    The car has a 165# roof weight limit. Depending on the width of the cases, you might fit two on the factory roof crossbars or Thule crossbars. Thule crossbars are 30" wide. Can the Pelican cases be u-bolted through the bottom to the crossbars? If the weight and size work, installation can be easy.

    I don't know if they can be u-bolted has anyone on these forums every used them? Ideally would be awesome if they detached but that option is only for truck beds I believe. Been quite challenging to find any useful on this topic since the product is so new.
