  • Recommended Roof Top Cargo Box for a 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser
  • When it comes to picking out the best roof cargo carrier for your 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser a lot really depends on what you are looking to use it for and what you are hauling. Typically the higher end cargo boxes are made out of stronger materials which helps them to be a little more sturdy than some of our entry-level options. If your Cruiser just has the side rails that run front to back but no crossbars then you will want to install Thule AeroBlade Load Bars # THARB53 for Aluminum,...

  • Rooftop Cargo Box for a 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe with Glass Roof
  • There is a similar box to the Car Top Cargo 18, part # CTC-18S called the SportRack SkyLine, part # SR7095. This box offers identical storage capacity to the Car Top, and uses a side-loading setup oriented towards the passenger's side. When using these boxes, you'll need a roof rack to mount the box onto. If you don't already have one installed, let me know and I can recommend a good fit for you.

  • Recommended Roof Rack and Cargo Box for 2004 Toyota Camry
  • If you are wanting to mount a cargo box like the Car Top Cargo Rooftop Cargo Box # CTC-18S that you referenced to the roof of your 2004 Toyota Camry, you will first need to install a roof rack system. For your vehicle, I recommend the Rhino Rack Square Bar Roof Rack. This system consists of # DS126B for the two 49 inch long Square Crossbars and # DK028 for the Custom DK Fit Kit. This will provide you with a durable roof rack system and a weight capacity of 165 pounds. The crossbar spread...

  • Recommended Best-Value Rooftop Cargo Box for 2017 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • Perhaps the best overall value in a rooftop cargo box is indeed one of the Thule products, their Force Large cargo box # TH628. This box offers 16-cubic-feet of internal capacity, a 110-lb cargo weight rating and a manageable box weight of only 39-lbs. Locks are included and the Force installs quickly thanks to Thule's Quick-Grip mounting clamps, also included. Thule is great about standing behind their products with service and replacement parts.

  • Could Car Top Cargo Rooftop Cargo Box # CTC-18S Fit Factory Crossbars of 2016 Ford Escape
  • Without modification the Cargo Box part # CTC-18S is designed to fit crossbars 22 inches apart that are up to 3-3/4 inches in width. You can increase the maximum crossbar spread to up to 31" by drilling additional 5/16" holes in the floor of the box. These additional mounting holes should be drilled adjacent to the reinforced area of the box floor. We don't have specific fit for this and your Ford Escape, but it should fit the bars pretty easily.

  • Will Car Top Cargo Box Fit 2015 Chevrolet Equinox?
  • The fit of the Car Top Cargo Rooftop Cargo Box # CTC-18S will depend on the crossbars of your 2015 Chevrolet Equinox and not the roof itself. The cargo box will fit on most round, square, aero, elliptical, and factory crossbars that have a minimum spread of 22" and are a maximum of 3-3/4" wide x 1-3/16" tall. To determine if you will be able to open the rear hatch of your Equinox without interference from the cargo box, measure from the front crossbar to the line where the roof and hatch...

  • Is Car Top Cago Rooftop Cargo Box Water Resistant
  • The Car Top Cargo Rooftop Cargo Box # CTC-18S will offer some protection from the elements however it is not sealed tight or water proof. No cargo box is completely water proof. If you're storing anything in it that absolutely cannot get wet, such as electronics of any kind, I would keep them in plastic bags before storing in the box. If you're interesting in locking the box, the Master Lock Covered Solid Body Padlocks # 141T pair well with the cargo box.

  • Will Car Top Cargo Rooftop Cargo Box # Fit on a 2016 Lincoln MKX With Aftermarket Roof Rack

This will give you a complete roof rack system on your MKX that will work well with a roof top cargo box.

  • Will it be Difficult to Load Items into a Roof Mounted Vehicle Cargo Box
  • If you can reach the top of your vehicle easily currently you'd most likely not have a problem loading cargo in the part # CTC-18S. Most likely though sometime like the tire step part # ALL647596 would work well to give you additional height to reach up to the box. Or for a step stool we have the part # CAM43675 that can fold out.
