Good quality, and look better than I thought. Hard to figure out though.
January 18, 2015
I wasn't sure if I was going to like the looks of the rack on top of my '14 JGC. My original intent was to put on the rack only when needed and leave it in the garage the rest of the time.
The short answer is, that's not practical. It takes quite a bit of effort to install, especially the rubber strip across the top and once that's in, you can't remove the rack without taking it back out.
The best way I found to install the strip was to coat everything in soapy water and just slide the strip in from the end. That seemed easier than laying across the top of the vehicle and pushing the strip in brute-force. I was installing this in the winter, so the rubber was stiff enough that I could push it in from one side - if you were installing in a warmer climate, it may not work to push.
Now that it's up there, the looks of them are starting to grow on me. I haven't actually used them yet, but they're a good, solid install that I don't anticipate any problems (other than that stupid antenna being right in the way).
Pros:Solid, quality components.
Cons:Instructions were confusing, and the rubber strip is hard to get in correctly.
