    Anybody ever install a ladder (anywhere, hatch, side, whatever) so you can reach the rack easier? All the ones I have seen online look like they are specifically built to fit 4Runners, Jeeps, or Land Rovers. I currently have a 22 Forester Wilderness on order and I want to beef it up a bit when...

    Hey guys! Just joined and new owner of a white 2019 sport. Im looking at putting a cargo basket on top but not sure which crossbars to go with. For the basket im leaning towards the Rola 59504 basket. Im concerned with getting a crossbar system that extends out past the rails and it looking odd...

    Hi there, sold my ‘19 Forester Sport and no longer need the Yakima Lock n Load system that I purchased last summer. It is a size K and has the direct mounts to the roof bars—no crossbars needed, but you can purchase different mounts for it if you want. It’s a great rack and also has the locking...

    Hello, I was looking at my 2002 Forester L 5MT and on the passenger side, my roof rail (rail to body) has not only snapped in half, but the anchors holding it down above headliner have also broken. It's held on by 2 anchors and the roof racks. Anyone know where I can find a new one or will...

    Hey y'all, I'm new, so if I'm going about this incorrectly, I apologize. I recently purchased a 2015 Forester 2.5i limited. It's my first major purchase, and I'm quite satisfied and excited with the performance thus far and the opportunities that await. I went ahead and got some OEM cross bars...
  8. Towing and Hauling
    I hate the look and the idea of needing a cross bar if you already have raised factory rails. If I was to get a tray/basket that sat over the raised factory rails cant I just U-bolt it to them? It's still the same weight (if not less) with the same number of contact points (if not more) compared...

    Hey fam, I ordered this roof rack system off RackOutfitters last April so I've used them less than a year. I'm just looking to upgrade to a full roof rack system now so I'm trying to find these a new home. They have been the best crossbars I've ever used so far. They come with these rubber...

    This is my 2012 Forester! Its my favorite vehicle i have owned, and to me, looks amazing with some lights and a roof basket. I've also blacked out the roof rails, rear wing, handles, grille, and I bought some smokey Black headlights. Hoping to put maybe another 2 more lights on the roof basket...

    Looking into purchasing the front runner roof rack, but still trying to justify the hefty price. Can anyone provide any comments on the roof rack? Pros & cons? Or even possibly a better rack system that doesn't break the wallet? I'm for sure looking for a flat rack, hoping to invest in a...

    These forums are such a gold mine for info, I finally have the chance to giving back. I had been searching for a small'ish ski rack that would allow me to use both my Thule Atlantis 1600 and carry a couple of pairs of nordic or alpine skis. I think I found a winning combo, without going too...
  13. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    I have about 3,000 miles on my 2020 Forester Sport and ever since the first day I noticed that the factory installed roof rails have a wobble. I used the roof rack to haul bikes for about a week and the already loose roof rail's attachment points developed a horrible creaking noise. After taking...

    Hey all, First post here. Happy to be a part of the community. Already learning a ton. Recently bought a 2005 with 90k miles. I live in the NYC area and have never really needed a car, but very happy to have one right now. When I bought the Forester, the only issue was the back ends of each...
  15. Car Care
    I can't really tell what kind of treatment the factory roof rack should get when detailing and waxing the car. The rack looks like it was painted matte black from the factory, also has about 6 years of sun fading. It doesn't seem like hand polishing and waxing would be the right way to go...

    I planned to carry a full size spare on the roof of my 2019 Sport, but then realized that the darned full-size spare fits in the spare tire well (facepalm). So, I'd like to sell the Thule Aero Crossbars and the Thule Canyon XT roof basket with extension that I purchased. Ideally, I'd like to...

    I live on the North Shore of MA but I road trip all over New England to enjoy the outdoors. I just traded in my lifted 07 Nissan Xterra for a 2020 Forester Sport. It took a lot of researching and soul searching to decide to move on from my Xterra and go with a smaller vehicle. I just don’t...

    For a roof rack, I considered Yakima and Thule. I went with Yakima: 50" Jetstream bars and Timberline towers. Both Yakima and Thule have a 20%-off sale a few times a year. One of them correlates with the REI fall sale. I did this almost immediately after buying the car. I don't know if it...
