In looking on RR's site and at your pics, they don't appear to be secure racks (locked with a key). Is this correct?

I think the Rhino 2500 series mounts have locks. The Vortex/RSP ones that I have do not. They use a tamper-proof hex head screw to secure them to the car. Not something your average thief would have handy but you can pick them up at pretty much any hardware store.

Another option I recently came upon is from INNO. 140lb capacity, fits the rails. And I am hoping the Thule bars fit.

Base - IN-TR
Fit Hooks - TR132

these look easy to use as a base to customly mount a basket nice and low to the roof.

Repeating what I posted in my thread about Cargo Boxes:

Installed my Whispbar Through Bars last night. They look pretty good, but I will say the "fit kit" is basically a $70.00 nut and bolt and isn't much of a "fit". They don't clamp to the rails, they simply screw in to one of the 4 holes that holds the rails to the roof and sit on top of the rails. And the back one has no choice but to sit slightly over the vinyl covering at the end of the rail. Took a little while to get them set right, because they have to be "just right", or you can't get the cover to lock.

Happy to say they were silent at 70mph on the way to work this morning.

I got them from Cracks and Racks. I used the mtbr2011 coupon and got 10% off and free shipping.

Nice, I picked the Whispbar Througbar and Fit Kit on Amazon for free shipping and saved $70 by doing so. The bars looks great and they are super light. Now I just need to take delivery of my JGC so I try them out.

Dang, the Whispbar is twice the price of all the other available racks at over $500. What makes them better or justify the extra expense?

Beats me, I just liked the look of them.

I order the flush ones as they look more aerodynamic and sleek.

I'm guessing in the minds of the marketers, it's that catchy word Whispbar.

Functionally, probably nothing. But, they look good and give me more peace of mind that the $$$ worth of stuff I'm depending on them to hold, will hold.

I have the Yakima Whispbar on my 2014 JGC. I only use it for my bike and ski's. It's a perfect fit. There is or at least was a Thule flush rack almost identical to this one. I drive regulary on highway at 75+ mph and no wind noise.
