Roof rack recommendations.

I've only had my Jeep for a month (today) & I'm looking to add a roof rack for carrying my kayaks.

I've done a ton of searching around the net for the best deals, etc, but can't seem to find one or two particular brands that stand out above the rest. So, I figured I'd go directly to the source & ask you guys.

Do any of you have any crossbars that you recommend? How about kayak racks??

Thanks in advance for your help.

Re: Roof rack recommendations.

I like the RRO racks for the Liberty. I am just not sure if there is kayak attachment that will fit it. You should contact them and see.

Thanks for the input ...the two carriers for kayaks that I've been looking at are made by INNO, & the other one is by Swiss Cargo. I have found a ton of crossbars n Ebay & other discount sites that say they're compatible, but just leery of something that only costs $40.00 compared to $150+ everywhere else.

Re: Roof rack recommendations.

So, I finally bought some crossbars to go on the factory side rails, but now I'm having trouble determining the proper spacing between them. Anybody have any thoughts/suggestions/etc on how to space them out the right way??

Thanks in advance,

-K.

All depends on what you are going to use it for. Ski rack, bike rack, rola basket. All will determine how far apart you space them.

I'm going to be putting a kayak rack up top to haul my two kayaks around.

Thanks,
