If you have factory crossbars currently on your 2000 Nissan Xterra, the Curt Basket # C18115-117 will work as long as your crossbars do not exceed 3" wide x 1-5/8" tall. In order to know for sure, I recommend measuring the width and height of your crossbars. Also, you will need to determine if your crossbars are adjustable in order to accommodate the required crossbar spread of 15", 22", or 29". The way to do this is to simply measure the space between your crossbars at different adjustable points.

If you find that you do not have the dimensions required on your factory crossbars, the Aluminum Roof Mounted Cargo Basket - 44" Long x 39" Wide x 7" Deep # 288-09200 is a great alternative. This is because the Aluminum Roof Mounted Cargo Basket will accommodate crossbars up to 2" tall x 4-3/4" wide. As far as crossbar spread, your crossbars need to be able to adjust to between 17-3/4" - 24-3/4".

If you have raised rails on your Xterra, we do have a great crossbar system that will work with the Curt basket. That involves the following parts:

- Inno Square Crossbars - Steel - Black - 42" Long # INB107
- Inno Feet for Square Crossbars - Raised Side Rails - Black # INFR

The Inno Square crossbars come with locking covers for theft-deterrence of you rack. In addition, you will be able to accommodate up to 140 pounds of cargo on this setup. As with all roof rack systems, I recommend confirming with your vehicle's owner's manual to make sure that your roof can support that much weight.

If you need straps to secure the cargo to your baskets, I recommend the etrailer Cam Buckle Straps # E98876-4.
