Weight Limit for Racks

Anyone have any idea how much weight the roof racks can support on the patriot?

Thanks!

According to the owners manual:
Quote:
To avoid damage to the roof rack and vehicle, do not
exceed the rated load capacity of your cross rail system
or the roof rack system maximum load capacity of 150
lbs (68 kg). Always distribute heavy loads as evenly as
possible and secure the load appropriately.
