Roof Rack/Basket for the KK

I came across a Thule roof basket as a decent price, I think. The basket itself measures are 39" wide X 44" long, but this also has the basket extension which then make the basket 39" wide X 64" long. The side of the basket also has small outriggers that extend 5" outside of the basket sides. The make the over all width 49". This also had the front air delflector on the rack.
Question 1. Do you think this size will look right on the KK?
Question 2. Is $125 a decent price for a used buy perfect Thule rack?

And no this does not include crossbars or mounting hardware.

Sounds like a good deal to me too.

sreno0207, I wouldn't recommend building your own siderails unless you have welding experience. Crossbars, yes. Siderails, no.

As a follow up: I did purchase the rack, and it is in perfect shape. Was recently sprayed with a textured bed liner spray. I have set it up on the KK and it looks good. Now I have to choose between making my own crossbars or buying a pair. If I go DIY, I think I will do three cross bars rather than the standard two so I can spread the weight out over a longer area.
