Thule Cross Bars for my 08 Commander
After a lot of hand wringing, I decided to go with Thule Cross Bars for my 08. Foot kit (#460) and the square bars. I am waiting for a Fit Kit to come in. This is needed to attach the Foot to the side rails. I like the look (square, like my Commander) and the weight rating is excellent. 150lbs plus. They will lock and I can fit the many different Thule and Yakima accessories for the toys.
I am going with a 58" crossbar which protrudes just a bit from the side rails. I want to go with a Fairing also to cut down on the wind noise.
While I wait for the part to come in, if anyone has experience good or bad with Thule cross bars on the Jeep then please share.
I use Thule on two other trailers, one cargo and one for a Kayak trailer and I use bars on a Honda also so I know they are great.
I will post some pics when the parts are in and I install them.
