I have seen some old posts with the same question but never any solid answers, has anyone added a cargo basket/crossbars with the MySky system?


I love the look and utility of a cargo basket, but concerned that I won't be able to open the front panel/remove the rear panel.

Not gonna work with the current cargo baskets, the MySky panel requires considerable vertical clearance in order to pop in and out, most baskets only give you a few inches of clearance. Someone's going to need to design a basket that opens up or hinges out of the way - similar to what has been done for soft top Wranglers to allow their lowering and raising of their tops.

In one of my earlier post I theorized that if you put the cross rails at a certain point, that it will allow the panels to come off, But if one adds a roof cage/carrier, it would have to be small to fit in between pillars B and C. This way at least the front panel can be taken off.

In a way I wish someone would make a sliding roof rack similar to the No Boundaries roof system made for the Ford Escape.

I have cross rails and a cargo basket on my Renegade with My Sky Powered. I have no clearance issues at all. I can operate the powered panel AND remove both panels if I need to.
Mine are the Reese Brand (cheap, i know) from the Wals-Mart. But it's very solid and works very well! Here are some pics:

Brilliant! I would want to use cross rails with a bike rack instead of a basket that would still work with MySky, do you have any recommendations?
