Video Transcript for Thule WingBar Evo Crossbars Installation - 2016 Nissan Frontier

Today in our 2016 Nissan Frontier, we're going to be doing a test fit on the Thule Evo WingBar roof rack system for naked roofs for the Nissan Frontier. This Thule Evo WingBar roof rack system is going to allow you to carry roof mount accessories on your Nissan Frontier. Things like bike racks, kayak carriers, cargo baskets, and much more. That way it'll free up space for our truck bed. It's designed specifically to work with your Nissan Frontiers naked roof. With it in place, you can see that there's no movement so you can rest assured your accessories will be safe.

It features aerodynamic aluminum roof bars, you can pick these up on either black or silver right here at etrailer.com. Now these are going to be a lot quieter than your traditional round or square bars. It'll help eliminate some of that wind noise or that drag when we're heading down the road.It'll work with your standard clamp on accessories as well as your T-slot accessories. Will simply pivot that end cap to the side and rather than having to remove that rubber strip or take it out and trim it, we can just slide that inaudible 00:01:10 right through the center and position it anywhere we want inside that bar. The crossbars are held in place by four Thule Evo feet.

These are going to set them up roughly three and an eighth of an inch from the top of the roof to the underside of the bar. That way we're going to have more than enough room for those clamp on accessories to grab a hold of the bar without them making contact with the roof. Now the Evo feet are padded here where they make contact with the roof. That way they won't harm or scratch that finish.If you look underneath the cover here, you can see that it's going to protect our hardware from the elements. It's also going to deter theft.

That way no one's going to tamper with it or try and take it off of our frontiers roof. Now the bolt that tightens it to our frontiers roof is right through here and the tool is included. Now with my door open, you can see how the clip comes down and attaches to the inside of the frame here. Now these clips are specifically designed to work with your frontiers so you can see how they're going to match the molding of the inside of the door and then we can replace our weatherstripping and our doors going to shut this fine. Again, that cover is going to protect all of that so no one can remove it and if we'd like to, we can replace the plastic lock cores with the Thule metal inaudible 00:02:26 cores to add more security.

That way nobody can get it on there and remove that.Now this roof rack system does have a weight capacity of 220 pounds. This is a step up compared to some other roof rack systems. We're going to be able to carry a lot more accessories with this one. You do however want to check with your frontiers owner's manual to see if your roof can support that much weight. I've already got my front crossbar in place. We need to set up the rear. Let's go ahead and do it together. I've got one side ready to go, we just need to prepare the other side. The first thing we'll do is we'll take our Evo clamp foot and we'll assemble this. So what we can do is we can take off the door here, you'll need to make sure it's unlocked first, so the lock needs to be returned to the horizontal position. Then we can just pick up on it slightly and then pull out just like that. We'll set that aside, then we can turn it over and we can grab our rubber pad.Now, they are all numbered. The front and rear pads are different, so you need to look at your instructions and make sure that you have the correct one. For our rear crossbar, we need to be sure we have number five, two, five. Now they only install one way, you simply just line it up with the way it looks on the bottom of the foot and then press it in place. Now surrounding the pad, it just has a little lip that will snap into the bottom of the plastic portion here. So just look over it and make sure that it is clipped in place. Once you think you've got it, give it a good pull, make sure it's not coming off. If it is, just give it another good squeeze and then you should have it. Now from here we can grab our actual clamp. Now these two are also numbered. You can find that right here on the underside. For our rear crossbar, we're looking for 342. It's going to be located again right here. Then we can take it, push it in place, and we're going to be listening for like a slight click.Once it's done that we can pull it out and make sure it's in there. If you have it in there, it shouldn't come out, so you'll be able to move around like this. Now we're ready to slide it onto our crossbar. We can go ahead and turn our crossbar open. Before we actually install our foot onto our channel underneath, we need to set our scale. Per our instructions, we need to set it to 45 so it's numbered. You don't have to worry about seeing this, you're going to be able to see it on yours. I'm going to go ahead and set mine to 45 and the numbers get larger this direction. So just set it to where you can see the 45 and then you're ready to slide it in place. So as I'd mentioned, the foot slides onto the channel here.The way you slide it in place is, you'll need to unlock the brakes on the inside of the foot here. So you can see the two metal pieces here we want to do is take a thumb on both and push. You can see how it moves like this. We'll get it lined up, press in, and then it will allow us to slide it in place. We're going to slide it all the way on until the foot makes contact with the scale here. Then we've got the correct measurement. From here we can install our end cap and we're ready to set it in place on our frontier. Now we want to be sure that our doors are opened up and then we can gently set it in place in the general area. Now for the next part will need to draw down the weather seal around the inside of our doorframes so we can actually just pull down and we're going to be right in this area here, so let's go and do that for both sides.Now the next thing we need to do is take a measurement from the front of our cross bar here to the front of the crossbar here. That will give us our placement for the rear bar. But before we do that, let's talk about how we got the position for our front crossbar. So per our instructions, we take a measurement from our windshield and measure up to the foot pack here. Most of the time you take a measurement from the corner of the windshield, but for the frontier, you need to do it more towards the center of the windshield. You can see how it kind of arches downward. That's going to cause the crossbar to move further forward and that's what we want. We want to take a measurement from more of the center of the windshield that will mark out your line for where your foot pack is going to be. If we we're to measure it from the corner, it would cause it to go back and it would throw off the whole rear bar. So again, just be sure you measure up from the center of the windshield to the end of the foot pack.So now that being said, let's go ahead and grab our measurement for the placement of our rear crossbar. From the front to the front, we're looking at about 27 and a half inches. For our instructions, we'll be sure and do that for both sides. So I'm going to pull down that weather stripping just to make sure it's out of the way and what we want to do is make sure that clamp hooks on to the bottom of the frame here. So I'm actually just pushing up in place with my thumb. I'm going to hold it there. Then I'll take my included tool and take up some of that slack. That way the hook stays there. Now when we feel that resistance, we can stop and then move over to the other side and do the same thing. Once we've taken that slack out of both sides, then we can begin tightening them down. Now as we're doing this, we want to be sure we're alternating side to side. That way it makes it nice and even on both sides.Then once you get it to where it's almost tightened down all the way, our included tool is unique in that it will click when it's properly torqued down. So once we get it to where it's almost tight, just listen for that audible click. Once everything's all tightened up, we can go ahead and put on our cover, make sure it snaps in place, we'll walk it up, and then let's not forget to replace our weather stripping and then we can close up the door and we're all set. With everything installed, we're ready to load up our favorite roof mount and accessory and hit the road. But that's going to complete our test fit of the Thule Evo WingBar roof rack system for naked roofs on our 2016 Nissan Frontier.

Ask the Experts about this Thule Roof Rack

  • Recommended Half Roof Rack for 2017 Nissan Frontier
    For your 2017 Nissan Frontier 4 door, the Thule bar you will want is not able to be separated into a half kit. It is simply # TH711420, # TH710501, and # TH145160. My recommendation for you is to instead use Rhino-Rack # RRVA137B, # RRRLKVAH, and # DK108F. This also comes with the locks to secure the half rack to your roof.

  • Recommended Square Bar Roof Rack for a 2016 Nissan Frontier King Cab
    I do have an option for you but the Rhino-Rack 2500 Roof Rack System will not fit your 2016 Nissan Frontier with the king cab. Instead, I recommend using the Thule Square Load Bar System which is composed of the crossbars part # TH712400, part # TH710501, and part # TH145160. Though the Thule system will be less cost effective, the quality in design will be superior. This is actually the only square bar roof rack system we have for your vehicle with a bare roof.

  • Ladder Rack and Roof Rack Combination for a 2012 Nissan Frontier
    Although the Erickson Truck Bed Ladder Rack # EM07705 isn't available as half of the ladder rack, you could just use one of the uprights with a roof rack like you suggested. The Thule kit that you are wanting for your 2012 Nissan Frontier consists of the 47" SquareBars # TH712200, Evo Clamp Feet # TH710501, and Fit Kit # TH145160 if you have a naked roof.
