    After much trial and error, I have successfully installed a roof rack on to my JLUR! Thule offers three options on the foot depth. The long 365 (standard size is the 300) works perfectly! I paired it up with the extended Canyon YT basket. As a gutter mount, I think this will get me through the wait for a more permanent solution offered by Garmin, Gobi, etc.

    This is awesome thank you.

    In theory then, if this is an 8" rack height, and a 70 inch basket, would it be safe to say that any 8" height and universal basket with a similar length would do the same?

    I am looking for a more aggressive look on my Rubicon, so a different basket is desired for myself.
    thank you

    Dude, it's loud! LOL. In the past I had a JK with the squared thule bars and it was loud as well. So, I knew it would be. But, the noise is definitely up there.

    Based on what I have determined, I would say that would make sense. I too wanted a different basket, but I found it difficult to find one that long. I really wanted one to cover as much of the top as possible. I may swap it out at some point, but so far so good.

    Dang, may have to suck it up for trips but with kids and long distances it doesn’t sound fun
