Hey, guys. I'm Ryan from ExtremeTerrain.com, and this is my review of the Barricade Roof Rack Basket. This roof basket is compatible with Barricade Roof Racks installed on a two door JK, a standard length TJ, or a YJ. This will not work on a Barricade Roof Rack installed on a four door JK or an LJ. This basket is for those of you who want to be able to carry some additional cargo in your TJ, JK, or YJ. So you have your Barricade Roof Rack installed, but you want to be able to carry smaller multiple items that would normally fall through the roof rack slats. The roof rack basket has a floor and some sides that are really nice for carrying smaller items, especially when in conjunction with a cargo net. If you're okay with the additional height and weight that a roof rack basket adds, this can definitely be useful. This roof rack basket is built from light weight tubular aluminum. Weight is really important whenever you're adding mass above the center of gravity, and this is a lot lighter than some of the all steel baskets that I've handled.You'll notice that it's finished with a black textured powder coat finish, which is the same as the Barricade Roof Rack so everything works really well together. This'll give you 50 inches by 70 inches of cargo space, and you'll be able to hold up to 300 pounds. The rack is designed for easy loading and unloading from the front and the back. Now some of our customers have noticed a little additional wind turbulence from having the additional tubs up on the roof, especially on a soft top Wrangler.Most roof rack companies will have roof rack baskets and other accessories that are designed to work specifically with their racks and Barricade is no different. This is designed to mount right on a Barricade Roof Rack. The nice thing about that is it will install without any drilling or cutting. It's completely bolt on and actually comes on and off without the use of any tools. Just some thumb screws. So you can put this on when you need it and take it off when you don't.All the hardware you need for the install is included, and the only additional tool you'll need is a Philips head screwdriver. The whole install will take you less than an hour. This roof rack basket is a little less expensive than some of the other baskets out there, but that's to be expected because the Barricade Roof Rack is less expensive than some of those other brands. This basket is light weight, it's strong, and it serves its purpose. I think it's worth the cost, especially when you consider all the features that it adds. So that's my review of the Barricade Roof Rack Basket that fits all Barricade Roof Racks installed on two door JKs, standard length TJs, and YJs. And you can find it right here at ExtremeTerrain.com.

Not worth the money
I received the box, opened it and found that the pipes were loose. And the styrofoam broken up. It did not look new but rather like a return slapped together. I assemble the rack and had a lot of trouble mounting the rack on my barracked roof rack. The U bolts and mounts did not match up well withe the rack and it they are skewed. One of the Ublots did not even thread the nuts on. I had to basically rethread it it took me almost a hour just to mount the stupid thing. Then the kicker is that it is very noisy when you drive. It rattles a lot. I am very disappointed. I should probably give it a one star.Helpful (3)

Everything fit perfect, easy to install. I put it together in the rain, so the instructions were impossible to read, but unnecessary. Had it mounted on the roof rack in 30 minutes. Thanks for a great product.Helpful (2)

Overall I would give this roof rack a 4 star. It would have been a 5 star rating if the screws were bigger and easier to use.Helpful (2)

Not bad. Looks cool and works
Not a huge fan of how the basket connects to the roof rack, but it definitely looks awesome and does get the job done. I haven’t had much more than 100 lbs up there but it seems like it will hold up to a lot more.Helpful (3)

Rock'n my Top!
I love the ease at which my daughter, son and I were able to assemble the roof rack and attach to the Wrangler. We wrangled all over the beaches of Cape Cod and loved how much easier it was to take our gear on top!!Helpful (3)

Is this roof rack compatible with a windshield mounted LED light bar? Also, will I have to remove the rack if I want to remove my soft top? Thanks
The Barricade Roof Rack Basket and Barricade Roof Rack are compatible with most windshield mount light bars, but clearance should be checked before final installation is made. Removing the roof rack and basket is not required to remove the soft top, however removing the roof basket and the roof rack cross bars would make removal much easier.
Whenever I use the basket, my jeep sways violently from side to side (like a boat rocking motion). Its fine if basket is empty but if I put anything in it, the jeep starts rocking. I've tried loading in different configurations but it still does it. Am I missing something?
When loading gear to the Barricade Roof Rack Basket or any other roof basket, you are adding weight significantly over your Wrangler's Center of gravity. Depending on the weight of your gear, some changes in ride characteristics are to be expected, however they should not be violent. We recommend checking tire pressures carefully, and verifying the condition of all suspension components as loading weight this high can make issues with these much more noticeable.
Could you please tell me the dimensions of the shipping box that the basket comes in? Trying to determine whether I can take it as checked luggage on a plane.
The box would be 55.25" L x 30.38" W 10.38" H.
How many inches does this sit above the hard top? I need to see if it clears my garage door.
The Barricade Roof Rack Basket will sit approximately 14" above the roof when used with a Barricade Roof Rack. Using a different roof rack will effect overall height.
Can I run rack and basket through a car wash?
We recommend hand washing, or using a self service car wash systems to ensure components on the rack is not damaged.
No, this is only the basket to install on to the roof rack.
We do apologize, but hardware is not sold separately.
This will only work with a Barricade Off-Road roof rack.
This will vary on the snorkel and Jeep you have. Please call our call center for further information.
We have not attempted to mount this to that rack, however we believe this would work.
It would depend on your Jeep- if you have a lift, what year and model it is, tire size, etc. We would be happy to help you determine if the Barricade Roof Rack and Basket will work for your Jeep but we would need some additional information from you. Please contact us directly for additional help! Our contact information can be found here: https://www.extremeterrain.com/contact.html.
