Will the Thule Roof Cargo Basket Fit on Factory Crossbars of a 2009 Lexus GX470


Will this carrier mount on my 2009 Lexus GX470 with my factory rails/bars? Also, will the sunroof still work with this installed?


Expert Reply:

As long as the factory crossbars on your Lexus GX470 are spaced anywhere from 20" to 57" apart, you'll be able to use the Thule Roof Cargo Basket # TH859XT-8591XT without any issues. Whether or not you can use your sunroof depends on if it sits below the crossbars when it's open, and where your crossbars are placed.

In most cases, it's unlikely that you'll be able to open the sunroof with a cargo basket attached, but it does depend on how high your sunroof comes up and where your crossbars are placed-this is different on different vehicles. Your best bet is to measure how far your crossbars are from the roof of the vehicle and then determine how high the sunroof sits when it is open.
