Roof rack options

Has anyone come across good roof rack options for the Cherokee? Thule and Yakima do not have AeroBlade or Whispbar options available for the Cherokee yet per their websites.

There are multiple people running the Aerobars on their Cherokees, few different threads on racks/rails/etc too. Thule definitely lists the crossbars for the Cherokee on their website.

Thule Aero

Just FYI, I'd shop around for those Aero Bars. I was just looking myself and saw amazon was listing them a bit cheaper.

Thule lists the Aerobars. but i dont care for the look/fit of the thule.. the strap style attachment looks cheap to me. I've done some research and think i've found the proper Yakima Whispbar Railbar kit to fit. Ordered them yesterday and will let yall know what happens.

cool, i like the looks of the whispbar better too, though i think the thule attachment method seems more secure. what width did you chose?

I ordered the AeroBlade 7502 from AutoAnything. Great price, but shipping has been delayed 10 days from their original estimate.

Life is good. Very good.

I found a pdf with the measurements of the inside and adjustable rtanges of each kit. I dont have it with me right now, but i went with the s53 whispbar kit.

should arrive friday, as well as my yellow fog lamp bulbs (still not sure if i want them or not, but have to install and see what they look like...

I'll get pics up and details as soon as i get them put on
