Rated 2 out of 5 by from Instructions unclear The installation instructions left a lot to be desired, I had to refer to a lot of other forums and youtube videos to get through the installation process. I was installing them onto a 2020 Jeep Grant Cherokee, ad very nearly sent them back because the rubber casings fit so awkwardly onto my track. Finally I learned that the poorly fitting rubber casings were by design, and not to worry about it. The tools provided also made it very difficult to complete the install, as the height of the wrench was too tall, making the tightening maneuver almost impossible to do. Overall installation felt difficult and confusing, and the end result did not feel secure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Upgrade I had the old style kit for my element since 2007 and it was still fine but I wanted to upgrade. This kit has less pieces and is easy to install. I got the 60 inch square evo bars for extra room so if you go that route for the element know that it is the absolute limit for the setting on the distance across the car...meaning the two feet can not be any closer because the cutout slot will not let them go any closer. Leave the hardware kind of loose or you will be stressing to get it to fit, then tighten up later...and yes I know my car is filthy

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unnecessary Proprietary Engineering Poor Support I bought this for a 2017 Highlander and attempted to install. The top of one of the bolts sheered off when tightening. I was not applying a lot of pressure, just wanted it to be snug. After much searching and a call directly to Thule, the only option is to buy a new fit kit. No replacement parts are available. And… due to current demand, no fit kits are available. The bolt has two different threads. And, the metal plate that sits on top of the rubber shock-mount foot only accommodates the smaller diameter threaded part. A single bolt with one thread pattern would be easy to find and make this useable again. Unfortunately, that is not the way Thule designed their product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Quality item, but... Overall, I'm pleased with the roof rack, but I wonder why it attaches at fixed single screw locations. The Grand Cherokee roof track has rolled edges as if a sliding mount was possible, but Thule uses a single screw attachment instead. When Thule and Mopar engineers get together and improve this interface, let me know!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Buyer beware - See user manual before you purchase Read through user manual before you purchase. What's pictured on the main page is not what you get. I have a 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee with a factory track and the clasp that comes with KIT 183142 faces the wrong way and will NOT clasp on to the factory track. The only thing that mounts your kit to the rail it the 4 bolts. I purchased the Wingbar Evo 135, Rapid podium and the KIT 18342 for a support for my Tupui rooftop tent and Im crossing my fingers that the 4 bolts is what's suppose to support and secure this to the rails. The 2015 Jeep rails only have the outer side of the rail with a lip for the clasps to grab onto as the inner rail is flush with nothing for the clasps to grab on to. HEADS UP

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very secure The instructions were very straightforward, just had to use the included torx allen wrench to take the plugs out of the track, install the mounting bolt and bracket, and then tie it all to the footpack with two bolts. Took a little bit of touch to get the bolts to catch, but once they did it was on there solid. Very happy with the design!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Allowed me to move the my roof rails to newer car This kit allowed me to move my existing roof rack system to a newer vehicle so I did not need to purchase an entirely new setup. (Original was a 07 CR-V / Newer 15 CR-V) The product is good but the response to my questions did not get answered until after I decided to try it. In the end everything worked out.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Thule fit kit 4064 for Subaru Outback The delivery was very slow. The vehicle specific instructions were terrible, especially for using this for mounting a Hullavator.
