need roof rack for 2015 JGC Overland

hey guys, im looking for a roof rack that will fit my rails on my 2015 overland. the only thing is that the rails on top are all black rather than black with the chrome inserts. will that make a difference on fit when buying?

Did they come black from the factory or did someone tint them black? I can't imagine that it would make a difference. Pretty sure all Overlands were the same from factory.

Color doesn't matter.. unless someone swapped them out for the low profile plastic rails. There are kits that work with the plastic rails though so you'd be fine either way.

thats the thing, the rails are just two plastic lines on the top of my roof with about 4 points where they are bolted in. maybe its because of the double sun roof

Did you buy it used? My 2011 Overland has the normal rails with big sunroof. It sounds like someone could have swapped out for the SRT rails for looks. Like CG...... said if that's the case, you can buy kits for that kind.

that is what they did, they are the low visibility rails from the srt. i went to my jeep dealer and they that is was not possible to mount a rack directly on them and i have had no luck on finding a kit that would do that
