Roof rack rails

Thanks to milous and his tracking sheet, it looks like my jeep will be in next week...I ordered it 8/12! Nice!

I'm thinking of having the dealer add on the roof rack rails so I can just fold it in to the monthly payment. I need it for a cargo carrier i already own.

Does anyone have experience with these rails? I think they are $225. Have they worked ok?

Are there cheaper aftermarket alternatives that anyone can recommend?

Re: Roof rack rails

I was also wondering about alternatives. At least it looks like these can be purchased after market, and are easy to install. Google the part number: 82212072AB

Re: Roof rack rails

I called my local dealer and they still have no accessories for the new Jeep.

They're very close together... The tracks don't allow for much of a spread between them. I use a Thule rocket box all winter for all the snow related toys... not sure if it'll even fit! Testing it out tomorrow. I hope so or I'm totally screwed!

Re: Roof rack rails

WK2O, could you please post photos of both the bar and the mounts? Thanks.

If they don't work out for your rocket box, I'd be hppy to buy them at your cost.
