    Hey Toecutter, could you tell me what brand and model is the cargo box on your roof? I'm looking for one and I think yours looks awsome.
    Thanks!

    Thanks for the quick reply.

    I've owned Yakima before and prefer their products to Thule, and I really like the Whispbars but the clearance issue may be enough to push me to the Thule bars.

    By the way, your Cherokee looks great.

    The S53 Whispbars are very low profile so there's not much clearance between the bars and the roof of the vehicle. They do not touch the sheetmetal but it makes me nervous anyways. The clamps for the box have <1cm clearance. If I were to do it again I'd order Thule bars, which appear to rise up higher than the Yakima bars.

    It's the S53 Whispbar and SkyBox LoPro: http://www.yakima.com/shop/cargo/car...s/skybox-lopro

    WARNING: With the stock mounting points the lift gate WILL collide with the SkyBox when you open it.

    I gave myself a bit of a scare the first time I opened the hatch as it rammed into the tail of the box. I thought I surely had damaged something. I modified the box my drilling out the slots through which the crossbar clamps slide fore/aft so the box sits further forward that it can as it came from the factory.

    I don't have the sunroof. I knew I'd have the box up there so I didn't bother ordering the sunroof just to cover it up.

    One thing I didn't expect was how difficult it is to keep the lid of the box open when it's covered with snow. The extra weight makes the lid want to fall closed, and you'd have to be really tall to reach to the top of the box to brush off the snow accumulation.

    Toecutter,

    Just saw the pics of your new tires. But what caught my attention was the rack and Yakima box?

    Are you running the whispbar and the Yakima Skybox Pro 16?

    Are you happy with it and do you have the sunroof? If so how does it fit with the sunroof?

    Anything you'd do differently you can think of?

    I think I've reviewed every rack thread here but I don't remember seeing your setup mentioned.

    Thanks.
