Smile Cross bars

I recently purchased the 2018 jeep compass latitude. Id like to get cross bars but mopar wants $300 for a set of 2!! Since the rails are flush with the roof I haven't had any luck finding some universal ones that will fit, but I'm just going by descriptions. I'd like to find some of the straight ones that hang over the roof some. Has anybody found any aftermarket ones that don't cost $300!

The eBay ones suggested lose about 6 inches of rack space because of the knobs. I have the Mopar ones. Super nice... Probably some after market ones fit but no one has tried them out.

I was looking at the ebay ones too. It's unfortunate you loose some space with that knob. But for only $120 vs $275+ I might go that way. I also miss the old roof rails that were raised. These new flush mount ones seems less useful.

Do these interfere with the panoramic roof operation at all?

I'm not sure where you are located. I have a brand new set of the Mopar roof rack rails in my garage. I have them up for sale on Facebook, but no hits. I do NOT have the box for them...I'd planned on mounting them but I'm soon trading in the Compass. They are new, never mounted, with keys and manual and all the things. I'm in SE Wisconsin.

When are you picking up the Rubicon Recon?
Did you get the Compass back from the body shop yet?

I'll do my best to remember. Note that from the interstate I'm four hours north of Chicago straight line driving.

For what it's worth, I'd let them go for $175 plus shipping. If someone came by my place and picked them up, $150. I paid $251 for them.

I have a question:

I bought this set of crossbars for my compass and just got them. https://www.ebay.com/itm/172851329373?rmvSB=true

On my Compass siderails, there seem to be small little pegs that are inserted into the holes on the side rails. best way to take them out? Flat head screwdriver?

Sucks they dont come with instructions but I guess thats on me for going the cheap route. lol

You've probably figured it out by now, but they can be unscrewed by applying light pressure on the outside edge and rotating counter clockwise. I bought these ALAVENTE cross bars off Amazon and they fit really well.
