Most brands make them and have them available to purchase separately too.

My personal opinion is Thule makes the best base rack systems (mounts and crossbars) and Yakima makes the best racks (the part that actually holds your stuff). I opted for a full Yakima setup on mine.
Thanks for the feedback. I agree, yakima makes great stuff, but didn't feel like spending the 700-800 bucks on one at the moment. Came across the OEM bars and inno fairing locally for a steal, so I jumped on it. I only will be hauling our snowboards, so nothing crazy. I think it should work just fine. I'll take a look at the fatcat and the thule snow attachment.

Here's a better shot of the rack
