Rated 3 out of 5 by from really hit or miss design Pros: Adjustable, includes locks, looks great, fairly sturdy & secure. Cons: Poorly written instructions, rack accessories are not compatible out of the box*, price I purchased a hull a port setup with this rack only to discover that these crossbars are larger than any aero or square tubes. Not a huge deal, but when you spend $900 for this, a Tacoma kit, and a hull a port (#834), it'd be nice if it worked & had the right length bolts. Especially as the Thule catalogue lists full compatibility, no fine print. If you intend to add a ski, kayak, bike, or any other goodies to this real, plan on visiting your neighborhood hardware store to get adequate bolts. Hindsight: should have hit a local fab shop to weld up a ladder rack. Would be far cheaper, and probably more sturdy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor service The product itself is very good. The service from Thule leaves a lot to be desired. While removing the rack last fall one of the clamphead channels that fasten under the side of the truck box slipped down under the bed liner. I attempted to purchase a new one and the response from Thule was they don't stock them and good luck trying to find a replacement.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Tacoma Rack I have been very happy with Thule products in the past and was excited that I would be able to take my sea kayaks with me when I was pulling a trailer, as all the other racks used the trucks receiver. I started putting together the rack and discovered that the directions did not fit the model I was using. I completed making the rack, got it on the truck ($50 for adapters for the Tacoma). The rack does not adjust very well and I have been having parts literally fall off while I was driving. Having invested almost $800 into this rack I would expect higher quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these racks Bought these in July after purchasing a used Tacoma. Easy install, really makes life easier for the SUP boards, especially the 14 footers. They don't lower all the way on the Tacoma, but if I am not going to use them for a few days, they are really easy to just take the racks off, leaving the brackets in place.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better design than 5 years ago This is my second Thule Xsporter. The new model fixed every complaint I had with the old version. New version adjusts to any height, was easier to install and no longer whistles down the road. I use it on a full size Chevy 1500 and a Chevy Colorado with great results. Very strong rack; I can stand on the bars and jump up an down on them with no sign of them giving.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helps us be able to take bikes when going camping When we'd go camping we'd have to have a friend take our bikes as we couldn't take our kayaks with our bikes in the bed of Dodge Ram truck. Now we put the kayaks on the rack and our bikes, table and chairs fit easily in the bed of our truck!! We also use the rack to secure our bikes with a python cable lock so they can't easily be stolen.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love it but my wife thinks it is ugly. This rack is relatively easy to install and is great for expanding my gear hauling capacity. When the rear bar is positioned forward (away from the tailgate), I can use the Atlantis cargo box and still transport paddle boards on the remaining bar space, without taking up any of the truck bed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sport Rack These Racks are very versatile. I use them to haul kayaks so I can still use my trailer hitch for my bikes. This leaves tons of storage in the bed of the pickup. Once these are installed they are very easy to adjust and or remove.
