Thule 422XT Xsporter Aluminum Truck Rack Reviews
Jeff rated this item 5 out of 5 on 7/8/2012:
Picked up this rack on recommendation of a friend. Primary use if for hauling my rather old and heavy canoe. Rack holds up well, very solid. Easy to assemble and hold the canoe rock solid. Great product and was unable to find this item cheaper anywhere else. Would recommend Rack Attack and this product without hesitation.

Bought this for 16' Canoe- The canoe would have rested on the cab of the truck if we hadnt been able to adjust the rear rail to a lower position than the front rail. Adjustable over fixed rail system is the way to go. Easy to install and WORTH the price!

The rack went on easily on my pickup with Rhino spray in liner, just the normal put on an adjust one would expect. Only one tool need, 17mm wrench. One person could put this on with no problems, a second person just helps handing the parts.
Thule 422XT Xsporter Aluminum Truck Rack Questions

Vehicle: 2005 GMC Sierra 2500HD Crew cab
Will this rack carry an aluminum boat? Is there an option for securing a longer load above the cab as well? Thank you.
The 422 Xsporter has a weight limit of 450lbs so if your boat is lighter than that the 422 can carry it. As far as the cab is concerned, you would just have to put a single crossbar on top to carry a longer load. The single crossbar however will have a weight limit of about 160lbs.

I am having trouble sliding the rails up and down with ease what am I missing
I've run into the same thing before when installing this, luckily it's an easy fix. Your best bet is to loosen up the bases (the 4 posts that clamp around the bedrail) and then slide the bars up and down, you may need to lubricate the bars to ease this. After sliding them up and down, re-tighthen the bases.
