Roof Rack Needed for 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited For Thule Hullavator  


Hello: First thing I should mention.. I no longer have a truck to throw/haul items in and my wife does not want to use a trailer. So, on-vehicle mounting options are new to me. I just came across your site in researching a rack for my Jeep Grand Cherokee. The trim came with pre-mounted side rails rated at 150lbs. I am looking for either a Yakima or Thule crossbar suitable for 2 kayaks. I prefer to lay kayaks flat, versus vertical, but can be convinced otherwise. I do believe Jeeps Mopar accessories are Thule, but am not sure. I am not sure which would fit best on side rails, look best, and be of the right width crossbar. So, I am relying on personal opinion and recommendation here. I may want 4 Thule Hullavator but not sure if I have the width for 4. I am looking at these for ease of use for my wife and her friend. For me, I can really use anything, but still prefer lay flat installation. I am 64inch tall. My wife and fried are both 56. There is a spoiler on the back of the Jeep and I do have a sunroof/moon roof combo. Only other obstruction is the antenna. Features I want are: 1 Quick detach crossbars from side rails 2 Quick detach accessory mounts i.e., kayak mounts, etc. 3 Ability to use mounts for kayaks and bikes 4 Will add locks , be lockable I see you offer Yakima kits, and I think the HD 60inch kit is what I need, but not sure. I have not yet found the equivalent Thule kit yet if there is one. I am starting to view some of your videos which are a great resource. I am ready to purchase. Thanks,

For your 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee that has the flush roof rails that have the chrome center section for a roof rack the Yakima 55 inch HD bar setup part # Y01156, # Y53TR, # Y03541, and # Y00244 would be a really great option with plenty of capacity and bar space for roof top cargo. Now you'd only be able to fit two of the Hullavators part # TH898 based on how much space they take up and how they fold down etc. This rack can easily detach for the Yakima bars as it would fit into the top channel of the crossbars.

For locks for the Yakima rack you'd want the part # Y07204 for a set of 4 lock cores. Then for the Thule you'd want the part # TH450200 and you'd be set.
