Recommended Roof Rack for 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee High Altitude with Flush Mounted Rails  


I just purchased a 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee High Altitude. It has the factory installed roof rails that are for show only, The dealer told me I have to buy clamp on racks such as the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Roof Rack by Yakima. It also has a panoramic sunroof. I watched the video and it seems like the Yakima would work, but would you recommend it or another roof rack? Thanks

The Yakima Roof Rack Kit for a 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee that uses parts # Y00426, # Y28TR and # Y06121 is a great choice and I don't think you can ever go wrong with Yakima products; they're durable and easy to install. The Baseline Towers # Y28TR and landing pads # Y06121 will clamp onto your flush mounted rails easily, like the dealer mentioned. This rack has 60" Jetstream bars that are aerodynamic and will provide you with a ton of useable bar space, so it's just a great all around roof rack. This is compatible with a panoramic moon roof, but you may not have full operation of the moon roof when it's installed-which is fairly common with flush mounted rails and roof racks because of the lack of clearance. If your moon roof retracts into the roof panel, it won't be an issue but if it opens back onto the roof you're likely going to need to remove the roof rack when it's not in use to use that function.

I've linked a review video of this rack that you can check out if you haven't already.
