Roof Basket Ideas?

Hey guys. I am looking at putting a basket on top of my shell. I bought it with the yakima track system and cross bars already installed. I'm just looking for different options of baskets. I want to be able to mount a hi-lift on one side and a shovel and ax on the other. I want a nice durable rack, while still staying money conscious. What do ya'll like?

I've had a Defender Rack, Yakima MegaWarrior and I currently have a BajaRack. All excellent products. I'd rate the BajaRack best due to it's very solid but lightweight construction, then the Yakima Megawarrior, then the Defender.

Haven't had many ideas.

I've been looking at this one: http://www.discountramps.com/car-roof-rack.htm

Only because it's cheap haha. but I haven't gotten anything yet. I've had a few deals come up as far as a ham radio and front coils. so it may be a bit before I get a basket. But i'm still researching and trying to find other possibilities.

That one does look pretty nice. They also have those here: http://www.discountramps.com/roof-cargo-basket.htm if you want to wait a little on the roof rack.

I couldn't find anything cheaper than $300 shipped, and then found this at Sears. Got it with the extension (makes a ~5ft rack) delivered for $200 to the Sears outlet up the road.
Not mounted yet, but it looks to be good quality and looks hawt on the topper's Yakrack

That's Sears Canada, fyi
