5 Stars Huge Basket With The Extension

Rick from VA wrote (February 17, 2018):

I also own a Yakima basket for another vehicle, and the quality and appearance is comparable, however, for a basket this large, I would have liked to have seen it more heavy duty. That being said, you can't beat it for the money. It says in the instructions it is not for permanent mounting, as a disclaimer of sorts. I'm putting it on top of a truck shell for a cross country trip, and it's exactly what I wanted. it is the largest basket I could find, with the extension.

5 Stars Great basket for the price!

This is a great lower profile basket for any vehicle with compatible cross bars. its very easy to install and has plenty of points on it for strapping down cargo. I'll be buying the extension for it soon as well!

5 Stars Amazing rack for An outdoor enthusiast!

Justin from FL wrote (September 24, 2016):

I ordered this rack because I needed more gear space on my crosstrek. This rack fits the roof line perfectly and looks as though it should be standard equipment. Absolutely no wind noise when coupled with the optional fairing, unlike my old rack on my old jeep. Very easy to assemble, feels very sturdy for its light weight. This rack is big enough to haul two kayaks on cradles, and still have plenty of space for other gear in between them. Perfect for wet gear after a day of whitewater paddling, or for just extra interior space when traveling with a pet or a full car. I highly recommended this rack to anyone who is searching for a quality rack at a reasonable price. Fast shipping and reliable tracking is a huge plus too! 10 out of 10!!!

5 Stars A very nice rack indeed!

Jason from AZ wrote (August 11, 2016):

Pleasantly surprised by how big it is in real life, even without the extension. Love the sleek low-profile look. Very sturdy structure. I also purchased the wind fairing and installed it from the get-go; as such i am not sure if it created noise. But I can say that with the fairing I have noticed zero added noise out on the open road. My only gripe about this rack is that the mounting nuts that it comes with can easily be taken off by hand. I'd like to see it come with a more theft proof mounting option; even some simple lock nuts would be a better option. Also, the mounting bolts stick up too high and I will need to trim them down so as not to poke holes, scratch, tear or otherwise damage my precious rooftop cargo. The main reason I got into this accessory is to carrying luggage, camping gear, picnic paraphernalia, etc. With the assistance of a bungie chord net this roof rack does the trick nicely and fashionably! Would recommend it to a friend for sure.

2 Stars Rusted

AP from GA wrote (March 23, 2016):

I received this rack for Christmas from my grandfather. When it was brand new I loved it. It looked great on top of my Jeep Cherokee and I could toss just about anything in it that I didn't want in my interior. After only a few months though the thing started to rust. Upon further inspection I could see that the welds joining pieces of tubing together did not go all of the way around each tube allowing water to enter the inside of the rack tubes. The rack is literally rusting from the inside out and leaving rust orange streaks all over my white Jeep.

5 Stars Great value.

This basket is the perfect size for my 2001 Subaru Forester with Yakima cross bars. It was easy to assemble & mount and feels very sturdy. I did not notice any road noise while on the freeway, but am also using the wind fairing.

5 Stars Low Profile Roof Rack

JonathanS from IL wrote (March 02, 2016):

I love this roof rack! It works perfectly on top of my 2011 Ford Edge as well as my 2000 Jeep Wrangler. In some cases I need a little more length so I purchased the extension for it as well. Now I am covered for all of my needs. I recommend purchasing the wind faring as you may hear some noise at highway speeds. I am very pleased with the quality and construction of this rack!

5 Stars Best buy

Rudolf Steenkamp from KS wrote (August 07, 2015):

Easy to assemble even when we add the extension piece that we bought extra. We were certainly excited when it arrived in time for our holiday. Looks good on our vehicle!

5 Stars For my 2008 4 Runner with Sunroof

Justin from TX wrote (July 30, 2015):

This basket arrived quickly. It was a bit smaller than I thought it would be, but that is not to indicate it is small. Definitely, a solid rack. I stood on it in many different spots with both feet on and off the vehicle and at 170 lbs It didn't bend, make weird noises, or come loose in any way. I put the faring on and the wind noise disappeared, but the noise without it was not as loud as other reviews had prepared me for. I'm contemplating the the extender so my back racks fit more comfortably, but that's just me having fun with it, they fit fine as it is. Highly recommend it. I thought my stock crossbars were strong, but this rack drastically increased the stability of all the cargo I have put on it so far.

5 Stars Very nice on 2015 outback

Big Steve from AL wrote (July 26, 2015):

Easy install. Looks great. Well made. Should make carrying boats easier. Noisy at 35mph and above. I ordered the spoiler. Hoping that will help.

5 Stars Better than expected

Chris from KS wrote (July 03, 2015):

Shipping package was tight, no dings. Decent matte black powder coat. Mounted in about 45 minutes, would have been more like 30 minutes if I didn't have to move my rear cross beam on 03' Honda Pilot. (no tools required) Mount brackets were perfect match for my Pilot cross beams and looked like they would accomodate many other designs and shapes. I did not purchase the wind deflector and should have. It is loud without it and plan to get the wind deflector ASAP. this could hold a spare tire and two or thre suit cases if netting used.

5 Stars Good fit

Chauk from GA wrote (April 30, 2015):

I have a 2005 Kawasaki Mule 4x4. Found a after market flat top cover that was designed to fit and needed something to carry items such as kayaks and paddles boards to and from the beach and river. Started looking around and came across this site and noticed this carrier. Ordered it that day and shipping was fast. Wasn't able to use mounting hardware that came with the carrier, but knew this and it wasn't a problem. A few changes to attach and works great! Good price also.

5 Stars Great!

Brittany from MS wrote (February 16, 2015):

I bought this cargo rack recently for my husband, we have a Tahoe. We are using this along with the extension and wind fairing; looks great and works really well. We received our order much quicker than the expected delivery date so that was even better! This is a decent sized cargo rack and fits nicely on a larger SUV, especially if you add the extension to it. I would highly recommend both the product and Discount Ramps!

5 Stars Awesome!

Adam from SC wrote (October 25, 2014):

Just purchased this rack for the large capacity and it is great! Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for extra cargo space.
