I have a 2002 Suzuki XL-7 that only has one bar on each side going front to back. Does the mounting hardware work on this type of factory roof rack.
asked by: Roger
You have side rails on your 2002 Suzuki XL-7. To mount the Curt basket, # C18115, you will need to add crossbars that run from side to side. For a basket that will fit the factory side rails without adding anything else, you can use the Surco Safari Rack, # SPS4560-1101. This rack will clamp to the side rails on the vehicle.
If you want to go with the Curt basket and add crossbars, you will need Thule Crossroads system # TH45050. This system also fits around the factory side rails and provides crossbars to mount the basket. I have included a link showing a typical installation of the roof rack and a link to the instructions for the Curt basket.
