Will Thule Cargo Basket # TH859XT Fit On 2012 Jeep Patriot


Do you know if a 2012 Jeep Patriot could accomodate the Thule Roof Rack th859xt with the 20inch extension #XT8591XT included? or do I need to stick with the rack alone and not get the extension? thanks


Expert Reply:

If your 2012 Jeep Patriot has crossbars are spread apart between 20 inches and 37 inches, the Thule Roof Cargo Carrier # TH859XT is a good fit. This cargo carrier is 49 inches long and the Thule Cargo Basket Extension # TH8591XT will add an additional 20 inches to that. You could always purchase the basket first to ensure a proper fit, then purchase the extension later if needed.

The basket has a weight capacity of 150 lbs, but check your vehicle owners guide to ensure your roof can handle that much weight. I have provided a link to a video showing the installation of this product on your vehicle and a link to the installation instructions for this item.

To keep your cargo secure while traveling, I recommend the Cargo Net # CS54FR. This 36-inch by 48-inch bungee net will hold your gear securely without damaging sensitive or fragile items.

This rack also offers locks # TH450400 to deter theft of your rack.
