I need a rack for my grand Cherokee that will work for wakeboards in the summer and skis and snowboard in the winter. Anyone have any recommendations? Photos would be nice too

I explored this thru Thule, the cool snowboard rack they have is not wide enough for a normal wakeboard nor are the locking cables long enough to go around a wakeboard, I still have not found a solution but I did pick up some Thule compression racks but they didn't come with mounting feet, I think they'll work though, only problem is, Thule sells the entire lower half as a unit, I can't just buy the clamps

Ive got the Yakima Fatcat 6 and i love them. I can put 4 snowboards (two facing up and two upside down) in them in the winter and holds my wakeboard fine with room to spare. Comes with all mounting hardware needed also has an extension built in so you can angle the racks for more room but you dont have to use it.
