Default Re: Roof baskets and roof bars

Step 1: Go to junkyard and get an explorer roof rack...$15-25.
Step 2: Attach explorer roof rack to topper or top of cab.
Step 3: Find a roof cargo basket that you like...buy it, attach it to your explorer roof rack cross bars.
A: options for purchasing online..
http://www.rackattack.com/cargo-baskets.asp

My favorite
http://www.discountramps.com/car-top...roof-racks.htm

Step 4: buy lights for your basket and find a way to mount them.
Step 5: buy a cargo net, some ratchet straps, and bungee cords for securing loads in the basket.
Step 6: enjoy your basket and show it off.

I'm running trail blazer racks with a Cabelas basket. Racks aren't the greatest but it works
