Default Roof Rack Wind Deflector

Was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on where to find a wind deflector for a stock 2013 Subaru roof rack?

I remember reading that if you were using the stock crossbars...you had to fab some mounting brackets for the thule/yakima fairings. If you use the inno fairings...you won't have a problem. Of course this was a few years ago so maybe a bracket has been made since than?

I solved this problem by just getting a yakima set-up. Pricey but no regrets. Great quality and awesome customer service. My high roller got messed up one day - it wouldn't lock properly. I sent Yakima a photo/video and three days later, I received a brand new high roller in the mail. boom.

I dunno, i didn't have to fab anything, I just took the oem clamps spun them backwards and got longer stainless bolts to an INNO medium fairing. No fabrication just 4 dollars in hardware and it worked great. But the INNO fairing doesn't mount direct to the factory cross bars that some posts lead you to believe.

I was at REI tonight and stumbled across their Mighty Mounts. I do not have a factory rack, but know what they look like. Has anyone used the Mighty Mounts to their advantage to hook up a Yakima fairing? After all, Subaru did contract with them to make the racks.

This is how I did it, because the INNO Medium fairing on the 13/14's does not fit the factory bars. From what I understand is the 11/12 actually have a (13/14 isslightly different; longer in depth and returning to an older profile used on foresters or something like that) profile that the INNO fastening system doesn't work on.

I purchased the OEM style clamp using a mysubaru to find a local online distributor, the cost was cheaper than I could find OEM.

I then installed the clamps reversed on the bars facing the wrong direction. The including INNO fasteners turned out to not be long enough so I purchased stainless fasteners with washers and locknuts.

Below is what it looks like setup this way from just crappy phone pics.

The inno fairing I got fit just fine on my 13 factory cross bars, but the mounts are a different design then those above.
