    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Love the Thule roof bar system. The bars secure easily and give you so much more space to carry things. I have noticed some amount of noise, but nothing unmanageable.

    Nice, Simple Bars

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Picked these up for my Jeep and I was very happy with them. Not as quite as aero bars, but still can take the weight. Works great with any gear carrier. Easy to Install, looks great, would recommend.

    Do what they are supposed to!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These work great. Support my bike and ski racks, easy to install. Only downside is there is a decent amount of wind noise, but just crank up the tunes and you'll be fine


      I love the Thule options for car racks. This design is superior to the Yakima stuff I believe because the bars are square and not round. A friend of mine has the Thule stacker on Yakima racks which are round and they shift a little bit. Very happy with my purchase.

      They do what they're supposed to.

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Picked up these bars to carry skis on my previously naked roof, and they get the job done. They're not as quite as aero bars, but if you need to haul things on the roof of your car, look no further.

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I bought these bars for your run of the mill surf trips and general extra cargo space up top. I drive a 94 jeep cherokee and have had these racks for about 5 months and the fit with just about every cargo rack/basket rack set up. There very simple and easy to install, plus they are made in the great US of A so that's always a huge plus, love to support American workers and companies. These racks are well rounded, multipurpose across the board, and I know that they will serve you well. And who better to buy from the Buy these racks and go have a good day in the outdoors.

      Nice, simple, cost-effective bars

        We have a Toyota Tacoma with a topper and have a Thule track system permanently installed. The square bars work with almost any gear carrier.

        Here is the system for this specific setup:

        Nice, simple, cost-effective bars

        Great way to put anything on your roof

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        It's no surprise that Thule cross bars are one of the best accessories you can put on any vehicle. You can haul anything you want knowing that it will be secured to you vehicle without damaging your roof. I did however discover that Thule crossbars no longer come with the end caps included. For those you will need to purchase item THU0064 for $9.95. These really complete the look of your rack but they won't come up in the Thule fit guide as they are considered an accessory, not a requirement. Here they are on my 2014 Tacoma.

        Great way to put anything on your roof

        Heavy duty bars

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I"m a contractor and load these bars down with heavy ladders and they are fully bombproof. My last pair were pretty rusted inside the plastic coating after about 10 years of use and they were still super strong. I wouldn't trust any other load bars with my heavy equipment at 80 MPH on the freeway.

        These bad boys can carry a load

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I've had these parts on a honda civic, a grand cherokee and a wrangler. Doesn't matter what car, these bars will not only haul your bikes and skis, but they'll get your plywood home from home depot and they'll give you something to tie your christmas tree to. Highly recommended.

        Solid and Secure

          After locking these load bars into my Traverse Foot Pack and hauling my kayak over 1000 miles in a weekend I know these bars are strong. I have the 50 inch load bars on my Pontiac Vibe and they are the perfect fit.

          Must Have!

            I racked my 1999 Nissan Sentra and the 50" bars fit perfect and look very good on my little green car! I use these all the time with my Cargo Box, ski rack, kayak rack, hauling wood, and I through a bunch of stuff up there when I moved. My car is so small that it doesn't hold very much stuff so this rack lets me carry the things that don't fit in my trunck!

            I have a THULE �Frontier� and I am looking for the best roof rack bars with my Nissan Murano SE 2007 and I don't know which system would fit best... Can you help me?

            you can plug your car specs into the fit guide from Thule and get back all the compatible racks and accessories. Check it out here;

            Four different bars are offered. What are the differences?

            Specifically, the numbers are the loadbar length in inches. There is a banner near the top of all the Thule pages on for the Car Rack Configurator. You can use that to find out exactly what Thule products will work for your make/model/year of vehicle.

            We bought a 2008 Chevy Equinox last year and it has luggage rails but no bars. Can I order the bars from you and how much would they be?

            You would need to get the foot pack to attach the load bars to your factory roof rack. Go to or use the link on the top of this page to configure your vehicle... You've probably already figured out what you need though.

            I don't know anything about load bars, but...

            I don't know anything about load bars, but was looking for car top carriers for our road bikes. I guess this is where we would start as I don't have load bars on my car?

            The easiest place to start is on the Thule website-

            You pick your car make, year, and model and choose the type of activities you need a rack for (ski, bike, kayak, etc).

            From there, it will give you all the components you need for a complete set-up.

            Quick and Easy!

            can you cut the bars down to any size?

            can you cut the bars down to any size?

            I've done it several times for different cars. The best method is a Dermel tool with a cutting wheel. Use a face sheild, safety glasses, or googles!. Mark your bar, wrap masking tape around the bar at the mark to have a guide to follow, cut the bar. Use a utility knife to cut back to rubber so the end will accept an end cap. Viola!
