What Cab Extender do You Carry to Transport My Two 29-Inch Wide Kayaks Side-By-Side?  


I have a 2020 Tacoma with a 2inch hitch. Need rack to carry two kayaks each 29inch wide. Do you carry a roof rack extender that extends to 60 inches wide for a truck bed extender like the MAL32VR? I would like kayaks to lay flat not on their sides.

I have a great rack extender that works perfect for your needs. Unfortunately, while we do not have an extender to make any of our roof load extenders longer, we do have a rack that has the length you need without any additional length needed. That is the Yakima LongArm Truck Bed Load Extender - 2" Hitches - Aluminum - 300 lbs # Y01149. The LongArm measures 60 inches from end-to-end and comes with a maximum weight capacity of 300 pounds. This sits at 42-3/4 inches at maximum raised height.

If you plan on mounting your kayaks at cab height, you also need the Height Extension for Yakima LongArm Load Extender - Aluminum # Y01150. The extension adds about 13 inches to the overall setup. Also, you can get the LongArm with the extension with it as part # Y01149-1150. I went ahead and attached a video that shows you the LongArm and extension used on a 2016 GMC Sierra to provide you with perspective.

In addition to these components, you can also add the foam pad # Y07417, hitch lock # Y07235, and ratcheting straps # Y05006.

If you need a ladder rack, cradles, or a roof rack to go with the LongArm, feel free to reply with the cab style of your truck, and I can definitely suggest longer crossbars that fit your 2 kayaks.
