Great rack for the money and very solild and easy to assemble, but i would encourage two improvements. The paint chips of very easily and there were a few spots where the paint was chipped off in shipping (powder coat may be an improvement). Also the U-brackets for attaching the rack are not great quality and i had one "spin on" nut that is cross threaded and won't screw on the U-bolt / bracket.
We continue to purchase and use these roof cargo baskets on our jeeps and love them!
I just put my roof rack on my R32 today and it looks phenomenal! The picture does not do it justice. Great quality for a great price.
only used once so far but so far, so good. easy to put together and quickly delivered
Last year we started taking a couple of month long road trips in our Ford Explorer. We would pack the insides full the best we could and would try to secure a few things on the roof between the rails without a cargo basket.
This year we decided to purchase a cargo basket so that we could put a lot of our things up on top and out of the way. We purchased the 62.5" cargo basket which fit and attached great on the cargo rails that came with the Explorer.
Assembly was pretty easy and took a little over 30 minutes. We assembled it on the living room floor. The directions provide little help. I recommend to assemble not tightening the bolts till you have all the pieces together, then do a final tightening when it is all together. I used a box wrench and a socket wrench which made it very easy.
As stated on other reviews it did cone with a few scratches and I caused some as well. A $4.00 can of gloss black spray enamel did the trick. I am sure I will have scratches after each trip and I plan to touch it up before putting away.
The product is sturdy and will meet all of my needs and with proper care and storage I feel it will meet our needs for years to come. Good buy for the price.
Got this rack as a gift. I wanted an aluminum rack. I like the basket but I am not excited about clamping it to my roof rack. The biggest complaint is that it is advertised as "powder coated" it is not. It is painted, poorly. Lots of chips. Instructions are terrible. Just a picture which lacks detail. One of the bolts was messed up so I had to re-thread it. The wire basket does not get attached so it makes a bunch of noise. I used some hose clamps to bind the two sides. That will help, I hope. It's also heavy. So, it was a gift, it is too expensive to ship it back and I will probably only use it once in a while so I'll keep it but I would not buy it or recommend this particular rack.
Like I said I've bought one of these Heavy duty cargo carrier racks for my last Cherokee and loved the price and quality. So, that being said I got another Jeep so I had to have a new rack. Awesome ship times, great customer service. Superior product for the price. It can take a lot of cargo. Super easy to install. I will continue to buy from this company. Thanks so much.
I've used dozens of these baskets and have never had a problem with any of them. They're easy to work with and look great.
Fast delivery. Good quality product, but had a few small marks from shipping. The marks were easily fixed with a can of black paint. It was easy to put together (a one person job). I am very happy with the product and company.
This was the perfect size i was looking for. Its really easy to install. Sturdy and dependable. I would definately recommend this to anyone looking for a larger roof rack. Im very happy with it.
This review does NOT in any way pertain to Discount Ramps; its staff is quite capable and a pleasure with whom to deal.
The rack arrived with just shreds of the cardboard box it was shipped in, and damaged pieces had to be replaced. While no doubt UPS could have handled it with more care, the shipping carton for this 40-pound rack needs to be heavier.
Despite so many reviews that assembly is easy, I found that the assembly instructions are useless. They fail to indicate that there's a top and bottom to the metal tubes. When it became evident that there IS a top and a bottom, I had to disassemble what I'd accomplished and begin again. Nor do the instructions indicate which end of the nuts are screwed on first. (There IS a difference.)
Since no top or bottom of the tubing was indicated, I originally tried to assemble the rack with the push buttons that hold the tubing together facing down, where they are far less likely to be accidentally engaged. But, to assemble the rack correctly, the push buttons must face up, exposing them every time the rack is loaded, creating a completely unnecessary danger.
Like racks in so many other reviews, mine came with many chips in the paint. The wind guard was bent.
Frankly, I'm not eager to put this on my car roof, especially given that the rack is held together with just 4 little push buttons, all facing up.
It's a great basket. Assembled in no time & set up was relatively easy. I did have to drill new holes for two of the wind bars & the basket came scratched in several spots. I did sand & spray paint with bedliner to toughen it up. I put well over 150 lbs of gear on it recently & it worked great. I listed the negative but would definitely purchase it again.
I was having a hard time finding a good, steel roof rack large enough to fit my 1980 International Scout. This rack fit perfectly and was very easy to assemble and install.
Fit my 2008 Durango perfectly without the need for crossbars. Was able load everything I needed for a family of five to go camping and then some. No sounds and very little wind drag. Good value for the size and quality.
Impressed how easy it was to attach to the vehicle. We took a 3000 mile trip with cargo and a loaded cooler on the rack and never had a problem. Highly recommend.
Rack was extremely easy to assemble although the wind fairing was missing a quick call and they shipped within 3 business days. Easy to install on my 2016 Kia Sorento and looks really Nice! Many compliments from friends and family on how sporty it makes my car look. The dimensions are perfect in length and width. A few paint chips but thats to be expected.
Love the new roof rack basket especially how it has mesh on bottom so I can hold small things as well.easy to assemble to me 2 min during work time and affordable love it
Was very impressed with how quick it arrived. The assembly was super easy. Looks great on top of my 2002 Chevy trailblazer. Only reason I'm not giving 5 stars is cause of the paint chips missing in a couple spots. I would recommend this rack to anyone looking to get a roof rack. Would definitely buy rack again.
This roof rack is very easy to assemble and looks awesome on my sons jeep. The only negative is that it came delivered with a few chips in the paint. I would buy this product again.
Put the cargo rack together in under 30 minutes and had it on top of my truck in another 20 minutes. Very easy to to install, and for the price, very well made. I would highly recommend this rack to anyone who is looking for an affordable rack that can be taken on and off with ease.
I continue to purchase these for trucks that I work on, and they look great. Easy to install as well.
Overall I think this is a great roof rack. Looks good and is big enough to hold all our stuff for a big road/camping trip coming up! So thankful I didn't spend the money on a more expensive name brand roof rack. This will work just as well! Thank you!
Perfect rack,fast shipping,good deal.
Received and installed another roof cargo basket this weekend. Love the quality and the way they make my jeeps look!
Looks great on my trooper.Would look better with rage stickerwas not in box and i like stikers.
I've purchased several of these for jeeps that I've worked on. They're great quality, go on easily, and look awesome. I'll definitely purchase more of them in the future.
Great roof rack. Much stronger than I imagined. I have a 33" spare tire and high lift jack on it and it has held up great on and off road. The finish is a little cheap. I will probably re paint it.
I purchased this rack off Ebay to haul camping gear on my 98 Dodge Durango... Item arrived quickly and was well packaged...The quality and construction is very good and holds me (200lbs) walking on the mesh with only minor give/warping, It also looks very good as well...The only problem i had was the paint was flaked off in places and scratches off very easily hence the four star rating..manufacturer should consider powder coating instead of painting... I had planned on rubber coating it anyway so not a big issue with me but something to consider if you decide on purchasing for long term use....For a $110 62" long roof rack it's hard to get or expect much better...
We are new to the SUV owner club, with the birth of our 4th baby. We MISSED our trunk space and traveling was almost impossible without the trunk to pack our stuff in. When we saw these racks we jumped at the idea but hesitated because we didn't want to spend a bunch on money on something that wouldn't work. We are headed on several long trips this summer and NEEDED something!! After our first trip this last weekend we are SO impressed and LOVE our new luggage rack! It is large enough to put coolers, & suitcases! We were able to pack everything for the weekend on the roof and had nothing packed around us! It was comfortable and we didn't feel squished into the car around all our stuff!! I am amazed at how well it handled! When we first put it up it was extremely noisy, & I was worried... but as soon as we had it packed it was quiet! It is heavy duty and easy to take on and off for easy storage. The best part is that we have the room to pack was we want & if it is bad weather, as usual in Idaho, we can wrap our stuff in tarps. We LOVE it!
Shipping was very quick. When the rack arrived the box was pretty beat up. Once open, the rack was in good shape save for some scratches on the rails. Assembly was quick and easy. A nice feature is that you can easily break the rack down into two halves for storage. The rack is sturdy and easy to install. A great product for the price.
just received this product in the mail and took maybe 30 minutes to put together. fits perfect.
Product seemed a bit flimsy as it came out of the box but as I followed the simple instructions a very nice sturdy rack appeared. The product does get beat up a bit in shipping. More than I expected for the price an well worth a little spray paint to repair shipping damage. Would recommend to a friend!
Ordered rack February 21, 2015, received rack February 27, 2015. Opened package and checked contents, contents matched packing list, took four minutes. Assembly took nine minutes. Attach assembled rack to vehicle took eight minutes. Rack will supplement my load carrying capacity for hunting/fishing/camping trips. My vehicle is a 1995 Ford Explorer XLT 4WD.
Exactly what i expected also good deal to go with it cant be happier
awesome rack berry strong materiel over all good
your product is great but your packaging is not so good, recived my rack with all the tie straps that hold the foam on the corners broke off, rack was scrached and the end of one pipe was dented. also I did not recive my decal for the rack that is shown on line. fix the rack my self did not want to ship back and wait for another. sure would like that decal.
Very easy to assemble. Well made. Low cost. Quick shipping. What's not to like.
Just got the rack in the mail today and put it together. Heavy duty like it says. Look forward to many a road trip with this rack hauling my gear in the future.
The price is right, and I like the heavy gauge mesh bottom to the carrier. Some assembly is required, but that is a good thing, since it made it easier for me to custom fit the unit to a Thule roof rack. I would have dinged it a start, since it came with a few minor dings in the paint, and wind screen, but customer service was great. The offered to send another complete unit--which I didn't want--and then gave me an immediate discount (to pay for touch up paint). I liked the fact the the wind screen had no decal. This is a very good value.
It says heavy duty but it build kind of thin. I didnt even get the rage decals on the thing. Other than that its a good basket for the price. I would buy another next time because ime cheap.
