I will do it tomorrowCan you take a measure from the roof to the top? I want to compare heights to the OEM design. I don't like the OEM design, but have left it on for no great reason.
Probably, but it still was placed at the safest locationToyota did away with the adjustable points as it was cheaper.
Thule and Yakima connect the way it displayed on photo #1 - i don't really like that it hooks directly to the frame ("naked roof") so they were out.Nice. What in your research lead you to choose the Rhino roof rack over Thule or one of the others?
yes, we go skiing and i leave my car in the parking lots overnight with box, skis, etc - it worth for me to spend extra $300 and sleep through the nightYEs, good choice. Well, the OEM model cost me about $90...vs $400 did you say?
I wouldn't like it on the body and window lip either. Not sure why Thule designed it that way.
my understanding it just "clips on" and it will take max 3 min to remove nuts and take crossbars with the boxI have the OEM original, eg #2 in your pix. They were already installed. Is there a way to rip these off easily? You said no locks. I don't know how they install, but some boxes can be locked to the bars. So they can be dismounted with a box attached?
Like your wheels....Are those 19's? And are they OEM rims? I'd like to see if I can replace my 18's on my 16 XLE?
