2018 Compass Roof Rack (for Kayak)

I leased an '18 Compass 5 months ago and with spring and summer approaching I would like to add a roof rack and kayack rack to it. My dealer wants like $600 (may or may not include labor) to install the carrier and kayak rack. I think that may be too much at this point, because when I give the car back Ill be keeping the roof rack and possibly offloading it to someone else. (maybe ill keep the jeep)

Im just looking for some guidance as I have almost no idea what Im looking for, or what I actually need.

I saw this on ebay: (pretty cheap compared to MOPAR, almost $200 less)
https://www.ebay.com/itm/For-Newest-...lak4pN&vxp=mtr

Would this work as a roof rack for me? If so, once I get that installed, can I use ANY kayak rack on the market or does that also have to be specifically for the jeep compass? i.e. https://mopar.chromedata.com/NextGen...0686/279805695

It seems like there isnt much available yet for the Compass, which makes sense. Am I on the right track?

Thanks!
