Replaced the OEM crossbars with INNO IN-TR base stays and crossbars. The INNO system was the only one that I could confirm would work with the Baja rails with no modifications. The INNOs don't get the best reviews, but they have worked just fine for my purposes.
I needed to move the OEM bars to fit my rowing shell carrier. I did finally get the crossbars loose, but at the cost of destroying the corroded retaining screws. Because the crossbars weren't a great fit for either the carrier, or the kayak saddles I wanted, I replaced them rather than try to repair them.

Some side by side images before I removed the OEMs.

I know you’ve seen it a million times but the 250.00 Baja got some new shoes last night. They should have just come stock with crosstrek wheels lol
