Crossbar Recommendation for a Thule Evolution Box to Attach to a 2006 Nissan Xterra


I just procured a Thule Evolution Cargo BoxSerial number 673-022305-029. I would like to mount it on my 2006 Nissan Xterra, but I noticed that the mounting U-bolts were not wide enough to go on the factory installed cross bars. The cross bars are about 4 inch wide. I understand that I can purchase Thule cross bars to replace my factory installed ones to mount the Cargo Box, but I am looking into other options. Would TH04997 work to mount the Cargo box on my 2006 Xterra or are there any other options? Thank you for your help.

The only option you have is to go with a different cross bar like you mentioned. The only installation hardware we can recommend for a Thule Evolution box is what is recommended by Thule. The recommended hardware is the EasySnap Mounting Kit # TH05820 which will not accommodate 4 inch wide cross bars.

For an economically priced Thule set of cross bars check out the Thule Rapid Crossroad Feet # TH450R and 53" WingBar Evo Crossbars # TH711420.
