Vehicle: 2011 honda pilot
I was wondering how tall the rack is or how tall it would be on my vehicle because my garage clearance is pretty low.

Dear B,

They are about 7" Taller than your siderails.


Terry asked on 12/28/2011:

What vehicle will this rack fit on

Hi Terry,

The SnowCat isn't specific to a particular vehicle, it has the ability to clamp onto most factory roof rack side rails.
These are the type of rails that are raised up off the roof of the vehicle and run from front to back.

DOUG asked on 12/12/2011:

How tall is the rack. I have a old house with a low garage door, I am trying to figure out how tall it sits from the roof rack racks


I just measured the Snowcat and it appears to be 6.5" tall from where it would sit on the siderails. So if you have 6.5" of clearance from the top of your siderail to the top of your garage, then you should have enough space.
