Roof Basket without the roof rack?

i've searched and searched, and could not find anything on what i want. so forgive me if this has already been asked or posted but this is what i am looking for:

A roof basket mounted on a 2nd gen double cab tacoma in the existing screw holes on the roof. i just want the basket an inch or so off the top of the roof.
I don't like how high the basket sits when mounted on a roof rack.

does this exist or can somone make one?

this is the kind of style i'm looking for btw:

i was thinking that but i was afraid the cost for fab would be more than finding one already made. thanks though.

I was interested in the same thing except for an extended cab. I ended up making my own. I just used 3/4 inch EMT conduit and some yakima Qtowers I found at a wrecking yard.I am only into the build for 110$ including the bender.
