I do have some options for you but I spoke to my contact at Thule and they said the Thule Pulse Large Rooftop Cargo Box part # TH615 cannot be used with a Thule Xsporter Pro Adjustable Height Truck Bed Ladder Rack like part # TH500XT because the crossbars are too wide. The Pulse will only fit crossbars up to 3-5/16" wide and the Xsporter crossbars are 3-1/2" wide.

The Yakima SkyBox 16 Rooftop Cargo Box part # Y07335 is compatible with crossbars up to 3-1/2" wide x 1-11/16" tall so it should in theory work with your Xsporter so long as you can get the crossbar spread down to 36". The other option you have is a roof basket, the Thule Trail XT Roof Cargo Basket part # TH865XT which lists maximum crossbar dimensions of 3-1/2" wide x 1-3/4" tall so it should also work in theory as well. I can always go test fit these with the Xsporter crossbars if needed.

If you can give me the year, make, model, and cab type of the vehicle I can then get you a system to use the Thule Pulse.
