Snowboard Rack
 
Ive been looking into different options and i really like the Thule Snowcat. Does anyone know anything about these, will it fit? are they worth it. Also, if they fit can you use a fairing with them? I tried figuring all of this on on their website but had no luck.

Also, what are most of you using? Thule, Yakima, etc? What size bars/fairings? Ive seen a lot of pictures of different setups but if anyone feels like it please post some pics.

I guess I should also mention that I want to be able to carry at least 4 boards.

Thanks.

That is also the one I have been looking at. After reading some reviews on Amazon, I don't think the fairings will work with it. It does get high reviews for ease of use and convenience. I like how you don't have to get the cross rails and it will fit multiple vehicles. It also comes with the 4 locks that are all keyed the same. Yes it will work with the WK, I saw one on the red site that had it installed.

No problem man!


The problem that most people find with the single rack is that they are hard to load and unload because you have to climb up to unload the inside boards. The snowcat rids you of that trouble by storing 2 boards on each side.

I use the standard jeep mopar snowboardrack , You can easily put 4 snowboards in their bag on it( two pairs on eachother side by side), and you can drive 150km/h without losing them hehe...

I've been using Thule for years and works great. Especially like how this one slides out so I don't have to climb anything to reach them. Also have Warn light's on top so put spacers on front rack and clears just the amount needed.

Re: Snowboard Rack
 
finally got my snowcat. i tested it out and it will fit 4 boards no problem (some people were concerned about that). the only thing that touched my roof was the top strap of my bindings because it hangs down, but i will find a way to secure it. i guess it all depends on your bindings though, other highbacks might not fold down as well as mine, i have burton cartel's fyi.

here are some pics,
