Maximum distance on Mopar roof bars

Does anyone know the maximum separation distance between a set of Mopar roof rack cross bars ? I'm looking for the center to center distance.

It looks like the factory installed side rails give you about 36", but that doesn't take into account the width of the Mopar mounting bracket (tower). I'm thinking that the brackets are about 5" to 6" which would decrease the 36" to around 30". Not sure though.

Thanks bjgcfan. Looks like my existing roof top carrier will work. Appreciate it.
