Video Transcript for Thule WingBar Evo Crossbars Installation - 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Hey everybody, how's it going Today, we're gonna be going over, and showing you how to install, the Thuli Evo Crossbars System, here on our 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee. So, let's take a closer look at our roof rack system here. The first thing we're gonna notice, is the shape of our crossbars. So, there's a few different types of Aero crossbars on the market, Thule however, are the only ones with this airplane wing shaped crossbar. Now, what this does is, it does a couple of different things. Number one, provides the best aerodynamics, therefore we're gonna get the best, or the least amount of wind resistance.

You're not gonna have to worry about as much wind noise. And number two, because of the wind resistance, we're gonna have the best miles per gallon saving. Some crossbar systems, When you add the bulky square crossbars, they're gonna catch a lot of wind, therefore creating drag and reducing your miles per gallon. So, if you have a panoramic roof on your Grand Cherokee, it's a great feature, and we don't wanna lose it with a roof rack installed. Therefore it's important that it still works with the system in place.

And, as you can see here, there are no interference issues whatsoever. So, going further into the crossbars, we're gonna have an end cap on each side, which we can flip up. And this is gonna reveal the start, or the end rather, of the integrated channels in the top of the crossbar. So, depending on what type of accessories you're using, some of them use wraparound clamps, where they attached to the bottom of the crossbar and set on top, or so of them actually use a T-bolt, and they just simply slide into the track. So, if you have those T-bolt mounted accessories, we could easily use them with this crossbar system on this vehicle.

For some vehicles, where there's not a lot of space between the top of the roof and the bottom of the crossbars, those T-bolts are a must. Therefore, it's nice to be able to utilize them here with these Thule crossbars. So, right now our system that we currently have installed, has the black crossbars, which I think looks really well here on our Grand Cherokee. However, there is still an option for silver bars as well. So either one you prefer, whichever is gonna match your vehicle better, is what I recommend.

I'd also like to point out that our crossbars here are gonna be 53 inches long, which is the recommended size for this vehicle. So touching a bit more on that recommended bar size of 53 inches, this is really a great length for this vehicle here, because it provides us with the necessary overhang that certain crossbar accessories require, and it's also gonna allow us to fit as much stuff as we can on the roof here. We did fit several bikes up here, a cargo box, and a couple bikes, a couple of kayaks. Really the possibilities are endless with this bar size here. We shouldn't have any issues running out of room. So, another feature of this crossbar system that I really like, is that it can be locked with additional metal locking cores, purchased separately. We'd simply remove these black plastic plugs here, and insert our metal locking core, offer security for our roof rack and accessories. So, we talked about all the various things we can throw up on our roof here. There is one stipulation, however, we need to be aware of. And that's gonna be the weight capacity of our system here, which is 165 pounds evenly distributed across both crossbars. However, that may not seem like a lot, but I don't think you're gonna be maxing that out with the space we have available here. That's gonna be plenty for you to carry your favorite accessories. So in regards to installation, this is very simple. All the tools we need are gonna be included with our kit, and it's gonna mount into a factory fixed point on the vehicle here. And the great thing is, we actually have a couple of different to choose from, depending on what accessories we're carrying, But, as you can see, there's actually minimal contact. So, there's really no chance at all to cause any damage to the roof of our vehicle. So, a roof rack is gonna be composed of three separate components. We have the crossbar, which is what we have here. We have the mounting feet, which is what you see right here. And then finally, we have the fit kit. So both the crossbars and the mounting feet are sort of universal, if you will. The fit kit is gonna be the component that's gonna be specific to your Grand Cherokee. So, now that we have all of our components ready and laid out in front of us, we can begin assembly. First thing we're gonna do, is we're gonna flip our crossbar over. Just one little note I wanna make at this time, before we start, is that our crossbar is sort of shaped like an airplane wing. The larger round portion needs to be facing the front of the vehicle. So, keep that in mind during assembly. Where we're gonna flip the crossbar over, and on each end we have an end cap we have to remove. If we simply depressed that section there, we should be able to pull it straight out. We have one on each side. We also have a little adjuster here. You just wanna make sure that's all the way in. Next, we're gonna take one of our mounting feet here. So, that's what this part looks like. And we're gonna go ahead and slide that into the channels in our crossbar. So, we want sort of this unfinished side to be facing out, like so. We'll slide it in about halfway, and we'll do that same thing on the other side with our other mounting foot. Once we have both of our mounting feet installed, we can reinstall our end cap here, so we don't have to worry about the mounting feet sliding off the crossbar while we're working. So, next we need to grab our fit kit here. So the first thing we're gonna grab, is our little rubber pads here. So, although they may look the same, there is a difference. We're gonna have two of each in our kit. Two are labeled 46 and two are labeled 45. One is for the driver's side, the other's for the passenger's side. So, next we're gonna grab the number 46 pad here. We're gonna be working over on the passenger's side, where we're just gonna clip this in place. There's gonna be a little groove here on the bottom, that's gonna line up with the notch on the foot. So, it's kind of hard to see, but once you get your hands on it, it will definitely make a lot more sense. But, we're just gonna place that over the little channel, just like so. And then, the next thing we're gonna do is, we're gonna take our metal car clip here, that looks like this. We need to do some assembly first. So, we need to take a couple of different things. We're gonna have a socket head cap screw, a split lock washer, and then one of these little rubber spacers here. So, how this works is, we're gonna take our socket head cap screw, our split lock washer, place that over there, like so. We're gonna stick it through the top of the metal car clip, and then we're gonna hold it underneath with our rubber washer here, just like that. Once we have that done, we can go ahead and insert it into the foot pack assembly here. So, we're gonna be lining up these two holes with the two rubber ears on our pad. It's pretty simple to understand. The raised portion here on the car clip, is gonna be facing out away from the vehicle. Just like that. Next thing we're gonna do, is secure our metal car clip and our rubber pad here to the foot pack assembly, using the hardware that comes with the feet. You're gonna get these smaller socket head cap screws. There's gonna be one on each end here. So, you're gonna have to line up three different pieces of material here. That rubber pad, the metal car clip, and then there's gonna be a threaded rod inside the foot pack assembly. So, just hold everything together and begin threading to line everything up. So, our aim right now is just to get them both started. We don't wanna tighten them down all the way, because we still wanna be able to move the foot inside the crossbar, like so. So we're just gonna get them started here, without snugging them up just yet. Now, we're just gonna repeat that same process on the other side. The only thing that's gonna be different, is we need to make sure that we're using the rubber pad labeled 45 for the driver. So, next thing we're gonna do is we're gonna come up to the roof of our vehicle here, and inside the channels here, these glossy black channels, you're gonna have a few different Torx bolts. So, these Torx bolts are gonna be spaced throughout these rails here. And these are the various points we can use to mount our roof rack. We'll have a couple at the front, one in the center, and then one at the rear. So, we're gonna go ahead and show you the rear. So, we're gonna take the Torx security bit here, that comes in the fit kit pack. And we're gonna use this to remove that Torx screw there on the roof, just like so. So, we're gonna have one on each side. We need to remove them both, for both the front and rear crossbar. So now, once we have our crossbar assembly partially assembled, we can go ahead and set it up on the vehicle here, and mount it to the points that we just removed the Torx bits from. So, I will say if you have an extra set of hands, that will help you with the step, but it is possible to do by yourself. So, now what we need to do, is we're gonna take the Allen head that comes in our fit kit. We're just gonna simply tighten down that cap screw into the factory fixed mounting points. Now, I will say this part is kind of tedious, because you don't have a lot of room to move your wrench, but just be patient, take your time, make sure we don't cross thread that bolt there, and we can get it attached to the vehicle. And obviously, we have to do this on both sides. So, the next thing we're gonna do, once we have both of those bolts tight, we have the fit clip of our mounting feet securely attached to the roof, we need to center our crossbar on the roof here. There's a couple of different ways to do that. The easiest way is just to simply measure from this point of the mounting feet to the end of the crossbar, and just make sure that's the same on both sides. Once we have it centered, we can tighten these two outer Allen bolts here, using the hex wrench that comes with the mounting feet kit. So, these are gonna actually tighten the crossbars to the mounting feet, so they can't slide back and forth, side to side. And then once we get this side buttoned up, we'll just simply repeat that same process on the other side. So, now the last thing we need to do, is take one of our covers here, slide it over the mounting foot, like so, and if you have the plastic lock cord, we're just gonna take a flathead screwdriver, turn that to lock it in place. If you opted for the metal lock cores, which are sold separately, you'd install those using the keys that Thule provides. Now we'll go ahead, and install that same cover on the other side. And we'll repeat this entire process for the other crossbar system. And that's gonna do it today for our look and installation of the Thule Evo Crossbars system here on our 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee..

I've always trusted Thule bars. I have an old Xsporter on my truck that works really well and it has held up over time. I needed to get a Thule rack for my Jeep Grand Cherokee and found that etrailer had all the parts I needed specified for my model. That was one of my favorite things about the site. No need to search around for the different parts to attached onto the factory rails. Once I received the rack and components, it was really easy to install. I pretty much watched the etrailer videos before hand. I have the older Hullavator 897XT to haul my kayak in. With the WingBar Evo, I found I needed to get a slightly longer bolt (6-1.00 x 30), which I got from the local Ace hardware store, to attached the Hullavator support bracket to the WingBar. Once I got those bolts set up, I was on the water with the kayak the next day. Talked to the customer service a few times and they are great friendly people. And I can understand what they are saying.

I gave your company and especially the sales associate Samantha a diamond star rating for being able pull off for me what many other store and dealers claim was impossible at the time which was acquiring my Thule roof rack system. I am now ready for my kayak fishing season thanks to your team. When the shopping gets tough, find it on etrailer!

Parts were great for fit and function. Instructions total FAIL. Purchased new roof racks in three boxes: feet, podium, and rails, three unique sets of directions, all very poor in clarity and actual steps. For a premium product this is very disappointing. Installed them consulting third party videos and forums with anecdotal information, not what I would expect to have to do for the money I spent.

Great Etrailer service but the Thule instructions are horrible! Once I decided to forgo the instructions the install went smoothly. Still not sure if installed correctly though. The rubber "boots" do not conform to the rails and the only thing holding the rack ends to the truck are the four bolts? Nothing attaches to the rail itself or hooks onto it?

The roof rack and accessories have been used extensively over the past year and am very pleased with the product. After an original replacement issue was resolved, very quick and positive response from etrailer, there have been no product issues. Would highly recommend this product and high marks to etrailer for initial product purchase, installation videos and follow up. Regards George S.

Wow !!!! Excellent service and very fast shipping. I bought the Yakima Megawarrior cargo basket with the Thule Aeroblade roof rack and the Carpod walled folding cargo basket. I love the way these parts fit as well as the cargo carrying capacity. I really can’t say enough about trailer customer service and shipping they really do place value in their customers. Would highly recommend using this company for your part needs !!!

I was very happy with the Thule Roof Rack I ordered for my 2016 Grand Cherokee Limited. It fit very well and is top quality, also looks great on the top of my Jeep. But I must say I was even more pleased with the service from etrailer.com. The sales rep that I spoke to, Cathy T, was very professional and helped me to be sure I ordered the correct Roof Rack. I also received it in a timely fashion. I am sure I will buy from etrailer.com again soon.

Order arrived accurately filled and in a very timely manner. And the packaging of the items was EXCEPTIONAL! etrailer showed great care and concern for the products shipped by packaging them securely and carefully. Although a small challenge to open, there was little question as to their pride in being a terrific vendor. It shows a lot, considering how other vendors throw things together and send them out. Well done and worthy of future orders as needs arise. Keep up the great work.

Overall, satisfied with the product--customer service was way ahead. When they found out the part ordered was not in stock they immediately called to give me a better estimate. I appreciated that--seems companies forget most people just want to feel important and that their order isn't pushed to the back of the line while others move ahead. Well done etrailer team--my hat is off to you. Best customer service I've received in a long time.

    We have just what you'll need to install a Thule Wingbar Evo roof rack on your 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee but you'll need to first look at your roof to determine what style of roof you have so that you can pick out the correct components. If there are flush rails on the roof of your vehicle that run front to back that have a chrome section in the middle or a black section you'll need the parts # TH711420, # TH460R, and # THKIT3142.

  • Kayak Carrier for 2 Wilderness Pungo 120 Kayaks on a 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee
    The Thule AeroBlade Edge Roof Rack, parts # TH7602-TH7602, and # THKIT3142, will look great on your 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee. While it is compatible with the Stacker # TH830, the Stacker can only accommodate kayaks up to 10' long max so we recommend going with the Hull-A-Port Aero # TH849000 instead. If you'd like to stick with a post-style carrier then the Rhino-Rack Nautic Stack Kayak Carrier w/ Tie-Downs # RRS520 will work with your setup.

  • How to Install the Thule 3142 Fit Kit for Podium Style Foot Packs on a Jeep Grand Cherokee
    There are two main components to the Thule Fit Kit for Podium Style Foot Pack part # THKIT3142, a rubber moulding and a metal fit clip. The rubber moulding is contoured to the shape of the side rail but does not hook or clip onto the rail. It will just simply sit on top of the rail. However, the metal fit clip does indeed hook onto the track inside of the rail therefore the bolt is not the only thing securing the roof rack to your vehicle though it is the main component.

  • Can a Roof Rack Be Left On Through a Car Wash
    We usually recommend removing the roof rack and any rooftop mounted accessories while running the vehicle through a car wash because if damage were to occur, it would more than likely not be covered by the manufacturer. However, this primarily is an issue on vehicle's that use car clips and as your vehicle does not use car clips, you would probably be fine with leaving the rack installed.

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee High Altitude Trim
    Thank you for all of the details you shared of your 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Since you have black rails without the chrome sections we have a similar Yakima Jetstream roof rack that would work great with the part # Y00426, # Y00146, and # Y06121 which is very similar to the The Wingbar. This would give you an aero bar that will be very quiet while on the highway and is also high quality and easy to install as well.

  • What Roof Rack Do You Recommend for My 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee?
    You will be limiting the space on the roof of your 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee (with black/chrome flush mounted rails) for a cargo carrier if you purchase the 35-inch long Thule AeroBlade Edge Roof Rack - Fixed Mounting Points/Flush, Factory Side Rails - Aluminum # TH7602B-TH7602B (you will only have 29-1/4 inches - 33-1/4 inches of usable crossbar space).

  • Can Thule Podium Feet be Used for Roof Rack on 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee
    If your 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee has the black and chrome track, flush mounted rails that run front to back (see attached) then you will be able to reuse the Rapid Podium Feet # TH460R that you currently have with the Fit Kit # THKIT3142. According to Thule though your 47" AeroBlade crossbars are too short and you'll need at least the 53" crossbars. These are now available as the WingBar Evo and we have them in Black # TH711420 as well as Silver # TH711400. If you don't have the...

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee with E-Group Flush Rails with Chrome Center
    For an OEM roof rack confirmed as a fit for your 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee with flush rails that have chrome center sections (the E-Group rails) the Thule Aeroblade Edge roof rack part numbers # TH7602-TH7602 and # THKIT3142 is the kit you want. This is a confirmed fit, gives you the OEM looking crossbars that mount flush to the feet of the rack and has crossbars that are aerodynamically shaped so that they aren't loud either.

  • Is There A 2 Bike Add-On for a Thule T2 Pro Bike Rack 9034
    The correct 2 Bike Add-On for your Thule T2 Pro Bike Rack 9034 is no longer available and the 2 Bike Add-On for Thule T2 Pro XTB part # TH9036XT will not work in its place. Therefore, if you need to carry more bikes on the hitch you will need a new bike rack, I recommend the Thule T2 Classic 4 Bike Platform Rack part # TH9044-TH9046. If you want to keep using your Thule T2 Pro Bike Rack 9034 then you can place the two additional bikes on the roof of your 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee with...

  • Comparing Yakima OffGrid and Rola Atlas Roof Cargo Baskets for 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee
    Both the Yakima OffGrid # Y07138 and the Rola Atlas # 59043 roof baskets are compatible with round, square, aero, elliptical, and most factory crossbars and both feature comparable weight capacities: 165 lbs for the OffGrid and 160 lbs for the Atlas.

When it comes to space, the Yakima OffGrid Roof Cargo Basket is 44 inches long by 40 inches wide but there is an 18 inch extension available,...

  • Is the Malone DownLoader Compatible with Thule Square Bars
    Yes. Your Malone DownLoader # MPG114MD is compatible with Thule Square Bars like the 53" long # TH712400, but it looks like you may want to consider 60" bars like the # TH712500 because of the width of your new Jeep. If you can tell me what type of roof rails you have or if you've got a naked roof, I can also help you identify which foot pack and fit kit will work for your 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee. I've also linked our entire available selection of roof racks for use on the 2020 Jeep...

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for a 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee with E Group Package
    To get the most out of your roof rack I recommend going with the Thule WingBar roof rack for your 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee because the WingBar bars are the longest and quietest out there for your Jeep, and they are made of a lightweight aluminum which will last longer than steel bars. This consists of the 53" WingBar Evo Bars # TH711400 Silver or # TH711420 Black, along with the Podium Foot Pack # TH460R, and the Fit Kit # THKIT3142. If you would like to add locks to this roof rack then...
