My Kayak Rack
Here is my version of a kayak rack. We have a rather big kayak and it is nearly impossible to easily lift on top of the truck so I made any easier method to get it on top of the truck. The kayak rack is made from 2x6's, 2x4's, swim noodles, electrical conduit and a few pieces of misc hardware. The ramp to load the kayak is hinged in the center so it can fold-up and be stored in the truck bed. The ramp is cover with outdoor carpet to help make it easier sliding the kayak. The bottom of the rack has foam blocks to protect the roof of the truck from scratches. The rack is held onto the truck by straps that attached to the drip rails on the truck roof.
