Will Yakima 48-Inch Roof Rack Crossbars Fit the 2013 Dodge Dart


Will 48-inch crossbars fit on a 2013 dodge dart?


Expert Reply:

The Yakima roof rack component that you referenced, part # Y00409, is a 58-inch bar that is part of a complete rack system that fits the naked roof on your 2013 Dodge Dart. Installation of this system on your vehicle is shown in the linked video.

Crossbars that are 48-inches will not be long enough for your vehicle. The shortest crossbars that will work on your Dart are the 50-inch size.

No matter which rack you choose you will want to verify in your owners manual (or with your local dealership) the Dart roof weight capacity. It is important that the weight of what you load on the roof rack does not exceed the vehicle roof weight limit. If you are using, for example, a roof cargo box or carrier you need to account for both the weight of the cargo box and what you load into it. The combined weight cannot exceed the vehicle rating.

I have linked an article on roof racks that provides a lot of information that may be helpful to you as you decide which rack is best for your specific needs.
