Which roof rack and surfboard carrier should I get?
 
I'm having trouble finding the right one.
Does anyone have a good opinion on this?

I have Thule Aero Blades and they work really good and no wind noise.

I have the Mopar ones, which are basically a Thule kit. No noise and was easy enough to install.

Are you saying not to buy Mopar and only Thule?

No, i am not saying to only buy Thule. I have Thule and the quality is what i wanted.
You buy what you can pay for. Is your choice.

Real OEM Mopar crossbars are, in fact, Thule Aero.

OP asked about crossbars for a 2014. I looked at them at the dealer on July 24. The Mopar crossbars are Thule Aero Blades.. See berk483's posting above.

They are not Thule built. He is saying they are like Thule.
