Which roof rack and surfboard carrier should I get?

I'm having trouble finding the right one.
Does anyone have a good opinion on this?

I have Thule Aero Blades and they work really good and no wind noise.

I have the Mopar ones, which are basically a Thule kit. No noise and was easy enough to install.

Real OEM Mopar crossbars are, in fact, Thule Aero.

OP asked about crossbars for a 2014. I looked at them at the dealer on July 24. The Mopar crossbars are Thule Aero Blades.. See berk483's posting above.
