Re: Side Roof Rack Rails - NEED HELP PLEASE..

This situation literally makes me sick. I have the OEM replica cross bars sitting here (got them on eBay, very nice actually) and a aftermarket snowboard rack to strap to those.

My Altitude has these 'decorative' rails everyone is talking about here

1) What a joke
2) There HAS to be a solution to this other than that horrible looking overpriced Thule setup that grips the doors
3) I'm not drilling anything on my roof
4) Can we reach out to some aftermarket companies here? This affects how many WK2s?

Re: Side Roof Rack Rails - NEED HELP PLEASE..

over at Cherokeesrt8 dot com - some dude with an SRT8 WK2 did this no problem , ordered factory side rails and installed them himself

I just asked him for more details

Here is a pic of his SRT8 with the factory side rails installed that everyone seems to think is so impossible with a Thule crossbar system

Re: Side Roof Rack Rails - NEED HELP PLEASE..

I think Rocky Road Outfitters has a solution. I too have the 'decorative' rails and would like to have a roof basket on my WK2

Re: Side Roof Rack Rails - NEED HELP PLEASE..

You just need to get longer bolts and screw the oem's down...but first you need to find a screw or use sealant to cover the bolt holes not used. You can get the oem side rails on justforjeeps.com Call 1888-651-jeep and talk with peter...tell him scott from jeepgarage sent you for a discount. I believe they also have the thule cross rails
