      Great bars, and a potential fix for whistling sound :))

      These are great bars, I had one issue with them which was on my vehicle I had significant (rather annoying) whistling from speeds 30-50mph. The whistle persisted with the rubber strips in or out. I just found a great solution! I Removed the strip from the top of the front bar and cut it to size and inserted it on the underside of the bar. No more whistle. I think Yakima should provide stripping for both sides of the bars and would probably help quite a bit.

      Great experience so far. Works well for my system.

      I am running XL or L crossbars depending on my trip requirements. I am using these on the Overhaul HD adjustable towers attached to a Retrax XR Pro Tonneau on a 2019 Raptor (5.5' bed).
      The Large sticks out a few inches from the tower on each side allowing me to fit both a large roof top tent (Tepui Autana 3 Ruggedized) and an awning (ARB). The XL sticks out an additional 5" per side which allows the mounting of the Yakima skinny warrior basket between the tent and awning!
      I have not had any bowing or whistling. I have trimmed some of the rubber gasket on the top, so even the top has some of the channel exposed depending on what I am carrying. Overall, I am very happy with these bars.

      Whistle While You Work

      I haven't seen any other reviews so I thought I'd post my experience. I purchased a set of small length racks to replace round bars that were slightly bowing under the weight of my hardshell carrier when it was loaded. While I got a substantial amount of wind noise with my round bars, that doesn't seem to be a problem with these. HOWEVER, I do get whistling while driving between 15mph-60mph enough that my wife commented a few times about the annoyance. At highway speeds (60+), the whistle disappears. I can't tell if the whistle is coming from the open bottom T-channel or the end caps. Note: the bars are directional and so I made sure to mount them arrow pointing forward. I would recommend the bars for heavy loads, but anything <165lbs, just go with the other options.
