Do You Recommend the Inno Box 320 or the Inno Wedge 660 on My 2021 Ram ProMaster City?

Question:

I actually prefer the look of the 320 matte/utilitarian/shorter but INNO markets the 660 on its quietness. The wind noise is a consideration for the long drives. Is there any feedback or data related to the wind noise between the two models? Thanks for the great job you do with explaining products and application!

As far as the noise level of the Inno Box 320 Rooftop Cargo Box - 9 cu ft # IN94FR and the Inno Wedge 660 - 11 cu ft # INBRM660BK, the Wedge 660 does have additional shape features in the side of the lid and rear of the box that are absent on the 320. I went ahead and attached a couple photos of the Wedge 660 with arrows and a circle that point out the differences in the side and rear design. These different designs in the shape of the box decrease wind resistance (and thus, noise).

As far as wind resistance data, we unfortunately do not have any. Although, the Inno Wedge 660 has many great customer feedback ratings. Given the improved design and the extra space, I recommend going with the Inno Wedge 660.

If you are looking for a compatible roof rack system that is required to transport the Inno Wedge 660, the roof racks available for your 2021 Ram ProMaster City depend on if you have a bare roof or raised factory rails.

If you have a bare roof, I recommend the following setup:

- Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars - Aluminum - Black - 54" # RRVA137B-2
- Rhino-Rack Quick Mount Legs for Vortex Aero Crossbars - RTC and RT Roof Rack Tracks # RRRLT600
- Ditch Brackets for Rhino-Rack RLT600 Quick Mount Legs - Fixed Mounting Point # RRQMFK18
- Rubber Pads for Rhino-Rack RLT600 Legs - Fixed Mounting Points # RRQMFK19
- Base Wedges for Rhino-Rack Quick Mount Legs - 5 mm # RRQMW05

The aerodynamic design of the Vortex Aero crossbar system is a great way to complete your setup. With this particular system, you will have 220 pounds of maximum weight capacity. I recommend confirming with your vehicle's owner's manual to make sure your roof can handle that much weight. The Inno Wedge 660 will easily clamp onto these bars.

If you have raised rails on your vehicle, I recommend the following parts:

- Yakima CoreBar Crossbars - Steel - Black - 50" # Y00421
- TimberLine Towers for Yakima Crossbars - Raised, Factory Side Rails # Y00147
- Yakima Same-Key System Lock Cores # Y07204

The benefit of the CoreBars is that they do not come with top channels. This is particularly relevant because there is no channel strip for wind to cross (which avoids potential noise). With this setup, you will have a maximum capacity of 220 pounds. As with the previous system, it is always a great idea to confirm with your owner's manual to make sure it can handle that much weight. The Inno Wedge 660 will also be able to clamp around the CoreBars.
