Doing a quick search, I get from 100-220*. Looks like the side rails are more on the 220 end and the cross bars 100?
I'm no expert, but I hope that helps.

It's in the owners manual I believe. When I looked it up, I seem to remember 100 pounds, but I'm not sure.

I didn't see it in my manual, that's why I came here.
100 pounds isn't much. I guess the 7 point Whitetail will go on the hood.

Aha! Found it. In the Owners Manual, under Driver Controls of all things.
Page 51...the maximum recommended load is 220 lbs (100 kg) on the luggage rack structure(if equipped). The load must be placed directly on the dealer installed cross-bars (if equipped) and luggage rack. The vehicle’s roof panel is not designed to carry a load.
