Question Thule Xsporter question

Anybody with a Thule Xsporter and a full size bed have photos of how low the racks can be adjusted? I want to double check that they can go lower than the cap.
Also, any other input would be great, ability to move easily?

I miss my TracRac sliding system, trying to find an alternative that will allow me to park in the garage.
thanks

I don't have the 6' bed but I'm sure the plastic bed material flares at the bottom just like my 5' does. I cut the bottom of mine and it sits below the cab.

I have the thule racks and a 6 foot bed, without cutting the bottom of the racks mine can be set about an inch or two below the top of the cab

here ya go, the bottom of the racks hit the inside of the bed where the cubby and outlet are as you can see. i bought the racks and toolbox the day after i bought my truck, i use them all the time. i think these are much cleaner looking compared to the trac racks or a traditional steal lumber rack. if you get these make sure you use the rubber strips, without them the racks will whistle bad. i cut the rubber things into 3 sections , one long section for the middle and two little strips about 4 inches for the ends. if you do this you can leave the stops on and still have the rubber strip, or take the stops off so it looks cleaner haha. i fit into my 6 foot garage door no problem.
