Will the Extended Version of the Vegabond X # VX201-VX202 Fit My 2016 Jeep Cherokee with Mopar Bars?


Will this extended version fit on the 2016 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk using the Mopar cross bars?

I have a great alternative for you. While your 2016 Jeep Cherokee has enough roof length and crossbar spread for you to mount the Kuat Vagabond X Roof Cargo Basket and 2 Bike Carrier - Steel - 73" x 41" - 160 lbs VX201-VX202 (with the extension), you will not be able to fully open the rear hatch of your vehicle while the Vegabond X is mounted due to the 73-inch length of the basket.

With that being said, if you have a 2016 Jeep Cherokee with a bare roof along with your Mopar Crossbars, and if you want a rooftop basket that will allow you to open your rear hatch, I recommend the Yakima MegaWarrior Large Roof Rack Cargo Basket - Steel - 52" Long x 48" Wide # Y07080. The MegaWarrior includes a 135 pound basket weight capacity. However, it is important to consult with your user's manual to make sure that you do not exceed the recommended weight capacity for your 2016 Jeep Cherokee. Also, I recommend measuring your crossbar length to make sure they can accommodate the 48-inch width of the MegaWarrior.

If you have a the flush factory rail system along with your Mopar Crossbars, I recommend the Yakima OffGrid Roof Cargo Basket - Steel - 44" Long x 40" Wide - 165 lbs # Y07138. The OffGrid has an impressive maximum weight capacity of 165 (if it doesn't exceed the recommended roof capacity of your vehicle). As with the MegaWarrior, I recommend measuring your crossbar length to make sure they can accommodate the 40-inch width of the OffGrid.
