Hauling Kayaks

Hi gang,
Has anyone out there hauled kayaks on a ST D90? I am looking at possibly hauling (2) sit-in 17' kayaks. If so, how and what rack system did you use. With the D90 sitting so high was it pretty unstable?
Thanks ahead of time.

Rick

Two things... You could get the old Thule Set up (Used Only) that attached to the roll bar then take the top off and tie the backs down with a rachet strap, not to the padded roll bar, but attach the strap to the tub or to the rear seat mounts. Then tie the fronts down to your brush bar.

You probably do not need the rack, just take the top off the truck and tie them down like I mentioned. I have river/white water kayaks and that is what I did.

I have a little 9.5 Perception. I just throw it on top of the roll hoops and strap it down. I don't actually kayak, just drive around looking tough
