Inno IN-TR Roof Rack

I was happy to find recently that Inno now makes a base system for the WK2 that utilizes the factory flush rails. The unit is of high quality and fits great. I added an Inno wind fairing which seems to do a good job of reducing any wind noise.

Below are the specifics:
Base System - Inno IN-TR
Fit Hooks (Fit Kit) - TR132
Crossbars - IN-B127 (50") / IN-B137 (54")
Fairing - INA261 (Medium, aprox. 40")

I was just looking at these and your post popped up in a search. Look good on the GC. I need to find out if Thule bars will fit the INNO base, it looks like they might. Its the only thing keeping me from placing an order.

You could call ORS and ask them, they're very helpful.

I'll break out my caliper when I get home from work and measure the Inno crossbars.

Re: Inno IN-TR Roof Rack

The Inno crossbars are 1.265" (aprox. 32mm) wide x 0.90" (aprox. 23mm) tall.

Inside width of the Inno stay is 1.335" (aprox. 34mm).

Hope this helps

"Better" is a subjective term.

I can only tell you that for me, the MOPAR pieces look kinda cheap, don't seem to fit as well, and are not as wide so you may be limited in loading some wider items on the roof.

I'm sure the MOPAR crossbars work great, just wasn't what I was looking for. Also I believe MOPAR no longer carries/sells the older style crossbars that used the factory flush rails to mount... now I only see the universal door-mount units being offered

Interesting. Are you sure the pcture is correct? Did not mean to hijack the thread but am not familiar with Inno. Looking at the Mopar (Jeep Grand Cherokee Sport Utility Bars (Part No: 82212072AC)) and this shows the rail mount. If Thule and Mopar (made by Thule) went away from the rail mount and to teh roof mounted, then are others statying with teh rail mount? Will teh Inno be stronger? I want to stay with a rail mounted and not a door mount.

The link you posted above shows the ones I was thinking of, that use the factory flush rails. Not sure what's up with that pic on MOPAR's website.

I think the MOPAR rack/crossbars have a weight limit of 150lbs and the Inno is 165lbs? Pretty similar. I've been told the Thule Traverse, door-mount, rack has a higher weight limit... not sure if that's true though. I primarily wanted to use the factory flush rails for asthetics and because I'm stubborn... Jeep put those rails up there for a reason, I wanted to use them.

There are a couple of other options that still use the factory flush rails:Yakima Whispbar and Yakima Railgrab

The Whispbar requires removing some of the factory flush rail attaching hardware in order to install long threaded mounting studs. This option didn't appeal to me because I don't want to leave the roof rack on the GC all the time; removing/reinstalling the factory hardware could potentially introduce a water leak into the cabin which is not ideal.
https://www.etrailer.com/tv-install-...ee-wb-s25.aspx

I didn't really care for the way the Railgrab attaches using the pin/claw method. Inno uses a simple bracket with dual J-hooks that grab both inside and outside edges of the factory flush rail... I tried to capture this in the pictures above.

Thanks, ORS confirmed that the Thule bars fit. Makes the decision so much easier. How do you find the noise while driving?

This rack is for my wife's rig and so far I've only done the one fitting/test drive with the fairing installed. With fairing installed at 60mph, extra wind noise was negligible... that's as fast as I got on the bumpy back country roads near my house. Sorry, I can't yet comment on wind noise levels with just crossbars minus the fairing.
