  • What is the Difference Between Curt Roof Rack Crossbars and Thule Roof Rack with Evo Raised Feet?
  • I wouldn't say that you're missing anything; the Curt Roof Rack for Raised Side Rails # C18118 are a solid, low cost roof rack option that looks great. When you look at them compared to something like the Thule Roof Rack with Evo Raised Rail Feet # TH711220 and # TH710401 the differences are extremely subtle and may not matter to a lot of consumers. Curt is primarily a company known for making trailer hitches and towing products, so roof racks aren't exactly their specialty. When it comes...

  • Low Profile Roof Cargo Box and Roof Rack Recommendation for 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited
  • The lowest profile roof rack that fits your 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited that has the black and chrome roof rails is the Thule Aeroblade Edge rack part numbers # TH7602B-TH7602B and # THKIT3142. Since this has a flush bar setup where the crossbars do not stick through the feet of the rack it's able to be a bit shorter. The lowest profile box then that fits this rack is the Thule Motion XT Alpine part # TH6295B which only measures 13-1/4 inches tall. Most are at least 4 inches taller...

  • What is the Difference Between Pioneer and Backbone Systems for a 2020 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
  • Great question! The Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform Rack with Backbone Mounting System # JB0893 and # JB0892 are basically the same thing, but the difference is that the # JB0893 has the Rhino-Rack quick-release leg system. This means that if you plan on removing the platform rack and then putting it back on then this would be the better option because you just have to squeeze 2 levers on the inside of the feet instead of having to remove hardware. Aside from that both systems are the same....

  • Best Roof Rack for a 2017 Lexus RX350 with Panoramic Roof
  • The best roof rack for a 2017 Lexus RX 350 with panoramic roof is the Thule WingBar Evo Crossbar part # TH711220, part # TH710601, and part # TH186044. The Thule WingBar is one of the most aerodynamic crossbars on the market therefore will provide the least amount of wind resistance (more mpgs) and drag (less noise). There won't be any fit issues with the panoramic roof either as the feet mount to the flush side rail. The longer crossbars when compared to factory roof racks will allow you...

  • Why is There Price Difference Between Curt and Yakima/Thule Roof Racks

What this means for you is that the components will be very easy to install due to the intuitive design, will perform flawlessly, and will last you a very long time.

  • Do I Need THKIT3412 to Mount Thule Roof Rack on 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • Yes. Assuming that you have the chrome/black roof rails you need the Thule Podium Mounting Kit # THKIT3142 in addition to the AeroBlade Edge Roof Rack # TH7602-TH7602 to mount the Podium mounts that come with the Aero Bar Roof Rack to your 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee. If you have the all black roof rails that do not have a channel in them, you won't be able to use the Thule Roof Rack system. I've attached a picture for you to reference when determining which rails you have on your 17 Grand...

  • How To Transfer Old Thule Aero Crossbars To a 2019 Honda CR-V
  • In order to transfer the Thule AeroBlade Crossbars you have onto a 2019 Honda CR-V you will need the Evo Clamp Feet part # TH710501 and Fit Kit for Thule Evo Clamp Roof Rack Feet part # TH145046. I know this is not what you wanted to hear but the rubber pad that attaches to the foot pack is the same for every set of mounting feet. The reason that it is not sitting flush on the roof of your vehicle is because the angle is not correct due to using the wrong fit kit which is a vehicle specific...

  • Thule Roof Rack Fit on 2018 Honda CR-V with Naked Roof
  • There are a couple of really good options for roof racks that fit your 2018 Honda CR-V with a naked roof, but the now-discontinued Thule Crossroad Kit would not fit as it is only designed for raised side rails. For a similar rack from Thule that does fit your 2018 Honda CR-V with a naked roof, I recommend the square bar rack which consists of: Thule SquareBar Crossbars # TH712400, Evo Clamp Feet for Thule Crossbars # TH710501 and Fit Kit for Thule Evo Clamp Roof Rack Feet # TH145046....

  • There are a couple of different options for you to carry skis on your 2018 Mazda CX-5 with a bare roof, but the Inno Dual Angle Ski Rack you asked about would not work as it uses fixed mounting points, which your Mazda without any type of rails does not have. If you were looking to avoid a roof rack altogether you will need the SeaSucker Ski and Snowboard Carrier - Vacuum Cup Mounted - 8 Skis or 4 Snowboards # 298-SK2420.

  • Recommended Two Kayak System for 2017 Ford F450 with Sunroof Pulling 5th Wheel Trailer
  • To avoid your bed when towing a 5th wheel on your 2017 Ford F-450, the best way to carry your couple of kayaks is to use a roof rack and a front hitch receiver with a load extender. You may not be able to use your sunroof with the kayaks installed. My recommendation is the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - 2" # 65076 which is a confirmed fit for your vehicle along with the Thule Goalpost Hitch Mounted Load Bar # TH997. Then I recommend the Thule roof rack...

  • Can 53" Thule WingBar Evo Crossbars be Used for a Roof Rack on a 2019 Honda CR-V
  • There is a chance that the 53" Black # TH711420 or Silver # TH711400 WingBar Evo Crossbars will fit on your 2019 Honda CR-V but since the WingBar Evo crossbars have limited mounting space on the bottom side (see attached) it is hard to say if the 6" longer bars will fit. If you are really wanting the WingBar Evo system then I recommend using the 47" Black # TH711220 or Silver # TH711200 Crossbars with the Podium Feet # TH460R and the Fit Kit # THKIT3166.

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee High Altitude with Flush Mount Rails

The Rhino-Rack Pioneer SX Platform Rack # JA9135 is basically a hybrid of a roof platform and a roof rack because it has the legs attached to built in crossbars on the bottom of the platform.

  • There are two roof configurations for a 2020 Kia Telluride, bare roof and flush side rails. The roof rack system for a bare roof attaches to the door jambs via car clips whereas the system for flush side rails attaches to the flush side rails. I recommend the Yakima JetStream Crossbar System part # Y00426, part # Y00146, part # Y06125, and part # Y06165 if you have a bare roof or part # Y00425, part # Y00145, and part # Y94FR if you have flush side rails.

The other racks attach to the factory fixed points that are in the railing which are separated by 32 inches on center. If you are wanting the absolute max spread capabilities the Rola wins in that regard. That said the Rola bars tend to flex more than the other ones do so if rigidity is a priority the Rola loses in that category. The most rigid bar...
