Manned up my wife's Compass last weekend...
Well sorta, we put the Jeep Factory Sport Rails on the Jeep last weekend. I like the quality and craftsmanship of the rack but I'm questioning the functionality of the lock cores on the outside of the racks. I have taken pics but can't post them because I haven't been around long enough. I'd be glad to send them to someone that can post them.
Has anyone else purchased these and figured out if the locking mechanism serves any purpose except theft deterant by looking like they're locked to the Jeep. I haven't tried yet due to time but I think I could get them off without the key.
Unfortunately also, I have found out that Thule and Yakima are not making clips specifically for these rails yet. I'll have to go find some that will work. If I have any success, I'll let everyone know.
