Roof Rack Recommendation for 2022 Jeep Wrangler 4xe with Sky One-Touch Top

Question:

Hello- we just got a new rubicon Jeep 4xe and are looking to get bars or a roof tack. Thule seems to have some that would work but I was wondering what recommendations you can give? We do have the sky one touch top so that seems to be a problem for some options. Also had a question about the Thule setup that seems to work. Cross bars say they hold over 200 pounds but the Thule 8 inch feet say Maximum tower load capacity: 165 lbs inch so what does that number mean? Am I having to stay under the 165 pounds or could that be per foot or something?

Thank you for all of the info!

I recommend using the Thule WingBar Evo roof rack on your 2022 Jeep Wrangler 4xe because it's arguably the easiest to install and has a dual rubber insert for the top channel so it's a breeze to install an accessory in the t-slot. Here are the parts you'll need:

60" WingBar Evo Crossbars - # TH711520
Rapid Gutter Feet - # TH33ZR
Lock Core Kit - # TH450400 (optional)

The weight ratings you mentioned are for the individual components. If you look through our fitguide you'll actually see that all of the roof racks have a weight rating of 100 lbs which is even lower than the ratings you mentioned. This is due to the manufacturers finding that the Jeep itself wasn't safe to load over 100 lbs so your Jeep will be the limiting factor here.

Attached is an installation video of this system on a 2020 Wrangler Unlimited for you to check out.
