LoadWarrior Roof Cargo Basket (8007070) by Yakima®. The LoadWarrior rooftop cargo basket is perfect for carrying bikes, skis, boats, luggage, spare tires, shovels, double basses, grandfather clocks, miscellaneous knickknacks and the kitchen sink.

This cargo basket is so useful, once it's mounted on your roof rack you won't ever want to take it down. Sized for small and mid-size vehicles, this 44"L x 39"W x 6.5"H basket has the capacity to carry gear you don't have room for or may not want to carry inside your vehicle, including luggage, camping equipment, sports gear, gas cans, and off-road accessories. And the dimensions of the basket can be expanded with the addition of an optional 18" extension. A cargo basket is really great for odd-size items that can be difficult to secure on a roof by themselves. Load them into the basket and secure with the optional cargo net and you can be on your way.

The LoadWarrior, and optional extension, are manufactured from durable galvanized steel tubing that is further rust-proofed by powder coating. With its universal attachment system it mounts quickly and easily to virtually any rack system including those with round, square, factory, and aero crossbars. A custom wind fairing is included to reduce noise, making the basket an unobtrusive addition to your roof rack.

Another reason your cargo basket can remain in place is that its crossbars will accept Yakima accessories. The basket's 40" crossbar spacing makes it an ideal platform for Yakima boat, ski, and bike carriers. And speaking of carriers, Yakima has developed a line of accessories that enable the LoadWarrior to carry a spare tire, off-road lights, axes, shovels, and a Hi-Lift Jack. The Locking Bracket is another option that is available to prevent the theft of your basket from the roof rack. It locks the basket to the crossbars and includes 2 SKS lock cylinders and keys.

The LoadWarrior Roof Cargo Basket comes with all necessary hardware and detailed, illustrated assembly/installation instructions. It's backed by a limited lifetime warranty against defects in materials and workmanship.

Yakima® Products, of Beaverton, Oregon is one of the world's largest manufacturers of cargo and recreational equipment carrying solutions. Founded 40 years ago in its namesake city, Yakima's guiding principle is that gear should be carried on the outside of the vehicle to make room for more friends inside. To achieve that goal the company makes roof rack systems for any style roof, and an array of roof rack, receiver hitch, trunk lid and hatch, and trailer mounted carriers. Yakima's designers and engineers are outdoor enthusiasts, campers, and travelers just like you, and they listen and learn what other enthusiasts need and want while participating in those activities. The combination of their own personal experience with that of other enthusiasts enables them to create the finest carriers and accessories for bicycles, watercraft, skis & snowboards, and cargo & camping. Yakima products are manufactured using the highest quality materials and the best engineering practices, and Yakima is so confident that you'll be completely satisfied with your purchase that they're backed by a "Love It Till You Leave It" lifetime warranty.

    Great Product!! So excited when it arrived. Pay extra attention to the directions - gotta make sure the assembly is just right or it won't align properly.

    Perfect instructions. Easy to assemble. A little tricky to mount on my Ford F-150, had to reverse the mounting bracket due to the OEM equipment. During and after a 1400 mile roundtrip, everything still tight and in place.
