Recommended Thule Roof Rack with Longer Crossbars for ARE Truck Cap for Kayaks


Good morning and Merry Christmas! Im inquiring about a set of roof racks for my A.R.E. truck cap which sits on my 2015 Ford F150 Super Crew 6-1/2 bed. The cap is has nothing on the roof no rails and Id really like to utilize a pair of Thule 78 square bars. I need to carry 2 kayaks, side x side and they are each 36 wide. I believe im looking for rails, and locking feet. Is this something you can provide? I dont need this right now, Many thanks and Happy Holidays.

The best option for longer crossbars are the Thule ProBar Evo Crossbars like part # TH713700 which measures 79" long and can be cut if needed. In order to use these you'll need the Thule Podium-Style Roof Rack Feet part # THKIT3101, Rapid Podium Feet for Thule Crossbars part # TH460R, and Thule Roof Mounted Top Rack System part # THTB60. This would be a great setup for your truck cap and allow you to carry multiple accessories using carriers like the Thule DockGlide Kayak Carrier part # TH896.

Unfortunately, Thule discontinued the old square bars and the new ones have channels in the bottom so you can't use oversized ones.
