Be warned they tend to eat into MPG. I've got one for our Grand Cherokee and even with the V8 it makes a noticeable difference in my MPG. I'm thinking the basket on my 2.4L will make the whole point of having a 4cly moot.
I have a roof bag my dad gave me that's sitting in my garage. I'm thinking something like that might work better on the smaller jeeps to give better aerodynamics and thus help with the MPG. I've yet to give it a shot but once I get a set of cross bars I'm going to give it a try.
All that aside I have the Rola basket and love it.
