How to Install the Rhino Rack Roof Rack on a 2019 Chevrolet Suburban


Adam: Hi, everyone, Adam, with etrailer.com. Today we're going to be taking a look at the Rhino-Rack roof rack system on our 2019 Chevrolet Suburban. So we do have these silver 59 inch crossbars on here right now, but we also have them in black so if you think that'll look better on your Suburban, whatever one you think, just go ahead and grab the best one for you. So, we are going to be able to put up quite a decent amount of stuff on this roof rack. It does have a weight capacity of 165 pounds, so be sure to check your owner's manual of your vehicle to make sure it's going to be able to handle that weight, but it will take any T-Track Accessory and anything that'll wrap around the bars. If you have a J Style Kayak Carrier, Canoe Carrier, or even maybe even just a Cargo Carrier just to get all that luggage out of the cabins, free up some space for some of your passengers.So, I do have the Vortex Aero Bars on here right now.

And as you can see, it does have a nice aerodynamic shape to it so it's going to cut down on a lot of that wind noise that you get at high speeds. It is made of aluminum, so it's not going to rust away and it will be able to hold all of your T-Track Accessories up top, but we will have to trim this little rubber piece here. So the cap on the end here does have a key with it, but we do sell separately a locking core cap as well. So if you would like it to match our foot kit here, then go in etrailer.com and grab those, and we will actually have locks already built into these feet. A lot of them don't come with that, which is always nice, very easy to undo and it's just going to keep your roof rack from going anywhere.As you may be able to tell, we actually have some other mounting holes.

So we have different options whenever choosing where we're going to put our roof rack set up. I just chose the front two just because, but if the back is going to suit your needs better, you can go ahead. It's going to fit just the same on the back as it does in the front. So we are going to add to the height of our Suburban, so let's just go over some of those measurements, just so you know. From the top of our roof to the bottom of our bar is going to be about three and a half inches and from our roof here, all the way to the top of our bar is going to be about four and three quarter inches.And one of the best things is it does have fixed mounting points and it's really easy to install so let's just go ahead and show you how easy it is.

So one of the first things we want to do is assemble our feet. We are going to get two different pieces that's going to mount to our fixed rails and what we're going to do is actually slide this underneath. And there is a little rib here, so it's going to slip around this edge pretty nicely. Might have to stretch it a little bit to get to fit, once you get that we're going to push these little rubber knobs through, and then we can place this on our fixed rails on our Suburban. We are going to secure these down with our Allen bolts.

We're going to put a flat washer and then we are going to put our pressure washer, set it into place that's pushed down a little bit and then just drive them in by hand on both sides and they can go through, and take the tool that was provided and tighten them down properly.Now we can assemble our feet. Some are going to come already preassembled, and all it is is just going to be this plate and a screw. So what we're going to do is drop this down with our two washers in that hole, and then take this square piece and thread it on there. Now we can slide these in, after we remove our caps, we can go ahead and put our caps back on and lock them into place. You can repeat that same exact process for the other side. Now we can go ahead and put these on our roof.We're going to get them into place first, once we get them into place, we're going to adjust it just to make sure that this bar is evenly spread. And once it is, I'm going to try to hold this in the same spot I had it. Now what we're going to do, is going to take this bolt here and with both of our washers on there and put it down into this hole here. I'm going to start it with my hands a little bit, and then come in here with a 10 millimeter socket or wrench, tighten it down. I did notice that I couldn't fit a socket in there, and this wrench definitely gets the job done pretty easily. Once you're done there, you can put your cap in there and lock it into place. Make sure everything's nice and secure, and if it is you ready to load it up. Well everyone thanks for tuning in and taking a look at the Rhino-Rack roof system on our 2019 Chevrolet Suburban..
