How much weight can I put on my Ford's roof rack?
Your vehicle's roof rack load limit can be found in your Owner's Manual in the Load Carrying section.
When loading your roof rack, we recommend you evenly distribute the load, as well as maintain a low center of gravity. Loaded vehicles, with higher centers of gravity, may handle differently than unloaded vehicles. Take extra precautions, such as lowering your speed and increasing stopping distance, when driving a heavily loaded vehicle.
For correct roof rack system function, you must place loads directly on crossbars affixed to the roof rack side rails. When using the roof rack system, we recommend you use crossbars designed specifically for your vehicle.
Note: Never place loads directly on the roof panel. The roof panel is not designed to directly carry a load.
