    2020 Subaru Outback

    The locking mounts that come with the CRC rod carrier are too long for the 2020 Subaru Outback roof rack so I ordered the low profile mounting kit. The low profile kit has good clearance using the 65mm bolts and works just fine. I have been using them for one month now and so far I have been very happy with the fit, quality, and performance of the kit. I definitely recommend this product.

    Works as advertised

    Needed the low profile mounting option for my Tahoe and it worked perfectly. The tamperproof attachment is rock solid and quick and easy to mount.

    Just what I needed!

    I have a large basket that takes up the entirety of my Jeep's roof. The cross bars that come with it sit within 3 inches of the basket floor, so I needed these to make the rack work. They worked exactly how I needed it to and the package comes with options in case my setup ever changes. Thanks for thinking of this scenario and having a product to make it work!

    The low profile kit is needed for Rhino carrier due to clearance on Jeep Wrangler Unlimiteds. Works great as a replacement part .
