Re: Best roof rack for 2014 cherokee - quietness!

The Amazon rack I installed on our JGC is quiet!

Took Smiffy down I-10 for a blast up to 80mph without the radio on.
I really didn't notice anything, perhaps just a tad of wind noise but it was so insignificant, I didn't know if that is what it sounded like before I installed it! LOL

Don't have these but I definitely want them. They are the best looking option by far.

I heard that the rhino racks weren't great from a number of people. That they were loud and no as good of quality as Yakima or Thule. I ended up getting the Whispbar Through Bar. Hopefully they are great. Noise is my biggest concern. I get them next week.

Re: Best roof rack for 2014 cherokee

I hope you have as much luck with them as I have had. I have had the Whispbar's on my jeep for almost 3years now with out removing them. While every bar has some noise, these have far less than any others I have owned, much quieter than my full fairing Thule round bars that I used on a previous car....

I drive 60 highway miles a day with them and the noise they make is less noticeable than the blower motor whine in my 2011. I have read a suggestion somewhere if you get any noise to duct tape over the openings on the inside of the tower and it helps. That said I have not had this problem or had to do this.

Re: Best roof rack for 2014 grand cherokee

I just got my Whispbars (through bars) and put them on yesterday. I'm impressed!

They are by FAR the quietest roof bars I have ever had. I think that if you're looking for the quietest option this is it! I don't notice any noise. Going to drive to CO next week so that will be the big test.

Got the part numbers for what you installed? For some reason these roof rack choices overwhelm me!

Ya it's the Whispebar S17 with the K624 fit kit.

If you type in "Whispbar Grand Cherokee" into eBay ReRack has the whole kit for a GREAT price.

They also have the other whispbar set ups for the GCs so you can see all your options.

Thanks. Just ordered a set for far less than I thought I'd be able to get them. This will make packing for trips so much easier. That damned dog crate takes a lot of space!
