I replaced a new Thule cargo rack with a Yakima LoadWarrior! The Yakima had a cleaner mounting system, with great accessories (HiLift & Shovel mounts). The Yakima had a much better fit and assembly than the Thule. But Yakima mounting hardware left a lot to be desired. The handscrews are difficult to tighten, and have loosened with age. The bolt ends protrude up into the cargo space, which could scratch or rip the cargo. Both Yakima and Thule have lost their level of quality control and good design over the years. But Yakima is still my choice.
This basket has been so helpful with my wrangler, going to and from college, up to the mountain and back, or down from Alaska to Colorado it has got the done perfectly! Add the net and you have one of the greatest external storage options available out there. I have mine on a Kargo Master Congo Cage that can hold up to 2,000 lbs, I don't put more than 200 in there so I don't roll over on every turn. I love this basket .
More Room and Killer Looks
I bought this item back in 2000 and it has seen it's fair share of weather and it still looks great. If you need extra room for gear, this is a great option. No wind noise!Words of caution. When I was installing the system by myself, it slipped and dented the roof of my vehicle. So, I recommend a two person install just to be safe.
