Can anyone recommend good roof racks for the 4xe? I have seen several on Amazon but weight limit of 88lbs is not enough. I’ll be adding a cargo basket and watertight bag for trips so need something that can support 150lbs or more.

The Gobi rack in another thread takes 300 lbs while in motion, 800 lbs static load.

So I went with these that were on sale on Black Friday for $136. I have seen the Mopar brand up closes and that’s look almost exactly the same. Rated at 180lbs but I don’t think I would test them above 150.

Easy to install, took me about 30 min by myself, I think they look pretty good.

How's the window noise with these on? I see a review saying it whistles over 50 MPH. I know they won't be quite. But, is there a whistle to them?

Why would you not trust the person that said there is a whistle to them? I would bet they are not making that up.
Is there something wrong with me asking if this person that has them has a whistle issue? Many different variables could come to play. With my previous SUV I had Thule AeroBlades and had a whistle I couldn't get rid of. But, others didn't have this problem.

Nothing wrong. It’s just… who do you believe??

P.S. - am I the only one turned off to manufacturers slapping their name/logo all over their accessories? This rack says "Gobi" on almost every piece. :rolleyes:
You are not. Car, clothing, anything I'd rather not have advertising built in to the product.
