The factory ones can be removed with an allen wrench from what I understand. The Whispbars do cost quite a bit more--especially since you say you can get the stock ones for free.
For what it's worth, the HighRollers don't lock to the crossbars. The Front Loaders do and is the route I went. No problems so far.
Thanks for the input. I read the FrontLoader interferes with the hatch from opening and prevents the use of a flairing.
