Options for roof cross bars

I' m ready to add some roof cross bars to my WK2. What are my options? I would prefer something other than the OEM bars from Mopar.

Thule & Yakima, also others. I decided to get the Mopar ones (ordered from Amazon last night for only $218). I've got a Thule hitch rack for bikes and just need cross bars for surf/paddleboards.

^^^same here and so far the OEM rack is working great. Plenty strong enough for my needs and once you figure it out, it really only takes me a few mintues to remove when not needed.

Re: Options for roof cross bars

isn't the Mopar OEM rails made by Thule? The locks etc look exactly the same thing.
