So, I think my next project will be a drop-in roof basket. I've been combing through the forum for ideas and didn't see a thread specifically addressing drop-in baskets (though there is the Roof Rack thread for full replacements and accessories). So for both my benefit and yours, I've compiled a list of all the drop-in baskets, both professionally fabricated and homebrewed, that I could find.


Firstly, we can't go anywhere without mentioning DepHep:

Starting at $265, with many add-ons available. Now available through XterraPerformance (formerly Offroad Performance Products).


Next up, Garvin makes a basket specifically designed for the X:

Specifically the "Wilderness Adventure Rack," available for upwards of $450.



And that's all I've got for options you can buy. Here are all the homebrew baskets - they are not necessarily for purchase but are definitely unique in their own rights. These threads are also worth reading to see how some of the ideas took shape.

You're right, I forgot about him! I even gave him advice as to how to get the thing onto his roof (which he ignored).
Wutchu talkin bout willis? I do not remember this...

Also, I added some hi-lift mounts to mine a while after it was initially made. Heres a pic of that:





Also, if anyone wants me to make you one, send me a PM and we can work something out. :eek:ccasion5:
