WJ with ROLA Roof Rack

Hey all!

I just mounted my Rola atop my 99 WJ. Now I've got a question, the OEM cross members seem to have a lot flex to them. Has anyone with this set up experienced any problems carrying loads? Any in put would be appreciated.

Thanks!

can you spread out the mounts wider, closeer to the outer rails?

Theres no reason for them to flex if you have your mounts pushed to the outside. Ask myjeeplovesmud, he has the same rack and actually uses his. He should know.
