Yakima 8007389 CBX 18 Crossbar Fitment and Spread

Cargo boxes, bags, and baskets are great for transporting gear on your vehicle's roof. A cargo box has the added benefits of an aerodynamic shape that reduces drag and wind noise, a hard shell to protect your gear, and a higher degree of weather resistance. And you can latch and lock a cargo box for added protection against theft.

The CBX has 18 cu ft of storage space for skis, snowboards, and camping gear. The aerodynamic, low-profile design helps to reduce drag and wind noise, and the locking lid conveniently opens from either side of your vehicle. The box has internal tie-down points for securing cargo, and the quick-release mounting system offers easy, tool-free installation.

Durable Construction

Yakima 8007389 CBX Automotive Grade ABS Plastic

This cargo box is constructed of durable ABS plastic that is lightweight yet rigid and impact resistant. It has a durable black finish that is stylish and less susceptible to chips, scratches, and harsh UV rays when compared with paint.

Dual-Side Opening Lid

Yakima 8007389 CBX Dual Side Opening Lid

The CBX features a dual-side opening lid so you can load and access your gear from either side of your vehicle. Integrated, grip-friendly handles help you easily open and close the lid even with one hand. The lid has lifters that ensure it opens and closes smoothly. There is also a convenient pull cord on the inside that helps you close the lid.

SKS Lock System

Yakima 8007389 CBX Same Key System Locks

The cargo box has SKS locks on each side of the lid. The key cannot be removed from the locks unless the lid is closed and locked. This prevents you from driving with an open or unlocked lid. The locks include SKS lock cores so you can swap them out to make all your Yakima accessories keyed alike.

Quick-Release Mounting System

Yakima 8007389 CBX Quick-Release Clamps

The box can be mounted on your vehicle in less than 5 minutes with the quick-release mounting system. These clamps adjust along tracks in the floor of the box to accommodate different crossbar spreads.

Yakima 8007389 CBX Removable Torque Limiting Knob

To install the box, set it on your roof rack and center the clamps over your crossbars. Then simply use the included torque knob to tighten the clamps around the bars. The knob clicks when the clamps are secure, and can be removed after installation for a flat, unobstructed floor.

Cargo Tie-Down Points

Yakima 8007389 CBX Integrated Tie Down Points

The mounting bracket assemblies on the inside of the box have fixed anchor points for securing your cargo. Just loop straps (sold separately) through the anchor points and pull the straps tight to secure your gear.

So far seems like a great product over the Sears brand we used to use, although we did have some damage from the exterior pallet banding they used to ship, I will be trying to fix it with a heat gun hopefully.

I hate to hear that the roof box needs to be fixed. I will have our Customer Service team reach out to you.


Great roof top box. Well designed and sturdy enough for off-road car camping trips to store gear to be able to sleep inside the car.

Only con is the weight and bulkiness, but is expected due to the large storage volume. If you want to have an easier time taking on and off the box with only 1 person, would recommend going with one size smaller.


Delivery was on time and easy. We used with our Subaru Ascent and it worked perfectly. There is plenty of room, and it's great that you can open from both sides.


Overall happy with it. Minus one star because it gets scuffed up so easily. It really is a 2 person job to lift it up and install it. Kind of annoying that you have to bounce back and forth between each side opening it and closing it to get it installed, but you get quicker with practice. Sadly, our SUV is too tall and our garage too short to lets us just lower it down from the ceiling onto the car. Let us put all kinds of baby gear up top and keep the dogs and luggage down low on our explorer ST.

If you would like to provide more information about your experience I am more than happy to assist you in getting your review updated.







It is big, so big it takes two people to move it! It holds skis, snowboards and so much more. Keep your boots warm in the car. I love that it opens from either side. It fills the roof of my Subaru Crosstrek and and looks small, sort of, on the big SUV. Well built and adjustable. My biggest problem was finding a good storage space for it when not hauling stuff & cutting the wind.


Looks great and easy to use. Wind noise on highway was not bad. It sits on a 2017 VW Alltrac on rhino racks. I wanted to sit low. Therefore the sunroof will not open because of the bottom of the clamp. I’m ok with that pulled the fuse for safety.


Product functions as it should but item seemed used. There are marker or discoloration along the bottom half of the cargo box. It appears scratches or crack repairs have been made to the box and then colored over again. It surely was not advertised as used or refurbished. Other than that box fits and functions properly on 2020 Tesla Model Y.

Love it! We've made several long trips with full luggage loads.


Great product. Great service. Quick delivery. This fits on my Honda CR-V perfectly. The mounting instructions were clear.

  • Will the Yakima CBX 18 # Y86FR Fit My 2009 Toyota RAV4?
    I have a solution for you. I confirmed with Yakima that you will have enough crossbar spread for the Yakima CBX 18 # Y86FR to fit on your 2009 Toyota RAV4. Also, Yakima confirmed that the clamps for the CBX 18 will attach to your factory crossbars. However, I cannot confirm for sure if you will be able to fully open the rear hatch on your vehicle. Your measurement that you used will confirm whether you will be able to open your rear hatch. If you measured from the center of your front...

  • Measuring Fitment For the Yakima CBX Roof Box On 2022 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid XSE With Factory Crossbars
    The Yakima CBX Rooftop Cargo Box # Y66FR is designed to fit most OEM crossbars. To determine the fitment of this on your 2022 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid XSE you will need to take some measurements. First you will need to measure the crossbar as this will fit a cross bar up to 1-11/16" tall and 3-1/2" wide. The crossbars must be spread 24"-36" apart and to ensure the rear hatch will have clearance you will need 45" from the center of the front crossbar to the line where roof and hatch meet on your...

  • 2020 Ford Explorer ST Roof Weight Capacities
    From what I was able to find online it looks like the 2020 Ford Explorer with the moonroof has a weight capacity of 125 lbs whereas the vehicles without the moonroof have a capacity of 200 lbs. You'd want to stay under that weight with your Yakima SkyBox 21 part # Y07337.

  • 2021 Subaru Outback Rear Hatch Clearance with Yakima CBX 18 Rooftop Cargo Box
    The Yakima CBX Rooftop Cargo Box # Y86FR will fit perfectly on your 2021 Subaru Outback Wagon OEM roof rack system and still allow you to completely open up your rear hatch without any interference. According to my research you have 54" of front bar to hatch clearance with your OEM roof rack and the CBX 18 requires 52-1/4" so it will be within inches, but it will still fit just fine! Attached is a review video for you to check out.

  • Rooftop Cargo Box Recommendation for a 2021 Toyota Sequoia
    I recommend checking out the Yakima CBX roof cargo box for your 2021 Toyota Sequoia. This is a premium option from Yakima and it comes as either a 16 cu ft Box # Y66FR or 18 cu ft Box # Y86FR depending on what kind of cargo space you're needing. The clamping system is extremely easy to use and you'll have no issues with that 2-3" height that you're talking about. Cargo boxes change the aerodynamics of vehicles so when it comes to airflow that isn't as big of a concern (although having some...

  • Determining if Thule Motion XT XL Cargo Box Can Fit 2012 Honda CR-V and Allow Hatch Clearance
    I can help you determine if the Thule Motion XT XL part # TH629806 will hit your rear hatch if you open it with the box installed but I can't give you an exact range of motion the box will allow if it were to interfere. You'd have to measure from the front crossbar center back to the rear hatch seat on the roof of the vehicle. If that measurement is 51-1/4 inches or more you'd have zero interference. If it's less than that by just a little bit you'd most likely just have a little bit of...

  • Best Rooftop Cargo Box for a 2021 Toyota Sequoia
    The best roof cargo box that we have is the Yakima CBX # Y86FR. This will fit your 2021 Toyota Sequoia, it has an aggressive design that is meant to mimic the design of newer vehicles, and the mounting system is especially easy to use. I am attaching a review video of this box on a 2021 Tacoma for you to reference.

  • Will The Yakima SkyBox NX 16 Work On A 2010 Ford Expedition
    The Yakima SkyBox NX 16 Roof Cargo Box # Y95AV is not vehicle specific, as long as you have a crossbar spread that is 24-36" then the SkyBox NX 16 will fit. We do also offer the Yakima CBX Rooftop Cargo Box # Y86FR which is best suited for larger vehicles. This box has a carrying capacity of 18 cubic feet and will support up to 165lbs. The Yakima CBX also has a crossbar spread of 24-40", compared to the SkyBox at 24-36".

  • Comparing Thule Force XT XXL and Yakima CBX Roof Cargo Boxes
    I would be more than happy to compare the Thule Force XT XXL # TH6359B and Yakima CBX # Y86FR roof cargo boxes for your 2021 Toyota Sequoia! I would like to preface this answer by saying that both are high-end roof cargo boxes that you will be very happy with no matter which way you go. Although I really like both boxes, I recommend going with the Yakima CBX simply because it has some upgraded features that make it easier to use and the design of the box is newer so it matches better with...

  • Recommended Yakima Roof Rack, Cargo Box, and Bike Rack for a 2017 Kia Sorento
    I have great recommendations for each of your searches! To use one key, you will need to have the same brand. For the roof rack on your 2017 Kia Sorento, all of the roof racks have a 165-lb capacity. So, I recommend the Yakima JetStream Crossbars, part # Y00425. They're aerodynamic and fit to the rails by means of the RidgeLine Towers, part # Y00145, and the RidgeClip Fit Kit, part # Y06013. For the cargo box, I recommend the Yakima CBX Rooftop Cargo Box, part # Y86FR. It has 18 cubic...

    The Inno Aero Crossbars - Aluminum - Black - 48" Long # INXB123-2 with Inno Flush Feet # INXS100 that you mentioned are confirmed to fit the roof of your 2020 Ford Explorer ST with factory raised rails running front to back. These crossbars meet the requirements for the Yakima CBX Rooftop Cargo Box - 18 Cubic Ft - Black # Y86FR so it will be a nice setup for you. The cargo box will simply clamp around the crossbars with the included clamps. This is a very nice box which has an integrated...

  • Will Thule One-Key System Lock Cylinders Fit Yakima CBX Rooftop Cargo Box
    The Thule lock cores, like what you received with the kit # TH450400, are different than the Yakima brand so they unfortunately can't be used for the Yakima CBX Rooftop Cargo Box # Y86FR. The CBX has been confirmed to fit your 2023 BMW X5 by Yakima directly so you're good to go there.

  • Roof Rack and Thule/Yakima Roof Cargo Box Recommendation for a 2020 Toyota 4Runner
    Thank you for the information! It sounds like your 2020 Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro has the raised rails and OEM crossbar setup that we'd find on the standard 2020 Toyota 4Runner. This has very low clearance under the factory crossbars so it's definitely better to upgrade to an aftermarket system that sits higher. For your application I recommend going with the Thule WingBar Evo roof rack system because it's stylish, is easy to install, and raises the clearance height to your roof so you can...
