Default Roof Rack Madness.......:confused:

I posted this on RPS as well, for all of you forum freaks, not to say any names......(STL, Smakes, Bloo, and quite a few more).So....I've been looking all over the internet for countless hours tonight, and I have yet to find a roof rack for my 1999 XLT. Im looking for the basket type with available upgrades such as the light bar and tire mount.
Like this....


I'm not sure if I actually DO need a PERFECT match or just get some measurements of my truck, because otherwise, I don't think they sell em' for my year. I'm done looking for tonight, because of the excessive frustration.:eyepoke:
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

Thule makes a rack or basket style rake but it is more to the family mini van type

i had one on my truck, i borrowed it off my friends jeep for a while, it was a yakima, three pieces fit my cap perfectly, and if you took out the center section it would fit the cab perfectly, the mounts for his grand cherokee roof rack also worked fine for my square tube ladder racks, he had the light cage on the front built for it, other wise its a pretty basic rack and easy to modify, i'd like to make one for myself someday, truck looked awesome with it

thanks man, the story behind that rack is my friend had it on his jeep and they failed him for inspection because of all the lights, so i helped him take it off and we put it on my truck for a car show i was going to, theres a few things i would have changed, mount the back facing lights lower, and make different mounts for the the side facing lights
three cool things about it: he had LEDs all over the inside of it so it lit up nice at night if you needed to get the high-light or the spare or the shovel off, the light cage on the front was adjustable so on his truck he could reach up through the sun roof and aim it up or down, it spilts into three pieces, so with all three put together it fits a ranger cap exactly, and i measured it and found that if you pulled the center section it would fit a ranger cab perfectly
