Does anyone have experience with the factory roof cross bars? I want to add cross bars so I can carry a roof box, but I'm not a huge fan of after market solutions which mount a tower to the factory roof rails. I'm hoping the factory bars are flush with the side rails?

I've got the tear drop shaped Thule Aero Bars mounted on mine, and they look really sharp - much better than the factory cross bars. The roof rail mounts are technically not "towers," and are fairly low profile. And there's the added advantage that the mounts slide to any position you choose. The Thule mounts and bars combined only add 4 inches of clearance height to my vehicle (80" total height so still easily less than 7 feet).
