      Up for sale is my Thule 444 rack, Thule 555 fairing (pretty rare), and a roof rack basket. This rack and stuff will work on a Jetta, Golf, or GTI.

      As can be seen in the pictures, the 444 rack is complete. The load bars are uncut and I have all four (4) end caps for them. All four (4) rubber feet and metal feet attachments are included, and I also have four (4) keys for the locking caps on the ends of the feet.

      As for the 555 Fairing, the fairing is in good condition, and it actually includes the rubber seal on the back (which a lot of fairings out there are missing). I have all three (3) attachments bars, the three (3) clamps, and all the necessary hardware.

      For the basket, it is an unbranded basket, but they go for $100 new, and it has served me very well. Dimensions of the basket are approximately 36" by 46". I have easily put more than a couple hundred pounds in the basket on the rack, and it holds up really well.

      The basket comes with six (6) stainless steel clamps that I used to attach the basket to the rack's load bars. The stainless clamps are great and have been through a couple winters and have accumulated no rust or corrosion. Furthermore, you can see pieces of rubber next to the clamps in the picture, which I used to put between the clamps, basket, and the load bars in order to prevent scratching anything.

      Pictures of stuff:

      Here is a picture of the rack on the car with the fairing, but without the basket:

      And here is a picture of the basket on the rack, not on the car, without the fairing:

      I am currently in the Phoenix, AZ area and would prefer to deal locally. But I can ship if you are willing to pay for all the shipping costs, which is going to be quite a bit if you want the basket too.

      I would rather sell as a complete package, but I might separate depending on circumstances.

      I would like about $400 for everything (about $250 for the rack, $100 for the fairing, and $50 for the basket).

      Feel free to ask questions!

      Thank you.
