Video Transcript for Yakima Roof Rack Installation - 2016 Nissan NV 3500

Hey everybody, Ryan here at etrailer. Today on our 2016 Nissan NV3500, we're gonna be checking out and showing you how to install the Yakima JetStream roof rack system. So when it comes to these NV 3500 vehicles, people use them to do a ton of different things. I mean, you see these being used as work vehicles, shuttle bus type vehicles, cargo, and even what's becoming really popular is kinda converting these into almost a mini RV, if you will. And so a roof rack on something like this definitely makes a lot of sense. It's really going to open up what you can use your NV3500 for.

So for example, by having these crossbars up here, you can use all different types of accessories, whether it might be a bike rack or a kayak carrier, load up a canoe, maybe put up a roof basket, or even maybe a cargo container where you can put a bunch of things in. Having crossbars up here is gonna really help to allow you to use all this different types of accessories and carry around a lot of different things. Without it, it's taking up all the space inside of your vehicle. I mentioned earlier too, a lot of people using these for work vehicles. It make sense, big capable, you can carry around a lot of stuff.

You can also put your ladders up here and make them easier to get to and function with, with everything else in the inside. It doesn't end there, though. If you have maybe some material, maybe some tubing, piping, whatever the case may be, whatever job you're trying to get done, this is really good to open up your opportunities. There is going to be two different versions of these crossbars. And the one that we're showing off here today is the black version.

There's also gonna be some that are available in silver as well. So a couple of different choices you have to pick from there and whatever kinda floats your boat there, as far as what color crossbars you want. These are going to help reduce wind noise. I mean, whenever you put something on top of your vehicle, it's gonna make a little more noise. Chances are pretty good , driving this type of vehicle anyway, probably not something you're really concerned with, but I mean, that could get annoying and these are really gonna help kinda cut down or minimize that compared to a lot of other type of roof rack systems.

They're gonna have a teardrop type designs that will help kinda cut through that wind a little bit better. And they're also gonna be made from aluminum. So really lightweight. And you're not gonna have to worry about the weather tearing them up or anything like that 'cause we're not gonna have to worry about them getting rusted out or anything along those lines. So the crossbars, they are going to allow you to use those T-track type accessories that'll go into the track there and that's how it will be secured as well as those clamp-on style ones. Just make sure that they're the correct style, that way everything will bolt up properly. So you have quite a few choices there. And if you look down here where our towers are, there's gonna be an open hole there and you can fill that hole using some lock cores. And if you use a lock cores, what it's gonna do is essentially secure your roof rack system to your vehicle. That way, you're not gonna have to worry about anyone tampering with it or trying to run off with it. So if that's something you're concerned about, always an option for you. So at the end of the day, using a roof rack system like this, it just makes sense for this type of vehicle, especially if you plan on carrying around a lot of things. It's gonna really help you out and get the job done. Now as far as the installation goes, not gonna lie, it really wasn't too bad. To be honest with you, I don't do a ton of roof racks. And so I don't have a ton of experience installing them. We do our research and know a lot about them and the things that people use them for. But this is my first roof rack system on a vehicle like this, a van like this, and I was pleasantly surprised on how straightforward it was. It really didn't take me a whole lot of time at all. But speaking of the installation, why don't we go ahead, pull into the garage, and put it on together now. To actually get the roof rack installed, on top of our roof here, we're gonna have several mounting points and you need to figure out which ones you're going to use and that's gonna depend on what type of roof mounted accessory you're going to be using. So be sure to check those instructions to figure out the spread and everything else. With that said, we can go ahead and get started. We have these factory mounting points and we're gonna take this piece here. And this is actually gonna bolt through that factory mounting point. All right, and way that's gonna happen is you're gonna take one of these bolts, you're gonna put on a metal flat washer and then followed by this plastic type washer. And those are gonna go in both of those openings. We're gonna have some squared off nuts here, and these are gonna fit under there and to that slot, the bolts are gonna come through and bolt through them. The issue that I've ran into is when you slide these in here, they're so far down, it's really hard for that bolt to catch and kinda just makes things tricky to do. So I've been using some spacers. And these are just some random plastic washers that I had laying around. And I mean, you can use whatever you guys got laying around the house, regular washers, you can cut out, maybe a piece of cardboard, something just to kinda fill this void here. So I slide them under with our spacer block. It fits nice and close. And I like to take just like a paper clip, just kinda help center everything. And I get these started one at a time, so I do the everything and lined up. And what I'm trying to do is just get it to catch a thread or two, so they're caught. But you don't wanna really tighten it 'cause you still need to move this around and everything else. So once you have it caught, you take your paper clip, kinda sneak our spacers back out of there and we'll do that same exact thing for this one here. As soon as that second one catches and get these spacers out of the way, we'll take our island wrench and tighten these down. So once you have this piece completely on, you're simply going to repeat that exact same process over on the other side of our vehicle. So now we can do is assemble our towers, that way we can get them on the actual crossbar. So with these, you can squeeze it on the side on the cover there and open that up. And we're gonna have a hex nut in there. We'll take the tool and just back that off a few turns and what we're gonna do, we're gonna have these pieces and these are going to fit inside of here. So what we're gonna do is get these aligned up. These are kinda just snapping into place. And then you can take the metal portion there, kinda hold that down and then underneath we'll have a hex head. So we'll turn that until it touches, but we still want it to be somewhat loose, have some adjustability there, like so. And then if we grab our crossbar here on the bottom side of it, which will be this side, we're gonna peel this stripping out of the way. And when I hold this down, that piece there, you can see how it's kinda hanging down, it's gonna slide into the channel there on our crossbar. Now these are adjustable, so you can slide these where you need them to be. I've already done some test fitting here. And what I came up with, if we look these numbers here about 51-1/2 in our case is where we wanna go. So if you have the same exact vehicle, chances are really good. This is gonna get you going really close. And with it set up like that, we're gonna have the same amount of overhang of crossbar each side of our vehicle. So it will be centered. That said, though, we'll go ahead and hold that in place. Start to tighten that down and just make sure everything is straight and level. You're gonna tighten that until you hear and feel a click in your tool and that's gonna automatically torque it for you once it clicks. So you know it's gonna be the proper setting as far as how tight you get it goes. The same thing with that other hex head screw inside there. And we're simply just going to push our weatherstripping. I'm sorry, the stripping here back. We'll probably come back and cut it later. Not really a crazy deal right now, but with that said, you're simply just gonna do the same exact thing for the other end of our crossbar. So now we can take our assembly here, that we put together and actually get it up on the roof. The way this is gonna work, you want these caps to be open and we're just gonna line it up to the pieces that we actually bolted to the roof. Make sure both sides drop in and then all we're gonna have to do to lock them to the pieces in the roof there is just close up the cap. So now what I went ahead and done was just used a razor heads to trim our stripping here. And then I took the piece that we had removed and we're just going to transfer it over to the side. That way, the whole bottom side of our crossbar will have this. And then we can take the end cap, and get this lined up. These are kinda tight. So just keep that in mind. We'll get it lined up and snapped in place. So I will say I already had one of the crossbars installed and the one that we just did together literally went on the exact same way. So if he figured one of them out, you're good to go to get the next one in. Everything is identical. So with that said, now you're ready to load up your favorite accessory and hit the road. And that'll finish up our look at and our installation of the Yakima JetStream Roof Rack System on our 2016 Nissan NV3500..

I recently purchased a rack system for my 1979 Ford Bronco to haul our new Kayaks. And believe me it was not easy to "fit" a vehicle as old as this.

I had some interesting challenges - my truck has a 3" lift and only clears my garage entrance by about 1.5 inches, so whatever I got had to be easily removable (at least in the front). I also wanted it to be multi functional so that I could carry other stuff as well, and the Yakima/Thule systems are great for that. Lastly, I wanted whatever I put on the truck to look good as I have put a lot of time and $ into fixing up this old truck and I didn't want it to look cheezey.....

Thanks to the good folks at etrailer I ended up with somewhat of a hybrid approach (my choice) but it worked out exactly as I envisioned it. I purchased the Thule Xsporter Pro system for the rear which works well with only minor modifications to the truck. I can lower it easily so I can get the truck into the garage without removing the system altogether. I really like that the tailgate is still functional with the system installed as some others I had in mind were bumper or hitch attached and would not allow use of the tailgate.... And, lastly it looks nice enough to just leave it on all the time.

On the front I chose the Yakima JetStream cross bar held up by a pair of Yakima SkyLine Towers and Landing Pads which I chose because I can easily remove the crossbar/towers to get the truck into my garage. The Landing Pads have covers for when not in use and are small enough to not be too noticeable.

I also added the security locks for peace of mind.

I have added 3 pictures, the first shows the Landing Pads without the towers & crossbar. You can also see the Xsporter Pro on the rear in its lowered position. The 2nd shot is a closeup of the Skyline Tower. The 3rd picture shows the entire system installed ready for my kayaks (or whatever).

Thanks again to the folks at etrailer for their expert advice and customer service.

Working very well in my Jeep Grand Cherokee 2020. It is used to carry my roof top tent




by:

Installed these with timberline mounts to factory side rails on a 4Runner. The timberline mounts provided an extra 9” of length, over the factory crossbar spread. The aluminum section of the jetstream bars is 70”. The additional plastic caps make the oal a little over 72”. So far it works well to carry two paddle boards side by side. The cross bars are the width of the body panels and haven’t hit my head yet. etrailer shipped quickly. Customer service was great! Spent about 30 minutes on hold to talk to someone, but Kayla was super helpful, and well informed. Worth the wait.

Review from a similar JetStream in Roof Rack


Product exactly as expected. Quality bars. Using on a 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L. Looks great installed. Little to no wind noise. And, as usual, top notch service by the etrailer crew! Have purchased several items from etrailer over the past 10 years and have always been impressed by how timely they are and how responsive and helpful they have been regarding product questions. They are absolutely the first merchant I go to when shopping on line!

The 50” jetstream cross bars were perfect for my 2019 Ford Ranger with my ARE cap. They are paired with the Yakima Skyline towers and appropriate landing pads (protip: call etrailer when you order to ensure you have the correct setup;)

These cross bars are SILENT on my cap. Zero wind noise. My daughter and I installed them on a Friday (I do recommend watching etrailer’s installation video in addition to the paper instructions) and left for a 700 mile weekend road trip the next day to pick up a kayak, paddle with friends downstate then drop her off at summer camp.

Even with empty Yakima Jaylows on top, no wind noise. Even with a boat in the Jaylows, no wind noise.

These are the sweetest rack’s I’ve had. With the Skyline towers and landing pads, they are also easy to take off and put on. Click click done.

They look good, too;)

etrailer customer service for the win, too. When I originally ordered, I did not order all the items I needed for installation. When I realized this, I called and they got me squared away.

Review from a similar JetStream in Roof Rack


The rack system seems very good, but time will tell, of course. The installation is difficult and time consuming. I purchased the system needed from etrailer website with guaranteed to fit pieces. I would call myself a very experienced do-it-yourselfer. I followed directions slowly, carefully, and exactly, yet there were problems. The video for installation given for my exact order did not match the printed and actual assembly and installation directions. The baseclips that were guaranteed for my model vehicle were actually for a different model vehicle according to the enclosed sheet ... however they did work anyway but caused some "looking up" and some confusion during assembly. I was careful to assemble exactly to measurements given ... and once that is all done and tightened and "sealed up" you put them on the roof, only to find that they could have been spaced a bit wider for a perfect fit. They are fine enough and we'll see if they stay tight to the vehicle. If not will need to take it all apart and widen the spacing.
It is excellent that basically only one tool that is provided with the racks is needed. And also that each part must "click" when properly tightened. That adds reassurance and satisfaction while assembling.
There are so many models of vehicles and it is not easy to figure all this out. etrailer has a very helpful website, response, and videos to help ... but my review is to emphasize that the instructions are not perfect. One needs lots of patience, common sense, and perhaps re-assembly for a perfect outcome.

Lightweight and actually quite quiet with no attachments on them. With my bike racks there is a fair amount of noise but it doesn't come from just these. Mine is on a 2011 BMW 335.

Review from a similar JetStream in Roof Rack


The bars are sturdy, aerodynamic and super strong. I bought this to fit a Yakima Skybox 16 and these worked great. The measurement ticks on the bottom assist with getting the box centered and have a great gasket system that you fit yourself. These mounted pretty quick even in 20 degree weather.

etrailer sold this as a set based on my car and every piece was great and a perfect fit. Communication and tracking info was great and they delivered it a day before promised.

Review from a similar JetStream in Roof Rack


etrailer came through with speed and quality. A couple of other websites that I looked at could not supply all the needed equipment ("on backorder") in a timely manner. As you know, getting "most" of the roof rack is the same as getting "none" of the rack. So I was very pleased to see that etrailer could send me everything quickly. It is exactly what I needed.

Review from a similar JetStream in Roof Rack


The JetStream crossbars are awesome. Unfortunately the box that these came ' in was damaged, and when I opened it both crossbars had scratches. It is only cosmetic, but when you pay top dollars for a good product you expect that it will be well packaged so is not damaged when shipped. If it wasn’t for the damaged packaging and scratches I would give it 5 starts.

Review from a similar JetStream in Roof Rack


I chose Yakima because I had one in the past and they were always reliable. Thule was my next choice but didn’t like the look of 53’ crossbars on my car. I really appreciated the easy to follow instruction that made installation a breeze. The kit came complete with everything I needed to install right out of the box. I purchased the 2 Hightower bike racks to go with the roof rack system and plan to safely secure both bikes for our trips. It was a bit heavier than I anticipated (combined with the bike carriers) which will hurt my MPG but having easy access to disassemble the bike carriers when not in use made it a no brained. Additionally, I love the look of the system on my car.

Review from a similar JetStream in Roof Rack


I have a 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT which has the non-functional roof side bars. Etrailer.com helped me figure this out and gave me several options that would work. As I already have Yakima bike racks - I wanted to stick with the brand. The price on etrailer.com was the same as Yakima but had free shipping and no tax - awesome. Product arrived quickly!

I went with the Yakima 60" Jetstream cross bars, baseline towers, and the appropriate pads and clips.

The Yakima product came with thorough and easy to understand instructions. I was able to get the track installed and working in about an hour - and that was taking it slow and double checking everything. I was very pleased with the fit and finish.

After a test run, there was no wind noise or issue with the rack. Looking forward to taking a road trip next month with it!

Very happy with our purchase. I love how easily you can remove the entire rack easily. Too bad the locking mechanism comes separately but we are still happy with what we received.

Review from a similar JetStream in Roof Rack


1 year later and still love my Yakima JetStream system. I've mostly used them to transport my kayak however I've also been able to transport some big box store items as well. They are very versatile. There is a t-track option as well as wrap around attachments. I've use ladder attachments, eyebolts, and Thule Hullavator in t-track. I've used Malone MegaWing and Yakima Skybox as wrap around attachment. What I really like about the t-track system is that you do not need to cut out the rubber track insert. You simply slide over the rubber, which allows you to adjust your system, on the fly, to load what you need to carry.

I had a need for the Yakima Crossbars and Towers for my Expedition. With a short delivery time frame, I contacted etrailer knowing they are the best. Justin B. worked with me to get the correct parts then made sure that the products arrived in time, it did. The Towers, Bars and overall excellent customer service from etrailer made for a great experience. Thanks again for exceeding expectations etrailer!

Review from a similar JetStream in Roof Rack


The yakima jetstream crossbar looks beautiful. Quality is great. Took my vehicle for a test drive, and i didnt hear anything loose or broken from the bars. Very satisfied with the product and the instructions were great. It was my first time installing a roof rack too.

Review from a similar JetStream in Roof Rack


The Yakima rack system for my 2015 Ford Fusion is an awesome product! I hadn't needed to buy aftermarket racks in many years. These are a super solid, beefy, and very well made product. I am very impressed with the quality and fit. Yakima has obviously put lots of design time into them. And etrailer does an outstanding job of making sure you get the right product for your specific need.
I chose this rack specifically because of the spread between the bars - 32" - and for the higher weight limit, as I'm carrying a fishing kayak.

The roof rack came packaged nicely and the instructions were simple to follow. I installed it in about an hour and we have already used it this past Memorial Day weekend. My wife loves the way it looks on her Mazda. Much better than the factory rack

Review from a similar JetStream in Roof Rack


The installation was super easy, and despite a long time stuck in shipping the delivery itself was extremely fast, and the package arrived in spotless condition. The manuals were very easy to follow, and the end result is absolutely amazing. I love that there's a rubber piece in the top rail that doesn't need to be cut, which makes it a very flush and smooth fit. I also love the modularity and the weight that it can handle, especially for the stuff i plan on carrying.

I purchased the Baseline towers with base clip fit kit and jetstream crossbars. They were great quality and the instruction materials included for assembly and installation were great. I was able to assemble and install on my Lexus CT 200 in about an hour. It looks nice too!

  • 70 inch Crossbar Roof Rack for 2021 Toyota 4Runner with Raised Rails
    Yakima has their Jetstream roof rack that fits your 2021 Toyota 4Runner with raised roof rails. To do a 70 inch crossbar setup you'd need two of the crossbars # 8880653 and the tower kit part # Y00147 and you'd be set. There isn't a square bar setup that would fit and be the length you want.

  • Parts Needed To Add One Roof Rack Crossbar To 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
    I have another option for you, but the parts of the Thule WingBar Evo Roof Rack system you were looking at are only available in pairs so you not be able to purchase just one crossbar, two feet, and fit kits for just the two feet. Instead I recommend the Yakima Roof Rack System which you can use the 60" Yakima JetStream Crossbar in Black # 8880649 or 70" Yakima JetStream Crossbar in Silver # 8880653, Two of the Replacement BaseLine Tower for Yakima Crossbars # 8880618, and BaseClip Fit...
