  • Recommendation for Wind Noise Prevention for Yakima Roof Rack on 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • To help prevent wind noise created by the Yakima roof rack you installed on your 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee, I recommend the Yakima Windjammer Airfoil # Y01115. It is a small, wing shaped airfoil that serves as a low-cost alternative to fairing. It installs in seconds over the front crossbar and reduces rack noise. I have included a video review and description of this product. It is 1-1/4 inches tall by 3-3/4 inches wide by 8 inches long and comes with a lifetime warranty. I have included...

  • Difference Between Rhino-Rack Vortex And Thule Aeroblade Roof Racks For 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe
  • Both the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero and Thule AeroBlade roof rack systems have very nice features and would work well for your 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe. Both systems are designed to work on vehicles that have the flush mounted rail system. As far as the design or advantages or disadvantages of the Rhino-Rack system versus the Thule system, it is very difficult to say it has features that are better than the Thule. They both have very similar crossbar designs and features but the Rhino-Rack has...

  • Roof Rack Compatible with 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport with Panoramic Sun Roof
  • If your Santa Fe does not have factory-installed flush side rails that run front to back on your roof (and I believe that it does not have these) you can select the Rola Roof Rack for the 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport with Panoramic Sunroof, part # 59779. If your Santa Fe Sport does in fact have the factory-installed roof rails that run front to back on your roof, then you can use the Rola Roof Rack, part # 59766, which is intended for vehicles that do have the factory installed roof...

  • Thule Roof Rack Recommendation for 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • There are indeed some roof rack options available for your Jeep Grand Cherokee. The first thing you'll need to do is determine if your Grand Cherokee has the E group package. You can easily tell this by examining the rails on the roof. If the rails have a metal strip on the top, you have the E group package. For that style roof rail, you'd want to use the Rhino Rack roof rack, which uses existing holes in the roof rails and consists of the following parts: Aero style crossbars, part...

  • What is the Roof Weight Capacity of a 2012 Toyota Highlander with Factory Roof Rack
  • I spoke with a tech at my local Toyota dealer and he told me that the roof weight capacity for the 2012 Toyota Highlander is 100 lbs. This weight capacity applies to factory or aftermarket crossbars. You may wish to use aftermarket crossbars like the Thule AeroBlade Edge, # TH7503-TH7503, or the Whispbar Rail Bar, # WB-S46, because they will not flex as much as the OEM crossbars. You will still be limited to the 100 lbs weight capacity of the vehicle roof, but the crossbars included...

  • Yakima Roof Rack Fits for 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee with Chrome Flush Rails
  • I checked with my contact at Yakima for rack options for your 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee. He advised that if your 2015 Grand Cherokee has chrome strips on its flush side rails then you can use their outstanding ultra-quiet Whispbar system consisting of parts # WB-S25 and # WB-K624. This is a fixed-point rack system using ultra-quiet aerodynamic crossbars and it is shown in the linked video. This is the best option to avoid racks that use clamps, as you prefer. The Whispbar crossbars are...

  • Will Yakima Skyboxes and the ForkLift Bike Rack Fit on Thule AeroBlade Load Bars
  • I went out to the warehouse and pulled a Yakima ForkLift Bike Rack, # Y02098, and the mounting hardware used by a SkyBox, # Y90135. I did a test fit on a Thule AeroBlade Load Bar. I am happy to report that everything fit. The ForkLift and SkyBox both have mounting hardware that has enough adjustability to fit on the new AeroBlade Bars. I made a short video demonstrating the fit.

  • What is the Difference Between Traverse Foot Pack # TH480 and Rapid Traverse Foot Pack # TH480R
  • The Thule Traverse Roof-Rack Foot Pack, # TH480, is designed for use with regular square Thule load Bars, like # THLB50. The Thule Rapid Traverse Roof-Rack Foot Pack, # TH480R, is designed for use with Thule AeroBlade Load Bars, like # THARB47.

  • Compatibility of Thule Roof-Mount Bike Racks with Rhino Rack 2500 Series Cross Bars

Most of the Thule roof-mounted racks that use clamps like the Circuit, # TH526 or the Sidearm, # TH594XT will fit your cross bar. Other Thule racks can use an adapter to mount in the slot on top of the bar should fit, as the slot is of similar dimension to those used on Thule Aero Blade cross bars. If you would care to respond with the specific model number of your Thule bike rack, I would be happy...

  • Thule AeroBlade Roof Rack for a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited
  • We do have a Thule AeroBlade roof rack that will fit your 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited, however the AeroBlade Edge Roof Rack, # TH7502-TH7502, that you referenced will fit raised OEM side rails only. Since your Jeep has the flush side rails, you will want the AeroBlade Traverse Roof Rack. The Traverse roof rack consists of the 60 inch AeroBlade Load Bars, # THARB60, the Traverse Foot Pack, # TH480R, and the Fit Kit, # THKIT1656. You can also add the Thule One-Key Locks, # TH544,...

  • What is the Weight Capacity of the Yakima Roof-Rack Cross Bars
  • I spoke to my contact at Yakima and found that the weight capacity of the 66 inch Yakima cross bar is 165 pounds. To mount a crossbar on the top of your 1999 to 2008 Ford F-250 truck you will need three items which are the Yakima Q Towers Roof Rack Feet, part number Y00135, Q58 Q Clips for Yakima Q Towers, part number Y00658, and the Round 58" CrossBar for Yakima Roof-Rack System, part number Y8810023.

  • What Roof Rack for 2013 Nissan Rogue With Naked Roof
  • Roof rails on your 2013 Rogue are a factory-only option. We cannot offer these rails themselves on an aftermarket basis. However, we can offer you several options for roof racks that can be fitted to a 2013 Nissan Rogue with a naked roof (meaning a roof with no factory-installed side rails or crossbars). Differences between products suitable for your Rogue will include shape, length and color of the crossbars, weight capacity of the rack system, and how quiet the rack is during highway...

  • What Roof Racks Fit 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited with Hard Top Roof
  • Roof racks for your 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Hardtop are available from Yakima and Thule. I have included a link to our product page that shows all four available rack systems for your Jeep. The main differences between the available racks are their crossbar spread (the distance between front and rear crossbars once mounted to your Wrangler) and the shapes of the crossbars themselves. A wider crossbar spread makes it easier to transport longer items. The wing-like aero shape crossbar...

  • How to Remove the End Caps on Thule Rapid Crossroads Feet and AeroBlade Load Bars
  • If you are talking about the end caps on the Rapid Crossroads foot pack # TH450R then they will just pull off (unless you have locks installed then you would unlock them first). For the end caps on the AeroBlade bars there is a little tab on the underside of the bar that you will need to press in while pulling out on the end cap. I made a video showing how this works for you.

  • Roof Rack Compatibility with a 2013 Ford Edge with a Panoramic Roof
  • According to Yakima, the Whispbar Custom Fit Kit, # WB-K485, can be used on your 2013 Ford Edge with the panoramic roof. To complete the roof rack, you will also need the Whispbar Crossbars, # WB-S17. One thing to keep in mind when using a roof rack on your vehicle is that the panoramic sunroof cannot be opened while the roof rack is attached. You could also use the Whispbar Crossbars, # WB-S8, which will provide a factory look, but the usable crossbar space is limited to 41-1/4 inches....

  • How To Reduce Wind Noise Caused by Roof Rack on 2013 Honda Civic
  • When equipment is installed on the roof of a vehicle, wind noise will occur. It is unavoidable, but you can do certain things to minimize the noise. The round bars used with the Yakima rack system you mentioned can be quieted to some degree by using a fairing like part # Y07049. Keep in mind, the fairing will help streamline the rack itself, but whatever is placed on the crossbars like a cargo basket, box or ski rack will cause further turbulence and therefore noise. Using a Aero-style...

  • Will Other Brands of Roof Rack Accessories Fit on Rola Racks With Elliptical T-Slot Crossbars
  • Rola T-Slot equipped crossbars are intended for Rola accessories but will also work with other brands of similar roof-rack-mount accessories. Since the different brands do not test with each others products there may be instances where a particular T-slot accessory from one maker may not work ideally with the Rola crossbars, but usually we find that these similar systems are compatible. I have included a photo of a Rola T-Slot crossbar showing the dimensions of the slot, which are 0.83...
