Recommended Items

No Jeep would be complete without a roof rack to load up gear, luggage and sundry paraphernalia for the many excursions you're sure to take in the great outdoors. But if you want a roof rack for those adventures, but also want to remove it for aesthetic reasons when you return to the civilized world, get the Thule Removable Roof Rack available at It attaches, detaches and can be conveniently and easily stored away until the next time you need it. The Thule Removable Roof Rack is compatible with Jeep Grand Cherokee models between 2011 and 2015. Very popular with Grand Cherokee Altitude owners since there are no side rails on those Jeeps.

  • Roof rack crossbars for Laredo and SRT with no production side rails. Will also work with side rails.
  • Includes Thule 60" AeroBlade Bars (ARB60), Thule Rapid Traverse Foot Pack (480R) and Thule Traverse Fit Kit (1656).

Perfect Rack for Grand Cherokee Altitude
August 3, 2015
I bought this rack after doing some research trying to find a rack for my 2015 GC Altitude. With the flush roof rails I was a little disappointed in the options. I wanted something that would be easy to put on and easy to take off if I decided to remove it for road trips that I didn't need it. I only wish it came in black from the factory. I know the aerobars come in black but they are usually a separate item from the retailers that have them and after you piece together the kit you're $150+ more expensive than JustforJeeps. So I bought the silver and painted it black. It was really convenient to have the bars, the pedestals, and the fit kit all together in a package that I knew would work. After two days to paint it and let it dry I was able to put it on by myself in a little over an hour. The pedestal pads are a very soft rubber that would probably not scratch the paint but if any sand or dirt was able to make its way under the foot it would probably scratch. So I used some stick on vinyl to cover the paint and then put the pedestals over that. I've had good luck with this method in the past to ensure that the paint is pristine after the rack is removed. The sizing instructions in the fit kit were easy to follow but I did have to do some tweaking once I got the front bar on to make it fit correctly on both sides. It was probably a result of me not being precise with pedestal placement in the first place. I have full confidence in the fit and that the bars will not move. I plan on hauling kayaks, so there won't be too much weight but I'm confident it will work perfectly. After the initial install I think the rack could be removed in less than 10 minutes and reinstalled just as quickly. Especially using the vinyl as markers and not having to remeasure everything. I did notice when driving with the sun roof open there is a little bit of extra wind noise due to the sun roof wind deflector deflecting the air right into the bottom of the front rail. Not a huge issue but I did notice it.
Easy, lightweight, aerodynamic
Little extra wind noise when the sunroof is open due to wind deflector and crossbar interaction with the air flow. Doesn't come in black.

Sturdy Removable Rack for Jeep SRT
January 28, 2014
Purchased this rack since the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT does not come with roof rails. This rack does the Job! After initial measurements and fitting the rack is a breeze to remove and install thereafter! ( initial fitting is quite easy as well) Rack is extremely Stable/Sturdy/Solid and I think it looks pretty sporty once installed as well.
Easy on and off Easy initial fitting Secure mounting with included locks Stable/Sturdy/Solid/Strong

Works well and seems very well made
July 23, 2014
I purchased this for a 2014 GC Altitude which doesn't have any roof rails. The package(s) arrived without any damage and must be assembled according to the instructions to customize the mounts to fit my vehicle. At first they seemed a little wide but as you tighten them down it fir perfectly with no wind noise. Nice product.
Fit perfectly, look nice and feel solid
Came with lots of parts, however you only have to assemble the first time.

Great Looks !!!
January 20, 2014
Great product from Thule. All in a box with my skirack as well, ontime delivery for my weekend trip to Wyndham mountain. I took about 30 minutes to watch a youtube video and set up indoor, then about 10 minutes or less just to tie them down onto the roof of the car. The instruction sheet was not helpful but if you search and watch a video online, you can do it very easy.
Great looks, easy to install
If you only read the sheets from the box, you will have a hard time to understand it. Maybe a color picture sheet for installation instruction?
