Recommended 4-Kayak Carrier Option That'l; Fit The Wide TruXedo Elevate Crossbars


I have the truxedo elevate rack for my truck and the crossbars are a bit bulky as they are 3 3/4” wide by 1 1/2” high with a curved top and flat bottom. These crossbars have a t slot as well and I am running out of luck trying to find something that will fit. This Rhino rack with J style looks perfect except it doesn’t look like it will fit my crossbars. Do you sell an adapter or any accessories that would make it work? Keep in mind I’m trying to travel with 4 kayaks at once - 2 doubles that are 12’ long and weigh 83 lbs each and 2 singles that are 10’ long and weigh 50 lbs each. If this product doesn’t work are there any others you would recommend for my situation? Thank you.

For your TruXedo Elevate system in your truck bed, I recommend using the Rhino-Rack Nautic Stack Kayak Roof Rack w/ Tie-Downs # RRS520 which can transport up to 4 kayaks and has a maximum weight capacity of 165-lbs.

Seeing as though you have 2 pretty heavy kayaks, you'd need to also use two sets of the Malone SaddleUp Pro Kayak Roof Rack w/ Tie-Downs # MPG1001; Which is our highest capacity kayak carrier at 90-lbs maximum for 1 kayak.

Also, both of these kayak carriers are channel mounted so you won't have to worry about these not fitting around your large crossbars.
