Re: 2012 Laredo with Steelcraft Nerf Bars

Thanks, those look good. Lower than I would have expected (by just a little) but that may help the kids hoist themselves in. Clearance isn't a big concern as serious off-roading is not on this...

Re: Need opinions on which setup. Chrome or painted? Pics of both inside!

Try this thread for noise. I had no problems with the Mopar racks (keep them on all the time). I get noise when I put my old Thule 924 ski racks on (wind turbulence on the roof) but with skis on it...

Re: mud flaps on GC ?

Double-concur with Rage; PITA regardless. I ended up taking the tires off which helped, but still need to be a contortionist. The instructions blow too. I had screws where it said there was a...

Re: Wind noise with Thule and Yakima Ski Racks

Re: How much are you paying at the pump to fill up?

I have been running the tank pretty low so in the $70's. Last time was $79 @ $3.59/gal. I have had some gas pump shock, but it is attributed to the larger gas tank. I had a 2000 JGC previously...

Re: Roof rack cross bar wind noise

Glad it was an easy fix :thumbsup: Although frustrating in the interim.

I'll report back after this weekend how it is with a set of Thule 724 (older model) ski racks installed.

Re: WeatherTech Floor Liners

I went with the Jeep slush mats. Light Frost leather; beige carpet but the black mats look sharp and good for the New England winters. Much cheaper than the Husky or Weathertech's. So far no issues.
