Recommended Roof Rack For 1999 Jeep Wrangler Sport Hard Top Compatible with Thule Roof Cargo Basket


I have a 1999 Jeep Wrangler sport with a hard top. Will this basket fit on any roof rack? I currently do not have a roof rack on my jeep but I really want this basket. Which roof rack, at the most reasonable price, would be most appropriate for my vehicle and this specific basket?


Expert Reply:

The Thule Canyon XT Roof Cargo Basket - Steel - 49" x 40" x 6" - 150 lbs, Item # TH859XT is compatible with most roof racks as long as the cross bars are between 20 inches and 37 inches apart when measured center to center .

To get the most cost efficient system that will support this rack and give you the spacing necessary, I recommend the Rhino Rack Roof Rack consisting of:
Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars - Aluminum - Silver - 59" Long - Qty 2 # RRVA150S-2
Rhino-Rack Quick Mount Legs for Vortex Aero Crossbars - RTC and RT Roof Rack Tracks - Qty 4 # RRRLT600
Rhino-Rack RTC-Style Roof Rack Tracks - Channel Mount - 47-1/4" Long - Qty 2 # RTC12JW
Roof Rack Leg Spacer Blocks for Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars - 5 mm Thick - Qty 4 # RRQMVA05.

Many of the roof racks without the tracks for your vehicle would only give you 18 inches of spacing which would not allow for this carrier. I have linked the page to all the confirmed fit options. Let me know if you have further questions.
