Can the OEM cross bar slide to wherever position in the roof rack or is it at a fixed location on the rack?

I ask this because i want to put a basket on top for our coming road trip. I like the neat look of the oem cross bar, but if it is just fixed, i don't mind getting aftermarket. Thanks

Are you sure about them sliding? It's been a while since I put mine on, but there is a recommended place to mount them:

Not sure how much room there is for sliding them around. The directions mention that one bar is shorter than the other, so I'm guessing the rails aren't parallel so you may not be able to slide them back and forth all that much?

Mine came with the van and both crossbars slide. I used mine this weekend with a Sears cargo carrier on top. It wouldn't open wide enough to fit the carrier completely in between the cross bars but close enough. The tough part is finding a place to attach the straps to. I attached to the sliding door tracks for the front straps and then closed the doors.
