Recently installed a Rhino Rack Large universal pioneer platform on mopar cross bars. Also added a few accessories. Rototrax recovery boards by Rotopax. Rotopax 1.75 gas container, and a Krazy beaver shovel mounted on rhino rack stow it utility holder. Will eventually be adding a Roam storage case.

You should get the mounting feet that go with the pioneer rack that's what I got for my car and it's a lot lower and is only maybe an inch and a half 2 inches off of the roof and looks so much cleaner.

Do you have a sunroof? I've been contemplating getting rails and a roof basket of some kind, but I have a sunroof and am curious about clearance. I want the best of both worlds with low profile rails and clearance for the roof to open.

Eventually I will come back around and replace the mopar cross rails with the rhino rack. What I do like about the mopar rails, is I am able to reach underneath the rack to clean and wax the roof. I have had SUV’s with racks in the past that I could barely get underneath to clean.

I do not have a sunroof, but would think you would need high clearance cross rails in order for the sunroof to clear. That’s why the mopar/Thule rails sit high.

It is a Apache case from harbor fright. And I attached the max track mounting bracket to the top to save room.

👍. What hardware did you use to mount it to the rack?

Just drilled holes in the bottom and then ordered some pioneer platform mounting bolts and just mounted it that way. Was really easy.
