Default roof rack - Thule setup vs Yakima

I see a lot of xB2s using Yakima racks but is anyone using Thule?
I am getting a great deal on a full rack system plus a pull top snowboard carrier and I'm wondering if anybody have something similar

I want bars that don't stick out as much, but it doesn't let me see any sizes. I used the Thule fit guide on the website for 08-11 xBs, it suggested I use the RB60 Rapid Aero Load Bar Pair and KIT 1482

I had my inno hooks modified a lot so i could have the fairing right as the roof line flattemed out. i think the directions say to have the hooks directly above the door handles. My front bar was about 8" from the windshield.

Get the Inno rack. I got the square bar, locking towers, clips on sale on an internet site for like $170 free ship. I think they had a "free bars" special They are as good IMHO as the Thule. I carry 2 kayaks on top of my box. I place them a lot farther apart than the recommended 24", more like 42". It provides more support to my kayaks as I lay them flat. Anyway I am a happy camper with them.

It was a lot of measuring, trial and error, cutting, grinding, and welding. haha. I dont remember the exact measurements, but it was an idea that I had and just ran with it.

Heres some shots of how it looked:
