Will Surco Safari Rack 5.0 Rooftop Cargo Basket Fit 2011 Jeep Patriot with Factory Rails


Hi there, Im wondering if the Surco Safari Rack 5.0 Rooftop Cargo Basket for Factory Rails - 60inch Long x 50inch Wide SPS5060-1101 will fit my 2011 Jeep Patriot that has factory raised sidebars. Do i need crossbars or any other accessories? Thanks!


Expert Reply:

The Surco Safari Rack, # SPS4560-1101 will fit the factory side rails on your 2011 Jeep Patriot without a need for crossbars. This rack will clamp to the side rails on the vehicle. The weight capacity is only limited to that of your vehicle's roof weight capacity.

In order to load your gear into your cargo basket you might be interested in a tire step like the # HE4040. This adjustable step fits a variety of vehicle tires, and folds flat for convenient storage when not in use.

The only other accessories you may want to pick up are nylon tie down straps like part # RTD4, rubber straps, # EM06736, or a cargo net like part # 59200 to secure your cargo to the basket.

I have included links to the parts listed above and a video for you to check out.
