  • Will SportRack Roof Rack # SR1099 be a Tight Fit on a 2013 Toyota Highlander with Side Rails

The only reason it appears on the SportRack roof rack # SR1099 is because the SportRack options that fit naked roofs are semi-custom or multi-fit racks and have no vehicle-specific parts. So go forward with confidence!
