Standard, overall dimensions are 39" wide x 43-1/2" long x 6" tall. The roof rack storage basket length can be increased by 24" with an optional Basket Extension for added cargo space. It is treated with an E-coat process then finished with a durable black powder coating. It mounts to most factory roof racks or multi-sport rack systems such as Yakima and Thule. An optional 37" x 5-1/2" Wind Fairing is also available to help deflect wind around roof cargo and reduce noise during travel. Vehicle must be equipped with a roof rack with cross bars for U-brackets to connect to. Mounting requirements - Round Cross Bars: 1-3/4" in diameter, Square Cross Bars: 1-3/4" wide x 1-3/4" thick, Rectangle Cross Bars: 4-3/4" wide x 1-1/8" thick, with at least 15" spacing between the cross bars.

Bought to increase storage for camping. Works exactly as advertised, assembly took about ten minutes and another 20 to mount it. May end up getting extension for even more storage, but very satisfied with the product.

Got this 2 years ago for a trip to OBX, worked out great, loaded it with gear. A TIP: I used some wire ties to beef up the mounting. The box was broke open and the hardware missing when it came. I called customer service and they overnighted the hardware, never slowed me down, nice job by discountramps. Using it again next week, same trip.

This cargo basket worked out perfect for what we needed. I have used a cargo bag before and it was horrific but with the addition of the cargo basket it was perfect and made it much easier. The basket was easy to put together and to attach to the cargo bars. It was the best product for a reasonable price. It spent the summer on the roof and did not rust.

Bought this basket for a 2015 Xterra. Fits great, easy install, looks awesome. Length was perfect for centering on roof rails while keeping the factory equipped wet cargo basket accessible.

I have had this basket for two years now and had it on two vehicles and i love it. It has been used over those 2 years i have had fully loaded 48 quart coolers chairs gas cans and everything in it with no problem. (By the way it will hold more than 150 pounds) I would definitely recommend it to anyone. It has exceeded expectations. I love it!!!

very nice unit. Packaging was loose and box not put properly together . Good unit for the money but I thought shipping charges were excessive over UPS rates.

After looking all over for a decent priced rack for the top of my Suburban, I deceived to purchase this one because of my budget. It was half the cost of the next closest that would suit my needs. I purchased it with 2 additional 24" add on baskets making the total length almost 7 feet.. I was expecting a cheaper less durable version then what I received. The strength, quality, and over all appearance matches the $800 model a buddy bought. I am very happy with it so far as I have loaded almost 400lbs of camping gear up there and it worked better then expected, no issues at all. Very pleased with my purchase and would recommend to anyone looking to put a rack on top of their vehicle.
