Recommended Flush Mounted Roof Rack for a 2023 Kia Telluride X-line w/ Raised Side Rails

Question:

Will this work with my 2023 Kia Telluride X-line equipped with raised roof rails like those shown in your installation video? My Kia does not have the flush roof rails that your site suggests I have when shown cross bars that will fit my vehicle. If this does fit, I will need to know what width cross bars to get . Thanks!

Thanks for the pictures! I have a set of flush mounted crossbars that will work with your Kia's raised rails, however the Yakima RailBar Crossbars item # Y00447-2 won't work. They don't fit Kia's rails. It looks like they are for older model Honda's and Suzuki's.

Instead you will want the roof rack by Thule which includes the following parts:

Thule WingBar Edge Crossbars - Aluminum - Black - Qty 2 item # TH56FE

Edge Raised Rail Feet for Thule Edge Crossbars - Raised, Factory Side Rails - Qty 4 item # TH69SC

This is a flush mount system like the one you were looking at. This means it will mount within the side rails and not extend over the sides like most aftermarket roof racks do. The crossbars have a 165 lbs capacity. They are two different sizes for the front and the rear. The longer bar that goes in the rear is 41" long x 3-1/8" wide x 1" tall and the shorter bar is 37-1/2" long x 3-1/8" wide x 1" tall.

I have linked an installation video below and attached a picture so you can what this system will look like once installed.
