for anyone following along...

I contacted Thule, as Yakima had some bad reviews, they said the following would work for my 2020 crew cab f350

clamp = https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07JCWWNSY
fit kit = https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B09MGF7D6V
bars = https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07J2JFG4R
kayak racks = https://www.thule.com/en-us/winter-and-water-sports-carriers/kayak-roof-racks

Not sure which kayak rack I want yet, as I just want to carry as many as possible.

I put a US Rack on. We are happy with it, I have had it for over 4 years now. I did not want to spend the money for it but was overruled, but now after using it this long, I would do it again.

US Rack.

It does a very good job with our 12.5' fishing kayaks.


$2500? I thought Thule was expensive at around $700 wow

Have you priced fishing kayaks? I wouldn't want to trust them to a "budget" rack. [emoticon]
I was serious when I said I did not want to spend the money. My wife and I are both frugal, but she outvoted me. Like I said, I would buy it again after having it for several years.
