Thule rack system

Compared Thule and Yakima adapters for the factory rails. The Railing Foot Pack #415 renewed my long standing faith in the Thule line. The Thule adapter has a much cleaner fit than the Yakima LowRider, almost factory fitted. The Yakima seems too universal. Look for yourselves. You'll need a minimum of a 50" load bar, 58" might be optimal, or a 66". Since the Pilot is 77" wide you can even go up to 78"ers.

As always, IMHO.;)

Thule Roof Box

I mounted my Thule "Frontier" roof box to the factory crossbars, full forward...which fit/held great...only problem is that I cannot open the tailgate all the way (2/3 max) without scraping the rear, high mounted brake lens/spolier.

So the 754 didn't give the box the necessary added height to avoid the tailgate?...How's the weight distribution?; Does the Mountaineer sit too far forward without crossbar support?.
