Fireon, did you get the 4019kit from REI? I was following your & Moosehead's threads and ready to order. Couldn't locate 4019kit on REI and had a Online Chat with their Thule Agent. They had the new number, not the old 4019kit and wasn't sure if new number worked in place of 4019kit. I'm thinking you got the new kit and all worked great.
As a bonus, Discovered REI has a 20% off on all Thule sale in May, instead of just 1 item as current sale... if that helps future purchases for all, referenced in chat below.
REI Agent OnLine Chat:
Dave L: We don't carry the older numbers anymore. It is our #772689. We would have to special order it from Thule for you.
Dave L: We don't have them in our stores either, sorry.

Dave L: These are the new versions. 4019 isn't part of this system.
Dave L: You could call Thule tomorrow at 800-238-2388 to see what they say.
Dave L: Thule changed their fit kits last year and their are a number of gaps.
Doug J: Ok, I was attempting to use your 20% discount on the rack asmb.
Dave L: The 20% is for only one full priced item.
Dave L: So you'd get the Podium at the discount.
Doug J: Hmmm... OK, well thank you for all your time & attention.
Dave L: We will have all of Thule at 20% off in our Aniversary sale, May 20 - 30.
