You should not have any problems with the roof on your 2019 Toyota Highlander. When Yakima redesigned their towers for naked roofs they add two additional adjustments, toe and pitch. A Yakima rack on a 2019 or a 2020 Toyota Highlander will have front tower pitch measurement of 6º and the rear tower pitch measurement of -6º. This is done precisely for the slope in the roof of the Toyota Highlander. I have included a picture of the pitch diagram from Yakima's installation manual below.

Your Yakima rack for a 2019 Toyota Highlander with a naked roof will consist of the following:

Yakima JetStream Crossbars - Aluminum - Black - 60" Long - Qty 2, part # Y00426,
BaseLine Towers for Yakima Crossbars - Naked Roofs - Qty 4, part # Y00146,
BaseClip Fit Kit for Yakima BaseLine Roof Rack Towers - Qty 4, part # Y06130, and the
Yakima Same Key System (SKS) Lock Cores (QTY 4), part # Y07204.

This roof rack comes with elliptical shaped crossbars that help reduce wind noise and aid in efficiency. The t-channel on the JetStream crossbar will work with all channel mounted roof accessories and with those accessories that clamp on the crossbars. I have included the Yakima Same Key System (SKS) Lock Cores to secure the rack to your vehicle.

I have included product descriptions, a video review link, and an installation video link below.
