Roof Rack Mounted Basket Recommendation for a 2012 Jeep Liberty


I have a 2012 Jeep Liberty and have yet to purchase crossbars in order to mount a roof basket. When I cross that bridge what type of roof basket would work best for me. We are moving cross country and I have later plans of installing a bike rack or two as well. Between the Yakima Loadwarrior or Megawarrior and Thule MOAB, which would you recommend for me and give me the best fit?


Expert Reply:

The type of crossbars you get are going to play a factor in choosing a basket. If you plan on getting the factory or dealer crossbars then the Thule MOAB, # TH690, Yakima LoadWarrior, # Y07070, and MegaWarrior, # Y07080, will all fit.

If you go with Yakima round bars then the best fit will be the LoadWarrior or MegaWarrior. The smaller LoadWarrior will be a better fit for the length of the roof on the Liberty. If you do end up wanting a longer basket you could always add the extension to the LoadWarrior, # Y07074, at a later time.

If you go with Thule square bars then the MOAB will be the best fit.

I have included video links for each of the basket that will help in making a decision. This will also help you gauge the size of each basket. I have also included a link to the roof rack crossbar options for a 2012 Jeep Liberty with factory side rails.
