that's another story. I need to learn to look things over more closly when buying things. LOL
But, I still love my new KK!

I'm where?

Did they send something in the kit to fill in the spots on the roof where it looks as though theres a spot missing? or do you have to get something to fill that in? I have a 2012 jeep lib with the full solid rails. (no holes) im really thinking about buying the rails your talking about but i want to make sure. I dont really want any holes in my roof. Its been raining and snowing way to much lately. thank you for the info

just purchased a 2011 KK Liberty this last weekend and I'm in the EXACT SAME BOAT! Only one keyless entry set of keys. No roof rack. No hitch. Meh. At least I finally got a Jeep though!

There are no exposed holes. You have to literally pull the old side rails up which leaves a glue substance. Using some adhesive remover I got it up and sprayed a fine line of plasti dip under.

There are absolutely no exposed holes though...I'm in CO with about 14" of snow right now so I promise no holes

Do they not make OEM cross bars like the Cherokee and Patiot? I like how those look, wide and even with the top of the side rails, but looks like the "OEM" cross bars for the Liberty is just Thule branded ones that like most stick up a couple inches above the side rails and hang over a couple inches on the sides as well.

Yakima's Whispbar Rail Bar works with the Liberty factory raised rails. These are very flat and aerodynamic. It also looks like Thule is planning to introduce a similar cross bar called the "AeroBlade Edge Raised Rails" (7500 series). They both look great but... both aero wing designs are wide and work best with accessories that are made to use the T-slots. Also, rail bars are low and can be problematic with accessories that need a lot of clearance below the rail.
