    OP, are you buying it to use it, or for looks? I had a Yakima for my bikes on my car; useless [for me] on my truck...so I sold it. They're solid rack systems, and worth the money imho; but, if you're buying it for looks, you may want to consider spending your $ on something else.

    P.S.: You can price check the components on the Yakima website.

    Come and take it from my cold, dead hands.
    3" suspension lift (ToyTec coilovers and wheeler leafs), Yakima roof rack, ARE tonneau, K&N FIPK.
    I have a Yakima rack on my '01 ext-cab and I use it to haul two kayaks. I don't have any complaints.

    I would find out how much money he has in the rack and basket and offer 50-75% of his cost.

    I had a set up like that when I had my Rodeo and I loved it. Traded the Rodeo in for my Tacoma and didn't need it anymore, but it was well worth the money when I had it.

    I'd like to see an xtracab with something like that on it... Are you sure you'd have enough length to fit a basket? I think it'd be cool just not sure on the space.

    Yea i know i could fit the basket cause he had a truck just like mine same color and all but a v6 instead of an i4 that he sold and got a new fj and i remember he ran the basket when we went and road dirtbikes all the time so it should fit fine

    If you use it, its worth it. I have one on my cap and I thought I would only use it for the kayak/canoe, MTB bike, and a few others. But I've used it for various odds and ends. It comes in handy all the time.

    There is a 1st Gen. Reg. Cab by my house, and the guy has a Yakima roof rack and basket on his roof. I'm not sure if it's the same basket the OP has, but it looks really good!
