Cargo box

After absorbing the latest threads here on the roof rack cross rails, unless Thule comes out with something in the next week or so, I think I'm going to go with the Mopar product. http://www.justforjeeps.com/rerora.html

But wondering if anyone has tried the Mopar cargo box "designed" for the WK2? http://www.wk2jeeps.com/pdf/2011_wk2_accessories_01.pdf (page 11 in the catalog; page 13 in the PDF) Also considering the Thule 686, which is 3" longer than the Mopar (74" instead of 71"). http://www.thule.com/en/US/Products/...is%201600.aspx

Re: Cargo box

I received some more dimensions from Thule, and it looks like the 686 will fit, but just bend the antenna - by 3"! So still wondering if anyone's tried the Jeep box 82211181, which is exactly 3" shorter than the Thule? (Could they have been thinking that far ahead?!)

Re: Cargo box

Drummer, I think below is the biggest cargo box we've seen thus far.

mopar 18s and some roof rack pics...

Suggest either a shorty or sharkfin antenna as well. You should really only be concerned with the liftgate at full open, otherwise, go for the cargo box that suits your needs best.

Re: Cargo box

i'm looking into getting a cargo box as well, but not until mid Feb or early march. I'll start my research soon, but anything you find out in the meantime would be great!
