Thule Roof Rack for 2011 WK2?

I'm looking to add a roof rack onto my 2011 WK2. I just want to confirm I have the correct pieces:

KIT4019 Podium Fit Kit
460R Rapid Podium Foot
THARB53 53" Aeroblade

I have also seen a 47" aeroblade listed for a 2011WK2. What's the proper length for my Jeep?

I'm ultimately looking to add kayak brackets. Any compatibility issues with the Aeroblade style cross bars?

Re: Thule Roof Rack for 2011 WK2?

I have the same feet and fit kit, but 47" bars. That is the minimum length that works. You can longer, just depends on what you plan to hull on top and if you are okay with the extra hang over.

You should not have an issue with the kayak rack as long as you buy one compatible with aero bars. You can always flip the kayak upside down and strap direct to the bars.
