some racks mount directly to the rails and others mount to the crossbars. it really depends on the rack unless you want to custom fab something. if it mounts to the crossbars a lot of people go for the aftermarket yakima or thule ones because they are a lot stronger. i have my yakima loadwarrior mounted to the stock crossbars and havent had a problem. i dont put that much weight up there though...

ya its a home made job, any suggestions, it seems a j bolt or something similar might work; but it could also tear it up. I have it on the cross rails, but I really want it off of them I have put a lot of weight up there(prob more than I should)
