Video Transcript for Yakima Roof Rack Review - 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Speaker 1: Today on our 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee, we're gonna be test fitting the Yakima RoundBar roof rack system, consisting of part numbers Y00408, these are the round 48 inch crossbars, part number Y00148, these are the skyline towers for the Yakima crossbars for fixed mounting parts, part number Y003536, which is the RoundBar SL adapter for the Yakima baseline, skyline, timberline towers, and finally part number Y00244. This is the landing pad kit to fit specifically on your Jeep Grand Cherokee.The Yakima RoundBar roof rack system is great for carrying a wide variety of accessories on your roof while freeing up space inside your vehicle. This can carry anything from bike racks to cargo baskets to cargo boxes. With the RoundBars, you may experience some noise while you drive, but Yakima does offer fairings, which you can find on etrailer.com to cut down that wind noise and drag as well. Also with our end caps here, we do have plastic knockouts that can be removed and replaced with the Yakima SKS lock systems, which are sold separately. So, you can actually secure this to your roof, but you can also make it keyed alike with the accessories that you're hauling as well.It's also very easy to use.

You open up the door like so, and then you can lift it up out of place. When you're not using it, it does have these caps which you can put into place, so you don't have to remove them and they're ready for next time.Next, I'd like to give you a couple quick measurements. From the center of the roof to the bottom of our bar is gonna measure about three and seven eighths inches. From the center of the roof to the top is gonna be about five inches, so there's plenty of space for your accessories in between where you won't make contact with your roof. Now, since this does have a sunroof, you may be limited a little bit while the roof rack is installed.Also, both of our bars have a combined carrying capacity of 165 pounds, but you always want to double check with your owner's manual to make sure your roof can withstand those weights.Now that we've gone over some of the features of the roof rack system, let's go ahead and show you how it installs.

We have our front bar already installed on our roof rack system, and we have our rear bar partially assembled on the table here. Here we have our tower, the RoundBar adapter kit, and of course the landing pad, which fits inside our flush mount rail, and we'll get to that a little bit later.We'll first start off by attaching our adapter kit to our tower. We'll start by taking our plastic adapter piece here and just popping that into the top of our tower. Then we'll take our RoundBar, insert that into the center here, and go underneath and take our included tool and tighten it down. You don't want to tighten down all the way because next we're gonna slide this end to the other end of our bar.

It simply slides into place. Then we can finish tightening that bolt the rest of the way. What's good about this tightening tool is it does have a torquing feature. We're gonna hear those audible clicks, so now you know it's tightened down to its max capacity.So, next we'll remove the screw at the top here where we'll place our landing pad, and it does come with an included tool to do this. Remove the screw completely and set it aside to a place where you know where it's at, so when you're done using the roof rack, you can put it back in place.Next, we'll take our first part of our landing pad, we'll place it over the hole where the screw is that we just took out.

Then we'll take our second piece and set that on top like so. Then we'll take one of our screws, a lock washer and a flat washer, put it through the center, line up the holes, and take the included Allen tool and tighten it down. We already repeated this for the other side, and tighten it down until it's nice and tight, not gonna move, and now we can grab our bar.So, we'll take our bar and our towers, line them up, making sure they're in the open position, and set them in our landing pads. We'll do this to the other side, and then we'll measure for our crossbar overhang and make sure it's even as well. Once that's even, we'll tighten down the screw in the center here, so lock up our towers to our bar. Again, you're gonna want to do this until you hear those clicks. Once that's door, you push the door closed here, and now it's locked in to our landing pad. We'll do this on our driver's side as well.There you have it for the Yakima RoundBar roof rack system on our 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee.

2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee

These towers (Y00148) and the Landing Pads (Y00244) are needed to mount the cross-bars on my 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The Jeep has flush rails, with an open channel along the top.

They are very heavy duty, typical of Yakima stuff.

Worked great.

One year and working great. Super solid product. Costly, but well worth the money. Will last forever.

2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee

I bought a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee. To use my Yakima Skyline Towers, I had to install these landing pads in the rack rail attached to the roof. The installation was easy, and the pads serve their purpose. But they don't seem to be engineered as secure as I would like. They have more flexibility than I think they should. The bolt head is over an inch from where it screws into the roof. I think Yakima could have engineered something more secure. In fairness to Yakima, the Jeep rack rail is different than any other rack system I've seen and is incompatible with any other system. But I am assuming that these landing pads will work OK with a full load and that the Yakima engineers have done an adequate job. This summer they will be put to the test for 3,000 miles. Note: the Yakima windshield fairing falls on the glass in the moon roof rendering the moon roof unopenable so long as the fairing is used.

Easy to install. Not impressed with the fit though. The biggest selling point is being able to remove the towers and leave the pad though. Overall happy with the purchase.

Working very in my Jeep Grand Cherokee 2020. They used for the cross bar to support my roof top tent




by:

The rack looks to be excellent. The assembly is a nightmare. The instructions are terrible. The design for assembly is flawed. There is a stupid cover over the main bolt that you have to tighten. There is a video on Yakima’s website that kind of tells you how to get around it but not really. A 30 minute job took two hours.

Great design for a roof rack system.easy to put on and take off. Use it to carry 9-11 foot surf fishing rods. Takes two minutes to put on when I am ready to go fishing.

Not only did etrailer have a necessary component to my new Yakima rack system that no other retailer had in stock, their price was fair and they shipped quickly. Thanks etrailer!

The pads and rack have been the usual totally solid Yakima quality. Once I got the pads lined up it is easy on and off for the rack itself. I have absolutely no regrets and nothing but appreciation for a good design.

  • Yakima Roof Rack Recommendation for 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee With Group E Rails
    Thank you for the pictures of the rails of your 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee. What you have is the Group E rails so the Yakima Aero bar roof rack you would need is the # Y00425, # Y53TR, and # Y00244.

  • Yakima Roof Rack for 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee with Flush Rails
    Since your 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland has the chrome rails with the slots on its roof it means you have the E Group package. So yes, the Yakima Jetstream roof rack does fit your Jeep. The parts you need are: 50 inch JetStream Crossbars # Y00425 SkyLine Towers # Y53TR Landing Pad # Y00244 Check out the attached video.

  • How Does Yakima Roof Rack Install on 2018 Grand Cherokee Trailhawk with E-Group Rails
    We installed the Yakima JetStream Roof Rack part numbers # Y00425, # Y53TR, and # Y00244 on a 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee similar to your Trailhawk and we video recorded the process. If you fast-forward to the 3:09 mark of the video I attached you'll see how we intalled the kit and how it went. The forward and rearword most screws are to be used like you mentioned. Jeep may have a Mopar rack that installs differently on the rails, but the way Yakima recommends this rack install is the only...

  • Thule Roof Rack for 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo for Carrying Thule Mountaineer Box
    For your 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo we have current roof racks that will work great with your Mountaineer but the square bars you have now are no longer supported by Thule so you'd have to go with their newer style that have a slot on the underside of them. So you'd want the part numbers # Y00425, # Y53TR, and # Y00244 for an aero style rack that will be much quieter from Yakima.

  • Comparing Steel and Aluminium Crossbars for a 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee with Flush Tracks
    In regards to choosing between steel and aluminium crossbars, I recommend aluminium because they will be lighter and offer better protection from the elements. The steel crossbars do have higher weight capacities but this would not be a factor as you will be limited by the mounting feet anyway. For a 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee, the Yakima JetStream Crossbar System part # Y00425, part # Y53TR, and part # Y00244 is what I recommend for models with black and chrome tracks or matte black and...

    You are correct that the rails on your 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee are the Group E package, which are black and chrome, and there is a great option from Yakima. The best roof rack for your '19 Grand Cherokee with the Group E package from Yakima will utilize the JetStream crossbars which will give your car a roof rack that is highly effective and quiet with a distinguished look.

  • Yakima Round Bar Roof Rack for 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee with E Group Package
    In order to install round Yakima crossbars like the 48" # Y00408 on your 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee with the E Group Package you will need the SkyLine Towers # Y53TR, the RoundBar SL Adapter # Y03536, and the Landing Pad 18 # Y00244 (which is what will actually mount to the fixed point on those factory rails. This will provide you with a complete round bar roof rack system for your Jeep. I have attached an installation video that you can use for reference.

  • Recommended Roof Rack and Rooftop Tent for a 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee
    In order to install a rooftop tent on a 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee you'll first need to start with a roof rack, the Yakima CoreBar Crossbar System part # Y00421, part # Y53TR, and part # Y00244 is a great option for models with black and chrome flush side rails. This can then be used to attach a rooftop tent such as the Yakima SkyRise HD Tent for Roof Rack Crossbars part # Y07436 which is what I recommend.

  • 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk Platform Style Roof Rack
    There may be slight differences between the 2020 and 2021 Grand Cherokee, but not much. If you're wanting to get a platform on your 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee I do have one that is confirmed to fit. All You need is to get the Yakima LockNLoad Platform # Y05044, SkyLine Towers # Y53TR, SL Adapter # Y05042-2 and these Landing Pad 18 # Y00244. This is just like the rhino rack platform. It will install similar to the rack that I put on this 2019 Cherokee so check that out!

  • Platform Tray/Roof Rack that Fits 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk
    For your 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee we don't have a Rhino Rack Pioneer platform that fits your roof rails directly but we have the very similar Yakima LockNLoad Platform Tray setup part numbers # Y05044, # Y53TR, # Y05042-2, and # Y00244 which does fit your rail setup directly. This tray is 55 inch by 49 inch. We can't recommend opening your roof with this installed though as it might interfere but also it's going to cause quite a bit of wind noise.

The JetStream and CoreBar are very similar with a 165 lb capacity and aerodynamic design to cut down on wind noise. However, The JetStream bars offer the T-slot for accessories with a rubber weather strip that does not require trimming like it did in the past. I highly recommend using the JetStream bars with the T-Slot and getting the Yakima FatCat Ski...

If you wanted a longer crossbar we have the Yakima roof rack part numbers # Y00425, # Y53TR, and # Y00244 which will give you a 50 inch long crossbar roof rack.

This should get you about 5 inches of clearance from your panoramic roof to the bottom of the platform. This is what I recommend and will be great for hauling your lumber and gear.

For installation you will also need Landing Pad 18, # Y00244. There are 3 bar styles you can use with this roof rack. The SkyLine feet come with components to attach the Corebars # Y00422 or the Jetstream bars # Y00426. You can also use round bars # Y00409 but will need adapter # Y03536, sold separately.

    I'm fairly sure the Summit model of the 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee comes has the E-Group package which means you have flush rails on the Jeep's roof that have a chrome strip along them. If I'm right I recommend the Yakima roof rack system with the JetStream Crossbars, part # Y00425, the SkyLine towers, part # Y53TR, and Landing Pad # Y00244. This will give you a good rack for your Hobie kayaks. Then to carry the kayaks we have the JayLow, part # Y04073, which can carry both of them. You...

    For carrying ladders the Yakima HD bars are a really great option as they have a higher weight capacity and a more rugged design while still being aerodynamic. For that there are a few options based on the roof style of your vehicle. If you have a totally naked roof or have black matte flush rails you'd need the part numbers # Y01157, # Y28TR, # Y03541, and # Y06121. Or if you have black and chrome rails you'd want # Y01156, # Y53TR, # Y03541, and # Y00244.
