Hey! After reading non-stop (seriously, don't tell my boss) for a few days now, this is my first post!

I'm a pretty big guy (350 lb) and I'm waiting, impatiently, for my Nox which I ordered last week. I'm wondering about washing the top of car and more importantly about loading the roof rack. Would I stand on the rear 'step' bumper? On the door sills? Am I destined to carry a ladder with me or go on a hunger strike until the car arrives?
I've searched 'everywhere' (i.e., I googled every combination I could think of) and I can't seem to find any information on the rear bumper or its specs.

You might want to use a small step stool(one rated for 350 lbs or more). Rear bumper is not suitable for stepping on and the hatch would be in your way since it swings up.

if your nimble, you could just the side sills (open up the side doors, and reach up)....as was said, the rear isnt made to support much weight at all....

I've used one similar to that, and I thought that it was a bit unstable. I would suggest to see if you can buy locally to test it out, if possible. There also wasn't a lot of area on the platform - barely enough for one shoe - but mine are size 12.

Just a warning...

I didn't order the towing package as part of my i4 2LT order, mostly because we (the salesman and I) couldn't find a way to add it in the computer but also because I didn't care enough about it to ask someone else to help. I'm not sure I'll regret it, time will tell.

I got this for my TrailBlazer

I still have the step but not the TrailBlazer.
Thanks for the link. Those look sturdy, but I think i'd use them in addition to the tire step and not instead. It would be pretty difficult to mess with tying a cargo bag only from the rear.

That looks sharp. I wonder if, for a Nox, one would have to be made specifically for it? ::)
The one I linked to is universal, you just need a 1 1/4 receiver hitch.
I see no reason it would not work on a Nox.
