I have a great roof rack for you. Unfortunately, I confirmed with Thule that they do not have a roof rack system engineered to fit your 2021 Toyota Highlander XLT whether you have a bare roof or flush factory rails. However, we do have a similar Yakima system available.

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

- Yakima JetStream Crossbars - Aluminum - Black - 60" # Y00426
- BaseLine Towers for Yakima Crossbars - Naked Roofs # Y00146
- BaseClip Fit Kit for Yakima BaseLine Roof Rack Towers # Y06153
- BaseClip Fit Kit for Yakima BaseLine Roof Rack Towers - Qty 2 # Y06132
- BaseClip Fit Kit for Yakima BaseLine Roof Rack Towers - Qty 2 # Y06153

If you have flush factory rails, you need the following parts:

- Yakima JetStream Crossbars - Aluminum - Black - 60" # Y00426
- Landing Pad 28 for Yakima SkyLine And Control Towers # Y66VR
- x4 of the Replacement SkyLine Tower for Yakima Crossbars - Qty 1 # 8880614

With these Yakima JetStream crossbars, the aerodynamic design is almost the same as Thule WingBar Evo Crossbars like the # TH711520. With the increased wind resistance, this ultimately leads to a quieter ride and better fuel efficiency. The JetStream also comes with the exact same 3-1/8" width x 1" height and includes full-length t-slots on the top of the crossbars for t-slot mounted accessories. As far as weight capacity, both of these systems provide 165 pounds. As with all roof racks, I recommend consulting with your Toyota owner's manual to make sure your roof can handle the weight you wish to transport.
