Video Transcript for Thule Pulse Alpine Rooftop Cargo Box Review - 2014 Dodge Journey

Today on our 2014 Dodge Journey, well be test fitting the Thule Pulse Alpine Roof Top Cargo Box, measuring 11 cubic feet in matte black, part number TH613. Please keep in mind that this box opens from one side only, so for our video today, well be setting it towards the passenger side for easier accessibility. With the Thule rapid crossroad roof rack system on our vehicle, well begin our test fit by placing the Thule Pulse Alpine directly onto our load bars. Well go ahead and open the box and place our feet through the appropriate slots making sure that they go around to each load bar. Once we have all four feet in place, we can make our way around and use a hand knob to tighten each one down. With all four of feet tight, our box is secured and were ready to go. Here at the rear, you can see that we have full access to our rear hatch without making contact with the rear of our box.

That completes todays test fit of the Thule Pulse Alpine Roof Top Cargo Box, part number TH613, on our 2014 Dodge Journey. .

Great product. Great company. Reasonable delivery time. Would do business with e-trailer again! Thanks 602434

- TH613

Great rack. Low profile fits on Toyota Highlander into standard height garage. Stays on all winter for skis plus a couple times throughout the year for other trips. Fits at least four pairs of skis. 601609

- TH613

Perfect for vehicles with limited space between bike carriers for mounting. This was the narrowest clam shell I could find. Fits 2 inflatable stand up paddle boards plus more. The only tricky thing with this unit was figuring out how to change the lock core (it's a different process than other Thule products) to match my other locks on the vehicle, but the etrailer video on this topic came to the rescue. 544286

- TH613

Love the low profile.= less wind resistance and better mpg. Lock keeps valuables safe and dry. Exactly what I wanted. 438517

  • Thule Roof Cargo Box for 2011 Honda CR-V with Factory Crossbars to Carry 4 Pair of Skis
  • I suggest the Thule Pulse Alpine, part # TH613, for your 2011 Honda CR-V. It's confirmed by Thule to fit the factory crossbars and can hold 4 to 6 pairs of skis that are up to 210 cm long. The overall weight capacity is 110 pounds. The Pulse Alpine also includes locks. I've linked a video review for you to take a look at as well.

  • Lo Profile Cargo Box Options for a 2006 Toyota Highlander with Factory Roof Rack
  • So basically you want to keep the overall height of the 2006 Highlander including the cargo box under 7 feet tall. If the height of the vehicle itself is 5 feet 9 inches tall then that leaves 15 inches to work with. Like you said you could use the SkyBox Lo, # Y07338, since it is 11-1/2 inches tall. You could also use: Thule Pulse Alpine, # TH613, at 12-1/2 inches tall Inno Wedge, # INBRM660BK or # INBRM660WH, at 11 inches tall Inno Shadow, # INBRA1150BK, at 11-3/4 inches tall Inno...

  • Fishing Rod Carrier for a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • Carrying fishing poles in a roof box is almost identical to carrying skis, in that you're looking at the internal measurements of the box. The Thule Pulse Alpine, pat # TH613, measures 84-1/2 inches long internally so it would be ideal for you. It also includes locks which is great because security is one of the main advantages you get from going with a box. The Inno Fishing Rod Carrier, part # INIF3, will be limited to the overall length of the vehicle. The rack installs into the...

  • How to Carry Cargo on Crossbars With a 50 Inch Spread
  • There is a way for you to carry cargo on crossbars that have a 50 inch spread but rooftop cargo boxes like the Thule Pulse Alpine # TH613 or Inno Wedge 660 # INBRM660BK cannot be modified to accommodate a spread of that size. The reason for that is they use sliding clamps to adjust to different crossbar spreads so you would not be able to drill holes to allow those clamps to work properly. There are cargo boxes that use U-bolts to attach but none that have the proper length and shape to...

  • Thule Cargo Box Recommendation that Allows Rear Hatch to Open
  • To determine if the Thule Pulse Alpine Roof Cargo Box part # TH613 will allow the rear hatch of your 2017 Subaru Outback Wagon with factory crossbars to open will require you to take one simple measurement. You will need to measure from the center of the front crossbar back to the seam on the hatch. If that distance is greater than 55-1/4 inches this box will allow the rear door to open. We had a customer with a similar 2015 Subaru Outback tell us that the distance they have there was 51...

  • Comparing the Thule Pulse and Force Alpine Cargo Boxes for an Audi A4
  • The Thule Pulse Alpine cargo box # TH613 is the new economy, entry-level box. It opens on one side only, is constructed of durable ABS plastic, and has easy-grip mounting feet that mount in about 5 minutes. The Force XT, # TH6356B, is a step up from the Pulse. It features a diamond textured aeroskin for added durability. It is more sleek and aerodynamic. This box uses tool-free quick-grip mounting feet. The lid opens on either side. The Pulse is 11 cubic feet and 88-1/2 inches long whereas...

  • Can a Thule Pulse Alpine Cargo Box be Mounted to Round Yakima Crossbars
  • A Thule cargo box like # TH613, will fit on Yakima round crossbars. Usually, on a cargo box page, in the specs section we will list compatibility. For the Ascent 1100, it fits Thule standard, Rapid Aero, AeroBlade and Xsporter load bars; Yakima bars; and most factory-installed luggage racks. Also make sure to check the owners manual for the capacity of the roof and do not exceed it.

  • Best Crossbars Factory or Aftermarket to Mount Thule Pulse Alpine Cargo Box on a Ford Explorer
  • The Thule Pulse Alpine cargo box # TH613 is designed to fit round, square, aero, elliptical and most factory crossbars so it does fit well on all of those. There are some exclusions though so I would need to know the year of your Ford Explorer to determine if the box fits the factory or dealer bars. The best fit is going to be on Thule bars since they are testing primarily on their bars so that doesn't mean the box will not fit well on other bars too. I did check on a 2014 Ford Explorer...

  • Which Thule Roof Box Will Allow Rear hatch To Open Fully On 2015 Toyota 4Runner
  • To make sure a roof box allows you to open the rear hatch fully, you can take a quick measurement. Move your front crossbar forward as far as it will go and measure from the center of the crossbar back to the seam between the roof and the rear hatch. That is called 'Front Clearance'. I have attached a chart that gives you the front clearance requirement for the Thule roof boxes we offer. For example, the Thule Alpine, part # TH613 needs a front clearance of 55-1/4 inches. And will fit...

Thule has confirmed that the mounting hardware for these boxes will fit well on the Expedition's crossbars. You won't need additional mounting hooks or brackets to install these boxes on your vehicle. You mentioned that you already have factory bars. If they are the crossbars, then you are ready to go.

  • Will the Thule Pulse Alpine Cargo Box fit on 2012 Toyota Highlander with Factory Roof Rack
  • I checked with Thule and the Pulse Alpine cargo box # TH613 will fit the factory roof rack on your 2012 Toyota Highlander BUT it is too long to avoid interference with the rear hatch. For a long cargo box that will work and not interfere with the hatch you can use the Hyper # TH612.

  • Thule Pulse Alpine Roof Mounted Cargo Box for 2008 Honda CRV
  • The Thule Pulse Alpine Roof Mounted Black Cargo Box would be a fit for your 2008 Honda CRV, but the length of the box would cause some interference with the hatch, which would prevent you from opening the hatch fully. If you need to carry long objects like skis, and the fact that you will need to be careful opening the hatch does not bother you, the Pulse Alpine would work for you. The Thule Pulse Medium, part # TH614 is actually a bit larger at 14 cubic feet, but it is short enough...

  • Will Thule Cargo Box # TH613 Fit 2013 Volkswagen Jetta With Factory Crossbars
  • In order to make sure you choose a roof box that will work on your 2013 Volkswagen Jetta, you will need to take a measurement. You will need to know the crossbar spread, or the distance from center to center of the crossbars on you roof. For the Thule Pulse Alpine Rooftop Cargo Box, part # TH613, the minimum crossbar spacing is 23-5/8 inches and the maximum spacing is 35-3/4 inches. If your crossbar spread is between those numbers, the # TH613 will work well for you. I have attached...

  • Recommendation to Replace Older Thule Summit Rooftop Cargo Box

Although a bit wider and just a tad shorter, the closest current equivalent from Thule is with the Thule Pulse Alpine Rooftop Cargo Box # TH613. This is a really nice cargo box that measures 88-1/2 inches long, 25-1/2 inches wide, and 12-1/2 inches tall. It provides 11 cubic feet of carrying capacity...

  • Thule Roof Cargo Box Compatibility With 2007 Nissan Xterra Factory Crossbars

Every other model like the Hyper # TH612, the Force # TH6357B, the Pulse Alpine # TH613, and the Motion # TH6297B are confirmed to fit according to Thule. There are not wider mounts for most units. Let me know what you have and I'll be happy to see if your specific model has any wider mount, but most do not.

  • Will the Thule Pulse Alpine Cargo Box Interfere with the Rear Hatch on a 2014 Subaru Forester
  • I spoke to my contact at Thule and she told me that the best way for you to determine if you have enough clearance would be to open the hatch on your 2014 Subaru Forester and measure from the crossbar back to the nearest portion of the hatch. If that distance is greater than 26 inches then the Thule Pulse Alpine Rooftop Cargo Box # TH613 should fit without interference. The reason for this is that when the rear mounting bracket is slid into the rear-most position it measures 26 inches...

  • How to Determine Which Cargo Boxes Fit a 2010 Subaru Forester without Hatch Interference
  • It all depends on the box and the roof rack on the vehicle. SportRack does not provide fit information on the Horizon cargo box, # SR7011. Thule and Yakima do provide a way to determine if a box will fit without hatch interference. The first thing you will do is, if the crossbars on the vehicle can be moved, move the front bar as far forward as you can. Then measure from the center of that bar straight back to the seam between the roof and the top of the rear hatch. If that measurement...

The 16-cubic-foot Yakima Skybox 16 # Y07335 that you referenced is 15-inchs tall. You can check hatch clearance by moving your front crossbar as far forward as possible and measuring from its center back to the roof/hatch seam.

  • Cargo Boxes That Will Clear Rear Hatch of 2011 Subaru Outback

If the distance from the middle of your rear roof crossbar is more than 24 inches, you will have sufficient clearance to open the lift gate. Yakima provides their clearance information in a different manner. They recommend you slide the front crossbar all the way forward (if it is moveable) and measure rearward to the hatch/roof seam.

You can use the linked page to select which you have and you'll then see the rack options for that roof type.

  • How Much Height Above Crossbar Does Thule Alpine Rooftop Cargo Box Add
  • You have a keen eye because the Thule Pulse Alpine Rooftop Cargo Box # TH613 is recessed; I checked with Thule and this cargo box will add 11.3 inches of height above your crossbar, making it one of the lowest-profile rooftop cargo boxes on the market. Aside from its low-profile the Pulse Alpine is also among the easiest cargo boxes to handle because it weighs just 30 lbs. It is simple to use with mounting hardware that you only need to tighten with hand knobs and even locks to keep...

  • Recommended Roof Box For 2011 Subaru Outback With Limited Space Above Roof Rack
  • I called my contact at Thule and asked about the roof boxes and where the measurement is made in the description. They told me that the measurement is made as if the box was sitting on a flat table to the highest point on the cargo box. From the measurement you said you have for clearance from the top of your roof rack on your Outback, the Thule Pulse, part # TH613 would be too tall. You would need a box that has a shorter measurement.

If this is the case, I have a solution for you, but the Thule Pulse Alpine # TH613 will not work for your roof rack's 36 inch crossbar spread.
