  • Fixed and Adjustable Roof Racks and Kayak Carrier for 2015 Ram 2500 Crew Cab
  • Most aftermarket roof racks are meant to remain in place once installed. There are track-based rack systems that do allow for flexible placement of the rack's foot assemblies but these tracks require you to drill into your roof to install them permanently. The feet and crossbars can be removed once installed but not the tracks. On the linked page you can see all standard aftermarket roof racks (that do not require drilling) that will fit your 2015 Ram 2500 crew cab. These include racks...

  • Rooftop Carriers for SUP and Skis
  • Yakima's SUPDawg Stand-Up Paddleboard Carrier # Y04075 does resemble a rooftop ski carrier but it is designed specifically for use with SUPs which can be 4 to 5-inches thick, a good bit thicker than many skis are when stacked together. Ski carriers like the Rhino-Rack # RR576 can be used with skis or with snowboards (or even fishing poles) but they will not be able to fit a much thicker item like a SUP. What might work for you is a cost-effective combination of a ski carrier, such as the...

  • Roof Racks for 2004 Honda Civic 2-Door Coupe for Transporting Surf Boards
  • We can help you with a roof rack and surf board carriers for your 2004 Honda Civic 2-door coupe.

  • Roof Carrier Options for a 120 lb. Fishing Kayak on a Tesla Model Y
  • I do have a couple options for you. We do not have any roof racks that are confirmed to fit the Tesla Model Y's, but I see that Tesla does offer a roof rack themselves. The size and weight of your kayak also limit your options, but I have an option for both if you have a roof rack or do not. If you have the Tesla roof rack, your best option is going to be the Lockrack Adjustable XL Watersport Carrier # LR54FR. This rack can support a kayak weighing up to 175 lbs. and a width between 28"...

  • Recommended Ladder Rack For My 2021 Ram 1500 Warlock
  • I do have a ladder rack that will fit your 2021 Ram 1500 Warlock, but it will not be the Thule TracRac SR Sliding Truck Bed Ladder Rack - 1,250 lbs, part # TH43002XT-501, because it is not compatible with your truck. The ladder rack I recommend is the Thule TracRac TracONE Truck Bed Ladder Rack - Fixed Mount - 800 lbs - Silver, part # TH27000XT, because it has the same crossbars as the sliding TracRac. If you want to carry a canoe, you might like the Thule Portage Canoe Carrier w/ Tie-Downs...
