Can J-Style Carriers be Used on the Yakima LongArm Truck Bed Load Extender  


Do you have any J-Style Kayak Carriers that would fit on the crossbar of the Yakima - LongArm Truck Bed Extension? I would like to have 2 kayaks in a truck bed 2022 Honda Ridgeline and be able to angle/support them using J-Style carriers attached to the crossbar of the Yakima extension. Thanks!


Expert Reply:

To carry kayaks with the Yakima LongArm Truck Bed Load Extender # Y01149 you need the Crossbar Pad for Yakima LongArm Load Extender # Y07417 because none of the J-Style cradles have long enough bolts for the 2" diameter of the LongArm. If you wanted to try getting longer M6 bolts then you could possibly use the Thule Hull-A-Port Kayak Carrier # TH834 but this hasn't been tested out so I don't really have any insight into how effective this option is.

Attached are some review videos for you to check out.
