Yakima seems to sell towers that fit these bars and can be used with the various cross bars they make, but they are also rather pricey.

Surfeast, thanks again for the link.

I'll second these. Mine came and I'm pretty happy with them. $50 shipped...can't beat it.

Overall height with the bars on is right about 6'-5¾". I think I can leave these on and still get in most parking garages.

Does the yakima jetstream work well on this vehicle?

Also, are these cross-bars ok for mounting ladders? My dad needs it for his new metris

I would think the accepatability of what you mount to the crossbars is based on weight.

That being said I had a Ford Van I used for a scrap business- I did curbside roving and used the roof rack for anything that didn't fit inside- including a box that was permanently mounted for pipe. I am sure I carried somewhere over 500 lbs of stuff up there at times- not to mention thousands of pounds of scrap in the bay. Once my van, rated at 8600, tipped the big scales at 11,700. And 5800 lbs leaving, yay for 15c a pound.
