Snowboard Roof Rack

I am looking to purchase a roof rack for my '14 JGC limited to prepare for the upcoming snowboarding season. I searched the forum and it looks like most of the posts are over a year old.

Any suggestions/recommendations on a roof rack?

I think there are over 1 trillion posts on roof racks. I happened to pick the Thule option, but for unfrozen water toy use.

Re: Snowboard Roof Rack

Just installed Whispbar thru bars today. I have WB 300 ski/board rack for 2 sets of skis and 2 boards. The rack can be elevated on one or both sides so bindings don't hit the roof.

For summer, I have 2 WB201 bike racks.

If you get Whispbars (sold by Yakima) any rack system just slides into grooves on the bars, easy install/removal.

Re: Snowboard Roof Rack

A few members have purchased these and said they were good if your looking to keep costs reasonable.

I'm about to push the button on them.

Thanks guys. The wb300 sounds interesting since it gives you the that extra flexibility.

The WB300 comes with universal mounts for round bars (Yakima), square bars (Thule), and factory crossbars.
