Roof Rack Recommendation for 2005 Nissan Xterra with Raised Siderails for Carrying Thule Cargo Box


I have an 05 Nissan Xterra, The cross bars are too wide for the U bolts that hold the THule box in place they are roughly 3 1/4 inch wide Looking for either a thinner cress bar or an adapter. the side rails are also the big round pipe so the standard stuff is not working


Helpful Expert Reply:

What you'll need is the Thule Roof rack part # TH450R and crossbars # TH711120. This roof rack will attach to the round raised side rails of your 2005 Xterra and will give you a smaller crossbar that your cargo box can attach to. I recommend using locks # TH450400 to secure your rack.

I attached a picture that shows this rack installed on a similar Xterra.
