Surprised there wasn't already a thread for this. The medium size Yakima offgrid basket is also sold by Ford, so you can apply your Fordpass points to it, which is what I did. Paid I think $212.

It's fairly small, so I may add the extension to it which makes it 18" longer. For now I'm just testing it out - never had a basket before. Haven't put any gear in it yet either. Undecided if I'll leave it up there all the time or not. Probably not.

For reference, I have it installed on 50" Yakima Jetstream crossbars. It does not add much noise at all in my opinion, I guess that little fairing works well.

I did not like how close the mounts to the cross bars were to each other the way Yakima ships the basket. The instructions explain how to remove and rotate them 180 degrees so they clamp on the "outer" edge of the wide bar they mount to. This spreads them farther apart several inches and inspires more confidence for load stability.

We have the loadwarrior with extension and would highly recommend the extension.

This looks really good, I have been going back and forth one which rack to go with. For me I think I will go with the larger basket, but I think this looks great on your BB. I plan on keeping my on all the time once I get one, if it doesn't make too much noise. Thanks for posting!

Oh yeah! That I do like that a lot. Time to get shopping! Thanks for posting!
I would recommend the offgrid one vs the loadwarrior. The loadwarrior was leftover from our old explorer from a few years back.

But also look at the megawarrior if you aren't planning on using an awning on the side like we are.

Yakima states that the dimensions are: L 44.00 in x W 40.00 in x H 7.00 in. Do you know if that's for the interior or exterior?

Thanks!

Nice pictures...
By the way, I just drove about 850 miles with the Yakima offgrid on... the max mpg was 24 ... 80 mph average

Looks great. Is it pretty light? I know there are some heavier ones out there that cut into load capacity.
