    Converting Thule roof rails to hitch mount?

    Gents-- Quick question.

    My buddy just got a great deal on three Thule Sidearm 594XT rails that bolt to the OEM rack on his 4 Runner.

    Question: Is there any way to convert them to hitch mounts? i.e. does Anyone make a hitch mount that he can bolt the rails to, or is he hosed?

    There were various brands that made them (hitch racks without trays) that you could mount your own trays onto. But from what I gathered, they aren't made anymore.
    I have 2 Yakima Frontloaders I mounted to a hitch rack. My original intention was to use 594XT to make it into a Thule T2 clone.

    Quite a few guys here has made hitch racks to accept roof trays.
