Base model Laredo roof rails
Just a noob question... Are the roof rails the same across all the WK2 models?? I am thinking about getting a roof rack and just a tad bit confused.

Re: Base model Laredo roof rails
No, there are two types. The base model and some variants may be just decorative black plastic strips, where the chrome rails are metal and are designed to take roof rails or other accessories. The steel rails can be installed but is a PITA task with plenty of opportunity to poke holes in the side air bags..

The metal rails are on the Laredo "E" package and up. I have the base model Laredo and the rails on mine look like the ones on the SRT 8.

Re: Base model Laredo roof rails
the super base laredo only has the black plastic rails which I hardly ever see. Every single laredo on my dealer's lot had the chrome rails like the limited/overland.
