Thanks.
I put them on a 2014 Limited. As it turns out, they are very secure, but make too much noise in my opinion to leave them on all the time. I even turned them around, but my original mounting was quieter. I can here them @ > 40 mph. Too bad cause I wanted to leave them on all the time. i am taking them of tomorrow, will try to snap a few shots, but they will be mounted backwards.

Thanks. If you get a chance.... I would like to see what they look like. Mine would be part-time install anyway. Sorry I spelled your "Name" wrong.

I installed the rocky road side rails and rack. Remarkably strong and secure system.

Personally, I'd like to get some true raised side rails. I'm hoping that the rails on the Trailhawk II Concept will become production and be able to be bolted onto the regurlar WK2s

I have the Yakima whispbars (throughbar) and the foot kit 624 They are amazing, I can't hear them at all and they look really good.

This is where I bought my 624 kit and it looks like they still have them in stock. Get them while you can.

Matt18, thanks for posting the pics. What length bars are those? BTW, Amazon still sells the K624 smartfoot kits; mine just arrived.
