Why is the DepHep only compatible up to 2011? Did they change anything in 2012? It's certainly has the most appealing price. Plus it's nice to support the little guy.

Info on his site hasn't been updated since then probably. I will update the thread. The 2012 rack is the exact same so it is compatible.

Calmini has released a full replacement roof rack for the 2nd gen as well. It's not on the website but there is a thread on the "other forum" under the site sponsors.

I installed my Dephep rack today (finally) and I am pretty happy with it. I need to adjust the mounting brackets because they are lined up a little funny. I don't think it weighs a whole lot (especially since you remove the cross bars) and plan on getting the Jerry brackets at some point before I start my cross country trip. I'll post picture soon so you can see it well.

ORS Racks Direct = awesome merchant btw.. sells the Load Warrior now at 242.00 very good deal.....I don't know where you saw it for over 300.00 but ORS is one very reputable store..
That last rack (that fits within the factory rack) is a beauty..but a little expensive for me....seeing I don't need one...but if I did, that is really sweet.

Sorry is this has been asked before, or is widely known, but how do each of these options affect the load carrying capacity? I assume that is a function of components as opposed to mounting points? If I go with DepHep (which is where I was headed), am I limited to the current load bearing limitation that Nissan publishes? Do other options increase this?

That's a good question.. I'll give my opinion..not sure if I'm correct mind you....The factory rack says about 125 pounds for max load.. At least on my 2002 it was that much...in any case.. I think they are basing it on the load across the cross bars..Seeing that most of these racks sit not only on the cross bars..but also run along the stronger points of the roof racks parallel bars..I think those are made to take quite a load.. so like the load warrior..since its edges sit on the frame of the factory roof rack (even though the factory rack is a hollow tin foil tube..).. I think it can take quite a load up there distributed properly of course...That's my guess...

I'm pretty sure people have put close to 500lbs on their dephep a without an issue. Maybe more. Just gotta watch the turns, the x is top heavy as it is. I've put a bit on mine, but nothing close to 500lbs...
