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.
ProsEasy, lightweight, aerodynamic
ConsLittle 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.
ProsEasy on and off Easy initial fitting Secure mounting with included locks Stable/Sturdy/Solid/Strong
Consnone so far

Fast shipping. Small dents on the crossbars but not large enough to affect performance or to go through the trouble and expense of returning. Overall very satisfied with price and service.

Thule Removable Roof Rack Cross Rails for 2015 Grand Cherokee Laredo
October 31, 2017
Thule makes a great removable rack kit and Just for Jeeps sells it at a great price. This is a good option for Grand Cherokee's that don't have roof rails. It's not as clean a set up as the factory rails would provide and the racks sit a little more forward than I would like, but overall I think it's the best option available. The kit is relatively easy to install. It took me about 60 minutes. The bulk of that time was spent adjusting the spacing of the bases along the bars. The spacing measurements Thule provides with the kit are inaccurate so it took some trial and error to get it right. Once you get that measurement right the bases are easy to install. I ended up moving the rear bar a little further back than Thule suggests so I could get some extra spacing between the bars. I was able to get 35 inches between the bars which is perfect for my needs. Overall, it's a strong, quality rack and I'm happy with the price I got it for.
ProsQuality Strength Price

Needed a roof rack for my carrier that I already owned and the cost from the dealer with a retail discount was double the price. The manufacturer of the items we purchased is also the same manufacturer for Jeep after products. Was simple to attach and serves its purpose well.

Works well and seems very well made

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.
ProsFit perfectly, look nice and feel solid
ConsCame 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.
ProsGreat looks, easy to install
ConsIf 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?
