Roof Rack quick question

I'm thinking about buying this, http://www.discountramps.com/roof-cargo-rack.htm... Problem is, I don't have cross rails, where can I get them and how much are they? Links to them would be great. Thanks

Yakima and Thule both make excellent cross rails that work on the WJ.

I have Yakima 48" cross bars and they work (and look) great. http://www.rei.com/product/490001/ya...ound-bars-pair

If you go with Yakima, I recommend the RailGrab set, they keep a low profile: http://www.rei.com/product/784531/ya...owers-set-of-4

Shop around first before going to REI, they're usually more expensive unless there's a sale on specific brands.

I don't know about finding factory ones, but if you want ones that will work effectively you can find universal ones on Amazon. Just gotta read some reviews and do research to find some that will work for your ride.

I have 2 sets of factory cross rails for sale if you're interested.

I have a black set from a 2002 WJ and a silver set from a 2004 Freedom Edition WJ.

Send me a pm if you're interested.

Thanks.

With regards to crossrails, I thought I recently saw a thread where a guy made his own using metal fence post for his Rola rack...
I can't seem to find the thread but it was kind of like this... http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f28/h...-cheap-849907/

Here's some factory ones in classifieds... http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f130/...rails-1336871/

This is also a way of mounting the rack without crossrails...
http://www.jeepsunlimited.com/forums...ight=roof+rack

I recently got my Rola from these guys and I love it... best price I could find... $152 bucks, free shipping and I think they always have 10% off sales... looks like they have one now too... so take 15 bucks off that price..

http://www.performanceparts4less.com/search-by-keyword.html

if it isn't a direct link search by keyword for "rola 59504"
They don't stock anything though and direct ship it from the manufacturer... I still had mine within two weeks of placing the order though...

Sorry for crappy picture... but it's cold and wet outside so garage pic has to do...

I just added some to my Jeep. Look in the classifieds as people have suggested. I picked mine up in a part out for $40. I cleaned them up a bit and rattle canned them. So I'm in the hole about $45, well worth it.

I can't remember who it was, it's a white WJ, but they welded on some tabs to their Rola. They then used those tabs and mounted it straight onto the rails. I'm sure if you run a search on 'Rola Roof Rack' you'd be able to find it.
