1 out of 5 eggsCame Rusty

Pros: The rust must be free...I have not even assembled them yet...I opened the box and the instructions were stained orange/red from the rusty parts inside. At least all the parts are here

Cons: Seriously, rusty and dinged up...scratched from a lack of any packing materials. Who in their right mind would pack metal parts for shipment without any protection?

Other Thoughts: disappointed

2 out of 5 eggslow quality

Pros: The typical design is good. I have a pair of Thule's - same design. Love them

Cons: The quality is poor. The mounts don't work on my Xterra (and won't work on the Frontier either. There isn't enough distance on the threads. Also the mounting plates are very weak and I can't imagine holding my 40 lb kayak on these let alone in wind or on the highway. I simply can't trust it. I won't even give these away because I don't want to be behind someone using these on the highway.

Other Thoughts: Again, I have a set of Thule's for 5 yrs + and they are amazing.

2 out of 5 eggsNot well made

Pros: The JBar is a perfect design for carrying a canoe or kayak.
I have a set of Thules and they are awesome so when I saw these as a deal, I jumped... Oops.

Cons: I have an Xterra and there is no way they will work on my roof. The hardware that comes with it doesn't make sense and I can't imagine how it would make sense on all but a few vehicles. The hardware is made of weak metal, so even if you did get it attached to your roof tracks, I wouldn't trust a 12' or larger kayak or canoe on them in a slight wind let alone at 50 miles an hour.

Other Thoughts: spend the money on a better brand.

4 out of 5 eggsGood value J-Bar

Pros: Great price, strong construction. Happy with purchase.

Cons: Has same short comings as all J-Bars I've used. Kayaks don't rest in the cradle where the foam padding is. I fixed this with some heavy large diameter foam noodle cut to fit where I need padding. Straps are lighter than more expensive versions, but are strong enough. I cut strap ends at a diagonal and fused with a bic lighter so they thread thru cams much better than the square cut ends they come with. Six more inches on the strap length would be great.

Other Thoughts: Best value I can find in J-Bars. I fish just about every day and use these to haul my kayaks. Main problems would be the same with any J-Bar. I bought two sets for less than my friend paid for one and I like them better with my foam additions.

4 out of 5 eggsThey do what they are supposed to

Pros: They are J-bars, there isn't much to say. The foam pads seem nice, I'm interested to see how they hold up. It comes with a couple of decent tie down straps too. Comes with all the hardware you need as well.

Cons: You get what you pay for. The finish was pretty decent but the fit was awful. The part where they connect was really crooked on 2 of them (I bought 2 sets) and it took a lot of coaxing with a rubber mallet to get them together. Then the square holes where the bolts go through don't quite line up with the rubber bit on the bottom on all of them, so it takes a bit of creativity to get the bolts in.

Other Thoughts: These are designed to fit square crossbars, they may fit some ovals too, but it looks like square ones are what they had in mind when they made these.

4 out of 5 eggscheap alternative

Pros: J-bar rack is made of mostly metal components. Once tightened down to Thule bar, seems pretty secure.

Cons: Appears a bit smaller with less cushioning than the competitors.
