Video Transcript for Thule AeroBlade Traverse Roof Rack Installation - 2017 Dodge Durango

Today on our 2017 Dodge Durango, we'll be taking a look at and showing you how to install the Thule Roof Rack System. 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 Durango, part number: THKIT1616. The Thule Aeroblade Crossbars are going to be a great solution for carrying your vehicle accessories on your roof. The aerodynamic shape of our bars helps to reduce wind, noise and drag. The weatherstrip on the inside is going to help to prevent dirt, debris and liquid from getting inside your bars. We can also remove that, cut it down and insert channel-mounted accessories. For our foot pack, if we knock out this plastic piece here, we can insert the Thule One-Key System Lock Core. That's going to prevent any theft or tampering of our roof rack system.

We can open that up, you'll see our bolt on the inside there. We can actually take our included tool, insert our tool and store it inside our foot pack; though, I do suggest you only do that when you have a lock core, so no one can take your roof rack system off of your vehicle. The Thule Fit Kit is going to consist of the rubber pad and the clamp with the rubber coating. This is going to prevent any scratches or abrasions from our fit kit to our vehicle. It's also going to be custom-fit to our vehicle to give a nice secure fit. The roof rack system does have a 165-pound weight capacity, but you do want to double-check your vehicle's owner's manual to make sure it can withstand that much weight. Get a lifetime warranty on all the parts to our roof rack system and it's quick and easy to install.

We'll show you how to do that now. Everything that you see here on our table is what's included with our kit. We have two crossbars. We've got four of our foot packs. We've got four of each of these, our clamp with our fit kit and the rubber pad, as well. Then we have four end caps for our crossbars.

We'll get an included tool to tighten everything down, and we've provided our own flat-tape measure just to measure out our crossbar spread. Here we have our foot pack, we're just going to start by opening this door here. We'll grab the clamp from our fit kit, slide it underneath this metal bar here and slide it up until it snaps underneath our two gray pieces. We can close our cover and flip that over. We'll take our pad for our fit kit, and we're just going to squeeze it until it secures the bottom. Now, we're ready to load this up onto our crossbar. We've gone ahead and measured out with our scale to 53, you will get that measurement in your instructions.

We'll just open this back door here, so that's going to loosen up the square knot on the bottom. We'll slide that on, up until the notch and close up that door. Now, we can open our doors on our vehicle and get ready to load up our crossbar. We'll take our crossbar and gently set it across our vehicle, making sure that our clamps fit around our door jamb and adjusting them as we need to. Now, we'll measure out our crossbar spread; again, those measurements will be in your instructions. We'll do the same thing to the other side. Now, we'll take our included tool and start to tighten down the bolt in the center. You're going to tighten this up evenly on each side. Once we have it completely tightened down, we can either take our included tool and leave it in there, which I suggest if you have that lock core; if not, we'll close up the cover, close up our vehicle door and we'll place on our end cap. Now, we're ready to load up our accessories and hit the road. That's going to be our completed look at the Thule Roof Rack System on our 2017 Dodge Durango.

I installed the Thule TH480R for my roof rack on a 2003 Toyota Tacoma Doublecab Prerunner. Fitment was perfect and the installation instructions were good. I use it to secure a kayak on the roof.

Etrailer helped me out of a jam as I could not find the Thule parts I needed. They not only had the parts but got them to me in a few days! Made my trip to Lake Placid possible! Fantastic communication and customer service.

The whole experience was freakin awesome. * Ordered on-line, delivered when promised, all packages were in excellent condition, and all parts were accounted for - no shortages, THANK YOU! * The Thule roof rack design, quality of materials, comprehensive instructions were really impressive. Everything went together without a hitch and really looks good installed. * We plan on carrying our 12 1/2' SUP's on the roof rack when we head out to the lakes. * It saves us time as our SUP's are inflatable, however it takes a bit of time to pump them up once we get there. Now it's just loosen them up and we're ready to go. Great job etrailer, I would definitely buy more products from your organization!!


Comments
Fantastic, even though we have a full size truck with a cap on it, the ability to carry large, odd shaped things is awesome, roof rack is sturdy, has never come loose, and is relatively quiet at all driving speeds. Received many compliments as well from other truck owners who seem interested in installing a roof rack. Thanks again for an awesome product

The Traverse Feet are well designed, ruggedly built, and straightforward to install. However, though the One-Touch levers on the inside of each foot are easy to open, they require some muscle to lock into place. Also, according to stage 7 (p. 13) of the assembly instructions, the tension bolt "will stop when completely loose," but mine decoupled. However, Teresa J, kindly recommended finding the opening at the back of the foot from which you can see the tension bolt and easily rethread it to the securing nut. I found the best way to do this was to turn the whole assemblage upside down and use a strong flashlight.

The transverse foot is the most complicated, and most important, part of the rack system, but was simple to assemble and install. I spent about an hour with assembly and installation of the complete system, and I wasn't in any hurry. The feet provide a solid interface between my car and the rack, and the rubber pads protect the car finish. The AccuTight tool is especially helpful because it provides a torque indicator to ensure proper tightening of the foot bracket. The tool remains inserted in the foot after installation, with a tool for each side of the vehicle. The feet contribute to the overall beauty of the rack system by their smooth contour.

2006 Mini Cooper

I bought this with the mini cooper 2006 package. I had looked around locally and got some quotes for a rack for my girlfriends 06 mini, and I was getting prices over 850 dollars for the complete package. There were 650 with shipping (I chose the expedited) and arrived in 3 days, which is really fast where I live. The racks fit and I was able to find an installation video from the etrailer youtube website which was very helpful. From what I heard from the locals shops they stopped producing this set so if you have a mini cooper thats 06 and earlier this is the one to grab while they still have them in stock. We did have to adjust the back measurements a bit from what the manual said and it was a bit tough to work the back mounts into place but after some work the racks look great and are very sturdy!

I got a complete Aerobar kit for my 2009 F150 SuperCrew and really appreciated that eTrailer packaged the bars, feet and fit kit all in one deal so that there was no chance of getting the wrong items. Service was quick and the system went together well and works great on my truck. I couldn’t be happier!

Used on top of an F450 to carry a kayak. Easy to install. I'd suggest going to U Tube to see excellent instructions. Once set up, it takes just minutes to install.

Have been using the carrier for our kayak as we pull a 5th wheel trailer across the country. It performs well. I am 65 and not as strong as I used to be yet I can slide the kayak into the mounts with little trouble. The rack is stable on the roof even in 40 mph winds.

2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Got a 2020 Grand Cherokee with the black metal roof side rails. I had planned on using the 60" Aerobars with the 460R pedestals, but oddly the bar didn't have long enough mounting points. So after talking with these folks, I opted for the 480R instead. While they 'technically' worked, the rack sat way in front of the factory rails. I did a LOT of talking with Thule and others and finally opted to get the 69" Probars. They work with the 460R pedestals, fit into the factory side rails and while I did have to get them cut down to 60", have enough room for everything I need to mount. So, my only compliant is that both Thule and etrailer don't seem to have the Probars listed as an option for the Grand Cherokee. They are the best option, especially if you have a Hullivator. And they look great!

2014 Volvo S60

We ordered the entire Thule AeroBlade system a year ago for our 2014 Volvo S60. We ordered the system to use with the Yakima FrontLoader Upright Bike Mount, knowing we wanted a rack that didn't require removing a wheel every time we used it. At the time of ordering, Yakima didn't offer an adequate bar system for our vehicle, so we went with the Thule AeroBlades after doing some research on compatibility. After a year, we are very happy with our Thule system. Set-up was fairly easy for two people (I wouldn't recommend doing it alone) and all directions were clear. We chose the AeroBlades over cheaper systems because of the potential for noise reduction, as well as durability. We're very happy with our purchase and have had no issues so far. It has remained securely fastened to the Yakima rack. Two negatives, which others may have mentioned: the rack interferes with our satellite radio system at times and the rack does create some wind noise when we open our sun roof. Otherwise, the noise is not an issue when it is closed. Overall, we would completely purchase it again, particularly for use with the Yakima FrontLoader.

Ask the Experts about this Thule Roof Rack

  • Can I Use My Old Thule Rapid Traverse Feet On My New 2020 Volkswagen Jetta?
    I reached out to Thule about your specific question and I found that you cannot use the Thule Rapid Traverse Foot Pack # TH480R for your new 2020 Volkwagen Jetta. The only Thule roof rack feet you can use on your new Volkswagen Jetta is the Evo Clamp Feet # TH710501 with this fit kit # TH145204. If you had Thule 53" Wingbar Evo Crossbars # TH711420 on your other vehicle you can use them with the Evo Clamp feet!

  • Thule TH480R Rapid Traverse Roof Rack Feet Compatibility With Old Type Square Crossbars
    The Thule # TH480R foot pack isn't compatible with the square crossbars unless they're the newer style that have the slots in the underside. Unfortunately, Thule no longer offers feet that are compatible with the older-style square bars nor is there an adapter available so your best bet will be to replace your existing bars with the new models that have the slots. The bars are available in the following lengths: 43 Inch, part # TH712100 47 inch, part # TH712200 50 inch, part # TH712300 53...

  • Troubleshooting Tightening Bolt Coming All The Way Out of Thule Rapid Traverse Foot
    I reached out to my contact at Thule and she said there's not really a trick to getting the tightening screw back into place on your Rapid Traverse Foot. If it's not threading in there's likely an issue inside the foot that would require a full replacement. Just the tightening bolt isn't available as a separate part, although the bolt itself likely isn't the problem. You can replace a single foot with the part # 7522249001, which will include everything you need.

  • Can Crossbars for a Thule Roof Rack be Spaced Further Apart on a 2012 Honda CR-V
    The crossbar spread is 27-1/2 inches for the Thule AeroBlade system on a 2012 Honda CR-V. This is set by where the feet need to install on the roof. The specific locations are chosen because they are the most structurally sound. The fit kit is then made to fit the specific contours of the roof in those locations. Moving the crossbars further apart will lead to damage to the roof and a lower capacity. For a wider bar spread the Yakima system has a spread of 32 inches which is the largest...

Because roofs are generally sloped and fit is different on every vehicle, use this measurement as a guide only to estimate where the bottom of the bar will approximately be. In addition to the foot pack you will also need the crossbars, # TH711420 in black or # TH711400 in silver, and fit kit # THKIT1538.

  • Can Thule Roof Rack Placement be Moved to Move Cargo Box Back on 2011 Ford Edge
    The placement of the clips that hold the roof rack feet to your 2011 Ford Edge are very specific. Moving them can cause fit problems or unintended damage to the vehicle. Are you able to move the mounting feet on the box any further forward? That would move the box rearward some. The overhang doesn't appear to be excessive in your picture. It will create more wind resistance but if you can open the hood without hitting the box then it will still be fine.

    A 53 inch Thule AeroBlade Load Bars # THARB53 would install onto your 2011 Honda Fit in the same way that the recommended 47 inch AeroBlade would.
