Bought this cheap made-in-China rear cargo basket from Amazon for install. Seemed like an easy install. Had high hopes, what could go wrong right?

Arrived well packed and in good conditions, holes seemed to be drilled out properly. Then as I proceeded to install it, I realized that the holes are NOT drilled at the correct location. Went back to check their Amazon photos and it seemed like they sent me a different product than shown. (Probably sent me the one for JK instead)

Anyways I was on the verge of returning it then decided it was a bigger hassle, so I just measured and drill out the correct holes myself.

Was a fairly simple install from there on out, and had my gf helping me hold the basket in place while I lined up the bolts.

Looks good.
Tell about the gadgets you have under there. The hub and lights.
There’s a 3 socket 12v adapter mounted under the rack, very similar to this one here:

Great to run the fridge, compressor etc without needing to unplug them back and forth. Also there are individual power switch for each of them. And has 4 usb sockets to run my cameras and lights, that can also be switched on and off with a separate switch.

Also has a magnet light from Harbour Freight down there. Great for when you are out camping and just need grab a light real quick when you are walking around. And stick right back and act like cargo lights most of the time.
