Love it. Looks great. Easy to install on factory crossbars


attached are a few pics I took of the Yakima load warrior I purchased over the summer. I was meant to send them months ago but life got in the way. Great product easy to install.


I just installed this basket with the extender. I am totally pleased with it's quality and easy of assembly. I did ask etrailer about the fit for a 93 Wrangler with a Smittybilt rack (pics included). I was told that the rack without the extender would not fit so I ordered the package. They were correct, it had to have the extender but not for the reason they told me. the spacing between the rails for the rack were OK but the middle rail on the rack placed the brackets for the basket directly over the cloth top frame and they rubbed, which would have worn the top. I am glad I ordered the extender. One thing: I tried to order the light bracket kit but it was OOS so they told me they would not send anything until those were in. I needed the basket now and did not want to wait for the entire order(and pay interest on my credit card). I cancelled the order and then did reorder just the basket and extender later. Now I will have to pay shipping on the light brackets. In all-I love that basket-it looks great, the fit and finish is perfect and it's strong beyond expectations.

Excellent for a year now. Ive attached lights back and sides, have an axe holder on one side and a shovel holder on the other-absolutely no rust compared to the cheaper ones, its tight, stays in place and wind noise is nominal. This is a great product.

Great rack. Nicely powder coated. Easy on / off for Winter Storage. Looks great on my 2018 Dodge Durango GT. Very versatile. I’ve hauled everything from luggage to lumber.


Awesome product! Feels nice and solid. Instructions were easy to read and installation was a breeze! Whole lot of room up on the roof now. Exactly what I was expecting. Could ask for more

Still working as great as the first day! Love how convenient the basket is when I have giant items to move.

Everything arrived in a short time. East to assemble. Good instructions. Got the cargo basket mounted on the car without any problems.Had afew questions which tech support at Etrailer answered.Everyone there was very prfessional,friendly and helpful. Can't say enough good things about Etrailer.Thank you!


Happy with this purchase I made looks great on my truck


A perfect first trip from our home in Boylston MA to Newark, Delaware to drop our daughter off at college. Packed the rack with a small mountain of stuff, covered it with a waterproof tarp. A seven hour trip mostly in pouring rain, left everything pack in the hotel parking lot overnight in the still raining. The rain stopped in the late morning and in time for our move in time. At move in we uncovered the load to find everything dry an exactly in place. Great product, I now leave it on the car for my everyday needs.


Quick shipping, good product an easy to install!


Large, sturdy, and a great addition to the car. Very happy with the purchase. The only thing to note, which I don’t consider a “problem” but is a reality, is that it definitely creates more wind noise on the highway compared to not having it.


The assembly and installation was quick and easy. It the rack looks and feels solid, I can’t wait to put my canoe on and hit the road. I may order another extension since there is plenty of room on my Yukon XL.


Yakima rack arrived faster than a speeding bullet....! Service was helpful each time I called - always spoke to real person that was able to answer the questions.

Yakima rack looks awesome on 2010 4Runner. Could not be happier with the product. Only took about 30 minutes to put together and install.


Would highly recommend these products Service was amazing !


Product was as advertised & delivered on time. Etrailer staff was very helpful in placing order & answering questions. I would order through them again


I love this product love the way it looks and it can handle heavy weight. Need sponsors this


Love it!


Great offerings, great prices, great delivery time... What else can I say. Great job folks. I will be looking here first for my next purchase.




Great basket and fast shipping!



Review from a similar LoadWarrior in Roof Basket

Great rack. We will enjoy using it for travels.

Great! We traveled to beach last summer. The roof rack was a good storage place for our gear!

Review from a similar LoadWarrior in Roof Basket

Well done Yakima and etrailer. Great product and great service. The product is well made (in Taiwan....not China) and the parts and instruction video made it relatively" easy to install. Two people helps to install it more readily. The wind diffuser in the front greatly reduces wind noise. All in all very happy and glad I bought through etrailer. Service was excellent and delivery prompt.

Great product!! Went through the winter with no hiccups. Recommended.

Review from a similar LoadWarrior in Roof Basket

Ordered Yakima Load Warrior Roof Rack Cargo Carrier and Cargo Net for my 2021 Telluride. Both products received as described. Roof rack instructions were clear and assembly straightforward. Had to slightly adjust recommended spacing between OEM crossbars to accommodate Yakima requirements - 30" vs 33". Thinness of OEM crossbars result in the threaded ends of the bolts that hold on support brackets sitting a little too high, potentially presenting a cargo scratching hazard. All in all, however, very pleased with product.


Review from a similar LoadWarrior in Roof Basket

Excellent product, well made and easy to install. etrailer shipped promptly, tracking provided with follow up emails. Highly recommended!

  • Roof Basket Recommendation for a 2009 Jeep Patriot with Thule AeroBlade Roof Rack
    For your 2009 Jeep Patriot that has a Thule Aeroblade roof rack installed on it, the Yakima LoadWarrior Roof Rack Cargo Basket # Y07070 would be a great option that would be compatible. For a bigger basket you could go with the # Y07070-74. This basket is 18 inches longer that the # Y07070. Check out the review video I attached for more info.

  • Can Yakima LoadWarrior Be Used On Top Of Basket Carrier On 1993 Jeep YJ Wrangler
    The Yakima LoadWarrior Roof Rack Cargo Basket, part # Y07070 requires crossbar spreads between 24 and 32-inches. Since you said your crossbars are 22-1/2 or 45-inches for the outer bars without the center bar. Based on these measurements the # Y07070 will not work without the extension. The LoadWarrior With Extension Kit, part # Y07070-74 can be used with a crossbar spread between 30 and 50 inches. The 45-inch distance you have with your two outer bars fits within this measurement so you...

  • Will the Yakima LoadWarrior Fit Factory Crossbars of a 2012 Toyota RAV4

  • Will the Yakima LoadWarrior Cargo Basket with Extension Fit a 2010 Mazda CX-9 with Factory Roof Rack
    On a roof rack the crossbar spread is measured from the center of the front bar to the center of the rear bar. The mounting hardware for the LoadWarrior cargo basket with extension, # Y07070-74, will fit the factory roof rack on your 2010 Mazda CX-9. With the extension the roof rack crossbar spread will need to be at least 30 inches to properly support the basket. If you are close (29 inches or more) then it would still be fine.

  • Could Yakima LoadWarrior with Extension Fit 2017 Toyota Tacoma with Factory Roof Rack
    Most likely yes, but Yakima doesn't have an option for your 2017 Toyota Tacoma with factory crossbars. What that means is that you'll have to measure the distance between the crossbars of your roof rack to determine if the Yakima LoadWarrior with Extension part # Y07070-74 will fit. If the bars can be adjusted between 30 and 50 inches apart this rack will fit and work well.

  • Can Load Bar for Yakima LoadWarrior Cargo Basket # Y07070-74 Be Removed
    Yes, the load bar you see pictured spanning the width of the Yakima LoadWarrior Cargo Basket # Y07070-74 can be removed. This load bar is completely optional (but is included with the kit) and it simply allows you to easily mount various accessories such as a bike rack or ski carrier to the basket. It essentially acts as a roof rack crossbar within the basket to provide more mounting options (see attached image). I have attached a short video demonstration on this basket that you can...

  • Medium-Sized Roof Cargo Basket For 2017 Toyota Tacoma Double Cab
    It looks like your 2017 Toyota Tacoma Double Cab has a crossbar spread of about 44". You can verify this be measuring from the center of one crossbar to the center of the next crossbar. The Yakima LoadWarrior Roof Rack Cargo Basket - Steel - 62" Long x 39" Wide # Y07070-74 that you were looking at will fit your roof rack. This measures 62" long and may hang over the crossbars a bit on the front and back but this is pretty much the best fit for your application.

  • Replacement Cross Bar for Yakima Load Warrior Rooftop Cargo Basket
    Yakima does offer a replacement load bar for their Load Warrior # Y07070 and it also fits their basket with extension part # Y07070-74. The cross bar part you need is # 8870042 and this comes with the Allen key for installation.

  • Does the Yakima LoadWarrior # Y07070 Come with an Extra Crossbar # 8870042
    The regular Yakima LoadWarrior # Y07070 does not come with that bar, # 8870042, but you would use the front and rear bars on it to mount your ski rack. This means that the fairing on the front would have to come off. The LoadWarrior with extension # Y07070-74 does include that crossbar.

All you have to do is simply measure the factory crossbars on your Toyota. The distance between your crossbars, needs to be between 30 inches and 50 inches.

  • Rooftop Cargo Basket That Can Accept Yakima Copperhead Bike Carriers
    The Rhino-Rack Roof Mounted Steel Cargo Basket # RMCB is not designed to have a roof-mount bike rack attached to it. My contact at Rhino Rack confirmed that this rooftop basket is meant only for holding luggage, etc. Even if it were rated for such an application the front wind fairing would interfere with efforts to install a roof-rack-mount bike carrier like your Yakima Copperhead. That said, the Copperhead does fit both round and square bar roof rack crossbars. My Yakima contact did...

    When it comes to which basket would work best for your 2010 Toyota FJ Cruiser I would recommend # RMCB. It is rated for off-road use and has a nice modern look to it. What pushes it above the rest though is it has a higher weight capacity then similar baskets. It is a 2-piece basket so it a simple and quick assemble process and all tools and hardware is included.

  • Will Yakima FreshTrack Fit On Accessory Bars On Yakima Roof Cargo Basket
    The Yakima FreshTrack part # Y03092 fits round, square, aero, elliptical, and most factory crossbars that are less then 3-7/16" wide x 1-3/4" tall so it should fit the bars of your YakimaCargo Basket part # Y07070-74. The minimum cross bar height that the FreshTrack will fit is 5/8" so as long as the bars are taller than 5/8" and not over 3-7/16" on your particular basket you won't have any issues with fit.

  • How Do I Attach My Yakima JawLow to the Yakima LoadWarrior Basket?
    In order to attach your Yakima Jaylow # Y04073 to your Yakima LoadWarrior Basket # Y07070-74 like we did in the video, it requires you to use the 4 provided round bar adapter pieces. I went ahead and attached a picture from the JayLow instructions that show these pieces in the contents section. As far as the mounting process, you will attach the cradles (with the adapters) to the central round bar of the LoadWarrior. After the cradles are attached, you will need to tighten the red clamp...

  • Roof Basket Recommendation for 2012 Toyota Rav4 with Factory Crossbars
    I have a great solution that has been confirmed as a fit for the factory crossbars of your 2012 Toyota RAV4. You would want the Loadwarrior part # Y07070 or the Loadwarrior with Extension part # Y07070-74 as these have both been confirmed as fits. Not every manufacturer has the ability to test fit their baskets on every vehicle like Yakima does. The Sportrack, Curt, and Rola most likely would fit but just have never been tested.
