Thanks for reaching out!

The Rhino-Rack roof rack for your 2022 Mazda CX-5 is a great selection that I know you'll be happy with, and it includes the parts you referenced:

46" Vortex Crossbars - # RRVA118B-2
RCL Legs - # RRRCL4
RCP Fit Kit - # RRRCP48-BK

The fit kit you're talking about installs with bolts that mount to points under the channel trim on your roof right above your doors. You don't have to modify your roof but you will need to cutout some holes for the bolts to install through that trim so you're able to keep it in place.

We actually had the opportunity to do this same installation on a 2015 Mazda CX-5 that I'm linking for you to check out.

If you let me know what you plan on using the roof rack for I'd be more than happy to make some recommendations for you!
