    I used Harbor Freight ones mainly to see if I liked it. I may shorten the crossbars a little

    Just for curiosity, I’ve been keeping track of fuel mileage for those that want to know. About a 2 mpg drop with same driving habits. Changing the way I drive actually bumped it to more than I was getting without the rack. I have a 108 mile commute each day on interstate 90% of the time. I usually just set cruise control and go. Without cruise, it improved quite a bit. This is in Tennessee where the roads aren’t quite so level also.

    EAB37387-D40E-4845-A2C1-D58E304FCAEB.jpeg Added some mud flaps. May be just a bit much with Jeep logos so I ordered some Rally Armor ones. Rack is currently off. Gonna paint the crossbars black as soon as the weather cooperates.

    Side note, I changed thermostat and plugs this last weekend (83,000 miles). Runs a lot smoother now

    15581090-D846-4D48-9FB3-37F2357EE717.jpeg Went to Nemo Tunnel in Wartburg, TN. Unfortunately couldn’t go all the way though due to one of my passengers panicking. Will be back later. Maybe a snorkel in the future

    Cool setup!! Could you share the product info for the roof light bar? Debating whether to mount mine to the rack or get a mounting bracket like you have.

    Just a screenshot of the ones I purchased off ebay. Cheap enough to drill a couple holes in and easy to pop off for changing a bulb or cleaning. I think I paid around $65
