How To Mount Two Thule Hullavators On a GOBI Stealth Roof Rack


2017 Jeep Wrangler 2 door soft top with a GOBI Stealth roof rack. I have 2 Wilderness Systems Pungo 105 Kayaks. I would like to mount them side by side using 2 Hullavator Pro lifts on Thule Aeroblade crossbars. Is this possible and what parts do I need?Same vehicle, same GOBI rack. If I wanted to mount the Thule Aeroblade crossbar to this same rack What towers or connectors would I need? Tubing diameter is 1" to 1 1/4".

In order to mount two Thule Hullavator Pro Kayak Carrier and Lift Assist with Tie-Downs part # TH898 on a GOBI Stealth Roof Rack your best option would be as you mentioned to install a set of Thule crossbars because there must be a crossbar overhang (crossbar extends past side rails) of 4" in order to clear which the GOBI Stealth Roof Rack doesn't have.

In order to mount Thule crossbars on a GOBI Stealth Roof Rack your best option is to use the Rapid Crossroad Feet for Thule Crossbars part # TH450R which should have no problem wrapping around the side rails. Then you can use the Thule ProBar Evo Crossbars part # TH713700 which are the only Thule crossbars long enough for two Hullavators which require a 76" long crossbar at a minimum. The Thule AeroBlade crossbars are no longer available but will work with the Rapid Crossroad Feet if needed.
