Best 2017 Subaru Forester Roof Rack Options

Today we're going to be going over the best roof rack options available for your 2017 Subaru Forester. When choosing roof racks for your particular vehicle, I want you to keep in mind that this is going to be for the Subaru Foresters with factory raise side rails. These are going to be the top three options for that vehicle. Up at the top, we have the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Roof Rack System. Here we have the Thule AeroBlade Edge Rack System. At the bottom, we have the Inno Aero Bar Roof Rack System. The Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Roof Rack System consists of part numbers RRVA126B-2.


Rhino Rack Roof Rack Review - 2017 Ram 1500

Today on our 2017 Ram 1500, we're going to be test-fitting the Rhino-Rack Roof Rack System. Now, this consists of part numbers RRVA150B-2. Those are the crossbars, and part number RRLKVA. Those are the Rhino-Rack 2500 series legs for the vortex aero crossbars, and then part number DK043, and this is the custom-fit kit for this vehicle. The Rhino-Rack Roof Rack System is great for carrying a wide variety of accessories ranging from cargo baskets to enclosed cargo boxes to bike racks and to ski carriers, pretty much anything that you can't put in the bed of your truck once it's filled up. Now, both bars have a nice, aerodynamic shape to them, and that coupled with the vortex strips at the top are going to cut down the wind, noise and drag while you're driving.


Thule Roof Rack Review - 2016 Honda Pilot

Today on our 2016 Honda Pilot we're doing a test fit of the Thule roof rack kit. This is going to consist of the Thule AeroBlade crossbars, part number THARB60; the Thule Rapid Traverse foot pack, part number TH480R; and the Thule Fit Kit for the Honda Pilot, part number THKIT1811. Now we already have our front bar loaded up and installed. We're going to show you how we put together our back bar. We've already got one of our foot packs together on our bar and measured out. We're going to show you how to do this last one here. You'll see our foot pack, our crossbar end cap, our Fit Kit pieces, the pad and the clamp.


Rhino Rack Roof Rack Review - 2017 Ram 2500

Today on 2017 RAM 2500 we'll be taking a look at the Rhino Rack Roof Rack kit. This is consisting of part numbers RRVA150B-2, those are going to be our Vortex Aero Crossbars. The next part number is RRRLKVA, those are our Rhino Rack 2500 Series legs. For our foot kit the part number is going to be DK043. Now you'll see we already have our front bar installed. We're going to put together our last leg kit and then show you how to load this back bar up onto our vehicle. Everything that you see here comes in our kit.


Rhino Rack Roof Rack Review - 2017 Nissan Altima

Today on our 2017 Nissan Ultima, we're going to be test-fitting the Rhino-Rack Roof Rack system consisting of part numbers RRVA126S-2, these are the silver crossbars; part number RRRLKVA, and these are the 2500 Series legs for the Vortex Aero Crossbars; and part number DK381, and this is the custom fit kit for your Ultima that clamps it on to your vehicle. Now, we already have the front on installed, and you can see that it has this nice aerodynamic shape to the bar itself, and that coupled with the rubber strip on the top here will actually cut down the wind noise and drag while you're driving. It is lockable, so once you actually attach both crossbars to your vehicle, it is secured to your vehicle as well. Now, the combined weight capacity for both bars is 165 pounds, although you always want to double-check with your owner's manual to make sure your roof can withstand that kind of weight. Also, these do come in black as part number RRVA126FB-2. All right, let's go ahead and show you how the rear one goes on. We already have it partially assembled on our table, here. We'll go ahead and take our 2500 Series leg, and we'll actually slide it into our track here with this metal bracket, here. It'll just slide in like so, and then we're going to go ahead and do a couple of measurements here to determine the spacing between this edge here and our leg. Normally, you would have measuring strips that you would cut to length, put them in there so it's more of a permanent application, but for demonstration purposes, we'll just go ahead and measure it out. You can find these measurements in your instructions.


Inno Roof Rack Review - 2017 Nissan Altima

Today in our 2017 Nissan Altima, we're going to be test fitting the Inno Roof Rack System, consisting of part numbers INB127, these are the Inno square crossbars, 50 inches long; part number INSU-K5, these are the Inno feet for the square crossbars for naked roofs; and part number INK625, this is the custom fit kit for this particular vehicle. The Inno Roof Rack is great for carrying a wide variety of accessories ranging from bike racks to cargo baskets to enclosed cargo boxes to ski carriers to some water sport carriers. The bars are nice and sturdy and have a carrying capacity of 220 pounds, although you always want to double check with your vehicle's manual to make sure your roof can stand that amount of weight. Now that we've gone over some of the features of the roof rack, let's go ahead and show you how it installs. We have a front one installed already and we had the rear one partially assembled. This is basically what we're going to get with your roof rack kit here. We'll have the foot, the pad, and the actual clamp itself that goes around, plus these two pieces which fit onto the foot as well. First off, we'll go ahead and place our foot on the end of our square bar here. You see that it has a square opening, however you have to push the bolt here down.


Yakima Roof Rack Review - 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek

Today in our 2014 Subaru XT Crosstrek, we're going to be test fitting the Yakima roof-rack system, consisting of part number Y00408. These are the 48-inch crossbars. Part number Y03536, and these are the round-bar SL adapter kits for the Yakima Baseline, Skyline, and Timberline, and Ridgeline towers, and part number Y00147. These are the Timberline towers for Yakima crossbars, specifically for the raised factory side rails. The Yakima roof-rack system is great for carrying a wide variety of accessories on your roof, ranging from bike racks to cargo baskets, to cargo boxes, to water-sport carriers, such as for Kayaks and canoes. To carry these items on your roof, you have two very strong and durable crossbars that have a carrying capacity of 220 pounds, although always double check with your vehicle's manual to make sure your vehicle can withstand that weight on its roof. This is very easy to install. It simply wraps around the factory raised side rails of your vehicle, and can fit multiple cars with these factory side rails.


Yakima Roof Rack Review - 2017 Ram 1500

Today on our 2017 RAM 1500 we'll be taking a look at the Yakima Roof Rack. This is consisting of the Yakima Jet Stream Cross Bars, part number Y00426, the Yakima Baseline Towers, part number Y000146, and the Yakima Base Clip Fit Kits for our RAM 1500, using part number Y06135. The Yakima Roof Rack Fit Kit allows you to carry any roof rack accessories on your vehicle's roof, whether that's bike racks, cargo baskets, cargo boxes, or water sport accessories. The cross bars themselves are an aerodynamic shape, so they're going to be quiet, reduce wind noise and drag. They also come with weather strips to help keep dirt, debris, and liquid out of your cross bars. It's going to provide a little bit of extra cushion and allow you to carry channel mounted accessories. The weight capacity of this kit is 165 pounds, though you do want to check your vehicle's owner's manual to make sure it can withstand that much weight. The cross bars themselves are 60" long, though you can get longer or shorter bars, you just want to make sure that they don't extend out past your vehicle's side view mirrors.


Yakima Roof Rack Installation - 2016 Dodge Dart

Today on our 2016 Dodge Dart we'll be taking a look at the Yakima Roof Rack Kit. This consists of the Yakima JetStream Crossbars, part number Y00425, the BaseLine Towers, part number Y00146, and two sets of base clip fit kits, first one is part number Y06118 for the front, and part number Y06123 for the back. The Yakima Rook Rack Kit will allow you to carry many different vehicle accessories on your vehicle's roof rack system, whether that's bike racks, cargo boxes, cargo baskets, or ski and snowboard carriers. The JetStream Crossbars are an aerodynamic design which will reduce wind noise and drag and allow you to carry vehicle accessories, whether they're clamp-on or channel mounted accessories. The whole kit has a quick and easy installation, we'll show you how to do that next. Now everything that you see here on our table is included with our kit, the only thing you'll need to provide yourself is a flat tape measure of some sort. We have our BaseLine Foot Pack here, our end cap for our Crossbar, our fit kit for the back bar, our adapters to connect our Foot Pack to our Crossbar, and then our included tool that's going to help us tighten everything down.

They both have very similar crossbar designs and features but the Rhino-Rack has...

  • 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...

  • 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).

  • 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...

Most of the Thule roof-mounted racks that use clamps like the Circuit XT, # TH526XT 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.

  • 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...
