Roof Basket Compatible with 45 Inch Crossbar Spread on 2013 Toyota Tacoma Doublecab

Question:

I am looking for a roof basket to fit the factory rails and crossbars on my 2013 Toyota Tacoma Doublecab. The crossbars measure 45inch apart on center. I see that the specs for the Curt Cargo Basket C18115-117 states that Crossbars must be spaced 15, 22, or 29inch apart on center. Is this for the C18115 without the extension? Or is this, in fact, for the C18115 with the 117 extension?

Helpful Expert Reply:

The Crossbar spacing of 15, 22, or 29 inches apart on center is for the Roof Basket # C18115 without the extension. I reached out to my contact at Curt Technical and he said the 22 and 29 inches would work with the 29 being more ideal. He also said the 45 inches on center is a possible fit as far as length, but that would put a lot of weight in the center and that isn't recommended without some kind of additional support.

For your application with the crossbar spread being so wide, I recommend the Yakima MegaWarrior Extra Large Roof Rack Cargo Basket and Extension # Y07080-82 or # Y07070-74, or the Thule Canyon XT Roof Cargo Basket # TH859XT-8591XT.All of these are compatible with your roof rack crossbar spread when using the extenders.
