    you could use the factory installed crossbars to attach up to 2 bikes directly to those crossbars, or you could bypass those crossbars and use a stronger, more versatile rack system, like the thule 45050. then you can attach bike mounts to that, but also have the ability to carry additional accessories at the same time.

    any of those bike racks will fit your jeep...fork mount or upright carrier.
    if you are ok taking your front wheel off, and fork mounting the bike, then i'd recommend the yakima forklift or the rocky mounts tierod.
    if you want to carry the bike with both wheels attached, then i would recommend the thule sidearm.
    in fact, i'd probably recommend this rack over the others, because it is least likely to stick back as far on the roof as the others which might create rear hatch interference.
