Let's see em!

Thinking about investing in some gutter mounted crossbars, leaning towards the Rhino but interested to know what else is on the market.

I like them at this angle, only reservation is that they look from other pics that they flair out quite a bit, overall do you think the fit and finish looks good from the back/front?

Nice prowler 13. My favorite fishing kayak.

Do you have no issues carrying on the roof with those? I know it is only about 55lbs but the lifting force it creates could be dangerous to the mount.

Do you have any reservations putting the front part of the rack on the freedom panels?

Good eye, it's a great kayak. I had no issues at all - very stable. It's also tied down at the bow and stern of course. Drove 5 hours each way to Mexico. This kayak is supposedly 75lbs. Weight rating of the racks is supposed to be 88 lbs. I believe.
Caught a ton of fish too.

They look great on the Jeep. Wish I had a better picture but here's one more from the front:

Thule racks here; work great, easy to mount & dismount.

Mopar cross bars. I’ve been happy with them. We carry 2 Pelican SUP boards.
If anyone has any recommendations on paddle carriers I would appreciate it. I liked the function of the Malone carriers but I broke both straps the first use. How are you guys carrying your paddles?

Do these lock in some way? Look like quick release which would equal a quick theft in my area.

I wasn’t a fan of the Mopar ones at first but they’re growing on me now. Looks good!
