Went with the Thule Rapid Traverse Foot Pack and Whispbar ski rack. Wind noise is minimal unless sunroof is open

Any pics you can post from close up? Looks like it mounts in the door frame?

It's coated so the paint is safe.

About to order the same setup. I'm assuming it is OK and smart to mount the ski rack portion off center???

It's a great system, you'll like it. Yes, the shop actually recommended it. I usually have my centered, but it's way easier this way. No rubbing against the rig to get your gear off.

I have the same system and love it. Just like previously stated the wind noise is minimal.

The kit comes with very detailed measurements as to where to mount the foot mounts. I followed the placement specifications exactly and had no issues with it. At times I was transporting two 12 foot paddle boards and it was as solid as any rack system I have ever used.

Thanks for the follow up. Order placed through just for jeeps!
