Yakima vs. Thule vs. Mopar

I'm interested in the roof-top accessories for my new GC and need a little input...

I settled the Yakima vs. Thule debate debate myself a few years ago when I owned a LR3. IMO, the Yakima products are top notch, made in America, built to last a lifetime equipment. Thule is junk - probably made in China, but I can't confirm.

So my real question is, how are the Mopar accessories vs. Yakima? I need a ski rack for this winter season and Yakima doesn't have one ready yet. Should I wait (possibly too long) for them to develop one, or are the Mopar racks worth the money?

Re: Yakima vs. Thule vs. Mopar

Same question I have been having. Would love to wait on the Yakima's but may just buy through Mopar (Although, I believe the ski rack offered through Mopar is in fact a Thule rack).

Yeah, on Mopar's site I think it said the racks are Thule...
