CARGO BOXES (AKA Ski Box / Roof Box / Roof Pod) Cargo Boxes are our most popular selling rack attachment. Cargo boxes mount directly to the crossbars of the rack and come in many shapes and sizes. Short, Wide, Long, and even Low-profile designs are available that help to clear your garage door height. Depending on your rack configuration, Cargo boxes can be mounted over the roof, truck canopy or even a truck bed.
Depending on the roof style of your vehicle, you may need to add Feet, Cross- bars, and Rails. Many of our customers with factory equipped Crossbars prefer to replace them with more rigid crossbars from Thule or Yakima, allowing for higher load ratings and a more vibration-free at- tachment for your gear.
