    I'm planning to buy a Thule carrier basket, but I'm not sure I know how it will mount to the truck. I've tried to do a search on this, but working off my phone is being a pain in the tail. Can anyone tell me how to mount it to the truck. Without rigging something up either. Thanks in advance.

    Voodoos stuff is top notch.
    Is it going on the roof or in the bed?

    I wish I had spent the money on a good quality, heavy duty rack from the start. I've got the Yakima Q tower setup, and by the time you have the clips, towers, bars and basket you could have paid for a PRINSU, Baja, or frontrunner rack. Now my truck looks like this, too

    No I don't have racks, and when I just saw the price of them. I changed my idea on it all together. $500+ in just racks and basket, and then have to buy a bag. No thanks. I'm just going to order a cargo bag for the bed of the truck.
