Getting the truck ready for camping, so it’s time to refurbish my old Roof Basket.

I’m attaching Unistrut rails to the underside of the bed rails
And then I’m using Unistrut for the cross bars to mount the Basket to.

But everything is bedlined first

No holes drilled through the body
I only drilled through the plastic bed rail cap

It should sink the basket into the bed some. I don’t want the basket sitting way up top of the bed, but with the mounting hardware I chose and the versatility of the Unistrut, I should be able to adjust the height easily.

Its nice and low profile, but the height is fully adjustable

This will make getting the water cans out easier while also having plenty of room for my generator and firewood and any other camping gear I may want to keep in my truck

The basket really worked out this last camping trip. The crossbars helped hold my generator in place, even without a tie down. Sadly, I didn’t get a picture with the bed fully loaded. Just a couple with my pack and fishing poles.

This last trip help me come up with some more additions or features to the basket. That’s the beauty of UniStrut LOL
