Video Transcript for Surco Safari Rooftop Cargo Basket Review

Today were going to review the Surco Safari Rack 5.0, roof-top cargo basket, part number SPS 4550-1101. With this kit youll find the base basket that measures 50 inches long by 45 inches wide, outside dimension. And it also comes with the factory rail clamp kit. This kit is designed to clamp to the raised factory side rails on your vehicle and will not use the cross bars, if theyre there. Its an all aluminum construction, so its lightweight while it still maintains its strength, and its built here in the USA. There are plenty of optional accessories that are available for this basket, items like a spare tire carrier, high lift jack, mounts for off-road lights.

The load capacity of the carrier is only limited by the roof capacity of your vehicle. Once youve found the weight capacity of your vehicles roof, all you have to do is add up the weight of your gear and the basket and make sure its within that capacity. Finally, Surco covers this basket with a 90-day warranty. We already have our basket assembled according to the instructions, so now were ready to fit it to our vehicle. First, well set the basket up on top of our vehicles factory raised side rails. Well slide the clamps in their track and make sure that we get the basket positioned properly, and so that its centered from left to right.

Once we have the position of the basket and the spacing on the clamps set, well go ahead and lift at each corner so that we can access the screw within the clamp. Well tighten it down and this will set our clamps position in the track and will also help set the jaws where we want them. Once we have all four corners set, then we can come back and use the included key tool to tighten down the bolts at each of the clamps from the outside. This is whats going to lock down the clamps to our factory raised side rails and secure our basket. With all four corners secured, were ready to load up our basket and take it out for a drive. Thats it for our review of the Surco Safari Rack 5.0, roof-top basket, part number SPS 4550-1101. .

Really expensive and not easy to mount to roof rails. Once positioned, have to lift each corner of basket and then use Allen wrench upside down to tighten each clamp into place. Probably easier with two people but difficult task doing it alone. I suppose you could it mock it into position, use masking tape or painters tape to mark position of clamps, remove rack from roof, tighten clamps into place then move rack back on to roof. Another option, not simple, easier with 2 people. Despite the expense and difficult install, once it is installed, removing and replacing the rack is easy and secure using the supplied wrench and the unique bolt shape will make it difficult to steal without the supplied wrench/tool. The best part about these clamps is that they look fantastic. You can mount this rack using U-bolts and save yourself $160, but the rack won’t be secure against theft and won’t have such a clean, professional look. I took 1 star off because of the cost and difficult install, but I would still buy them again because the looks and security outweigh the cost and difficult install 739259

They look nice and provide a nice option to mount the basket to your roof rack, but, at least mine, are constantly coming loose - especially off road. 428833

  • Surco Cargo Basket & Adapter Kit Compatibility with 2018 Chevrolet Traverse with Raised Roof Rails
    Yes, the Surco Adapter Kit # SP1101 will allow you to install your Surco Safari 5.0 cargo basket like # SPS5060 on the raised roof side rails of your 2018 Chevy Traverse. However, no maker of roof racks or roof-mounted cargo carriers recommends opening a vehicle sunroof/moonroof when these items are installed. Apart from the risk of interference there is also the matter of noise. Any roof-mounted accessory item, whether a roof rack, cargo carrier or bike rack, will tend to generate...

    The Surco Safari Rack 5.0 Rooftop Cargo Basket - 60" Long x 50" Wide # SPS5060 with clamp on adapters # SP1101 or the 50" Long x 45" Wide # SPS4550-1101 which comes with the adapters are great options for your 2013 Nissan Rogue with factory side rails. Neither of these options requires crossbars for compatibility. I've attached a video to assist further.

  • Are Clamp-On Adapters for Surco Safari Rack 5.0 Compatible With 2018 Hyundai Kona Rails
    The 2018 Hyundai Kona has flush-mounted rails on its roof, which are not the type of raised rails that are required to use the Clamp-On Adapters for Surco Safari Rack 5.0 Rooftop Cargo Basket # SP1101. You can still use a cargo basket on your Kona but you are going to need to mount it on a roof rack and I recommend checking out the rack from Yakima, which fits your Kona and is made up of CoreBar Crossbars # Y00421, RidgeLine Towers # Y00145 and RidgeClip Fit Kit # Y06022. For a roof...

  • Roof Cargo Basket that Fits Raised Side Rails of 2016 Jeep Renegade
    I check out pictures of your 2016 Jeep Renegade and the Surco Safari Rack 5.0 part # SPS4550-1101 that you are interested in will fit the raised rails of it. I also looks like when the roof opens it slides back and stays under the vertical height of the side rails on your roof so the basket would fit without interference. That being said, the cargo basket would make quite a bit of noise and you would most likely want to close the roof.

  • Availability of 8 Foot Long Roof Basket
    The longest roof basket we have available is the Surco Safari Rack 5.0 # SPS5084, which measures 84" long (7 feet) and 50" wide. We do not actually make these baskets so we're not able to modify them in anyway. This is the longest basket that Surco (or any of our manufacturers) produces. Keep in mind that this part is just for the basket itself. The needed mounting hardware will depend on your application. For example if you are planning on attaching the basket to factory raised side...

  • Can Surco Safari Roof Basket Fit on 2018 Jeep Cherokee with Roof Rack
    Thanks for the picture of your 2018 Jeep Cherokee. So the Surco Safari cargo baskets are designed to attach to raised side rails or Yakima round crossbars or Thule square crossbars. I can't quite make out what type of rails you have on the roof of your 2018 Jeep Cherokee but if the rails that run front to back are raised up (can put your hand under them) you can install a Surco Safari part # SPS4550 with the adapter kit part # SP1101.

  • Recommended Surco Safari Rack for a 2006 Jeep Liberty
    According to the Surco fit guide, the correct Safari Rack for your 2006 Jeep Liberty is the Surco Safari Rack 5.0 Rooftop Cargo Basket for Factory Rails part # SPS4550-1101 which is 50" long x 45" wide. The 60" long version may still work for you but unfortunately I cannot recommend you use it due to the surface area on the roof of your Jeep. The cargo basket will work well with your factory raised side rails and will not require crossbars for use. In order to install either of the above...

  • Recommended Roof Basket for a 1999 Subaru Outback Wagon with Raised Side Rails
    Yes, the Surco Safari Rack 5.0 Rooftop Cargo Basket will attach directly to the raised side rails on your 1999 Subaru Outback Wagon, eliminating the need for crossbars. This basket has a sturdy lightweight aluminum construction, is made with a durable black powder coat finish, and features a 250 lb weight capacity.

  • Surco Safari Roof Basket to Fit 2008 Jeep Liberty
    I talked to Surco to be sure and actually the 50 inch basket, part # S5050, is the recommended size for your 2008 Jeep Liberty. The 60 inch, part # SPS5060, might fit but I can't confirm it. To fit the basket on your rails you need the clamp-on adapters, part # SP1101, as well. The adapters and 50 inch basket combined is part # SPS5050-1101 and for the 60 inch basket it's part # SPS5060-1101. If you can tell me which accessories you're interested in adding to the basket I can point...
