OK, OK fine... I'll have to show you my setup cause I think it looks great. As good and close to OEM as possible (personally, the OEM crossbars being black on silver side rails doesn't look too "OEM" to me)... I think I may update my other thread that is more on topic! I'll post a link to it in this thread when I've updated it.Thanks for putting up the pics and showing how they remove. This has been my major concern to the factory cross bars, they don't actually lock. I rarely ever leave gear on my car over night unattended but I would like to leave a bike rack or kayak rack up there for a few days if I know I'm going to use them over and over. But the no lock thing really bothers me. Yakima and Thule lock, but I have yet to see how the interface with the factory roof rails and I'm thinking the fit is not going to be anywhere near as good or clean.
If anyone does have picks of the Thule or Yakima versions installed I'd love to see em!
