Parts Needed for Transporting 2 14-Foot Kayaks on 2010 Toyota Tacoma with Factory Roof Rack


I have a 2010 tacoma double cab long bed. It has the factory installed roof rack with the two cross supports. I have two 14 foot tantum kayaks I would like to haul. I see you sell the goal post style receiver hitch rack. What else would I need? Can you provide for me item numbers?

We can get you set for hauling your two 14-foot kayaks on your Tacoma.

A hitch-mounted load support system like the Darby # DTA944 is the way to go. Since you already have a roof rack on the truck's cab you'll simply insert the extender into a 2-inch hitch, either a rear-mounted hitch or a front-mounted one like # 31313.

If you need tie-down straps to secure the kayaks you might consider 4-piece ratcheting strap set # EM31352 from Erickson.

You can also add two of the Darby Foam Kayak Block # DTA924 to help cushion your kayaks. If you want a similar foam block for the factory bars on the cab you can use part # S65156 which uses tie-down straps # S65137.
