Will the mega warrior roof basket fit the original equipment roof rails for a tacoma crew cab trd offroad.


Does the Mega Warrior basket mount to factory Xterra bars? I’m wanting to put a cargo basket on top of my 2012 Xterra Pro4X. From the Q&A section I saw where it says this will fit an xterra but I want to make sure I know exactly what I’ll need to buy. Will the rack include the mount kit needed? Or do I also need to buy rack mounts and other crossbars in addition to the basket? Thanks

Hey Ian, You're going to want to check out Yakima's site, they have a feature where it'll tell you exactly what you need to mount that to your vehicle! https://www.yakima.com/megawarrior

Safari Style

I've put it through the wringer

Damn I love the way this thing looks on top of my 4runner - not to mention the extra room and comfort it adds removing gear from inside the cab. I've thrown everything from coolers, jugs and kayaks to firewood up there. In the winter she takes on the Powderhound snowboard rack and doesn't miss a beat. Looks like I may need a sweet light bar however..............


Love this rack!

Picked this up for my buddies bday gift and he's so stoked. Overall quality is what you would expect from Yakima. Nothing but the best. Look no further for your future rack.

I love this thing. I thought it would be noisy on the top of my car and may drain my gas mileage.. nope! I haven't noticed any change in gas mileage and my car isn't any louder. Its super nice have the extra storage space for long road trips, and the ability to haul stuff home from home depot.


Is the Mega Warrior too big for a 2006...

Is the Mega Warrior too big for a 2006 Jeep Liberty? Should I go with the Load Warrior?

Your first step should be getting your roof dimensions, but having a rough idea of the size of your Liberty, I know that it's going to absolutely cover the majority of top of it. The Mega Warrior can be scaled down to essentially a 4" wider version of the Load Warrior by just removing 4 screws. It's nice to have the option of using it either way. A lot depends on your load requirements. The Mega holds a lot of gear, but the Load Warrior never quite seems to hold enough and requires some creative packing to keep the load lower in profile. I use mine on an Xterra, and in the Mega Warrior configuration, set behind my factory gear basket, it goes right to the back hatch. All that said, if your Liberty's dimensions can handle the size, and for what's currently a really small price difference, go with the Mega. And you'll definitely want to throw a gear net on top of it. Hope this helps you out.




what type of crossbars are you using on the stock rails here?

Well worth it

Fits great on my jeep. I also added lights to the basket. Much better quality than the less expensive baskets.


Hello- I've been looking over your website...

Hello- I've been looking over your website and am trying to configure a roof basket on top of my Jeep Cherokee Sport (1999 model). It has a roof rack (side bars) on now but I'd like to put the Yakima Megawarrior basket on top of it. In addition, I'd like to carry a canoe (for family of 3) (looking at the Yakima Gunwale brackets/canoe rack for this) or 3 kayaks but not all at the same time. I would, however, like to have the brackets or rack for the canoe always set up and the brackets or racks for the 3 kayaks already set up so I can mix or match. My questions are: Can this be done with the Megawarrior basket? Is the Megawarrior basket compatible with a 1999 Cherokee Sport? What would be the best way to go about or, in other words, which other brackets or racks could I attach directly to the Megawarrior basket to make all of this work the way I want it to? Would the Megawarrior basket support one regular size fiberglass canoe or three lightweight kayaks?

i have a 2002 subaru impreza rs. (with the round headlights) i want a badass roof rack to be functional with camping. the load warriors are awesome looking. but anyways the real question is. will it fit on the wisperbar through. i like the sleek look. also does it come with locks so it can't be stolen.

Can the megawarrior fit on a nissan xterra?

Hey there, yes it will fit your Xterra.... the MegaWarrior Basket is compatible with round, square, and factory cross bars...

I have this exact set-up and it covers the entire factory rack behind the cargo basket up front. Works great though. My Xterra is '04, so unless they've changed from the oval factory cross bars, or Yakima changed their mounting kit, you need 4 rail grabs to mount on the two round factory side rails and a pair of 48"(min) Yakima cross bars. While you're building your system, I would also suggest you go ahead and pick up a set of 4 like-keyed lock cylinders.

can you use one of this rack for spare tires? have h2 hummer, wondering if this rack hold my spare tire.

Check out the Rhino-Rack Alloy Tray on the site as you can place spare tires, gas tanks, propane tanks, highlift jack, shovels on the tray with the right accessories!

Subaru Outback Sport

This thing is way cool! I had to get a roof rack to haul gear for a 5 day, 4 person backacking trip in Zion and this thing is going to work perfectly! Its pretty big on the Sub, but it fits well enough and will hold all of our packs.

Mega Sweet

This Yakima rack fit right on my 99 jeep grand cherokee out of the box perfectly. Doesn't get in the way of the sun roof and all the accessories that I already had for my car work with it. I put my bike mounts on and another perfect fit. Doesn't get in the way of the back hatch. This rack is sweet!

I have a 2004 Grand and was worried it would either interfere with my sun roof or hang over too far and hit the hatch when it opened. Thanks for the info. I was also concerned about the width. Does it hang over the side much?

I see a mountain bike in the picture, is the mega warrior setup to carry bikes? Or is that just a picture.

There are options for mounting a bike onto this cargo basket, but you'd have to buy other things. so it's just the picture. if you set it up right you can have the basket and a bike rack or two, if your crossbars are long enough.

have 09 buick enclave w factory cross bar and rack (two separate rails) do I need a mounting system for this. Example (thule ride on adapter......

Your best bet is to click on the Car Configurator up at the top and go through the steps. It will tell you exactly what you need.

Is it possible to mount one of these to a Jeep Wrangler?

If you've got the right roof setup, then yes. If you have the cloth roof, no.

Your best bet would be to go to www.Quadratec.com for Wrangler products.

Extra Room

The Mega Warrior gave us the extra room inside the car that we needed. This along with the Destination 10 made for a smooth trip - Plus it looked good on the expedition.
