Hello newbie here, I recently got a 2002 Frontier XE, the roof rack does not seem like the typical tubular OEM type that most come with. I am trying to figure out if this is OEM, or some mod that someone has done. I have searched on internet and have not found much of anything with a rack similar to this.
the second part of my question, if this is an OEM nissan rack, can it be easily swapped with the typical tubular OEM type rack?
I don't care for the load bars with this rack, and am trying to decide if I want to get the thule rack footers 450XT to work with the Thule load bars, or if it is easily possible to switch this roof rack with the typical nissan OEM tubular rack, so that I can mount my thule load bars. By easily possible, I mean I am not sure if the holes drilled in the roof match up with the same hardware/brackets with the tubular OEM rack.
thanks in advance ! mark
