2015 JGC Altitude roof rails

Are these for decoration only. Where can I get functional ones?

People have added Mopar cross bars to the rails. They fit well and are pretty low profile. I would supect you could probably find some pics if you search for them

Re: 2015 JGC Altitude roof rails

I just got off the phone with JustForJeeps and they are saying that nothing can be mounted directly to the factory rails on the Altitude. I don't know that I believe this. there has got to be something out there that you can mount to factory rails.

Here are the ones that they recommend.

Thule Removable Roof Rack Crossbars for Jeep Grand Cherokee - Item # TR486056 #TR486056

These mount to the door frames.

Not a fan of those. I am going to install a Hidden Hitch. That was my plan originally to mount my bikes and snowboards.

2015 JGC Altitude roof rails

So the Altitude rails are different than say the Limited and Overlands rails? If so that just sucks. I have Yakima Wispbars on mine during the summer to haul my canoe around.

I leave them on during summer but have them off for the winter. Take about 10min to install after initial setup. They just mount into the groove of the rails by removing a screw holding the rail down and placing a stud into it. Basically the rack is tied into the roof. Very sturdy.
