Roof rack whistle

On the subject of roof racks,
Has anybody found a solution to the whistling heard from the front bar when it is over the open sunroof.
Needs a faring of some sort like Thule offers, MOPAR is not that versed racks.

I caved and paid the 200 :eek:
Well they are over 300 here. Hell might freeze over first. I got a small trailer and fixed it up, bearings, 2" ball coupler and wiring pigtail for the lights. Its around 200lbs 6.5ftx6.5ft used to be tent trailer box. I will put new light on it in the fall but its road worthy now and well under the cost of a roof rack cross arms.

Airdam - damn!

Good on you .. . in 2007 Thule had yet to offer the mounts . . . I would have stayed with Thule 100% - having already a bunch of Thule accessories.
Damn.
Would love to see a picture of the set up.

There site has nothing for new models. I checked for 09 out of curiosity. They appear to be pricey anyway.

Just an FYI, but a member over at another Jeep forum has a set of OEM Sport/Utility Bars for about $200 shipped (he quoted me shipping from Virginia to Illinois). I was hoping to get them for dirt cheap, but no go :). If anyone is interested I'll PM you the details on where/who it is.

I'm interested. I live in Washington DC so if he's in Northern VA I might be able to skip on the shipping.

Moving the roof bars

Anybody using the Compass roof-rack bars figure out how to easily remove and reinstall them?
Seems it takes me for ever with endless fussing each time I try and move them.
Very frustrating.

Ask a thief.

I haven't got a set. Way overpriced rails. Other Chrysler come with them but not Jeeps.

Does any know if these hard to remove rails(as stated by i2canoe, haha) for the Compass are the same as the Patroit. The rail looks the same but I am not sure of the spread side to side. Mopar does not offer part # in there option catalog.
