Description:

If Genghis Khan could have his pick of cargo baskets to mount on his trusty steed, he wouldn't pass up the Yakima MegaWarrior. This colossal cargo carrier is the biggest and best that Yakima makes, delivering enough space to hold up to 4 bikes, 3 kayaks and a bike, or even a kayak and a mid-sized catapult.

Whether you're storming over rugged badlands or Blitzkrieg-bopping around on a road trip, the Yakima MegaWarrior Cargo Basket provides the sturdiest platform for holding your extra gear. Its no-nonsense construction starts with powerful steel ribs that are welded together. Then, every square inch is weather-treated, spitting in the eye of Mother Nature's fury.

Up-armoring your ride with the Yakima MegaWarrior Cargo Basket is simple. The universal attachment system sinks its claws into round, square or factory crossbars. And, the included wind fairing swats away most wind whistle. You can also upgrade your MegaWarrior with an extension, a cargo net, and a number of brackets for enhanced versatility. Lifetime Warranty.

Purchased for 1999 ford expedition

Very happy with included mounts and overall quality. the width is perfect, however the length of the standard is a little small proportionally to the vehicle. extensions are available, or order the longer version.

Good Product Experience

All in all a good product. I do get some noise w/ this on my 5th gen 4Runner, at 40++ MPH. Haven't taken it on the highway yet, so hope it not too significant at 70 - 75 MPH. Where the basket comes together on the sides (connecting front to back) they come in at a bit of an angle, so there's a low point in the middle of the basket, on the side rails....it's just not exactly level from the very front to the very back. Would be nice if it was just one solid basket, not two pieces.

Impulse Buy That Was Well Worth It

Good afternoon all, I recently did a road trip to go visit my son and realized I really didn't want to use my hitch hauler on my Transit Van. Enter the Yakima Mega Warrior. I got the extension as well. Quality is what you would expect from Yakima, as all of there gear is top notch. Fit perfectly on my Thule Aeroblade rack system. A truly solid person and the customer service from Auto Anything is always perfect.

Great Rack

Well made rack, went together easily, fit the crossbars fine. Instructions were good. Its definitely to be used for lighter things (Max weight 120lbs on a Subaru Outback rail system), but frees up the back of the car for heavier cargo. A little pricey, but you get what you pay for.

Basket with extension

This is a good quality basket, but it's still relatively light. I can pick it up by myself, and lift it onto the roof of my SUV.

Works well !

Arrived relatively quick, without any damage and all necessary parts. It makes a very great addition to my F150, especially for camping. I've only used it once so far, but would purchase it again from Autoanything. Although I feel it was overall pretty expensive Autoanything seem to have a decent price in comparison. It is very easy to put together and install.

Mega warrior on my 2012 4runner

Im typing from my iphone so please forgive me for any wrong words. My 4runner has a third row so when the boogers are in the back there isnt much cargo space but having the mega warrior mitigated that problem. Its strong and sturdy. I can put almost anything on top of it. The weight limit is the only down fall but thats ok. It looks great on my 4runner and ive already got 2 preople to get it for theirs.

Great Rack but you pay for it.

This rack his heavy duty and looks great. It is everything you would expect from Yakima. I wish it was able to support more weight though, other manufacturers rate theirs higher. Price is up there too but that comes with anything Yakima but I don't mind paying for quality. Buy once, cry once.

Perfect for the top of a Commander

The rack is the perfect size for the roof of this vehicle with the extension. Still fits without, but with the extension it really fills the top nicely, and the additional space is great also. At speeds up to about 60-65, I have not noticed any additional noise. Now when I get to around 70, I do hear a deep basey sound. This is all with nothing up top, so it could change with gear overhead. The design & quality is top notch. Assembly was a breeze with included instructions. I like to go camping, and sometimes I just sleep in the back of my Jeep Commander. I needed some additional space to haul & store gear/equipment. Granted, I can pile a bunch of stuff inside the Jeep, but after setting up camp (air mattress in the back), I don't have room inside. I used to throw stuff under the Jeep, but now I can toss it on top. Items that I really don't want inside can ride up on top also. I have yet to mount a kayak or two on top, but we will see how that goes in the future as most of the waters right now are frozen.

not much to say

I had been wanting this for a while on my 2003 Ford Expedition and when a good sale came up I purchased it with the extension and bungie net thing. Assembly and installation was very easy. I might upgrade my flimsy factory cross bars at some point but they seem to hold the basket fine. There is some wind noise at speeds approaching highway speeds but it seems it gets less as you go a bit faster. The front wind fairing might rattle on you so you will probably have to use something like velcro to hold it in place. I have not got a chance to actually use the basket yet but I got so that when I need it I am ready. With three kids, two adults, a large double stroller and other stuff, this should come in pretty handy.

Great Purchase!!

I received the rack in a few days and had it installed on my 2008 Jeep Patriot in less than an hour. I just went camping this past weekend and was able to fit five people and five people's worth of camping gear, fire wood, and food all in one vehicle thanks to the spacious and sturdy Yakima MegaWarrior. I also got the light mounts and installed some Kc Daylighters for some added light on the dirt mountain roads at night. You won't be disappointed with this product.

Easy to Install. Looks great!

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!
