cross bars

I am 5 days into owning my 2015 Summit. It came w/ roof side rails but I need cross bars to carry my Yakima cartop carrier.

So, does mopar make OEM crossbars?

Also, do the crossbars give clearance for what I'm guessing is the GPS antenna mounted on the roof near the rear? It sticks up several inches above the roof rails.

Any insight is greatly appreciated.

WK2 Rack Systems: Manufacturers List

that'll have all the information you'll need.

and to answer your question, yes mopar has OEM roof rails. As far as I know, the shark fin antenna will clear with most of the bars (even baskets on top).

I have the mopar cross bars on my 14 Limited. No issues with clearing the antenna. ImageUploadedByJeepGarage1424523148.975719.jpg

Re: cross bars

Ive got the Rocky road outfitters side rails and cross bars and they look great. Only issue is the crossbars are not as easily adjustable as one would prefer. Yout can get the side rails and then add the Thule crossroads in either the cube or aero bars to them and it fits just fine. Cant find the specific mention of them on the forum right now but I know they fit well and have seen one case of em up around me. Good luck.
