:thumbsup: I have a 2005 SRX V8 with UltraView and standard V8 chrome roof rails. I just acquired GM accessory cross bars (GM 12498684). They fit fine; but the top of the cross bars are ~3 1/2 in above the rails and ~ 2 1/2 in above the roof line at the center and the roof rails only provide ~ 3' 8" between cross bars.
Three questions: 1) what is the weight limit for the UltraView roof load or where to find the answer ?; 2) what additional support is suggested to carry a 4x8 plywood (ie 2x2s on top of the cross bars ?); 3) with the cross bar top only 2 1/2 in above the roof and the 2005 OnStar antenna ~3 1/2 in, will a 4x8 sheet of plywood damage the OnStar antenna by bending it ~ 1 in ??
