These are nice looking, well made, aerodynamic crossbars with a 150# load capacity. Perfect fit and very easily installed. I'll admit that they are not as nice as the OEM rack on my 08 GC Overland Diesel. It's a shame that Jeep didn't use that same raised rail and adjustable crossbar design on the new GC. These will do, however.

Thanks JamuJoe. I carry 12.5 ft long sup board so I think the down curve they have will be behind the shark fin antenna. I ordered those same roof rails. Any chance you have pics of them installed. Thanks.

I bought the Mopar crossbars and they are THULE Areobars just with a Mopar label. They fit well in the Flush Mount (does not clamp on the doors). If you order from THULE you have to buy the fit kit (419), the bar, and the pedestals(460R).

You mind posting the part number from your invoice? When looking at the Mopar site, the pictured ones clamp to the doors. Just want to make sure I get the right ones.

I assume they are quiet, due to the aero shape?

Nice pics, thanks Merrill. How do those towers (pedestals) attach to the rails?

I'm having trouble accepting the fact that my wife's Lexus has more viable roof rails than my JGC.
Is it the rails or the mounts that're weak points? Did your dealer guy at least mention that Thule (or Yakima) are going back to the drawing board to come up with something more sturdy.

They are quiet and attach to the side rails by a clamp. I just installed them so i can't speak to durability.

Here is the tag from the box.
Part Number: 82212072AC
Looks like Mopar has updated their website since i looked a week ago. You can order from the site now.

I believe it is the clamping mechanism not being strong enough to clamp to the rails. In other words, the rails are strong but don't provide a good enough structure to design a clamp that is strong enough.

He made no mention of a new design, just to use the gutter style instead.

If you want to smack your head some more, take a look at the nice raised, full length rails they put on the new Cherokee. I had my Jeep inspected the other day & just shook my head when I saw that.
If we're lucky, maybe on the next generation Grand Cherokee they'll do the same? Like they used to do in the past.

Oem style bars from APGO thru Amazon. $150. Perfect for surfboards probably wouldn't trust them with a couple hundred lbs of luggage in a basket. Very nice for the low cost though and for what I need them for.

Rhino Rack Kit

Took me about 3 hours to install in the dark and cold. The instructions could have been more detailed but using some common sense, you can figure it out. Overall, looks great and feels solid. Only time will tell. Purchaced from Autoanything for about 280.00. with free shipping.
