Custom Roof Rack/Basket


New member
Hello all,

I have a roof rack that I had custom built for our 2011 F150 Screw ARE cap with the stock Yakima rails. It is built out of 3/4" sch 80 aluminum pipe with a epoxy primer and and urethane bedliner type black paint. Rack is less than two years old. Looking to switch to a roof rack bar system to mount awning and plastic roof carrier.


OD: 54.5"L x 51.25"W x 6.25"H
ID: 50"L x 49"W x 5.5"H

Clearance from center of roof to basket bottom - 1.75"

Bolt Width - 44.5" across center to center

Looking for $750 or trade for Yakima type roof racks with awning/carrier system (or any of the above + cash difference)

Located in 70461 but could possibly deliver to the east coast.

One thing to remember while shopping for a roof reck basket is overall weight of the rack. Roof has an 80 kg limit and I know from experience that you can overload it and do damage. The cross bars I seem to remember are around 10 kg and many of the racks around are getting close to 20 so it doesn't take long to add up even with just light bulky stuff. Do lots of research - this source should help .
