For heavy cargo hauling over your truck's bed, nothing beats the Yakima Outdoorsman 300. It's like a penthouse duplex for your gear.

I had my doubts about this rack, but after the install it has a very solid feel to it! I have 2 tandem kayaks that I haul on this rack (I have 2 sets with 2 crossbars), and they are very secure using this setup. The only issue I had was that my truck has a bed rail tie down system & I had to find a deeper j bolt to attach the racks to the bed rail. Once that issue was solved, the racks are very solid & I would recommend them to any one who has some difficult hauling tasks!
