Which Allows More Clearance for Opening Tailgate Thule T2 or RockyMounts SplitRail


trying to decide betwen Thule T2 pro and rocky mount split rail. Which will give more room to open tailgate on my silverado pickup?


Expert Reply:

The RockyMounts Split Rail part # RKY11404 has a larger distance between the hitch pin of the rack and the nearest wheel rail at 10-1/4 inches when compared to the Thule T2 part # TH9034XT which has this distance at 7 inches. If that dimension is the most important factor for you the RockyMounts will be the better rack. The SplitRail is also a bit lighter at 44 lbs compared to the Thule which is 52.

I did attach review videos for both rack for you to check out for further comparison.
