2017 Jeep Compass roof carrying capacity?

Hi guys,

I just got a new 2017 Jeep Compass Trailhawk.

I'm trying to figure out the maximum load capacity of the flush roof racks it came with.

Ultimately, I'd like to mount the Tepui Kukenam Ruggedized tent which is ~180lbs.

The owners manual says "The load carried on the roof, when equipped with a luggage rack, must not exceed 150 lbs (68kg), and it should be uniformly distributed."

Are the flush roof racks considered as luggage racks?

I also wanted to get these crossbars and wanted to get anyone's opinion on these:
Thule AeroBlade ARB47
Thule Rapid Podium Foot Pack 460R

Thanks guys!

I second the question.. Ive seen cross bars with rating of 150lbs. Not sure if you get 300lbs when using 2 or 150 is max roof weight
