Video Transcript for Thule WingBar Evo Crossbars Installation - 2018 Jeep Compass

Today in our 2018 Jeep Compass, we're going to be doing a test fit on Thule WingBar Roof Rack System. This is a great accessory for your vehicle. It's going allow you to use your favorite Thule accessories, whether you got a bike rack, a kayak carrier or a cargo basket, anything like that. It's going to let you put on your roof rack and just get anything that won't fit in your vehicle up on your roof. This is going to be made up of three different components. First we have our Thule WingBar Crossbar.

This is going to be a 47" crossbar. It is in black right now, but also does come in silver. Just see for that color. It has a nice aerodynamic shape to it, so that's going to help cut down on wind noise and drag while you're traveling.What's really cool is that if you have any T track accessories, we don't have to take the end cap off. We can just slide the cap up like so.

That gives us access to the channel. Now what Thule has done with these new wingbars is instead of the old load bars, we have to peal the rubber strip up and then cut it to length for your accessory. You just slide it in between these two rubber strips and then this locks down. And when you have it in place you just bring it back up right here, just lock it down.Now the middleman is going to be our podium foot pack and that's what's going to be connecting our crossbar to our fit kit and right under you're going to see just the different components to it. We have the two screws that are holding down our fit kit plate right here, and that brings us to our third component, which is the fit kit for our specific Jeep Compass.

It's going to be this rubber pad right here with a rubber coated plate. Both of those are going to not damage your vehicle at all because of their nice rubber coating.Another great feature about this roof rack system is we're not going to have to do any type of measuring. Our Jeep Compass is going to have its own fixed mounting points on the inside of our flush mounted rails, you're going to have one option up front, so it's going to be one spot where the front crossbar can go. But in the back you're going to have two different options. You can either put it right here or if you want a wider spread, there are two more points back here, which is going to bring the bar back about eight, nine inches.

That's a very nice hassle free installation, so you're not going to have to worry about measuring from the top of your windshield to the front of your foot pack and then you got to measure from your crossbar to crossbar to get the right spread and if you're off just a little bit, that could affect tightening down your roof rack system.Now let's take a few measurements on our roof rack. First we're going to go from the top of our roof to the bottom of our crossbar, which is going to be about three and a half inches. So that's plenty of space for any type of strap on or clamp on accessory to come under the crossbar without coming in contact with our roof. Now if we go from the top of our roof to the top of our crossbar, that's going to be about four and three quarters inches. So that's how much you going to be adding onto the top of your vehicle, so you want to keep that in mind for any low clearance situations. And also the weight limit for this roof rack system is going to be 220 pounds, which is a big step up from your traditional Thule load bars. But you want to double check with your Compass' manual to make sure that your roof can handle that weight.This roof rack's very easy to get installed. We'll go ahead and show you how to now. Now we have the front crossbar installed. We're going to go ahead and show you how to assemble the rest of the back crossbar and we'll get it up on our roof. So first when I flip it over like this, we have our end cap removed. We're going to take the pieces of our fit kit, which is this rubber coated metal plate and the rubber grommet. I'm going to feed that plate up into the grommet like that. Make sure we line up those holes right there, we'll give you a back view real quick. And then from here hold again in place, want to grab this part of our podium foot. Flip around just to show you this little cylinder right here and we're going to be screwing it in to that cylinder, but from the other side.So right here, just going to line everything up correctly. You do want to take your time. It could be tricky just because it's four sets of holes to line up. We're going to take our screw and feed it through and then we just want to get it threaded on and then we'll want to tighten it down just a few turns for now. Once you feel it threading, we'll grab our other MA bolts and do the same thing.And then once you have both of them on and threaded, then turned a couple of times, we can go ahead and just take the whole system and slide it into the channel using that little piece right there. Just going to go like that. Then we'll grab our end cap, throw it on the end of our wing bar and then we can put it up on the roof.Now you're going to want to decide which spot to put your crossbar. We have a spot right here and a spot right here. You'll notice we removed these two little plugs right here so that we could use these mounting points for our podium foot pack. And we do this on the other side too. Once you remove those plugs it's a good idea to show them in your car, on the off you want to take your roof rack off some time. Then you have the plugs to replace later.Now making sure you have your wingbar facing the correct way, you can tell because the thinner part right here is going to be towards the back. It's what helps the aerodynamic shape. We're going to go ahead and put it over our roof and set it on our raised side rail. Just like that. We can do both sides. You want to line up the hole and we'll take our included hardware right here. We're going to thread it on. It's a little bit faster just to hand tighten it instead of using the provided tool. You're going to do this for all four of them. And then once you get it all the way tightened down with your hands, you can take your included tool and tighten down the rest of the way. Then repeat this process for the other side.Now once you've done that, you're going to want to measure your crossbar overhang to make sure it's even on both sides. And when that's done, I'm going to come and tighten down these two bolts right here and that's going to lock our bars into place so they don't shift it all while we're traveling. There we go, it's locked down. Now we're just going to grab our end cap and put it on. Just slides on like that. You can lock it down. And then once you've done that, you're ready to just hit the road.And that'll do it for our look at the Thule WingBar Roof Rack System on our 2018 Jeep Compass.

  • Will the Rhino-Rack RS 2500 Fit My 2018 Jeep Compass?
    I have a solution for you. Unfortunately, I confirmed with Rhino-Rack that the Rhino-Rack RS 2500 Roof Rack for Fixed Mounting Points # RRRS367 will not fit your 2018 Jeep Compass with fixed mounting points. However, there are bars with a similar style to the RS 2500 that are confirmed to fit. Here are the parts that I recommend: - Thule AeroBlade Edge Roof Rack - Fixed Mounting Points/Flush, Factory Side Rails - Aluminum - Black # TH7601B-TH7602B - Fit Kit for Thule Podium-Style Roof...

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for 2018 Jeep Compass for Thule Hullavator Pro Kayak Carrier
    I checked with Thule and they confirmed the fit of the Thule Hullavator Pro part # TH898 on your 2018 Jeep Compass with thier Aeroblade roof rack that has the 47 inch long Aeroblade bars. So the rack you'd need consists of part numbers # TH711220, # TH460R, and # THKIT3164 and you'd be set to use the Hullavator. The slots in the bottom of the crossbars do allow some movement of the bar in the feet so if you wanted to push them more to one side for the Hullavator's overhang requirement...

In addition to the fit kit you will also need the Thule WingBar Evo Crossbars - Aluminum - Black - 47" Long - Qty 2 part # TH711220, the Rapid Podium Feet for Thule Crossbars - Fixed Point - Qty 4, part # TH460R, and the Thule One-Key System Lock Cylinders - Qty 4, part # TH450400.

  • Recommended Roof Rack for 2018 Jeep Compass and 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee Both with Flush Rails
    For your 2018 Jeep Compass, you will use the crossbars # TH711220, legs # TH480R , and fit kit # THKIT3164. You will also need locks # TH450400. For your 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee, you will use crossbars # TH711520, the same legs # TH480R and locks # TH450400, but different fit kit # THKIT1656. You can use the same crossbars if you don't mind the longer crossbars on your Compass, but the fit kit will not be compatible between vehicles. You will need the custom fit for each one.

  • WIll Lockrack Watersport Carrier Carry My Canoe
    Yes this will be a large load on your 2018 Jeep Compass but the Lockrack Adjustable Watersport Carrier # 339-LRUNISETX and your Thule Aeroblade Roof Rack # TH7601-TH7602, # THKIT3164. From what I could information I could find on your Rogue River 14, is that it is 37" wide and 89 lb. That falls under the max width of 47-1/2" and max weight of 175 lb. This is a really good way to transport your canoe because of the wrap around design of the arms but I would still pick up a set of bow and...

  • Thule Roof Racks that Fits 2018 Jeep Compass
    I found the video you referenced and in it our installer is installing the Thule Wingbar Evo part numbers # TH711220, # TH460R, and # THKIT3164 which is not a flush bar setup. Flush bar racks install where the bar does not extend past the feet and in that video the bars go past the feet. If you did want a flush bar rack for your 2018 Compass the parts you'd need instead are # TH96FE, # TH89SC, and # TH66GC. At this time we don't have any pictures or videos of this rack installed on a...
