Rooftop Cargo Basket for Use on 2008 Ford Expedition EL with Factory Roof Rack  


What is the largest basket that can be installed on my factory installed rails w. cross bars Thank you


Expert Reply:

We offer a range of roof-mount cargo baskets for your 2008 Ford Expedition EL with factory roof rack, including the Yakima MegaWarrior Extra Large Roof Rack Cargo Basket # Y07080-82 that you referenced. This 74- x 48-inch basket will fit your factory crossbars as long as they are between 36- and 60-inches apart, measured on center.

Do note that the largest cargo baskets may prevent full opening of your rear hatch.

A popular accessory item for use with rooftop cargo carriers is a tire step, like # HE4040. This fully-assembled folding step simply slips over a rear tire to provide a height advantage for easier loading and unloading of your cargo, and stores easily inside the vehicle.

Can this hold my full size spare tire from my 2007 Nissan Armada the Yakima Mega Warrior

Based on my research I believe the full size spare on your Armada is a 265/70-18 size tire (let me know if I'm wrong). This size unit has a height/diameter of just about 32.6", so it would fit without issue inside the Yakima MegaWarrior # Y07080-82.
