Re: Whispbar roof rack pics on 2015 SRT

Thanks for sharing! I've been looking for a good set up on the roof rack.

Re: Whispbar roof rack pics on 2015 SRT

I had the S17 through bars from my 14 JGC, and hadn't sold them yet. Glad I saw this. Looking things up, it looks like they have a new fit kit for JGC without the rails:

I have the K624's still from the old JGC. I went ahead and ordered the K835 from REI and we will see how it fits.

Carbon6: Looks awesome. Your next mod: Shark Fin Antenna via Amazon so you aren't hitting your OEM one. It drives me crazy when I put snowboards on my setup

Re: Whispbar roof rack pics on 2015 SRT

Looks sweet! Thanks for sharing. Curious how you have black Whispbar crossbars... did you paint them? If so, what did you use? Definitely would want black as well to stick with the blacked-out theme.

BTW - first post. New to the forum and Jeep. Just got a 15' GC High Altitude, Silver. Lots of useful information in this forum.

Thanks in advance!

Took them apart and took them to a powdercoater. Easy to do and only cost $100 to do so (though would probably cost you less if you bring them in dismantled and ask for pricing). I spoke with Yakima at SEMA and they are starting to make their bars in black or silver but its not offered in the Whisper line which is what you need to mount to the Altitude/SRT rails.

Can you spread these to the furthest forward and rear bolt holes?

I have a wide snowboard stance. On my '14 Limited with normal rails and Jeep cross bars I had to have the back binding behind the rear carrier.

Now, with my '15 Altitude and the Whispbar setup I'm thinking both bindings can be in between the carriers.

Love checking out everybody's rides in this thread.

Re: Whispbar roof rack pics on 2015 SRT

I thank you much as I have been seriously thinking about having to get the oem side rails for my '15 Overland High Altitude with the same cosmetic only side rails, like the SRT. Even calling some dealers didn't help. If I understand your post and pics, the SRT rails are the same as the High Altitude. It looks like the K624 Fit Kit will fit perfectly over the plastic side rails and the actual support is from the studs that replace the oem bolts to the roof. It seems that even replacing the plastic rails with the oem Limited style rails would, in fact, be only cosmetic, too. Yes, of course, the cross bars will be aligned with those bolts/studs, but that should not pose any problems as there re five to choose from. I'm wondering if the Whispbars are as quiet when driving at high speed. Any noticeable wind noise? It does appear that you have upset TunedSe enough for his hair to fall out.. Oops! I didn't mean to notice that.

I whispbar on my Blackhawk ( Aussie altitude) and get no noise at all from the bars.

Re: Whispbar roof rack pics on 2015 SRT

Thought I'd check in and see how your Whispbar setups are holding up on those black side rails? I just put in an order for a set for my 2015 HA. Curious if there have been any issues or anything. Thanks.

Re: Whispbar roof rack pics on 2015 SRT

Used mine a few times over some long trips. No issues whatsoever. When I use my Thule it gets packed full and usually 150-200lbs in there.

What issues are you inquiring about? The Whispbar just sits on top of attached plastic rails. No stress to rails whatsoever.

Good to hear. I've seen people questioning the integrity of the plastic rails, so I've been curious how they are holding up. I also have a Thule cargo box that'll be about as packed as yours, but it sounds like it'll be all good. Thanks.
