  • Weight Capacity and Strength of Vacuum Cups on SeaSucker Monkey Bars
  • Seasucker has been around since 2005, getting their start by mounting accessories to boats with vacuum cups. It was 2009 that they started putting things on cars, like bike and kayak racks.

So if the dimensions of the Thule one will work then these will work too. Many of the T-slots in tracks/load bars have the same or similar dimensions and are compatible with each other's accessories.

Since you do have flush mounted rails that run front to back, and you do not have the E Group package, I recommend the Thule Aero Bar Roof Rack.

  • Solution for Wind Noise with the Malone Roof Rack part # MPG201

For a fairing to use with the Malone roof rack part # MPG201 the part # Y05017 would be what you need. You can also try moving the bars further back on your rack to see if that helps too.

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe with Panoramic Sun Roof
  • For your 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe with the glass roof Thule recommends the Wingbar Evo Roof Rack part # TH711200, # TH460R, and # THKIT4093 if you are wanting to open the roof at all. The Aeroblade Edge rack you referenced sits too low for that. You'll probably find that the crossbars make enough noise that you'd want to keep the roof closed though. Square bars would make even more noise which is why the Aero style is better.

  • It sounds like you have raised side rails on your 2014 GMC Acadia and need a set of crossbars as well as a compatible kayak carrier.

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for 2014 Kia Soul with Flush Rails
  • Take a look at the picture I attached. It shows the roof of a 2014 Kia Soul with a "flush rail" setup. Most likely this is what you have since this is the most popular configuration and it seemingly matches your description. The roof rack you see in the picture is the Thule Aeroblade Edge kit part numbers # TH7602-TH7602 and # THKIT4051. This would be a fantastic option that we would recommend highly. It will be very stable and provide proved minimal wind noise.

For the upgrade to the longer system the hardware will be different, but the track is flexible and able to curve to your roof so you can use the 60 inch system to replace the 54 inch system.

  • How does Roof Rack Bar Sizing Work?
  • Roof Rack sizing is a little different than what you'd expect it to be. Each rack's length is measured by the length of the bar from end to end, letting you pick the amount of distance the bar goes past the bars on the top of your Jeep. The other measurement, called "Cross Bar Spread" is the recommended distance from the center of one bar to the other bar. This helps you pick the size of the roof rack or cargo bag that you can put on top of the vehicle, as well as if a surfboard...
