Default Roof basket your truck? click here, done!

So your looking to put a baket on your roof? well here is all the info you need to complete it.


you are going to have to order a set of cross bars that fit your truck. I went with Rhino areo blade corss bars. there are many others that will fit.

Then you will need a basket. I went with the Surco 50x50 it fits well and mounts almost perfectly with hte Rhino cross bars. There are a slew of other baskets availible, but not sure on fitment with corss bars.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1


The Rhino bars way exceeded my expectations, they are well build and sturdy. the directions are a wee bit confusing but by looking at pictures i was able to figure it out.



Install on the truck was not that bad, it would have been easier and i would have one less scratch in my roof.

Install of the basket was a little more difficult, The basket comes with bars to install with, throw them away, they make the basket sit another 2 inches off the truck and rattle like crazy, make sure you keep all the hardware though.

You may have to adjust the cross bars, me I liked my bar placement so adjusted the attachement holes on the basket. On the rear cross bar remove hte end caps and pull the trim out of the top rail, slide 3 mounts in the rail upside down, if you place small side up the screws dont reach and they sit angled when tightened. Screw the screws into mounts, do not tighten, center your basket, or place where you would like it. Using a sharpie mark the rubber on the front cross bar on the sides of the basket floor so you can trim it also mark the basket mounts in hte middle of the bar so you can drill holes.

Good looking setup. Are you planning to add off-road lights to the front of the basket?
