There are a couple options for a cargo box setup on your 2018 Nissan Murano SL with a bare roof. As far as the box, I recommend the Yakima SkyBox 16 Roof Cargo Box - 16 cu ft # Y07335 or the Yakima SkyBox 21 Rooftop Cargo Box - 21 cu ft # Y07337. The great thing about the SkyBoxes is that they include the SuperLatch system that ensures the lid is latched closed and locked. With this mechanism, the key cannot be removed unless the lid is closed properly. In addition, the SkyBoxes include 2 Same Key System (SKS) locks that secure gear in the box and secure the box to the crossbars.

With the Yakima SkyBox, you are correct that you will need a compatible crossbar system. For the most economical choice we carry, I recommend the following setup:

- Round 48" CrossBars for Yakima Roof Rack System # Y00408
- BaseLine Towers for Yakima Crossbars - Naked Roofs # Y28TR
- RoundBar SL Adapter for Yakima BaseLine, SkyLine, TimberLine, and RidgeLine Towers # Y03536
- BaseClip Fit Kit for Yakima BaseLine Roof Rack Towers # Y06126
- BaseClip Fit Kit for Yakima BaseLine Roof Rack Towers # Y06138
- (Optional for extra security) Yakima Same-Key Lock Cores # Y07204

Question:

Before ordering, what is the difference between BaseClip Fit Kit for Yakima BaseLine Roof Rack Towers # Y06126 and BaseClip Fit Kit for Yakima BaseLine Roof Rack Towers # Y06138.

The difference between the two Baseclip Fit Kits is that the # Y06126 is designed to fit the towers of your front crossbar while the # Y06138 is designed to fit the towers of your rear crossbar. Sometimes, vehicles require 2 sets of fit kits if they have different attachment points at the front and rear of the vehicle or if the roof tapers (goes from wider to narrower or vice versa). Our installation team here at etrailer (as well as Yakima) have confirmed that your 2018 Nissan Murano SL does required two different fit kits to install crossbars on your bare roof.
