Ladder Rack and Canoe Carrier Recommendation for 2008 Ford Ranger XLT


Heres one you might struggle to answer? : Im trying to figure out if a combination of racks will work on my 2008 Ford Ranger XLT extended cab. Im hoping to set it up to haul my 17foot canoe. Im thinking of one Yakima Outdoorsman 300 for the rear of the truck and a single bar using Q towers over the cab. I need to know if the bars would be relatively level with each other as viewed from the side of the truck. I also would need to purchase only two Q towers and one crossbar, and one Outdoorsman 300. Not sure if you would sell this way? Any advice would be most appreciated. Thanks! Ive attached a image of what Im thinking from an outfit called Oak orchard. Their rear rack just looks a little to wimpy for my needs.


Expert Reply:

The crossbars of the Yakima Outdoorsman 300 are going to sit up much higher than a roof rack would. Why not just use the Yakima Outdoorsman 300 Ladder Rack # Y01136-Y00409 for the canoe? It would have more than enough capacity and would do an excellent job. You could install the KeelOver part # Y04069 on this rack and you'd be set.
