The weight limit is not 150lb. It says 125 evenly distributed in the Frontier manual.
I see now you were replying to travhale lolThe weight limit is not 150lb. It says 125 evenly distributed in the Frontier manual.
Yes, what's funny? I wasn't being smart, my reply was in response to Burton... just making sure that the OP, and anyone else who might read this, is clear that the ratings for the frontier and xterra roof racks are not the same.Notice I said Xterra lol
Nissan manual says that the weight limit for the roof rack is 150lbs.
That's what I did with my Xterra. Ditched the crossbars as they are the limiting factor. For the most part. You have the factory mounting holes that with any heavy load will take quite a long, long time to show any effects, if any. I had a DepHep basket with extension but moved to the Maxterra drop-in roof-tray to lower the mounting points for my RTT. It sits a couple inches lower than a comparable setup with the DepHep. Makes a big difference when you are multiplying the load factor and reducing the C.o.G o n your rig with an RTT.That's not great, but its 3 girls worth of 50lb suitcases--Better than nothing! What if I scrap the factory crossbars & mount a platform or basket to the main tubes in their place? Would the stock load ratings still apply, or would that replace the weakest link in the system & buy me a bit more capacity?
