Expert Reply:

Since you asked about the 54 inch Rhino-Rack bars, your 2017 Toyota Highlander will have flush side rails, and the reason that's important is because of the crossbar spread, which is half of what determines a fit, along with the crossbar size. But the quick answer is yes, both rooftop cargo boxes you mentioned will fit the Rhino-Rack roof rack on your '17 Highlander with flush side rails:

- Yakima SkyBox 16 Roof Cargo Box # Y07335
- Thule Pulse Large Rooftop Cargo Box # TH615

If you don't have the Rhino-Rack roof rack on your 2017 Highlander just yet, the complete rack set up consists of the following:

- Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars - 54" Long - Silver # RRVA137S-2 or Black # RRVA137B-2
- RCL Legs for Rhino-Rack Crossbars # RRRCL4
- Custom RCP Fit Kit # RRRCP31-BK

In regards to listing out the other rooftop boxes and accessories that work, these crossbars are standard size and compatible with all other accessories from other brands such as Yakima and Thule. So any type of list would really not be feasible as it could be thousands of products, but if there is something specific apart from these cargo boxes you can let me know and I can find out for you.
