Re: Roof Rail specs
Got the cross bars. They are reasonably strong and aero. Mopar sticker is attached to what appears to be a Thule OEM product.
Any ski/bike/kayak/clamshell box attachments will slide into either end of the cross bars and then the cap and lock secure all attachments to the bars. That portion looks like good security.
Still not sure that the cross bars themselves and any gear attached could not simply be removed from the top of the roof mounts per the two torx style bolts. Per the below photo, a traditional torx head wrench will not fit into the nuts that hold the cross bars to the top of the mounts. This is OK, but still could be unattached with this skeleton torx wrench.
The other possibility is that the ski/bike/kayak/clamshell box mounts could potentially be mounted and locked over these two skeleton torx bolts, preventing others from getting to them without unlocking the fixtures above.
Yea, I'm a bit anal retentive and the best bet is to take your gear inside. Regardless, many lose expensive gear from their roof racks if not squared away properly.
I'll recheck this with a local rack attack. Thoughts?
