  • Ski and Snowboard Rack for a 2014 Subaru Outback Wagon with Factory Crossbars
    I have a solution for you, but unfortunately the Thule SnowPack, part # TH7324 is not a confirmed fit for the factory bars on a 2014 Subaru Outback Wagon according to Thule. The speed link system may be able to reach around and give a fit, but we haven't had the ability to directly confirm this in house. Instead, I recommend the extremely similar Yakima FatCat EVO4, part # Y03095. This offers similar locking and adjustable height features as the SnowPack, and Yakima does confirm this...

  • Overall Width of the Yakima FatCat 4-Ski Carrier and Will It Fit Next to Cargo Box on 2007 Escalade
    I checked with Yakima and the FatCat ski carrier # Y03095 is 30-1/2 inches long. If the cargo box is 28 inches wide then together the ski carrier and box have an overall width of 58-1/2 inches. You would need at least that much free space on the roof rack crossbars on your 2007 Cadillac Escalade for both parts to fit at the same time.

  • Distance Between Mounting Location on Yakima Fatcat 4 and Fatcat 4 EVO
    The Yakima FatCat EVO 4 Ski and Snowboard Carrier - Locking - 4 Skis or 2 Boards - Black # Y03095 has mounting holes that are inches apart. I reached out to my tech contact at Yakima and he said the Old FatCat 4 mounting holes are 12 inches on center and the newer FatCat 4 EVO will be longer at about 16 inches. Once you account for the width of the Aero Crossbar SmarT-Slot Kit 2 for Yakima FatCat Ski and Snowboard Carriers # Y03098 it will be another 1/2 inch on each side for the T-slot...

  • Will Tall Bindings Hit the Roof Using the Yakima FatCat Ski Carrier on a 2008 Acura MDX
    The bindings will not be an issue when using the Yakima FatCat # Y03095. It has integrated SkiLift brackets. The brackets unlatch from the bottom of the rack and extend, creating extra space between the FatCat and the mount bracket on the hinged end of the carrier. This is a real advantage when you're carrying several snowboards or skis and one of them must be carried with the bindings facing the vehicle's roof.

  • Recommendation To Carry 2 Snowboards and 4 Pair Skis On Roof Rack
    My recommendation for you is the Yakima Big PowderHound Roof-Mounted, Locking Ski and Snowboard Carrier - 4 Skis/2 Boards, side by side as you mentioned. With your 64.5 inch crossbars, you will have enough room to mount two of them with a little room to spare. They each measure 30" long x 2-3/4" wide x 6-3/8" tall. The large, push button system makes loading and unloading your gear quick and easy even with gloves or mittens on. The change to 6 snowboards will be limited due to the size...

  • Recommended Roof Rack and Ski Carrier for 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee
    Your 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee should already be equipped with the rails along the edges of the roof that run from front to back. Rhino Rack offers a strong, aerodynamic crossbar set-up for your vehicle that's also reasonably priced. The rack would include the following parts: 49 Inch Vortex Aero Crossbar # RRVA126B-2 for black or # RRVA126S-2 for silver SX Series Legs, part # RRSX100 With the roof rack in place, you can then install a ski carrier.

  • Recommended Rooftop Ski Carrier For 2015 Lexus RX 350 With Factory Roof Rack
    The ski carrier I recommend for your RX 350 is the Yakima FatCat EVO 4 Locking Rooftop Ski and Snowboard Carrier, part # Y03095. This carrier can handle snowboards with tall bindings to fat skis. The carrying capacity is 4 pairs of skis or 2 snowboards and weighs just 10 lbs. This carrier also has locks that secure the gear in the carrier and the carrier to the crossbars on your RX 350.

  • Recommended Ski/Snowboard Carrier for a 2018 Subaru Outback Wagon with Integrated Crossbars
    I recommend going with a Yakima ski/snowboard rack for your 2018 Subaru Outback Wagon because they feature the FatCat EVO which has a sleek modern design and the FreshTrack if you are looking for more of a retro style. These will mount to the OEM crossbars that you have as the side rails would be where you would attach a roof rack and not an actual carrier. Both of these ski/snowboard carrier options come equipped with locks, oversized push buttons so you can operate them with your gloves...

  • Tool-Free Ski Carrier for a 2017 Subaru Forester with Aero Crossbars
    We have some excellent roof ski carriers that I think you will like. If you want to stick with Yakima I recommend the FatCat, # Y03095. It is a locking carrier and it does not require tools to mount. It uses hand knobs to secure to the crossbars. For another option I recommend the Thule SnowPack, # TH7325. This carrier is unique in that the top portion slides out making loading and unloading the skis easier. It is a tool-free installation. There is a knob on the feet that you will tighten...

  • Low Profile Rooftop Ski and Snowboard Carrier
    The Yakima FatCat Evo # Y03095 will give you about 1-7/8" lower clearance compared to the Rhino-Rack Ski and Snowboard Carrier # RR572. From the top of your crossbar the FatCat has a height of 4-5/8" and the Rhino-Rack at 6-1/2". Both of the carriers make excellent ski and snowboard carriers and double as fishing rod holders in the warmer months but if you are looking for a lower profile carrier the Yakima FatCat Evo is the best choice. If the clearance difference isn't quite what you...

    To use with the Yakima FatCat EVO Ski and Snowboard Carrier like part # Y03095, the Yakima LoadWarrior Roof Basket # Y07070 is definitely the better option. The crossbars on this basket, as you mentioned, feature a straight design and will work perfectly with this and many other roof rack accessories. The Rola Roof Cargo Basket # 59504 that you referenced, because of those curved bars, won't work well with the Yakima FatCat EVO or any other traditional crossbar mounted accessory. This...

I went to the warehouse and tested the Yakima bolt in the T-slots of a Thule Xsporter bar and it fit perfectly. You can use the Yakima SmarT-kit 2 in any Thule Xsporter bar T-slot. The FatCat EVO part # Y03095 fits crossbars up to 3-7/16 inches wide by 1-1/2 inches tall. The Crossbars of the Thule Xsporter ladder rack are 3-1/3" inches wide by...

  • Rhino-Rack vs Yakima FatCat4 Snowboard/Ski Rack Comparison
    Yakima is a top of the line brand that offers great racks at a price that reflects the quality. The Rhino Rack brand on the other hand comes in a much lower price with only a marginal difference in quality to be totally honest. In my opinion the Rhino Rack carriers and racks are the best value in most cases and what I normally recommend. That being said the Ski Rack part # RR574 is a great value, BUT it does require a tool to tighten the clamps to your crossbars and the Yakima part...

The 42 inch tracks will still allow for plenty of adjustability in terms of sliding the bars along the roof of your Wrangler but you won't need to modify them for a proper fit. This system includes everything needed for a complete roof rack: 2 Aero-Style CoreBar crossbars (60 inches long), 4 SkyLine Towers, and the mentioned tracks that will...

These bars are easy and quick to install and include channel mounts, important to keeping a low profile on the vehicle. One of the best features of this rack is that the top channel's rubber inset actually...
