            Comments about THULE 422XT Xsporter Rack System with Load Stop:

            I like the fact that the crossbars have a locking system that is easy to use to prevent theft. As long as all brackets are lined up properly the bars are easily adjustable. You can remove the bars and store in your garage if you do not plan on using unlike some (other) rack systems. I installed by myself in two hours. The only thing I did not like was I could not find torque specs for tightening brackets to the side of my truck bed. Also I had to remove the rubber gaskets on the base of my brackets as they would not sit properly otherwise.

            Comments about THULE 422XT Xsporter Rack System with Load Stop:

            Works well for long items. Cross-rails are removable, but awkward because they bind if you don't keep them perfectly level when moving up or down. Locks work well. The plastic strips constantly fall out. Plastic strips not compatible with load stops.

            Comments about THULE 422XT Xsporter Rack System with Load Stop:

            I purchased this rack for my 2005 Tacoma with the "new" rail system in the bed, requiring the XK-1 adapters. I bought this rack to have multiple height settings, specifically the very lowest ones close to the bed. But when installed, only the very top two height adjustments (just over the cab and right at the cab) work due to the curvature of the Tacoma bed where it slightly curves inward. This curve does not allow the rack to go down in to the bottom three height settings (the settings I bought this rack for specifically). I am at a loss at why after six years of the new Tacoma body style that Thule has not fixed this issue. After trying to find help with this on the internet, I found others have the exact same issue with their Tacoma (I wish I would have seen these comments before I dopped so much money in to this rack). The rack would be perfect for a Tundra because the bed is deeper and does not curve inward. Also, since it is made of aluminum, unless you slide the rack up and down perfectly on both sides at the same time (hard to do with one person and when it is tight on the Tacoma), the aluminum will gall and leave permanent slide marks on the rack.I am also dissapointed that the rack only sits on about 1/4 or the actual truck rail. Too bad Thule did not make the adapters deeper so you could have the option of moving the rack over or in to maybe move out over the curve of the bed. Although if that happened then the rack would only be sitting on about 1/8 or less of the truck rail.Overall the rack would be good if it actually fits your truck (don't trust Thule's fit guide and check other users first). The rack works fine in the highest two settings but so does my fixed height $250 rack. I have used it to put my 12 foot aluminum fishing boat on the truck and its seems pretty solid. I have not put my whitewater or touring kayaks on it and probably never will when my old rack works just fine for those with Malone Wings already mounted and it is the same height at the Thule rack anyway. I would have returned this if it would have not cost me a fortune in shipping. I am probably going to sell it to a friend with a Tundra. Overall I am very dissapointed in this very expensive rack.
