Roof rack crossbars.

Does anyone have any advice on a roof backet that doesn't require a pair of crossbars or do I need both?

Usually (there could be exceptions) you need roof rack rails, cross bars, and a basket.

Unless you have a custom basket that would bolt to the holes where the factory roof rails attach to (if you have rails). Hopefully that is of some help.

This link was for doing a crossbar mod on a KJ, with a little fooling around it may work on a KK.

Post up some pics of your project when complete.

I'm sure that there might be some differences in measurements for the KK. Post those too for some of the other members to check out.

Here's a question.
On our '08 KK it doesn't have the actual rails just a the black hump
that sit on the roof. If I want the actual rails do I have to replace
them or can you attached actual rails to the base?

that probably sounds confusing and doesn't make sense.
