I purchased both versions and they were visually identical.  I returned one, kept the other to fit on my 2017.  Very straigtforward install except for the upper bolt mount (see pic).  I didn't have a small enough screw driver to twist on the "Quick Lock" fasteners on both sides given space was so tight so I decided to use permanent bolts from Caribou Luggage (link below) to attach my racks instead.  I lose the "Quick Lock" feature but the racks are now more sturdy and a bit more theft proof.
