Review of the MaxxTow Roof Mounted Cargo Basket on a 2012 Toyota 4Runner


Today on our 2012 Toyota 4Runner we're going to be doing a test fit on the MaxxTow Roof Mounted Cargo Basket. That's part number MT70115. It's going to work with your round, square, aero, elliptical, and factory roof rack systems. We've already got it loaded up. This should give you a good idea of what it looks like on your 4Runner. As you can see, with it on place on our roof, we've got plenty of room to access our rear hatch.

When positioning it on your cross bars, you want to be sure you don't exceed a cross bar spread of 32 inches. It's usable space measures 38 1/2 inches long by 34 1/2 inches wide and it's 3 1/4 inches deep. Now when positioning your basket you want to be sure that your cross bars are between your rungs, just like this. Once that's done, we can go ahead and take our plastic spacer, we'll want to make sure that it's facing up, just like this. We're going to set it in place underneath our basket until it snaps in place, just like that. We can do that for all four sides.

Next we can take our bracket with the two holes on top and we're going to line it up with the two notches on top of our spacer, just like that. Now our U bolt comes underneath and goes up through the elongated holes on our bracket. Once we've got those through we can then take two hand knobs and thread those on evenly on both sides. Then we can repeat the same process for the other three. That's going to complete our look at the MaxxTow Roof Mounted Cargo Basket, part number MT70115.
