2011 Compatible Roof Rail Systems?

Hello,

Was curious if anyone has found any aftermarket roof rack cross bar systems for the 2011 Jeep Compass? (ie Yakima or Thule) If so, what are the part numbers for the components? I am having a very hard time finding a system which has been approved for the 2011 and having an upcoming kayaking trip I need roof rails soon!

Thanks for any help!

I'm not sure if there are aftermarket options available just yet - have you spoken with your dealer yet? I presume there will be a MOPAR rack available very soon. The accessories are likely being previewed at MOAB over the Easter weekend.

Anyone find any roof cross bars for the 2011 yet? My wife is moving from a Chrysler Town & Country Lsi minivan to the Jeep Compass Latitude and is used to carrying lots of Shiite when traveling.

All of the roof top carriers I see on the Net for the Compass just sit on the top of the roof. I don't much like this. Especially with a Sunroof.

I found a Mopar manufactured roof rack I just ordered from their site. It's around $250 but specifically made for the 2011 Compass. Just make sure you get the one for the 2011 and not 2010. I haven't received mine yet...just ordered it yesterday.

With much searching I have found several sites selling

"Jeep Compass Sport Utility Bars (2007-2010)" Part no. 82209622

as also fitting the 2011 model. I'll compare the installation instructions on the site with the actual vehicle tomorrow morning and see if it looks right. I found a set for $213 if they work. I'll also call the dealer and they will probably call all the other dealers in the state to find out.

Thanks
Don

$500? I thought the $250 was a set of 2 bars? Why would they sell just 1?

Roof Racks eh, Platform!!!

This has been my solution and adapted for the Compass Hitch I have. I have used this platform for hauling rocks, Up to 5 suitcases full from Montreal, Gasoline, cargo carrier etc.

No wind drag and easy access are the main benefits.

Hey everyone. Do you know if the 2011 compass roof rails have the same specs as previous years? I'm looking to buy some cross bars - will the '07-'10 cross bars fit on my 2011? I searched for hours and couldn't find any answers. This site is awesome.

So are the crossbars year specific? I found a site selling them for the '07-'10 compass. Would these work on the 2011 or are the rails on the 2011 different?

Has anyone put Thule accessories on the 2011 Compass Mopar crossbars? I am wondering how they fit? Also, what size fairing fits best? The 2010's specify a 38" so I assume that is the correct size. Would someone mind measuring out the length of the bars? I can't find that published anywhere! Sorry for all the questions and thanks in advance!

Cheers!

I'm not keen on the overhang on the usual crossbars, but I found the Yakima Whispbar Flush, which looks brilliant - I emailed Yakima to ask if they have (or are bringing out) compatible fittings - so far they don't fit the 2011 Compass, but they said to check regularly every few weeks to see if some are produced... I guess having a 2012MY could help increase demand for them


Yakima › Shop › All › Whispbar Flush

I also found that RackAttack did a custom fit of these bars to a Grand Cherokee, which looks good but I don't fancy having the factory rails removed to do it...!

Hi everyone, I installed my MOPAR crossbars this weekend and I am happy to report that they are Thule Rapid Aero Load bars. I am not sure if they are actual Thule parts, but they are the identical shape, size and color. If your are shopping for roof rack toys, this information will be helpful.

Cheers!

I got the Mopar ones. I love them. My buddy works for the dealership, so he hooked me up for free!

If the compass roof rack 2011 in previous years, the same size? I bought some of the cross bar - '07 - '10 cross-bar for my 2011? I searched for a few hours, could not find any answers.

The body style is completely different so I would assume they are different. Besides, the part numbers for the bars are different so that tells the tale as well.

Cheers!

Mopar Removable?

I know they say the Mopar racks are removable- does just the bar slide off and the mounting brackets stay, or do you have to unscrew to remove?
