Default Roof Rack Cargo Basket

Does anyone out there run a cargo basket or roof rack for their H3? I'm looking to add a cargo basket to my H3 and wanted to see what everyone was running. If you have pics of your rig, I would greatly appreciate it.

I was looking for something along the lines of a rack like this one, but the ones I found were over $500. Is that what I'm gonna pay?

Thanks!

Plenty of Safari style roof racks out there or you can make your own or have one Kustom made. I went with a rack that sat behind my roof hole because I like an unubstructed view. I also have a spare tire rack (thanks CB) for even more exterior cargo capacity.

My "Kustom" racks on Mr. Blue:

Awesome Pics! Thanks for them. I also love the spare tire rack. Is that Homemade? Where can a fella pick one of those up? The 3rd and 4th pics down, shows an H3T with rack on it made out of round tubing. Who makes that one?

Each picture that has a different rack has the name of the rack above it. I think you are talking about the Rola Rack on CBs Silver H3T. Adding more "RACK" pix.

TAINTER - Yanni's truck with the limb risers is a Rola too, not a Thule

That's my truck. I got my Rola from etrailers.com. Rola Roof Mounted Cargo Basket Rola Roof Cargo Carrier 59504

I got it with the 18" extension. Not a bad rack for the money - $250.00 shipped.
It reaches from the rear of the truck to just behind the moonroof.

It mounts to factory or aftermarket cross bars.

Here's more pix:

Where did you get that light bar along the front of the rig that holds the lights?

That's a "Hilljob" lightbar. They are rare.
There was a guy on here that went by the screen name Hilljob.
He made a small quantity of these custom made bars. I got mine used out of California last year.
The truck in the pictures above with the limb riser cables going from his brush guard also has a "Hilljob" that the other end of the cables are connected to.
