This rack is a great addition to your vehicle for cargo space and appearance. When I first considered this basket, I was concerned that it would be too big for my 99 Jeep Grand Cherokee, especially since there was no review from someone who owned a Jeep.
This basket is actually 48" wide, 52" long, and 6.5" height and fits my Jeep PERFECT. I could actually use the Yakima Megawarrior extension. Very easy to install, only took about 30 minutes. I chose this basket over Thule because of the optional accessories of a locking bracket (to prevent theft) and light brackets for aux fog lights. Looks great with my KC long range lights. If you are worried about someone ripping off your basket, I'd get the locking brackets.
This basket does come with a wind fairing, but be aware that it still causes some lag. I've lost about 1-2 mpg, although it is not very noisy.
The mounting brackets are "universal" and will fit square, round and for Jeep owners, the type of factory crossbars that are wide and thin. Actually, the brackets seemed to fit my factory crossbars better than it would for square ones. So Jeep Grand Cherokee owners, rest at ease, this basket is perfect for you!
