It is installed using yakima rails on the topper then the landing pad goes into the rail.

RangerMuse how are the rails on your cap? did you just bolt into it? if you don't mind snapping a pic, can you just take a close up of where the rail is mounted? thanks a lot!

did you buy some kind of mounts for your hi-lift that are made for the basket or are they just home made?

also from that link you sent (thanks) you bolted yours on, i was figureing thats what i was going to do seeing as i dont care to put a few holes in my shell, were the feet you mounted with attached to the basket from factory or did you have to attach them?

the high lift mounts you should be able to buy at the same place you get high lifts. They just bolt right on.

And i found my basket on craigslist from some guy. The feet are also bolted on and i filled the mounting holes with silicone so it wouldnt leak.
