What Roof Rack Fits Both My 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee and 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee L?


What size rack bars are needed to fit both a 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee and a 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee L. Can one set of racks fit both for this XXL size roof box? Thank you!


Expert Reply:

According to my research, your 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee L has flush factory rails. As far as your 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee, there are a few different factory roof options for that vehicle. Unfortunately, with all different possible roof setups, I confirmed with our roof rack manufacturers that there are no traditional roof rack systems that fit both of your vehicles.

However, as a great alternative solution, I recommend the SeaSucker Monkey Bars # 298-SX6000B. The Monkey Bars are a great choice because they come with an impressive 150-pound weight capacity. In addition, the installation process of the Monkey Bars is the easiest and fastest out of any roof rack system we carry here at etrailer. To add theft-deterrence measures to the Monkey Bars, I recommend the etrailer Cable Lock # e98891 along with the SeaSucker Window-Mounted Cable Anchor # 298-BA0010.

As far as mounting a XXL-sized roof box on your vehicles, according to the stats I have available, it should not be an issue on both vehicles. This is because the Monkey Bars can be positioned far forward on your vehicles' roofs. If you are looking for a great XXL option, I recommend the Thule Force XT XXL Rooftop Cargo Box - 22 cu ft - Black AeroSkin # TH6359B. The Thule Force XT XXL will attach to the Monkey Bars with the mounting clamps. One way to know for sure to know if you have enough roof length is by measuring from the front-most point of your roof (where the roof meets the front windshield) to the line where the roof and hatch meet. If that distance exceeds 54-3/4 inches, you will be able to mount the Force XT XXL and fully open the rear hatch of your vehicles.
