What Length Thule Crossbars for 2017 Infiniti QX80 with Factory Raised Side Rails  


Hi I’m trying to decide what length crossbar I should use on the top of my QX 80 I already have the side rails


Expert Reply:

Typically a 2017 Infiniti QX80 will use a 60" long crossbar like the # TH711500. The Wingbar Evo can be used with the Evo Raised Rail Feet # TH710401, which will attach to the raised side rails of newer Infiniti QX80's. 60" long bars would likely be the longest bars that you can safely use, as the next longest size available are 79" long, so your best bet is likely going to be those 60" Aero bars. You generally want your crossbars not extend no more than 6" outside of the side rails, and most recommended kits will take that into consideration, but you can measure to see how much space you've got and decide for yourself.

I have linked all of our Thule Aero style bars that would work with those foot packs for you to have a look at, as well as some review/installation videos of these parts. If you've got significantly more space between your side rails, you might be able to go up in length, but generally anything significantly outside of the side rails is not usable space in terms of bearing any real weight.
