Will Thule Force Medium Cargo Box TH624 Fit Factory Roof Crossbars on 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee


Will the Thule Force XL fit on the factory crossbars of a 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee?


Expert Reply:

Thule's Force Medium Rooftop Cargo Box # TH6356B is designed to mount to roof crossbars of many types and shapes, including the factory-installed bars on your 2008 Grand Cherokee. This box is a confirmed fit for your vehicle.

This box's actual weight is 35-lbs. This means that whatever the GC's roof weight capacity is (you'll find this in your owner's manual) you'll need to subtract the box's weight from that. I checked an online version of the manual and it indicates a 150-lb limit. So if your roof has a 150-lb weight limit this means that you could safely load up to 115-lbs of cargo weight into the box and still stay within the car's limits. Do check your manual just to be sure.

Often customers that use rooftop cargo items also choose a tire step like the # HE4040 to make it easier to load and unload their cargo. This adjustable step comes fully-assembled, folds up for easy storage inside the GC and simply slips over a rear tire when its time to load cargo or unpack for your campsite.

Another step option that is lower in cost and useful for other applications is the Telesteps Folding Step # TE97FR. This lightweight step comes fully-assembled and folds for easy storage in the cargo box or vehicle. When you need it, just unfold it and you instantly have a foot of extra reach for loading and unloading you cargo.
