roof rack problems...
What's goin on everyone? New Jeep owner here (Bristol, PA)...was given this forum in hopes to resolve a problem I'm having. I just bought a 2014 Grand Cherokee Laredo and the roof rack consists of flush mounted molding held on by what looks like 6 T25 (maybe) bolts. I NEED a functional roof rack so I ordered a THULE Aeroblade Rapid Transverse system. After getting it together, it only spans from mid front door to mid back door; This is because the clips have to grip onto the frame of the jeep. I can't extend them anymore because of the sides of the Jeep...My question- Has anyone replaced the factory side rails with others, maybe even other SUV brand side rails that are slighlty elevated so that a rachet strap can go under them? HELP!!! Thanks in advance
