I need to get a set of crossbars for my 17’ SL. I found a used set from a 17’ QX80. Anyone know if they are the same/will fit?
Thanks

I have a very similar question. I own a 2019 Armada SV with standard roof rails and no crossbars. I see many crossbars for a QX80 and for some reason I don't understand they are much cheaper than similar crossbars for an Armada. Does anyone know if bars for a QX80 will fit a 2019 Armada. Is the width between rails the same and do the bolt holes match. Hopefully someone has already tried this and can give us a definitive answer. Many thanks.

If you plan on carrying a cargo basket or those cargo shells, avoid the OE crossbars. When I first installed a Kuat Vagabond XL on my QX80’s crossbars, it was just wobbling up/down on the highway because the OE crossbars were flexing. Upgraded to Rhino Rack aero bars and the OE bars have been collecting dust ever since.

Many thanks for the feedback. I am only looking to carry a surfboard so no heavy loads. I see several QX80 OE bars on that well known auction site and hoping someone can confirm this exact part number (G3805-1LA0B) will fit the 2019 Armada SV. Thanks again.

For anyone following this post. Based on the feedback above I purchased a set of non OE bars from Amazon "MOSTPLUS Roof Rack Cross Bar Rail Compatible for Infiniti QX80/QX56 with Raised Side Rails". I put them on my 2019 Armada SV and they are a perfect fit. Many thanks.
