Review of a Yakima Roof Basket on a 2019 Ram 1500 Classic


Adam: Hi, everyone. Adam, with etrailer.com.Today, we're going to be taking a look at the Yakima OffGrid cargo basket on our 2019 Ram 1500 classic.So I do have this basket sitting on top of the Yakima Bedrock HD rails. These are going to have a capacity of 300 pounds. And that's going to be very useful because by maxing out your basket, you can actually probably get at least another, maybe a bike rack and a lightweight bike on these rails as well.So Yakima did go the extra mile with this basket. There's a lot of different things you can do with it. First of all, you can actually buy some locking cores here at etrailer.com, just so you have a little bit more added protection whenever you're on the road.Also, another thing you can purchase is this little red section right here.

You can take these screws out and you can actually buy an extension. We do offer it at etrailer.com. And it's going to extend the actual length of this basket, making it a lot easier to fit bigger items.Also, these bars can be used to divide up your cargo, but we have seen some customers spread these out and purchase some bike rack attachments that go on top of these bars, but you could really use it for whatever application you need. Let us know what you use your basket for.This fairing right here is put on this basket just to cut down on that air noise that you get when you're going down the road, but this can be removable for your longer items that you may need that extra room for.This is going to be a sturdy steel design with a nice powder-coated finish. It's going to resist against rust and corrosion over time as you use it.

Also, it does have a weight capacity of 165 pounds, but if it is installed on your roof, be sure to check your vehicle owner's manual to make sure that your roof can handle that kind of weight.So this basket is going to be tied down by four different points. I have three of them already installed. So I'm going to go ahead and show you how to do this last one here.So in order to get this fully faceted down, what we have to do is you slide this piece back. There is a rubber strap here. That's going to protect your bars.

It goes underneath like so. And then it comes up top here, which these little round parts on each end fit in that slot. And there is a fine tuning adjuster here to get the right amount of tension.Once you have the right amount of tension, all you got to do is put that down. And then this does slide back over to lock that lever into place.And that just about does it for a look at the Yakima OffGrid cargo basket on our 2019 Ram 1500 classic..
