I just put my new racks together last night and they have a new fairing now that is a lot different than my old one. Not sure if I like it and it's "wings" yet...
I didn't like the way the new fairing sat between the crossbars like that. And for what I use my racks for the wider fairing, which only attached to this front crossbar/tower setup was the one for me. I decided to use the factory rails to mount the rear bar and it has worked out perfectly. I have more range in the space I can achieve between the front and rear bars because the rear bar can now slide the entire length of the OEM rails. I like it...
P.S. mine are yakima, not thule. And I agree with you that the Thule fairings are weird looking.
