Does anyone know of any companies that make aftermarket roof rails - that will most likely make roof rails/racks for the Renegade?

Cheers

Im in the market for some rails too actually. It seems there are quite a few options out there fom Yakima, Thule and Rhino. Yakima seems to be the cheapest option right now, made from steel they are just two round bars that mount and go across.They do look a tad bit cheap. Thule on the otherhand have some really nice looking rails made from aluminum light compared to the rest but there is a price to pay ($399) compared to Yakima ($284)

Directly from the owners manual;

ROOF LUGGAGE RACK — IF EQUIPPED
Your vehicle may be equipped with a Roof Luggage Rack
for transporting accessories.
Crossbars should always be used whenever cargo is
placed on the Roof Luggage Rack. Check the straps
frequently to be sure that the load remains securely
attached.
NOTE: Crossbars can be purchased at a authorized
dealer through Mopar® parts. External racks do not
increase the total load carrying capacity of the vehicle. Be
sure that the total occupant and luggage load inside the
vehicle, plus the load on the Roof Luggage Rack, do not
exceed the maximum vehicle load capacity.
The load carried on the roof, when equipped with a
luggage rack, must not exceed 150 lbs (68 kg), and it
should be uniformly distributed over the cargo area.

Here's a Thule rack that would work. You can get this one with square cross bar or with the aero blades.

I think I'll go with the Thule roof rack for the Renegade. When I get my Renegade I will be taking it on the beach quite a bit and aluminum will last much longer with all the salt spray.

Welcome to all the new forum members. PLEASE LEARN WHAT THE SEARCH BOX IS FOR.

Just yesterday we had yet another thread on this very subject with brands, part numbers and prices.

PLEASE use the SEARCH BOX, it is the magnifying glass symbol in the upper right of the website.

I just ordered the Thule Aeroblade directly from the dealer... it's being sold as a Mopar Accessory. The dealer I went through was able to get them for less than advertised anywhere online so I thought it was a pretty good deal.

Just a heads up for anyone else looking, I prefer Thule crossbars/racks/mounts simply because they are much EASIER to set up and switch carriers on and off. I had Thule load bars and bike carrier on my Volvo and they very minimally affected my fuel economy due to their smoother design vs a previous Yakima set up I'd had. Wind noise was also kept down significantly. You get what you pay for I suppose...

Also decided to go with the Thule bars because I can use my old Volvo bike carrier as a keepsake.

I went with the Thule Aero bars, too. The black set costs extra, but looks nice and I have not noticed any wind noise.
