Just opened it up and it's missing parts. Was planning to install tomorrow. Please help! It's missing the 3, long, base bars that support the whole thing. Someone please call me asap to see if we can get those parts shipped overnight. Time is of the essence. Thank you.

Review from a similar Safari Rack 5.0 in Roof Basket


I bought this for a trip we were doing last summer. I was originally going to go with a more Custom built rack but the wait was too long.

I had a good time building this and fitting it to our Hummer H3. It worked great for freeing up space for the family. We spent a week out on the road with no issues. It is a little taller than I was originally looking for but the Safari style rask is very easy to use and pack. I have had it mounted for a year now and had no issues.

Critical pieces missing that were supposed to be in the package, couldn't mount for the road trip we needed roof rack for. Bad customer service, said they would email me with info regarding missing parts and they did not.


Comments
I am sorry that we seemed to have ped the ball on the communication front. I will send this to our customer service team and have them make sure you are up to date on what is happening with your order.

Website did not clearly indicate that factory rail clamps ARE NOT included had to order separate even though they are ShoWN on pictures. Disappointed


Comments
We do list on the product page that the adapters are sold separately as there are different adapters depending on the type of rack that you have.

Review from a similar Safari Rack 5.0 in Roof Basket


This went together easily with two people working on it. The gaps in the frame make it a bit tricky to load certain items but we are usually using a large cargo bag inside this. The gap size is a trade-off with affordable price. It's been sturdy. We have left it installed on our 2007 Toyota Highlander since we got it about 6 months ago.

Review from a similar Safari Rack 5.0 in Roof Basket


I've had this rack on my 1995 Grand Cherokee and it's still great. Paint has finally started peeling but count the years to 2018 and it's been at 6000 feet in sun all that time! These roof racks by Surco are the impossible combination; light and sturdy.
This longer version is going on my 4x4 full size expedition Van.
The box arrived quickly, and it's a precision fit together.
However, like all roof rack baskets, they show a set of floor slats that are not part of the kit and no disclaimer about it. Just because the others are doing that sort of misleading marketing doesn't mean they have to.

I would like more floor options, like a chain link fence which could be rolled for easy shipping or expanded metal.
I would also like color options, I need this one in white, so I'll have to paint it.

etrailer got right on this order and it arrived earlier than I expected.

Review from a similar Safari Rack 5.0 in Roof Basket


Works great, sits low is almost as wide as my renegade, doesn't weigh much but is plenty sturdy, doesn't make an unreasonable amount of wind noise and make a great mount for off-road lights take the time to read and measure to install it correctly and it sits stable hasn't moved in close to 10,000 miles after the initial install and tightening, also a great way to move tough bulky items out of a limited interior compartment, like highlight Jack's and other weather proof off-road essentials

Review from a similar Safari Rack 5.0 in Roof Basket


I have had this rack on my Ford Excursion for a full year now. I go whitewater kayaking about every weekend and they fit in the rack very nicely. I bought a 4'x8' sheet of expanded steel mesh for a floor, cut it to length, painted it with truck bed liner, and fastened it to the cross bars with sheet metal screws so I wouldn't have to worry about balancing on the cross bars while loading and tying down gear.
This summer we went to from TN to CO with 3 boats stuffed full of gear on top, and it handled them with ease.
Get the folding ladder to make loading and unloading a breeze!

I chose this rack to mount on my PUTCO venture bed rack because its the same exact size as the bed of my 2019 Ranger I used Yakima mounts for quick on and off. Couldnt be happier and love the look

Awesome product. Assembly was straightforward but did take a bit of time. Installation and removal of the rack are a breeze. Very happy with the service from etrailer.com. Incredible amount of product information on the site that allowed me to make an informed decision, and shipping was fast and free.

Review from a similar Safari Rack 5.0 in Roof Basket



Thank you. I have had the product
installed and I must say the wind noise it creates is very shrill and causes my ears to ring long after I have stopped driving. Is there a wind deflector for this product ? ??????


Comments
Unfortunately, any object installed on a vehicle roof is going to cause some wind turbulence, this is unavoidable. Surco doesnt offer a wind deflector at this time, Im sorry to say.

Well built and a perfect fit on my 2000 trooper. It’s going to need the floor kit, 3 slats aren’t enough

Premium price, Premium quality. Fits my car perfect; looks nice. I would recommend buying this and not buying a cheap one. My loving dog ate one of the trim pieces right before I installed it…

Although I haven’t installed the rack yet it looks great and I think it will work fine. I’m putting it on my jetboat so it isn’t exactly what it was intended for but I’m anxious to see the final results! Pictures to follow soon!

  • Large Roof Cargo Carrier Options for 2003 GMC Savana Van with Rain Gutters
    To get a roof basket/rack on your 2003 GMC Savana Van that's even close to a 250 lb weight rating you're going to need to go with the Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform Rack - Gutter Mount # RR93QX which is 100" Long x 62" Wide so it's a bit larger than the Yakima MegaWarrior # Y07080-82 you were asking about. The Pioneer mounts directly to your Savana using the gutter mounts and it can handle up to 242 lbs. The MegaWarrior you asked about is only able to handle up to 130 lbs so even if you had...

  • How Do I Mount The Surco Safari Rack # SP1101 To My 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe
    You will need to put a roof rack on your 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe first. I recommend the Yakima JetStream Crossbars # Y00426, the SkyLine Towers # Y00148 and the Landing Pad 17 # Y00243.
