SRT Roof Rack

Does anyone know if a roof rack will be available on the SRT? Will it have attachment points? Or would you have to have the clips that go into your doors?

Re: SRT Roof Rack

I would bet that the wk2 non-SRt rack will swap right over....just like the prior gen. No reason for Jeep to put a completely different roof on the SRT.

Reason I ask is in the pictures it doesn't look like it has rails. So it looks like they don't include rails with SRT like the base? So the previous gen was the same way but you could put on factory rails?

Re: SRT Roof Rack

the previous gen was the same way...its more of a vanity cover...BUT...it could be removed easily and a roof rack from the non SRT model added. They have the same roof skins...they just dont put a roof rack on the SRT

Has anyone successfully fitted roof racks yet to their WK2 SRT8.

The link below shows it can be done - and notes
"Our tester was accessorized by Mopar with a beefy Thule roof rack ($276) and ski/snowboard carrier ($172)
http://www.autoweek.com/article/20120518/carreviews/120519834

But at least in Australia there is no official solution it seems.

I have been sent the following from my dealer.............

Be advised that there is no accessory roof rail kit available for either the SRT8 or Jet editions of the Grand Cherokee this means you cannot fit the genuine Mopar/Jeep cross bars.

For safety reasons we are unable to advise on deviations and modification from factory fitted specifications and therefore are unable to advise on retro fitting the standard production roof rails.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Re: SRT Roof Rack

I was told by the dealer here the reason the SRT dosen't have the roof rails, in a rollover they could interfere with the air bag system. I ordered the clamp on ones from Just for Jeeps.com to hual my skies.

Re: SRT Roof Rack

Hi - I notice you are in Gundaroo - one of the Canberra dealers quoted my $900 for the roof racks - I said forget it....

The only ones that fit are made by Thule for Mopar - see if you can get them from the states - for around half the price....they are ugly though........

I tried my usual roof rack guy in Canberra - they cannot access these special parts made directly for Jeep.

If you PM me with your email I will send you the package of info i sent my roof rack guy and you can chase it from there.....

Re: SRT Roof Rack

Thanks JDR8 - those racks are for the Grand Cherokee - not the SRT8 which does not have rails as such. Refer to earlier posts in this thread. The only current solution for the SRT8 not requiring modification is for the feet that wrap around the top of the door and clamp down on the roof / door junction - unless you modify stock "rails" and replace with the grand cherokee rails including drilling holes, filling holes etc.

See Just for Jeeps who have them in stock

Re: SRT Roof Rack

That's odd - I have seen a video of a 2012/2013 SRT8 a reviewer in youtube did, he got the Jeep from Jeep themselves with roof rack because he did a family video where they went skiing.

I'll try and find it, but it was very much factory roof rack, just added on and again - Jeep press vehicle was used.

found it it references the thule
