Rei's "thule fit guide" doesn't even list this as fitting my truck, or anything fitting my truck, which makes me suspect of said fit guide. I mean, one would think that an SUV with a factory roof rack would be exactly what this is made for. Grr.

I don't see why it wouldn't fit...unless your roof rails are super far apart.

They're 4' center to center. Don't have anything to compare that to, but it doesn't seem that far...

Did you check the Thule USA site?
I just looked but didn't see anything marked as "Snowcat", so I didn't look further.
I'd contact them directly to check for fitting to your vehicle.

You need the thule universal rack. I have it on my truck and it's great. Fits a regular factory roof rack. Mine holds 4 boards...... Mounts to a cross bar.

I'm pretty sure the snowcat 5401 is the universal one for cars with factory rails.

aren't your racks adjustable anyway? I know my suburban I could slide the cross bars pretty close together.
I'm not positive but I don't see why this wouldn't work.
I thought most box sporting good stores carried these along with some of the specialty bicycle shops. You may be able to stop in and hit up their wisdom and they may even let you take it outside to set it on the truck

Alright, got it figured out. Went to Thule's site and used the fit guide there, using my desktop instead of a mobile browser. The universal flattops and the snowcats will both work. Thanks everybody!

Picked up a snowcat, pretty happy so far, I just wish it had risers, as my bindings make contact with my roof...

No discernible increase in road noise without boards in it though.

That sucks, I have yet to try it with my board upside down. Hopefully mine will fit. Guess it just depends on how high your factory rails are.
