Cargo box
 
After absorbing the latest threads here on the roof rack cross rails, unless Thule comes out with something in the next week or so, I think I'm going to go with the Mopar product. http://www.justforjeeps.com/rerora.html

But wondering if anyone has tried the Mopar cargo box "designed" for the WK2? http://www.wk2jeeps.com/pdf/2011_wk2_accessories_01.pdf (page 11 in the catalog; page 13 in the PDF) Also considering the Thule 686, which is 3" longer than the Mopar (74" instead of 71"). http://www.thule.com/en/US/Products/...is%201600.aspx

I received some more dimensions from Thule, and it looks like the 686 will fit, but just bend the antenna - by 3"! So still wondering if anyone's tried the Jeep box 82211181, which is exactly 3" shorter than the Thule? (Could they have been thinking that far ahead?!)

Drummer, I think below is the biggest cargo box we've seen thus far.

Suggest either a shorty or sharkfin antenna as well. You should really only be concerned with the liftgate at full open, otherwise, go for the cargo box that suits your needs best.

i'm looking into getting a cargo box as well, but not until mid Feb or early march. I'll start my research soon, but anything you find out in the meantime would be great! :)
