There is a good deal of info on various roof racks on this forum. I ended up going with the OEM rack and am very happy with the overall look and usability. I do have a slight whistle over 35 MPH with the roof vented but I'll figure that out soon. I added a couple of images of the roof rack in use from a recent ski trip. Good luck!

I installed the OEM Trailhawk front grill. I really like the look. The honeycomb insert matches the lower facia perfectly and the color sets it off a bit from other Laredo's in town.

Re: Roof rack

I have Yakima Railgrab towers, round bars, and Yakima Loadwarrior basket. Just saw RRO rails and seems like a great kit and like how it bolts into factory rail. I would still need longer side bar extension to allow for 2 canoe loading.
