Roof Rack and Cargo Box Recommendation for 2020 Ford Explorer


Hello, I have a 2020 Ford Explorer, with a moon roof and I am looking to purchase a Roof Cargo system. I need the cross bars and the cargo box. I am finding a few options on your site but need guidance in choosing the correct one so the moon roof can still be used while the cargo system is mounted.

I checked with Yakima and they have their Jetstream roof rack part numbers # Y00426 and # Y00147 as a confirmed fit for your 2020 Ford Explorer with raised rails and the moonroof. They recommend carefully watching the setup so that the bars don't interfere with the sunroof as you open it but the bars can be positioned so that it would work fine.

Then for an easy to use cargo box that fits this rack and also has best clearance for opening the rear hatch you'd want the Thule Motion XT part # TH629706 and you'd have a really nice setup for carrying roof cargo. I attached review/install videos as well.
