Roof Rack Recommendation for 2016 Kia Sorento with Factory Flush Rails

Question:

Can I use the roof rack/cross bars with an after market sunroof? Im concerned of the weight limit now that the original structure has been altered. I am looking to purchase cross bars for a 2016 Kia Sorento with after market sunroof. The rails are flush mount that run front to back. What would you suggest? Thanks!

Helpful Expert Reply:

An aftermarket sunroof is uncharted territory as far as roof capacity is concerned since our roof rack manufacturers and the vehicle manufacturer never would have tested that configuration. What I would recommend you do is check with the manufacturer of the sunroof and see what they recommend for if a rack can be installed.

If they say you'd be fine the Rhino Rack part numbers # RRVA126B-2 and # RRSX023 is a confirmed fit for the factory raised rails of your 2016 Kia Sorento and would be a great choice. See install video attached for more info.
