Can a any type of roof rack carrying system be installed on a 2020 Explorer with a panoramic sunroof? I believe the dealership said the side support structure on the roof would collapse if installed. Just want to verify.

Thanks.

I have a 2021 with the moon roof and in the owner's manual it said that the roof load was reduced by 1/2. Normal roof load is 150, with the glass roof it's 75 pounds. I bought the cross rails from the Ford Dealer and when I installed them I found that the side rails are not parallel their full length. The furtherst forward that I could install a cross rail was about even with the middle joint in the glass roof. The rear cross bar is about even with the back of the roof glass. 30" between the front and rear cross rails. My previous Explorer (2013) did not have a moon roof and I know that I had 300 pound of drywall on it at least once. I think these numbers are a CYA by Ford, but if you break the glass, that would suck.
