    I installed my Thule rack when I got my truck, and always thought the crossbars were a little far apart.. The measurement given in the book was 38 3/4" center to center.

    When I tried affixing my roof box (Also a Thule) It didn't go! WTF! After playing the runaround with Thule all week, I find out there is a revision to the instructions that put the bars 26" apart.

    The revised instructions are attached.

    Do you have enough room on your cross-bars for the box and a rack?
