ECR Rox Basket

My SW won't fit into my garage with the SD basket installed. I am hung up on the ECR Rox rack below. Mike will make one for me, but freight from the east side to the west side would be a fortune. Any thoughts or ideas?

Find a local shop to use the SD as a template for what you need? Then sell the SD unit.

Yanking the basket is easy, pulling the ladders sucks! So get those basket delete bars. Obviously, you already know about them. Jeff and Brewie both make them.

Exactly goto Home Depot get 2 pieces of conduit and some black spray paint cut to length drill 4 holes and you are done

I said I wouldn't drive it without anything connecting the ladder to the bars. Those bars work but look stupid.

Better buy a truck with ribs than a rack. Women however need a good rack.....

An ARB rack might suit your needs. From the pic you posted, it looks like the ARB rack might sit lower than the ECR rack.
