Today on our 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, we're going to be doing a test fit of the Thule Traverse Roof Rail System. If you look up here, we do have it mounted into the gutter. This is the gutter style raised roof rack. This is going to be part number THLB58 and then the foot pack and pedestal is going to be TH300. We'll show you how it all goes together, how it looks and fits once it's complete. Again this is going to be THLB58 and this is going to be TH300. We already have one of them in place here on the end.
I'll show you how to put it on. It is really simple and easy to use. Let's turn this. I'll stick this end on. As you can see, once you tighten it down on the vehicle is when it's actually going to lock your bar in place by making it some sort of a vice.
When you clamp it down, it's going to put pressure on it and actually hold it into place. Slide it on and get it in the general vicinity of where we want it. That's going to be equal to the cross bar spread and over hang or excuse me, the over hang of our front ones. So in the general area, and then when we get up there we'll kind of critique it and get it right where it needs to be. Next, we are going to put on the little foot and clamp. This is going to be what goes underneath of your drip rail.
It actually pull down which is going to create that vice motion. You are taking and putting your bolt on the back side like so. Take and place your bracket on. Then, we'll place your wing nut or excuse me not the wing nut but the washer and then the end nut. We are going to leave that loose so that we have lots of motion with it and also note that there are end caps that you can put on your little key locks here, if you decide to get that with the kit. All right let's move that out of the way and get this put on the back of the vehicle.
I'm going to open up the back doors and set it into place. I'm going to guide it over. It should be pretty close there. Next, I'm going to get my cross bar spread which we are going to do 27.5 because that's going to fit a lot of our other applications. What I am doing is I'm just going to go from center of the bar or you can go from the edge of the bar to the edge of the bar, however you decide to do it. There's where we need to be with this side. And, right there's where we need to be with this other side. Now what we're going to do is we're going to tighten down the ends evenly. By what I mean evenly is we'll get it right underneath the edge by threading this in. We'll get that right underneath the bottom side here of your drip rail and the top of your door frame. Once it's there making contact, we'll start alternating sides that way it will tighten down evenly. I'm going to do 5 turns or 10, whatever you decide to do per side and just move back across. The last one here and then we're going to place in the end cap. It simply slides in and pushes into place just like so. Close up our doors and you are ready to hit the road with your all new Thule Traverse Roof Rack System part number THLB58 and TH300 on our 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. .

The Cross Bars and Foot Pack mounted with a bit of difficulty on our 2013 Ford Flex. We had some trouble getting the feet properly aligned on the existing front-to-back rails, as the rails on the Flex are large and uniquely designed. Still, the cross bars and feet are mounted, and we're ready to load our Kayaks. The cross bars and feet are very well made, so we anticipate no issues while traveling. The single issue that disturbs us is the Thule hex wrench end-caps wouldn't lock into place, and we were worried each might pop off while on the road. Our only solution was to place thin strips of Gorilla tape on each to prevent the four from popping off while on the road. 280448
The LB are very well built and sturdy. My set up with the bars, feet, and two sidearm bike holders is quite heavy. It is difficult to lift the whole thing off the top of my truck cap by myself. I would have considered the aero bars had I thought weight was going to be an issue. At least I think they are lighter. Overall very happy with my setup. Etrailer was excellent, great prices, quick and efficient service. 12336

The roof rack I ordered for my husband was what he wanted for Christmas. He wanted to mount fishing pole holders on the crossbars so when he goes fishing with his buddies he does not have to stuff his poles inside his Jeep Rubicon. I really don't understand why he needed them, but this is what he wanted, the old saying of needing and wanting. He was mounting them yesterday to make sure they fit, he was so happy, now we will have to wait till we go up to our summer home in Utah to use them. I also ordered a pole holder from Cabella's which mounts on the bar, it looks real good. 29178

This is my fourth set of Thule racks. I purchased a new car and had to change designs again. These racks are a must have for anyone who uses their vehicle for biking, water sports, snow sports, camping, transporting wood, etc. Also, I have been super impressed with e-trailer. If they carry something, I don't even consider purchasing it elsewhere. Their customer service is amazing, shipping is fast, and their prices are usually the best. Their install videos are helpful for their products too. 129529
Works great. I put them farther back than recommended in the instructions for my specific vehicle so the spacing between bars was greater. Once I got the placement where I wanted them, I unistalled and cut off the excess tube then reinstalled. I replaced all the little plastic tightning nuts with real nuts and washers. I keep the rails and bike holders all together as one unit. I take the entire assembly on and off the vehicle as needed as one unit. 183284
You have to buy the end caps separately! They are a must have to avoid increased wind noise while driving, avoid dirt inside bars and to cover up the cut steel. I ordered these to put together the discontinued Thule Tracker 2 roof rack. They feel sturdy and look great, and fit snug with tracker 2 foot pack. The coating material is also soft enough that it won't scratch items being loaded onto them. I'd still suggest getting pads, though! 217365

No one should need more than twenty minutes to assemble this roof rack. If you're good mechanically, it'll be less than ten minutes. Excellent design, intuitive assembly -- it doesn't get much better than this. 111827

This product produces wind noise when travelling above 25 mph. The crossbars extend several inches beyond the outer edge of the car as if it were not taylor made for this car. In fact, the directions made specific reference to Ford and I specifically ordered this for a 2014 Jeep Cherokee. Very much disappointed with the product. 162953
I am happy to receive the above product BUT....it should have been part of my original order. There is no way I could have ordered the feet and connectors to my vehicle without this attachment. NO WAY!!!! In the end I received all parts needed to install the roof rack on my truck and I am very happy to have them..... 47407

Etrailer delivered my Thule bars, feet and gutter adapters promptly. Although I have not yet installed the hardware, it looks like it will work and fit my 86 4Runner. Customer service informed me every step of the purchase and delivery process. Oh yeah, and the set was $36.00 cheaper than Amazon! Thank you very much. 47303

The rack came earlier than expected and undamaged. It was just as described. Due to a surgery I just had I have be unable to put it on my Jeep, but the way everything has gone so far with etrailer and their customer service I expect I will have no problems and plan I doing more business in the future with them. 132985
The bars look to be stutdy and good quality. I must say that I recieved a previously opened box, and these bars were not brand new. Somebody greased them slightly, put them back in the box and taped it up. I do not appreciate that and this will be the last time we purchase anything from etrailer. 208912

etrailer is fabulous! I ordered Thule roof rack kit for my honda. Their service is great. I was emailed after I placed my order with a link to track my delivery. Then the day it was dropped off at my house I was sent an email confirming it was just delivered. I wil order from them again. 40251
The thule bars have proved to be an excellent choice for my SUP carrier. Also, the advice I received from the support staff was a big Help. Their product knowledge helped me make the right decision for my Subaru wagon. I highly recommend etrailer based upon price and service... Larry 159207
had to order new 58" Thule load bars as the 50" ones I had no longer fit my new vehicle. Very easy to work with eTrailer, great follow-up from the rep (George J) and they arrived on a timely basis. I would use etrailer again and will recommend them to anyone. 235095

Overall I am satisfied with the roof rack although I think it is overpriced. The instructions, if you want to call them that, are horrific. I had to just figure out how to piece the parts together by trial and error. 31707
Excellent product. I buy from etrailer and have always enjoyed the experience. Excellent communication and personal attention to your needs. And products are quality items priced well. Thank you. 301260

I've had a Thule rack system on 3 of my last 4 vehicles. Mostly used for hauling the canoes. They are tough and durable and I would recommend a Thule rack to anyone looking for a rack system. 295425
