ski rails for the 2012 SRT8

The original moldings are just that...moldings and non functional. I just bought the standard Grand Cherokee rails and it seems to be missing a piece on the ends where it slides into place. Any idea's? My dealer has no idea what's going on.

Has anyone else done this, aside of the rails was there any piecies that should have been included in the box? (The parts rep did mentioned they were returned).

All I want to do is mount my snowboard rack. It shouldnt be this difficult..ugh.

Re: ski rails for the 2012 SRT8

I was told that the regular GC rails could interfere with the airbag system in the event of an rollover. I purched the clamp on ones from Just for Jeeps .com I haven't put them on yet but i'm inpressed with the quality of them.

Re: ski rails for the 2012 SRT8

Ok I just got back from my Squaw Valley USA Ski trip. 2 of the days I had fresh powder Anyway I got to use the ski rack. It worked fine. It clamped on and didn't hurt the paint. The directions were a bit squarlly but I figured it out. Only thing I don't like is the clamp interfears with the weather strip on the door and causes some wind noise. I just turned up those 19 speakers
