Re: Mopar roof rack
I like them in that they do what I ask of them... They install, fit, & function just fine for my needs now.
I occasionally have to carry some long boxes that I do not want inside the cabin & they are able to allow that.
Yes, I would say they are strong & durable so far... And, I wish that I had more room front to rear but the Jeep's panoramic sunroof limits that and I did not want to change the rails as some others have.
Also, these Mopars were really not my first choice for looks, as I think that both the Thule AeroBlade and Yakima Whispbar load bars are more eye-appealing with their aerodynamic shapes plus look to sit a little lower & closer to the Jeep roof line.
But when pricing the complete Thule set-up with 460R Rapid Podiums & Fit kit, ARB47 AeroBlades, & a 4-Pack lock kit the cost was still over $435.
The Mopars list for $285. and even though I have a 'better than the norm' dealer who was willing to decently discount, I still went to Amazon like others here in JG and got them for $219.
So summing up, these OEM Mopar bars have the good, strong, & value points for my needs, plus I know that the additional Mopar/Thule accessories could work later as my needs change.
