I looked at this before buying my 09 as the spouse liked a vehicle with roof rails and the vehicle I liked didnt have them. We compromised (we got what she wanted).... but anyway The side rails have a MSRP of 165 several online jeep OEM parts outlets discount them to like 140 or so. You can download the install instructions at the jeep web site accessories to see what it takes to install them. I recall
Rocky Road Outfitters has the KK roof rails for 179. They are made of steel and not plastic. jeep liberty roof rails

help me take a vote. I am debating between the factory style roof rails or the rocky road rails with adventure rack. After crossbars they are the same price. I have the steelcraft grill guard right now in black so i think the rocky road rails would match nicely and probably are stronger then the factory style. What do you guys think httpwww.steelcraftautomotive.com...ges75image.jpg

Are they any good Are they better than the 235 65 R17 Goodyear Wrangler HPs that Came with my jeep Will they fit without cutting back that
just get some Yakima cross rails. 150-175 dollars total package. (2 rails)
My liberty did not have a roof rack on it. I did not want the jeep rack becaus it did not have the cross rails. Went to an aftermarket place...300 installed.
Yeah there are no cross rails.. Very noticable mistake.. (or a strategy..)

i am in Houston texas and as to why......... I want to purchase the roof basket for the liberty. However it does not fit the renagade roof rails because they are too wide (about 50% biger than the normal rails) so instead of having to buy new smaller rails at 128 a peice and since mine are prety much brand new i wanted to see if any one wanted to trade. I am in Houston where are you so we can see about how to do the trade.

i decided to email a few local dealerships here is what one said According to my new accessory book the part number that you inquired about will not fit the 2005 renegade. number 82208306. The number that you need for the renegade is 82209125 and it sells for 339.00 plus tax. The accessory book also calls for a mounting hardware kit which is part number 82209480 and is 9.00 plus tax. The kit contains 8 long machine screws to fit part number 82209125 to the renegades side rails. I hope this is helpful to you and this information just came to me in the last week in the form of a new accessory book. Thanks for your inquiry and hope this helped Mark Brown parts manager. i am really getting tired of getting two different answers..there has to be someone out there with the 04 rack on an 05. I am not sure what rack they are even refering to anyways for the 05 i didnt see it on the jeep website.
There arent any other allen or torx bit heads except for one at each end of the rail. Those come out but dont do anything to help the rails come off (at least not that I can tell). Here is what the rails look like. It is a crappy small pic but it gives you a better idea of exactly what I am talking about. httpz.about.comdtrucks100H...r_lightbar.jpg Yeah I thought about doing my rims but I think I can get cheaper steelies than the cost to have the rhino lining done. I have thought about sanding the rims and having them powder coated to match my fenders and bumper though but again the steelies are cheaper. I like my stock wheels but I am pretty sure I can sell my old tires and wheels to pay for the new steelies and have a little extra to go towards the incoming 2657516 Cepek Mud ry FCs. Te jeep is a liberty Renegade by the way I think I forgot to mention the liberty part.
I agree about adding an aftermarket rack. I am a Thule fan but the Yakima racks are also equally good. I just added a Thule Crossroad450LB50 combination to the 05 liberty I just bought for my daugther. I have the same rack on my 05 Grand Cherokee except with LB58 bars. We also have Thule racks on our 99 Grand Cherokee but I cannot remember the model. This lets us share accessories across all 3 jeeps
I also have a Thule system. Its even black. I use the crossbars on the liberty to carry say a large table then put them on my truck lumber rack with kayak adapters. It also has a carry-all basket bike mount -- just about anything you want. Very versatile system If you want to save a few bucks you can get them for a relatively reasonaable price used in your local newspaper Penny Saver etc.

a 05 liberty I think the best Thule setup is the Crossroad 450 brackets and the LB50 bars. I think the other years are the same as an 05. I bought mine from rackattack too... and they are very knowlegeable. www.thule.com has an online fit guide that you can check to be sure. Jim Thanks Jim...Today Ill have the dealer send the brushed aluminum back...I dont have crome or stuff that is shiny on my jeep.
You could also clamp two 2x4s together with a bolt between them and sandwich the roof rail between the two. Make up two of them and you have a ladder holder that can be screwed into etc.

The idea is really not that bad. Ive run up against the same question and now I have an idea how I could even make it look decent. No 2x4s though. I always thought wood on cars was a bad idea (ok flame me all you woody owners) Shouldnt be too hard though to get a hold of some 12 hollow square metal beams (probbly even home depot for that) and then u-bolt em on there. Give em a nice coat of paint to
If you already have the ladder (or are borrowing it) I like the use four 2x4s its quick and easy. If you are buying a ladder that you dont already have check out this its definitely worth the money. (and no I dont work for the company or sell these ladders ) www.featherliteladders.com The 3312 Combi (2nd from left in picture...check the above link) Best ladder youll ever own. No need for a roof rail
hey why wont you throw on a roofrack and some Hellas that would be cool
I think they are rated at like 300 pounds...BUT Please keep in mind that the end that are boltes to the roof are only plastic and you really have to watch what you load on them. If you were to have a taller item like a cargo box I would think that this would put even a higher load on the rails. Use good judgement and be safe. I know that All J Products sells a rack and mounts that replace the stock

The wider roof rails I believe are the renegade style but as for the light rail do you mean the light bar If so no not really that is the price but it is not a hard install to do it yourself. stephen
Yeah I meant the light bar that comes on some of the factory KJs. So is there anywhere to buy the wider roof rails other than the dealer Thanks for the reply.
www.jparts.com might have them google the rene roof rails and see what comes up.
Get better railsthe rennys weight limit is for real on there rails.
