Rhino-Rack Euro Square Roof Rack Review - 2013 Chevrolet Equinox

Today on our 2013 Chevrolet Equinox, we're going to be test fitting the Rhino Rack 2500 Series roof rack system, consisting of part numbers DS118B, this the Rhino Rack 2500 square cross bars and also part number DK226, and this is the custom fit kit for the Equinox. A Rhino Rack roof rack system is great carrying a wide variety of accessories on our roof, and freeing up space inside our vehicle. It can carry bike racks, cargo baskets, cargo boxes, ski and snowboard carriers, and kayak carriers as well. Both bars have a combined carrying capacity of 165 pounds, but always double check your vehicle's manual to make sure that your roof can withstand that weight. This roof rack system clamps to the top of your car and is very easy to install. Also, once you install it, we have these locking end caps on each leg so once this is installed, it's secure to your roof as well. Now that we've gone over some of the features of the roof rack, let's go ahead and show you how it installs.


Yakima CoreBar Steel Crossbars Installation - 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe

Today on our 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe, we're going to be taking a look at and installing the Yakima BaseLine Roof Rack System with CoreBars. That consists of the 60" Yakima CoreBars, part number Y00422, the BaseLine Towers, part number Y00146, and the BaseClip Fit Kits for Hyundai Santa Fes, part number Y06130 and Y06133. This heavy duty, yet quiet, roof rack system maximizes the carrying capacity of your Santa Fe. The aerodynamic teardrop shape controls air flow to minimize wind noise and vibration. These steel crossbars are going to allow you to attach a wide variety of accessories to your Santa Fe's roof, such as bike racks, boat carriers, and roof mounted cargo baskets. The BaseLine towers are going to support our CoreBars and the BaseClips are going to provide a custom fit to our Santa Fe. For more security, you could pick up the Yakima Same Key System Lock Cores with part number Y07204. It's an easy installation. We'll go ahead and show you that now.


Yakima Roof Rack Review - 2015 Ford Edge

Today on our 2015 Ford Edge, we're going to be test fitting the Yakima Core Bar Roof Rack System, consisting of part numbers Y00421, this is the Core Bar Crossbar 50 inches long, part number Y00146, these are the Baseline Towers for the Yakima Crossbars, and part number Y06102, this is one set of the Fit Kits for your Ford Edge, and part number Y06139, and this is the final Fit Kit for your Ford Edge. The Yakima Core Bar Roof Rack System is great for carrying a wide variety of accessories on your roof while freeing up space inside your vehicle. The two bars have combined carrying capacity of 220 pounds, although you always want to double check with your vehicle's manual to make sure that your roof can withstand that weight. The bars have a nice aerodynamic shape to them and that's going to cut down wind noise and drag while you're driving. Also, all the towers have these knockouts here which you can buy lock core systems which are sold separately, so once you install this onto your roof, it will be secure to your roof as well. Know that we've gone over the features of the Roof Rack System, let's go ahead and show you how it installs. We have our rear bar partially assembled on our table here and I will finish assembling it by attaching our Baseline Tower to our Core Bar. We have our tower set up here. Our first step is we're going to insert our adapter piece that comes with our Core Bar. You just push it into place until you hear a loud click like that. Next, we'll take our bracket here, slide that over our bar, then loosely install this portion onto this.

  • Recommended Bike Rack on 2017 Honda Civic Sport Hatchback
  • A roof rack is going to be your best option for a 2017 Honda Civic Sport Hatchback as long as you have a 4 door. Roof racks will cause drag which will always impact your gas mileage. And, like you said, getting something on a roof is more difficult than the trunk, but a hitch will not work with the center exhaust and a trunk rack is going to have issues with with the top spoiler.

  • Difference Between Rhino-Rack Vortex And Thule Aeroblade Roof Racks For 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe

Both systems are designed to work on vehicles that have the flush mounted rail system. As far as the design or advantages or disadvantages of the Rhino-Rack system versus the Thule system, it is very difficult to say it has features that are better than the Thule. They both have very similar crossbar designs and features but the Rhino-Rack has...

  • How to Remove the End Caps on Thule Rapid Crossroads Feet and AeroBlade Load Bars
  • If you are talking about the end caps on the Rapid Crossroads foot pack # TH450R then they will just pull off (unless you have locks installed then you would unlock them first). For the end caps on the AeroBlade bars there is a little tab on the underside of the bar that you will need to press in while pulling out on the end cap. I made a video showing how this works for you.

  • Compatibility of Thule Roof-Mount Bike Racks with Rhino Rack 2500 Series Cross Bars

Most of the Thule roof-mounted racks that use clamps like the Circuit XT, # TH526XT or the Sidearm, # TH594XT will fit your cross bar. Other Thule racks can use an adapter to mount in the slot on top of the bar should fit, as the slot is of similar dimension to those used on Thule Aero Blade cross bars.

  • What is the Roof Weight Capacity of a 2012 Toyota Highlander with Factory Roof Rack
  • I spoke with a tech at my local Toyota dealer and he told me that the roof weight capacity for the 2012 Toyota Highlander is 100 lbs. This weight capacity applies to factory or aftermarket crossbars. You may wish to use aftermarket crossbars like the Thule AeroBlade Edge, # TH7503-TH7503, or the Whispbar Rail Bar, # WB-S46, because they will not flex as much as the OEM crossbars. You will still be limited to the 100 lbs weight capacity of the vehicle roof, but the crossbars included...

  • Identifing if 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland has E-Group Package w/Flush Rails Run Front to Back
  • Good news, I can help you identify which roof your 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland has. If there is a chrome/metal strip on the inside of the rails you have the E Group package roof. The # RSP27 will fit this type of rail perfectly. Alternatively, if the rails are totally black you do not have the E Group package. For a similar looking style roof rack compared to the Rhino Rack # RSP27 for your Overland there is the Whispbar Aero made up of parts # WB-S25 and # WB-K835. I have...

  • Thule Roof Rack Recommendation for 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • There are indeed some roof rack options available for your Jeep Grand Cherokee. The first thing you'll need to do is determine if your Grand Cherokee has the E group package. You can easily tell this by examining the rails on the roof. If the rails have a metal strip on the top, you have the E group package. For that style roof rail, you'd want to use the Rhino Rack roof rack, which uses existing holes in the roof rails and consists of the following parts: Aero style crossbars, part...

  • Recommendation for Wind Noise Prevention for Yakima Roof Rack on 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • To help prevent wind noise created by the Yakima roof rack you installed on your 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee, I recommend the Yakima Windjammer Airfoil # Y01115. It is a small, wing shaped airfoil that serves as a low-cost alternative to fairing. It installs in seconds over the front crossbar and reduces rack noise. I have included a video review and description of this product. It is 1-1/4 inches tall by 3-3/4 inches wide by 8 inches long and comes with a lifetime warranty. I have included...

To mount a crossbar on the top of your 1999 to 2008 Ford F-250 truck you will need three items which are the Yakima Q Towers Roof Rack Feet, part number Y00135, Q58 Q Clips for Yakima Q Towers, part number Y00658, and the Round 58" CrossBar for Yakima Roof-Rack System, part number Y8810023.

  • What Roof Rack for 2013 Nissan Rogue With Naked Roof
  • Roof rails on your 2013 Rogue are a factory-only option. We cannot offer these rails themselves on an aftermarket basis. However, we can offer you several options for roof racks that can be fitted to a 2013 Nissan Rogue with a naked roof (meaning a roof with no factory-installed side rails or crossbars). Differences between products suitable for your Rogue will include shape, length and color of the crossbars, weight capacity of the rack system, and how quiet the rack is during highway...

  • Troubleshooting Loud Whistling After Rhino Rack Roof Rack Install
  • Did you install the rubber strip in the upper and lower channel of the crossbars? What you described sounds like you are missing that as these are aero bars and should not be whistling at all. If there are any holes in the channel on the bottom or top of the bar they should be covered to get rid of the noise. Or you can use a fairing like part # RRRF3 to direct the air over the rack.

  • Recommended Roof Rack for a 2015 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk with Factory Install Rails
  • The crossbar I recommend is the Thule AeroBlade # THARB53 because its extremely quiet and has integrated T-slots which make it easy to slide T-track accessories onto the bars. The roof mounted railing foot pack # TH450R (sold separately) are easily installed or removed with the integrated tool that will also act as a cover. The weight capacity of the roof rack is 165 pounds but it's always a good idea to check your owners manual to see the maximum roof weight capacity. Therefore,...

  • Thule AeroBlade Roof Rack for a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited
  • We do have a Thule AeroBlade roof rack that will fit your 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited, however the AeroBlade Edge Roof Rack, # TH7502-TH7502, that you referenced will fit raised OEM side rails only. Since your Jeep has the flush side rails, you will want the AeroBlade Traverse Roof Rack. The Traverse roof rack consists of the 60 inch AeroBlade Load Bars, # THARB60, the Traverse Foot Pack, # TH480R, and the Fit Kit, # THKIT1656. You can also add the Thule One-Key Locks, # TH544,...

  • Recommended Method to Carry Kayaks on 2015 Toyota Highlander XLE with Factory Roof Rack
  • There are several ways you can go to rig your 2015 Toyota Highlander with fixed factory roof crossbars for transporting kayaks. Adding a secondary roof rack is not an option, however, since aftermarket racks would have to use the same mounting points as your OEM bars. I confirmed this with my contacts at both Rhino-Rack and Thule. But there are also other ways you can carry kayaks that might give you additional cargo-carrying capabilities and/or possibly save you some money as compared...

  • Recommended Roof Rack For 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback
  • The hatch on the 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback does not interfere with a roof rack system which attaches above the doors and allows plenty of clearance for the rear hatch. My recommendation based on the rack's capacity is the 2017 Honda Civic Roof Rack by Rhino Rack. This rack is constructed with the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars - Aluminum - Black - 49" Long - Qty 2, # RRVA126B-2, which have an aerodynamic design for reduced noise and have the channels for accessories. These bars...

  • 2017 Subaru Forester Roof Rack Recommendation
  • For a roof rack for your 2017 Subaru Forester with raised side rails I would recommend the Thule Aeroblade Edge Roof Rack part number # TH7502B-TH7502B for if you want an OEM look that will create the least amount of wind noise since the bars do not extend past the feet of the rack. If you needed more usable crossbar instead I would recommend the Aeroblade parts # THARB47B and # TH450R as it has bars that sit on top of the feet which are longer at 47 inches instead of around 31 usable...
