Video Transcript for Rhino Rack Roof Rack Installation - 2017 Nissan Titan

John: Hey guys, John, here from etrailer.com. Today we have our 2017, Nissan Titan we're test fitting the Rhino-Rhack's Vortex Aero roof rack system. This is designed to help add extra cargo carrying capacity to our vehicle. So maybe we have our bed completely full, or we're wanting to transport a kayak, which won't fit in the bed of our truck. We can toss it up here or add a cargo basket to get extra cargo carrying capacity, as well as use our hitch and maybe our truck bed.The Vortex Aero Crossbars come in black, as we have installed on our Titan today, as well as silver. Both of these options are available here at etrailer.com.

They have an aluminum construction, so they're lightweight and durable. Plus we don't have to worry about them rusting over time. Even though they are lightweight, our roof rack does have a weight capacity of 165 pounds.However, I do recommend checking out your owner's manual just to make sure we're not going over any weight ratings that the manufacturer has. Our Vortex Crossbars have an aerodynamic design. This is an upgrade from the traditional round or square crossbars, and this is going to help reduce wind noise and drag compared to those other styles.Our Vortex Aero system does come with lot cores here for our legs.

And then we also have a plastic lock core that can be upgraded, but it's out here on our cap for our crossbar. If we unlock it, we can remove it. And now we gain access to the T-slot area on the crossbar. This is used to mount different accessories that'll have the T-slot bolt with it. Normally or older accessories will just have a clamp, but some newer ones, we can utilize this for just more of a clean fit.

We'll just slide the T-slot in there, then trim the top rubber, a rubber strip here to make it look natural. And this rubber strip is used to help cut down on wind noise and drag. There'll be a whistling sound without this rubber strip installed. So it's a really nice feature that Rhino-Rack includes with the crossbar.Rhino-Rack did think of our vehicles' protection when it comes to their roof racks. This bottom part of the fit kit here, this is rubber, and so it won't damage our paint as well as this clamp.

It actually has a thin piece of rubber here so we don't have metal touching our vehicle. Let's get some measurements here to see how this interacts with the roof of our vehicle. From the roof to the bottom of the crossbar, is about three and a half inches. You shouldn't really have any problems mounting any accessories on here. There's plenty of room for any clamps that we'll use.And then from the roof to the top of the crossbar sits, about four and three quarter or five inches. That's a good measurement to keep in mind for if you want to keep this installed on top of our vehicle when we pull into a garage or something like that, or if we have an accessory that we want to mount on here. We can take the height of the accessory and then add five inches so we know how high that's going to sit on our vehicle.Rhino-Racks clamp system here, sits nice and secure in our vehicle. I can actually grab the Crossbars over the legs and our entire vehicle moves when I shake it. That just gives us some peace of mind of how secure this is fitting to our vehicle. Now that we've gone over some of the features of this crossbar system, let's go ahead and install it together.We'll start off by removing the cover on our leg. Use the included keys and it will swing out to the left. And then we will move over to our fit kit here, which has three pieces, the plastic piece, rubber piece, and then our clamp. Won't mess with our clamp till we get the crossbar up on the roof. But the plastic piece has an arrow, as well as the rubber pieces. It has an arrow. If we refer to our instructions, it tells us how these need to be oriented according to how we mount the crossbar to our roof rack.So we will put the rubber piece in place. You just got to kind of move the lips around and make sure it sits on there, nice and tight. And then our instructions say it had this arrow pointing outwards. So you just press the clips to secure on our foot. Next we'll grab our crossbar and then we will take the measurement tabs that go underneath. There are the measurement strips that go underneath the crossbar. They're stored on the crossbar so when we open up the package, make sure you get them out. And then these have measurements on them and we'll refer to our instructions for exactly where we need to cut these. So that gives us an exact measurement for where our legs will be mounted on the underside of our Crossbars.For our application today, we need to clip at 157. And once you make your clip. I'll just take a razor blade here and just kind of flatten everything out. Make sure there're no pieces that are sticking straight up, because then what we got to do is put our leg and butted up right up against this plastic piece.So got everything straightened out, place the zero and first we push that all the way to the track till it stops. Now we're ready to add our leg to the underside of our crossbar. With our leg we have this T-bolt here and we're going to need to loosen up the screw. So we'll flip our leg over and then use the included tool to loosen up that bolt. And now the T-bolt sits more loose. We can slide it right on to our crossbar.Say it, and then cruise, and we're going to slide this all the way up to the measurement, the rubber strip that we just cut. We use the tool and just tighten down that T-bolt again. And then we use the tool, this actually is a little unique. It has a slight curve to it. We're going to tighten down this bolt until it straightens out. Once it straightens out, now we know we have the right torque on that bolt.Insert this, the remaining strip, then we're going to cut that off and clean it up a little bit here and we will repeat the same process for the other side of the crossbar. Now that we have the legs on the bottom of our crossbar, it's time to install the rubber strips. There will be four that are actually hidden inside the Crossbars. We'll take the cap off, turn the crossbar upside down the fallout, and we will just feed them through. We've already got three of the strips installed. So it's bottom up end to end. You'll kind of wiggle it back and forth because there's a groove here. So try to feed one through one end of the crossbar T-slot and just kind of feed it back and forth until it lays flat here. Any bubbles, just push in and again, feed it back and forth. Now that we have it all in place, we will go ahead and cut off any excess and then we place on our cap. And now we are ready to toss our crossbars up on top of our roof.A few things I'd like to note before we set it on top, make sure that the Rhino-Rack sticker is going to be facing forward for a vehicle. And then there are some stickers included with your kit and you can put the sticker under each of the feet so that we can remember exactly how it's sitting on our truck. So if you take the crossbars off, we need easily put them back up. We already have our front crossbar mounted. According to the instructions, there will be measurements on where we need to place it here between our. We'll measure from in between our doors here up and now we'll place the rear bar. We'll take a measurement from our instructions to figure out where we need to have this rear bar sitting. Kind of set it in the general area, measure from the center of the front crossbar back to the center of your rear crossbar.That looks good. So we'll move to the driver's side now and move that leg around till it's sitting where it needs to be as well. Now that we have our rear crossbar in place, we will loosen up this bolt here, and we'll take our clamp from our foot pack, our fit kit. We'll put it through this hole here on the clamp and then get it started in the nut that's already sitting in our leg. Now this vehicle is a little bit tricky, most vehicles, there won't be a rubber strip here, or we'll look at this piece of trim and it just pulls right down. This rubber piece though is permanently installed on the truck. And so we're going to lower this outer lip and feed our clamp in there. And then just need to push it down and try to get this corner as tight up against the vehicle frame as we can.So this is definitely something where we're going to get it started on one side and then moved to the other side and get it started over there and just moved back and forth until we have the clamps sitting tight up against the vehicle. So let's get in tight. Let's move to the other side and then we'll just keep working back and forth until it sits nice and tight like we have here at the front. On the driver's side, this is kind of what we ran into before or having a little trouble getting this clamp to sit well. So we're just going to take a spacer tool here. We have a couple of different options here at etrailer.com and we're just going to try to push down and make enough room for this clamp to sit comfortably against our doorframe. Another thing I had to do is while I'm tightening down this clamp, right, tighten this down, and I'm just kind of pulling our crossbar a little bit to try to get to fit.Right, normally on other vehicles that don't have this upper lip, it's not this interesting to install, but this one's just, this specific vehicle is a little different. So you have to play with this rubber piece to get it to sit nice and tight up against the vehicle. Just so we know that we're not. Our crossbars aren't going to be moving around and that's why we're heading down the road. So we're going to make sure it's seated properly behind the seal. Also, one thing I just figured out is, I had this clamp that's actually sitting on top of one of these ridges, is causing the clamp to sit at an angle, which was also causing problems.So make sure you don't do that when you're installing it and just get it up a little snug. And we're just going to go back and forth on the other side, tightening down until we get this torque. This torque tool we do as we tighten it down and this line will actually straighten out and that tells us that we have our bolts tight enough. And with everything torqued down, we can place our covers back over our legs.Awesome, and now we are ready to install accessories to carry our kayaks or bikes or ladders, anything else down the road with our vehicle. And that's going to conclude our test fit of the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbar system on our 2017, Nissan Titan. Thanks for watching.

Seamless installation. The instructions were well thought out and easy to follow. A year after installation the contact points are solid as when first installed. The rack system matches the truck and gives it a great look.




by:

Fits beautifully! Easy directions. The additional instruction sheets that were specific to MY truck made this whole process stress-free.




by:

The product is sturdy, well built and attractive. On its own, only a four. Your video installation instructions got you the 5th star, as the printed instructions from Rhino were a complete waste of paper.




by:

Great product, I've never used the clamp down style before, but they are just as solid if not more so than the bolted down ones.

Review from a similar DK in Roof Rack


Installed this and 65" Vortex Areo crossbars on a 2015 RAM 5500 chassis cab/crew cab. It is listed to fit 1500 to 3500 RAM's and neither Rhino-Rack or etrailer would confirm it would fit the 5500. My research suggested there was not much, if any difference, between the 3500 and 5500 crew cab, so ordered it any way. Installation was relatively easy, fit seemed to be good and have made multiple 200-300 mile trips with a 75lb kayak. Good price, great customer service and fast delivery through etrailer.


Comments
Neither Rhino-Rack nor etrailer.com have tested the roof rack on a 5500 ChassisCab, which is why we couldnt confirm the fit.

Review from a similar DK in Roof Rack


We originally got this rack system (Custom DK Fit Kit for 4 Rhino-Rack 2500 Series Roof Rack Legs - Naked Roof Item #DK427) mostly for our Kayak racks on our 2015 Ford F-150, which worked great. Then we totaled our F-150 and the racks actually fit on our new 2022 GMC Sierra 2500 HD P/U. We took it on a 16,000 mile trip from the East Coast to Alaska with both 12 ft. kayaks on the top. Through the various speeds (sometimes up to 80 mph), weather conditions, and the high crosswinds of the mid-West, the racks help up perfectly. No issues or problems. I would recommend these to anyone.

Fairly easy installation. Read the instructions thoroughly before hand and get familiar with the parts. Take care when installing mounting studs onto car itself so as not to strip or cross thread them. Once installed they look great.


Comments
Fantastic! Very little noise on highway and sturdy.

Review from a similar DK in Roof Rack


I've had this Rhino Rack 2500 series for one year. I've outfitted the rack with one "J hook" style kayak holder and one "cradle" kayak holder. I am able to securely travel with two kayaks on the roof of my 2014 Honda Civic sedan without issue. During the one year I've had this rack I've traveled over 1,000 miles with two 12 foot+ kayaks on my roof. I can set cruise control at 70mph and not worry about the rack failing. I rate it four (4) stars because the cradles will sometimes move during a long drive and have to be readjusted. This is something that is more cosmetic in the since it looks slightly off, however it does not affect the racks security.

Review from a similar DK in Roof Rack


I bought these to be able to haul 4 kayaks on the roof of my 2017 Ram Mega cab while pulling our fifth wheel. We have use the Rhino Rack several times including a trip from Kentucky to Montana and back with no issues. I highly recommend the Rhino Rack for extra cargo capacity on top of your pickup. The instructions were good and installation was pretty straight forward. I plan to take the system off in the winter which will be easy to do.

Review from a similar DK in Roof Rack


Fit my Honda CRV perfectly and the whole kit was easy to install. The cargo box I ordered for in the racks perfectly. Of course there was some noise when traveling, and also reduced gas mileage, but that is to be expected. The very slight whistle when driving at higher speeds was easy to tune out. Service from etrailer was great and shipping was quick! I also appreciate all of the information and tutorials available. Would order from this company again.

Review from a similar DK in Roof Rack


I bought this last yr to haul my kayaks on my Toyota camry. Being 5'2", getting them on top of my SUV was next to impossible for me and my daughters. Since then, I have traveled from Michigan, all the way to the west coast with two 13' ft kayaks. These racks have been absolutely perfect in every aspect. I mounted them myself, and checked them regularly to see if they needed adjusted. Not once did they loosen or move. They with stood Traveling with speed limits reaching 80 mph on I84, along with the windy weather on our cross-country trip. My car moved around from the high winds, and the racks stayed put. These racks have by far reached and surpassed every expectation I had when purchasing them. I would not recommend another. Only thing I would recommend is showing installation for both front and back bars, since the measurements are slightly different for both. As I had to figure this out my self, after watching the installation video. Thank you Rhino for providing such a high quality product.

As you can tell by the photo, they never came. Thank you [vendor] for having a tow hitch basket in stock. They saved the day as my other storage option did not arrive, even with the additional $$ paid for faster shipping.

Review from a similar DK in Roof Rack


From the minute Erica, from etrailer answered the phone and took my order, the process of getting my new Rhino-Rack 2500 was easy. Once my auto body shop installed the rack, I saw what a quality product the Rhino-Rack 2500 is. It fits my 2017 Toyota Corolla like it was from the factory. It looks great on the car and the functionality is excellent. I love it and highly recommend etrailer and Rhino-Rack products

Great product. I put the removable racks and brackets on my car as soon as I received them in the mail and have not removed them since. They are used everyday to hold my Yakima rooftop box.

Great system and works seamlessly with Thule Hulavator on 2018 Ram 2500. Bailey was a big help in putting the system together for me.
