    My 2008 Tacoma doesn’t have a roof rack and I’m planning on getting a kayak any recommendations on some good roof racks or even any thoughts on how to transport a 10ft kayak thanks

    Have you thought about a bed rack?

    I could probably do that just depending on the price ranges I believe a bed rack would be better. I’m open to that idea do you have any websites I could look at some?

    They sell ladder racks for 85$ but I had to chop off about 6inches and do some welding. The cheap ones are about 6inches above the roof and i didn't like the look. I got a 12ft tandem kayak and a little roof rack doesn't cut it. I've got pics of you need to see mine

    I had to cut the end tubes almost all the way down cause it was in the way of my kayak attachments. Since the back is a tube style ladder rack when you slide the kayak off the rear kayak bracket tilts and makes it easier to load and unload by yourself. I didn't plan it that way but I'll take it lol. 20180518_203747.jpeg

    IMG_6069.jpg IMG_6071.jpg View attachment 18535 Yakima Landing pads bolted direct to the roof and a mega warrior basket with an extension. I can hold 250 pounds easy. With the Q Clips the weight rating is only 125 but this has held over 300 pounds with no issues. I had the same setup on my 2008 and my 2014. This is on a 2017. Really easy to install.
