I don't like the way it looks. But if you're going for function over looks then get it. Might look alright and more balanced on top of a bed shell but not on top like that.

just my opinion though.

I say ditch the Basket. Keep the Roof Rack though, I think they look good. Got one on my Double Cab

I agree. I think roof racks like that look better on full size trucks & jeeps. My buddy has one on his Chevy & with the light rack, it's pretty loud from the wind on the fwy. I tripped out the first time I heard it.

Good price though & if it will be useful for you I'd say get it.

Basket is cool and all, but would definitely look a LOT better on a shell. The rack is nice, though

I'm sure the basket is very useful. If you're going on a camping trip or something I'd put it on. Normally tho, I think it looks like a bit of a bird catcher. Keep the roof rack on and keep the basket in the garage until a trip that calls for it

BTW, I had a Rola Basket on my old car, and it cut down on the gas mileage by about 2 mpg and had lots of wind noise. It was a pain in the butt to clean the top of my car.

Cool on camping trips though!

I'd say just put the basket on when you need it. Otherwise it's pretty cool and a great deal!

You know, I like roof racks. But I, in my own thought and alternate world just can't swing getting one when i have a pickup truck. Now with out a doubt if I had an suv, or FJ, or 4Runner, I would be getting one in a heart beat, but I just think whats the point of having a pickup bed then.
