Does anyone know the width of the NAS Thule roof rack cross bars?

Does anyone know the width of the NAS Thule roof rack cross bars? Im trying to get some cross bar pads and Im not near the roof rack to measure... Im trying to get total coverage or close for the area in between where the diagonal uprights meet the cross bar. im thinking of going with 48" pads. Any help/thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks

Rocky - thank you.
Im trying to measure in between where the diagonal uprights meet the cross bar.
I jumped on the site and I was unclear if the site has the specs for the old style of NAS cross bars that fit to the SD cage (which i have) vs. the kind that fit to the rain gutters for SW only. Maybe the info is all there and i couldn't find it
I just want to see if 48" pads would be a good fit
Thanks

Just wanted to circle back on this. I got a chance to measure mine and the NAS D90 Thule cross bars (that fit to the SD cage) are 54" wide. A 48" rack pad fits perfect for full coverage.

On our 110 we have the 64" Thule bars for mounting our Maggiolina Tent. I think they stick out maybe 2" on either side of the tent and overhang the truck's cage by the same amount.

Just wanted to close the loop with a pic.
Again, a 48" rack pad is a perfect match for the 54" NAS D90 Thule cross bars (that fit to the SD cage)

Rufus,

I saw the picture you posted of you Thule Rack with full length pad. What are you using to connect the bars to the cage?

FYI. I am a new D90 ST owner (in Mass). This is my first post (so if I missed something, sorry!)...

I am looking for a solution to carry surf boards on my ST, this looks perfect.

Thank you!
Michael
