Whispbar roof rack pics on 2015 SRT

Thought I'd post a few pics of the whispbar installed on my rig with no modifications and no addition of regular WK2 roof rails required. I didn't even have to trim any of the new hardware to make work …..the Whispbar kit directly bolts up over top of the SRT plastic rail covers using the OEM bolt positions. I'll throw the Thule up there tomorrow to show look. I am a firm believer in the cargo box for throwing extra gear in for trips etc…mine easily doubles my cargo capacity.

Re: Whispbar roof rack pics on 2015 SRT

I check my receipt for model number....standby. I do know the whispbar is generic, it's the fit kit that allows compatibility with srt, but I believe the fit kit is the same as any WK2 model GC.

If you can find the part number, that would be great. I tried to search their website, but it says its not compatible with the SRT. Their site doesn't seem to work well with my iPhone.

Looks good. Have been looking at the Whispbar as well. I believe that there is confusion with the Distributer whereas one Site indicates WK2 GC and another says will not fit JGC Limited. Going to communicate with the directly because it is the only system which is good looking on the vehicle.

Re: Whispbar roof rack pics on 2015 SRT

Here is my receipt with the only part numbers on it ….FYI, I used a company called Rackattack.com They have stores in Canada and Western USA from what I saw.

http://www.rackattack.com

My Thule is so large I had to move the rack forward to the very front of the OEM holes, otherwise the rear hatch spoiler would have contact with the back of the box…if you have a smaller cargo box you can definitely move your rack further back.….worked out nice thus far….test fit went well.

Lots of pics here….

Re: Whispbar roof rack pics on 2015 SRT

Does the Thule box mess with the XM Radio signal?

Re: Whispbar roof rack pics on 2015 SRT

Don't know yet, didn't leave the garage. Radio was on though in garage. Would have to try XM once outside to really know.
