    The cross bars on the 2008 Sante Fe will only spread about 26 inches
    apart (front to back) although the side rails extend almost the entire
    length of the roof. It is not very stable with long items on the
    roof. With golf club cases on the roof the radio attenna is shielded
    and reception is poor. I am looking for a modification or aftermaket
    product that will allow them to be spread futher apart. Any ideas?

  3. On my Entourage, I lashed a couple of 2x4's to the side rails to get good
    separation front to back. If you were ever in the Boy Scouts you would have
    learned how do square lashings. It is not pretty, but it is solid and
    effective, and cheap!

    Cheers,
