How to Carry Kayaks With 2006 Dodge Ram Mega Cab


Hi, I have a 2006 Dodge Ram mega cab that I would like to put crossbars on the roof of to haul kayaks. Are there any clamp on options for this installation?


Expert Reply:

We have a couple of options for you, though I checked with all the roof rack manufacturers and there are no clamp-on roof rack fits for your 2006 Dodge Ram Mega Cab. If you did want to go with a roof rack, the only option is from SeaSucker, which is a vacuum-mounted rack, the SeaSucker Monkey Bars Roof Rack # 298-SX6000B.

This is just as strong as a standard roof rack, using vacuum cups that attach to your roof which makes it really easy to take on and off so it's really convenient. The other option would be to add a ladder rack, and for that there is a really nice cost-effective option for your 2006 Dodge Ram Mega Cab that will allow you to easily carry your kayaks, the Erickson Truck Bed Ladder Rack # EM07706.

This rack uses round crossbars so it will be able to accept a standard kayak carrier with universal mounts such as the Malone J-Pro2 Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs # MPG117MD or Curt J-Style Kayak Carrier - Folding # C18320.

I have added some links below to video reviews of these options for you to take a look at.
