Thanks, that's 100% what I'm going to do going forward. I found them great to work with. Very reasonable. Wish I had known that before, would have saved me some headaches and lost time.

I've got the the rock rails on order for my 2015 Overland and I've scheduled a local jeep body shop to put them on. They said they've never installed them before but they should be able to do it. We will see. I'll update later.

Spent some time on the Cape.
Thule colors matched nice.

FYI. Thule Atlantis 1800xt rubs the lift gate when opened.
Time to look at other rack mounts.

A great match indeed. I could look at Billet Silver all day long, but I am a bit biased.

Thanks for the link. How's the wind noise with the rack?

No wind noise, but I installed the fairing at the same time as the rack. Slightly modified a 38" Yakima thanks to another user that's either on here or the other forum. I can't remember.

Thanks for the heads up on the Yakima fairing. I saw someone else have one as well. I guess I'll look into that as well. Does it interfere with your sunroof open?

Re: What did you do to your WK2 today?

Picked up some stock 20s with Forteras for cheap off Craigslist. Will probably get some new A/Ts mounted on them if I don't get 22s. ImageUploadedByJeepGarage1439078984.192410.jpg

Also changed the grill to the black honeycomb to match the lower portion. Did top down method, and it was a pain in the ass, will never try it again.
